I think I can help you with some of these.
: : "Cast Definitely Not Returning: Shannon Doherty (Mallrats),
This is probably b/c Kevin rips into Shannon's (still?) beau Rob Weiss, director of AMONGST FRIENDS. Apparently, Robby was a snob, and might've killed someone. But for more on that, read Pierson's wonderful SPIKE MIKE SLACKERS & DYKES (which includes the Converrsation with Kevin bashing the guy)
: Linda Fiorentino (Dogma),
Again, Kevin's stated that he wasn't happy with her performance or work ethic during DOGMA (check the summaries)
: Claire Forlani (Mallrats),
I got nothing for you here. Wasn't she on Kevin's "Dream Cast" list? Apparently, I think Kev liked her, but she was ashamed of her involvement in the flick.
: Salma Hayek (Dogma),
Again, don't know. I thought she was good, but most critized that her character was useless. (If you ask me, she was a modern day Glenda the Good Witch) Again, I don't think Kevin was unhappy with her.
: Jeremy London (Mallrats)."
As the boys stated on the commentary, he was stoned all the time. Plus, he was just out and out bad in the flick.
So there you have it...possible reasons for non-involvement for all these people.
Granted, I think at least Hayek and Forlani were not left out for any reason. Most directors work with an actor only once anyway.
