    Fun fact! James Cameron originally wanted Lance Henrickson as the Terminator and Schwarzenegger as Kyle Reese.

    Michael Keaton As Beetlejuice

    Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice. No one could ever compare...

    I listened to a podcast called "The Beetlejuice Minute," where each episode covered a minute of the movie. It really opened my eyes to how incredibly talented Michael Keaton is as an actor. My personal favorite moment is when he says he wants to get out and Lydia replies that she wants to get in. There's a split second where his showman facade drops and he says, "Why?" It's so subtle and I never noticed it before.

    This is heartbreaking because he was Juno's assistant, which means he killed himself. You can see on his face the confusion and horror at this teenage girl wanting to die.

    I couldn't imagine Temple of Doom existing if Tom Selleck got the job for Raiders.
