And Almost Starring

Episode 19 - The Devil’s Advocate

October 5, 2020

On this week’s show, Jeff and Amy are breaking down the casting of the operatically silly Devil’s Advocate! Which temperamental star almost landed Keanu’s role? Which two Hollywood heavyweights did Pacino think would have been a better fit for Milton? What would this movie have looked like as a full-blown comedy? And was Keanu trying to do a Zach Morris Time Out? Also – we’re Rockin’ with Reeves in Keanu’s daisy-centric workout series and Mark Ruffalo takes on the mantle of the Pope Detective as he hunts that dastardly devil across Italy!


The Devil’s Advocate stars Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino, Charlize Theron, Jeffrey Jones, Judith Ivey, Connie Nielsen, Craig T. Nelson, Tamara Tunie, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, and – wait, was that Broadway’s Debra Monk?; directed by Taylor Hackford
