Burt Reynolds and Ned Beatty in Ein Supertyp haut auf die Pauke (1975)

One of the few actors whose work can connect three, unrelated protagonists from separate studios AND link back full circle: 'Superman' (1978), 'RoboCop' (1988) and 'The Terminator' (1984). Played in "Superman", which his "Deliverance" co-star Burt Reynolds turned down the lead role. Ronny Cox (who also co-started with Beatty) in "Deliverance" played the antagonist in "RoboCop". Arnold Schwarzenegger was considered for that lead role and later went on to act in "Total Recall" (1990) with Cox. Richard Pryor acted in both "The Toy" (1982) and "Superman III" (1983); Beatty was in the former, not latter film. Jackie Gleason (who co-starred in 'The Toy') also played a supporting role with Burt Reynolds in the "Smokey and the Bandit" franchise, as Reynolds was originally to be cast as Superman/Clark Kent. Finally, Ned Beatty also acted in "Shooter" which, by extension, links him indirectly to the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (1990) universe. Actor Elias Koteas was in both movies. Mark Wahlberg (who was also casted in "Shooter") has brother Donnie Wahlberg who performed with pop group New Kids on the Block, alongside the height of TMNT's popularity at the same time.
