On this week’s show, we’re breaking down everyone who almost starred in Cameron Crowe’s excellent Almost Famous! Which Oscar-winning A-lister was set to play Russell but dropped out? Which celebrated director turned down the chance to play Penny Lane? And how was Philip Seymour Hoffman this good as Lester when he had the flu the entire shoot? Also – Jeff’s coworker claims to be auditioning for Batman, and we attempt to break down a wild-sounding children’s film from Australia!
Almost Famous stars Patrick Fugit, Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Jason Lee, Zooey Deschanel, Michael Angarano, Anna Paquin, Fairuza Balk, Noah Taylor, Jimmy Fallon, Bijou Phillips, and Philip Seymour Hoffman; directed by Cameron Crowe
