If I remember correctly, Raul Julia's name was totally taken off the credits for "Havana" by his request. Supposedly, it wasn't because of money, contract disputes, etc, it was because he publically came out and said the movie was TERRIBLE. :D (I've actually never seen it.)

I'm depressed Oldman only pulled his name over billing. I'd understood it was because the movie (Hannibal) was so unutterably awful he was embarrassed to be associated with it. :emoji_thumbsup:
Maybe Cheadle's accent was supposed to be ridiculous but Ocean's 11 is a LOOOOONG way from Monty Python (where everything is under fire).
Fact is that his accent caused the wrong sort of laugh's here in the UK. If it had been in the style Baseketball then that would have been fine but the movie deserved a better accent. I guess we'll never know until someone tells us one way or the other who worked on the film.
