Could Howie Mandel Return For A Sequel To The 80’s Comedy, ‘Little Monsters..’

Published

When I was growing up, 80’s actor Fred Savage was one of the biggest child stars around. With films such as, ‘The Princess Bride,’ ‘The Wizard,’ and of course ‘The Wonder Years,’ a television series which ran from 1988-1993. All of these projects made Savage one of the most recognized faces in Hollywood.  Yet, after all these years, my all-time favorite is ‘Little Monsters.’

‘Little Monsters,’ hit theaters in 1989. And has grossed more than $790 mill (USD) worldwide. It tells the story of Brian Stevenson (Fred Savage) who finds out, there is a world of monsters living underneath his bed. He in turn, befriends one of the monsters named Maurice, played by Howie Mandel. Throughout the film, the pair become best friends and embark on a journey to save Brian’s kidnapped little brother Eric, played by Ben Savage.

GameSpot recently reported on some blu-ray extras where the America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel talks about his experience on set.

“Physically, it almost killed me. And I wouldn’t have done that. It’s not good to spend a summer in the Carolinas wrapped in latex.”

Mandel says he enjoyed the cast and crew but he probably wouldn’t have taken the role if he knew exactly what it entailed.

“Do not try this at home. Don’t wrap yourself. I mean it’s a wonderful–Maurice is a wonderful character. It was a fun time; everybody was great. And there were funny scenes, but I was wrapped in latex. Do you know what humidity and latex does? After I did that movie. I wouldn’t even put a condom on. I was so anti-latex. I know that doesn’t sound safe, but I was married and happy but I would not, I don’t even want to say the word latex anymore. But now I feel like I wouldn’t do that again.”

Mandel says, till this day, he has a hard time with the word latex. One could only imagine, as Mandel has been very open about his OCD (Obsessive–compulsive disorder) and ADHD(Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.) On set, Mandel was required to spend long hours in a makeup chair with people touching and applying prosthetics all over him. This had to have been very difficult for a person with the above mentioned disorders.

“I don’t have a GED because I can’t sit in class. I can’t sit. But you have to sit. Not only was it four hours of sitting, but four hours of–I don’t want to be touched. And four hours of [being touched], I thought I was going to snap. And once I was finished, I had to be this happy and joyful Maurice. I really wasn’t that happy and joyful. I didn’t know what I had gotten myself into. They cut like, ‘Oh my god. I’m gonna die.’ At night, it’s an hour to get it off; it was glued on me and my skin.”

Howie mentioned he would be open to playing Maurice again. Considering the modern advancements in cinema technology since 1989, production could possibly remove some of the tediousness from the process of applying prosthetics. It would definitely be fun to see Fred Savage, Howie Mandel and others return to the big screen for a sequel to the 80’s comedy.

What do you think, would you like to see ‘Little Monsters’ return for a sequel?
