Doubt this is new to anyone, but there's an article posted today on Yahoo marking the 20th anniversary of To Wong Foo. It mentions a couple things I didn't know: RSL specifically auditioned for the role that would go to Patrick Swayze -- as did Robin Williams (I guess they were considering a wide age range) and Mel Gibson???

Excerpt:

According to various sources, the list of stars who auditioned — all of whom agreed to screen tests in drag — included Robert Downey Jr., Billy Baldwin, Gary Oldman, Matthew Broderick, James Spader, John Cusack, Mel Gibson, Robert Sean Leonard, Willem Defoe, John Turturro, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, and Robin Williams ....

“John Cusack looked just like his sister Joan,” Beane recalled in a 2006 interview with Gay City News. “Robert Sean Leonard was stunningly beautiful, Audrey Hepburn. James Spader — also beautiful. Willem Dafoe looked the way Mary Tyler Moore does now — the Joker’s sister, with that mouth. John Turturro — not pretty.”
