And Almost Starring

Episode 74 - Arthur

April 26, 2022

On this week’s episode, we’re looking at everyone almost cast in the hilarious 1981 comedy Arthur! Which actor was originally cast in the titular role but replaced by Dudley Moore after the success of 10? Which sci-fi icon was meant to play Hobson? And why was Liza dressed like a concession stand in her first scene? Also – we pitch the Dudley Moore-starring Lord of the Rings movie you can’t possibly live without!


Arthur stars Dudley Moore, Liza Minelli, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Jill Eikenberry, Stephen Elliot, Ted Ross, Barney Martin, and John Gielgud; directed by Steve Gordon
