According to an interview on Last Call with Carson Daly: Episode dated 5 November 2008 (2008),Dana Gould and Harland Williams were the original stars of this film." As Williams described it, "...They did an open-ended cattle call for Bio-Dome. And I guess Dana and myself were kind of like the emerging funny guys around town ... they whittled it down, wildfingers, and it got down to me and the wildcat over here. . . We were locked in, and then me and Dana would go over to some diner on Larchmont, sit in the booth, and eat corned beef, and recite our lines." Gould and Williams recall a deal memo for them to have the job, and the two were deep in planning for the roles. Williams bought fake bugs to practice for a bug eating scene and Gould simply dreamed of "What will it be like when we've done it - when we've made it!" Gould expanded on Williams' testimony, saying, "It was a new director, I think his name was Steven Brill." It is unclear from the interview if Gould remembered the name incorrectly or if plans for a director changed. "And he was like, 'Yeah, I'm going to do this movie, and you guys are going to be it, you're like unknowns, we're going to break you and it's going to be great!' And then what apparently happened was that he went to the studio and said, 'I've got these two unknowns...' and they went, ''Naw, we have these guys to deals,' and he went, 'Okay!' "
