Trivia that mentions this person:
The Princess Bride [1987]
  • When Count Rugen hits Westly over the head, Cary Elwes told Christopher Guest to go ahead and hit him for real. Guest hit him hard enough to shut down production for a day while Elwes went to the hospital.
  • While shooting scenes on top of a high grassy slope, Cary Elwes broke his toe. André the Giant couldn't walk up those hills, which was a huge slab, so he drove a rented, small four-wheeler and threw Elwes the keys to try it. Elwes went over a rock and the rock got caught in between his toes and the pedal, crushing his toe. He couldn't delay the shoot and thus shot his scene. In the film, you can see him limping when he's running into the swamp. Costume designer [?] Phyllis Dalton made a special shoe for him.
  • Neither Cary Elwes nor Mandy Patinkin had any fencing or swordfighting experience prior to filming the movie. Thanks to extensive training, they were able to film 100% of their swordfighting scenes themselves, with no stuntmen.
    Jack Reacher [2012]
  • Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, Russell Crowe, Johnny Depp, Cary Elwes, Colin Farrell, Harrison Ford, Jamie Foxx, Mel Gibson, Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren, Edward Norton, Ron Perlman, Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, Kurt Russell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Vince Vaughn, Denzel Washington and Bruce Willis were all considered for Jack Reacher.
    Ella Enchanted [2004]
  • The are a few notable differences from the movie adaptation and the book. One difference in the book, Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, there is not an evil uncle Edgar character seeking to take the throne from Prince Charmont, but in the movie he is played by Cary Elwes.
