Why did Debra Winger quit A League of Their Own over Madonna?

I'm reading Geena Davis' bio and she says Winger quit over the casting of Madonna.

She didn't want to act in an "Elvis" film.

I thought Madonna was very good in that film. She had a knack for comedic supporting roles.

by Anonymousreply 3May 18, 2024 2:43 AM

In hindsight it seems weird, but I’d imagine she assumed it was going to be a very different movie built around sensationalizing Madonna. At that time, that was the most logical expectation.

Because Madonna would NOT stop talking about her yeast infections.

Debra Winger is as big a look as Faye Dunaway.

The then dark-haired, blue-eyed Lori Petty was cast as the kid sister because of her passing resemblance to Debra Winger. But when Winger dropped out, because she didn't want to be in an "Elvis movie," and Geena Davis was brought in, Petty feared losing the part. But they kept her and she wore a strawberry blonde wig that matched Davis' color.

Madonna and Rosie O. were the worst parts of an otherwise perfect movie. I always love it when the uggo gets ripped and serenades the dude in the bar scene. Also, is the woman who plays Hatchetface in Crybaby in this? I’ve never googled (I’m being lazy) but she’s underrated as an actress if it is the same woman.

Penny Marshall was so awesome. She and Carrie Fisher were definitely the coolest. Too bad about their health, drug issues etc.

I know someone who was in the film, and did the early baseball training with Winger. She said Winger quit because of a sticking point in her contract, that the producers refused to stick with part of the agreement after Madonna came on boars

R19 with the terrible make up? I think Debra was trying to treat the story more serious and when they started hiring pop singers and comedians it becomes a different thing. Debra is a bitch and not good with people but she was right. That's not the movie that was presented to her. Debra never wanted to be Julia Roberts so she bowed out. It is not that crazy just cause we know she is a difficult bitch.

To be fair, A League of Their Own might be the only film Madonna ever appeared in where her presence didn't wind up completely overwhelming/overshadowing the film's production and press. Marshall kept Madonna's character and presence relatively muted in the film and the film is very much what it is supposed to be and also remembered as what it's supposed to be and NOT a film Madonna was in/ruined/saved, etc. But it was and remains a very rare occurence in any project Madonna is a part of and certainly this was right after Dick Tracy, where Madonna, despite having a relatively small role, wound up consuming the film's press and production to its detriment and its legacy (or lack of legacy). So I can see why Winger would not want to be part of it, because she couldn't have guessed Marshall and the powers that be would have managed to minimize Madonna's impact as no one had been able to do so before and I can't recall an instance where anyone has been capable of doing so after.

[quote]But it was and remains a very rare occurence in any project Madonna is a part of and certainly this was right after Dick Tracy, where Madonna, despite having a relatively small role, wound up consuming the film's press and production to its detriment and its legacy (or lack of legacy).

But Madonna also consumed a lot of the film's press.

Despite hers being a small role, Madonna received top billing with Tom Hanks and Geena Davis.

Lori Petty did not despite being one of the actual leads and playing the female lead in the successful POINT BREAK the previous summer.

But in the early '90s, Madonna was possibly one of, if not the biggest pop star in the world.

Her fourth studio album LIKE A PRAYER (1989) topped the charts in the US and many countries worldwide and produced several hit singles: "Like a Prayer" (#1), "Express Yourself" (#2), "Cherish" (#2), "Keep It Together" (#8).

In 1990, her compilation albums I'M BREATHLESS (#2 in US; #1 in several countries) and THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION (#2 in US; #1 in several countries) were also very successful.

The former spawned the hit singles "Vogue" (#1) and "Hanky Panky" (#10); the latter "Justify My Love" (#1) and "Rescue Me" (#9).

The music video for "Justify My Love" was controversial and banned from MTV but became a bestseller when released on videocassette.

DICK TRACY underperformed at the box office, but that summer Madonna was too busy with the Blond Ambition World Tour, which became a blockbuster and was documented in a film TRUTH OR DARE, released in the spring of 1991.

The film was a critical/commercial success and became the highest-grossing documentary, until BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE surpassed it a decade later.

Furthermore, at the Oscars in March 1991, Madonna and Michael Jackson stole the spotlight from everyone when they arrived/sat together.

Madonna also performed a suggestive rendition of the Oscar-winning "Sooner or Later" (from DICK TRACY) on the Oscar telecast, which people talked about afterward.

So, this Madonna, at the height of her powers, was who Debra Winger resented when A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN went into production in the summer of 1991.

But the joke was on her!

A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN was well-received by critics and became a box-office smash, producing a #1 single "This Used to Be My Playground."

However, Madonna pissed away all of that goodwill a few months later, when she simultaneously released the controversial EROTICA album and SEX book in the fall of 1992.

I think she would have received a Best Song nomination for "This Used to Be My Playground" if not for the EROTICA/SEX fallout.

Hit songs from hit movies usually do.

And did both ALADDIN and THE BODYGUARD really deserve two nods each in that category?

The 80's was a lull time for women in box office. Other than the Winger hits Meryl's films weren't really made for box office. They were what would now be art films now. It wasn't until you could put Julia Roberts in woman running scared roles did it come up again.

In 1993, both Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger had Oscar buzz for two movies each: Hopkins for 'Shadowlands' and 'The Remains of the Day'; Winger for 'Shadowlands' and 'A Dangerous Woman.'

A LEAGUE OF THEIR was her first film, and she carved out a really nice career (she has almost 80 credits, including voice work). I loved her on EXES & OHS. Fans of FRIENDS may remember her as Monica & Rachel's high-school classmate who became an Animal Control officer & tried to take Marcel away.

Madonna said in The Advocate that Debra Winger "was all wrong" for The Sheltering Sky... "so unsexy." This must've gotten back to Debra, and made a big stink about Madonna being cast in A League of Their Own. It would be "a long, hot summer" she threatened if Madonna was cast, promising Pemny Marshall that she (Winger) would make the shoot very difficult for her. Penny would not be bullied, so Columbia paid Winger $3 million to go away.

Penny Marshall had just the right touch for Hollywood comedy films. This and "Big" are two of the sweetest and gentlest films of their era, and they just pop right along.

I think EVITA's main problem is that it was filmed like a two-hour music video, à la Alan Parker's other musical film, PINK FLOYD - THE WALL.

Almost every song is a montage and it gets tiresome.

You can only take so many shots of crowds waving hankies.

It loses its impact after a while.

But Madonna really sells the dying, intimate moments toward the end, like "Eva's Final Broadcast" and "Lament."

Madonna presents very extroverted as a performer. She does not have that as an actor. She's nervous and self conscious. She can't read text and do something with it.
