Wouldn't the kid be around 20 now? If I remember, the last one came out like 10 or 12 years ago, maybe a little more, and the girl was around 10, wasn't she? I could be wrong, because I haven't seen the movie since it was released in theaters.
The reason Guttenberg wasn't in Short Circuit 2, was becuase he wanted to go on to other projects, plus there wasn't much room for him in the script. Heard he was asking for an outrageous pay, for a small part, so they cut his part to nothing.
But I'm sure if there was room for him in Short Circuit 3, he would climb on top of it.
OK, I guess the time is right for the inside info here. Being a close personal friend of Mr. Guttenberg, let me assure you, he is not doing Three Men and a Teenage Girl. He is currently weighing his options between starring as Bob Newhart in an epic about the great comedian, Michael in the big screen version of Knight Rider, or the lead role in Screen-savers...the new Dee Snider film about a magical, evil man who creates demonic screen-savers. He has indeed passed on Spielberg's pitch to play Indy in the forthcoming Raiders movie. And all those rumors about him playing the lead in the new Buck Rogers movie are just that: Rumors. I am indeed full of shit
