Debra Winger left A League of their own, because of the casting of Madonna

Recommended Posts

Actress debra Winger was cast in A league of their own, she left the film after Penny Marshall casted Madonna, for Debra who trained with the MLB, this was a big mistake.


The role was recasted to Geena Davis, A league of their own is about the short lived all women's baseball league that happened during World War 2, Madonna was casted as Mae "All the Way Mae" and gave us a ballad that remains one of her most universal acclaimed singles "This used to be my playground".


The filming proved to a be a positive experience for Madonna as well, as she was also critically acclaimed for her role, which oddly when ever she's a supporting character, she gets praise compared to the main roles. 


She also struck a life long friendship with Rosie O' Donnell as well, one of her few more loyal friendships, she's defended rosie when Donald Trump went after her in the mid 00s
