And Almost Starring

Episode 30 - Die Hard

December 22, 2020

For our first winter holiday-themed episode, we’re looking at everyone who was almost cast in the action classic Die Hard! Which famous crooner passed on John McClane? Which action legend was considered for Holly? Which Jurassic Park actor turned down a role? And would you rather win an Oscar or have lunch with Alan Rickman every day for a month? Also – Amy Jo can never look at the dad from Home Alone the same way again, and we find the one element that Die Hard is missing: a live bear!


Die Hard stars Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Reginald VelJohnson, Paul Gleason, William Atherton, De’voreaux White, Hart Bochner, James Shigeta, Clarence Gilyard Jr., Alexander Godunov, Robert Davi, and Grand L Bush; directed by John McTiernan
