The Actor Who Was Fired


On the DVD bonus feature of a 2003 interview with Topol, he mentions the (drunk) "well-known" British actor who was fired by the director for not knowing who/what the Medician stars were.

Was this Richard Burton?

Does any one have any idea?

reply

I can't imagine Burton playing a supporting role in this long unengaging production. Especially as the lead is a non-actor.

Hey, ALL ACTORS are drunks!

Could have been Burton, Richard Harris, Oliver Reed, or Peter O'Toole. They all would have fit that bill.. I'd put my money on Reed.
