And Almost Starring

Episode 14 - Being John Malkovich

August 31, 2020

On this week’s show, we’re gearing up for the release of Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things by looking back at his first film: Being John Malkovich! Which A-list star did New Line Cinema want in the title role? Which actress was dropped as Lotte when Cameron Diaz showed interest? And how delightfully random was that Being John Monkey-vich sequence? Also – John Cusack and Malkovich bond over their mutual disdain of Con Air, and we rank Craig’s street puppet show on our list of ‘Horniest Times Square Acts’.


Being John Malkovich stars John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener, Charlie Sheen, Orson Bean, Mary Kay Place, Octavia Spencer, and John Horatio Malkovich as himself; written by Charlie (Kauf Syrup) Kaufman and directed by Spike Jonze.
