Misery loves family.
While promoting her film Mirror Mirror (2012), Julia Roberts teared up and cried in an interview while sharing the news about her acting in her first film opposite Meryl Streep, who she claimed was her favorite actress.

Beverly Weston, the Weston family patriarch, was played by Dennis Letts, playwright Tracey Letts' father in the Steppenwolf premiere of the play.

Jim Carrey was considered for the role of Steve.

Chloë Grace Moretz auditioned for the role of Jean Fordham, but lost to Abigail Breslin.

Abigail Breslin (Jean) had a 103 degree fever when she auditioned for the role.

Renée Zellweger and Andrea Riseborough were considered for a role. Riseborough was cast but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Juliette Lewis replaced her.

The role of Violet Weston was originally played by Deanna Dunagan who won a Tony Award for her performance on Broadway (she also played the role in its world premiere at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company). Phylicia Rashad and Estelle Parsons replaced Dunagan later in the play's Broadway run.
