STAND BY ME (1986)

Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell, Wil Wheaton and River Phoenix hide from leeches on a Stand By Me crane. “We all got on very well,” remember Feldman in a 2012 AV Club interview, belying stories that Kiefer Sutherland’s went a little, well, method with his bullying screen presence. “I happened to be the right age, and happened to be, uh overweight,” Jerry O'Connell told Empire of his role as chubby cherub Vern in Rob Reiner’s coming-of-age tale. “Vern was a little dopey, and when I went on the audition, I was so nervous I left my jacket behind, and I came back to get it and I was like, ‘I, yuh, I, yuh, forgot my jacket.’ Rob said later, ‘That was pretty much when you got the part.’”

Time for another work experience bod to check some facts I think - Theron (Dominic West) didn't trot off to fight Xerxes! He stayed at home to lock "horns" with Cersei! More
