On this week’s listener request episode, we’re celebrating Hanksgiving with the charming comedy Big! Which Oscar-nominee wanted to star but was considered “box-office poison” at the time? Who was originally cast as Susan but had to drop out due to her pregnancy? And is this a horror film for Mercedes Ruhl’s character or what?
