Just how well do you know your films? Did you know, for example, that rather than use CGI, Tim Burton had 40 squirrels trained to crack nuts for Charlie & The Chocolate Factory? Or that Ryan Gosling was cast as Noah in The Notebook because the director wanted someone “not handsome”? Did you know that Kevin Spacey was cast in Se7en a mere two days before filming began?
