When we think of Chris Farley, we think of Matt Foley and Tommy Boy. The film that perfectly displayed Farley’s physical prowess and Spade’s dry, sarcastic jabs also showcased their precious bromantic chemistry. Here’s 15 behind-the-scenes nuggets about a couple of guys trying to save Callahan Auto.

ROB LOWE UNCREDITED AIR CRACKED.COM Despite having a major speaking role as Tommy's step brother, Paul Barish, Rob Lowe remains uncredited. Lowe was contractually obligated to Stephen King's 'The Stand' and couldn't legally sign with another project, so he appeared in Tommy Boy as a favor to friend, Chris Farley.

CHRIS FARLEY: STUNTMAN CRACKED COM If anyone was gonna fall flat on his face through a coffee table, it was gonna be Farley. Producer Michael Ewing told him, Chris, we'll get some stunt guy to come in and do this, and he said absolutely not. Не was completely dedicated to doing all his own comedic stunts.
