Who Framed Calvin School?

Happy Friday, hammerheads!

Little known fact on a Friday: The classic film Who Framed Roger Rabbit was originally intended as a much bloodier affair and was to star fresh-faced young up-and-comer Calvin School in the title role.

However, after only a single day of filming Calvin was arrested outside of The Viper Room after a scuffle with Gary Coleman. School was brought up on aggravated assault and weapons charges and the role was recast with clownish funnybunny Roger Rabbit.

Ironically, twenty years later, it's Roger who languishes in the big house pending appeal of his conviction for the murder of Captain Carrot who had a well-publicized affair with Jessica Rabbit in the late 90s.

Calvin School's current whereabouts are unknown.
