And Almost Starring

Episode 66 - Carrie

October 26, 2021

For our second horror film of October, we’re going back to the very first Stephen King adaptation to break down the casting of Carrie! Which role did Sissy Spacek almost play before nailing her audition for Carrie White? Which sitcom star was almost cast as Tommy Ross? And whose school library has so many books on telekinesis? Also – we get obsessed tracking Hat Girl and pitch Richard Linklater’s secret Carrie film: Girlhood!


Carrie stars Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, John Travolta, Nancy Allen, William Katt, P.J. Soles, and Betty Buckley; directed by Brian De Palma
