Scream 3 (mentioned only)

David Schwimmer is an actor who portrays Dewey Riley in Stab and Stab 2, but decided not to return for the third film. He was replaced by Tom Prinze.


  • He is the second co-star of Courteney Cox from the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S to be mentioned, the other being Jennifer Aniston. This is possibly a homage to her performance in the sitcom as she was starring in F.R.I.E.N.D.S when filming the first three Scream films.
  • He does not actually appear in any of the Scream films, not even through Archive Footage from the "Stab" films.
  • He would have likely been a victim of Roman if he reprised his role in the third film.
