And Almost Starring

Episode 17 - Working Girl

September 21, 2020

On this week’s episode, we’re looking at who almost starred in the charming 80s comedy-drama Working Girl! Which two-time Oscar winner turned down Tess? Who was originally cast as Jack but got bumped because Harrison Ford was a bigger name? And how unnecessary would a Forrest Gump musical be? Also – coming to NBC this Fall: Peter Falk as The Pope Detective!


Working Girl stars Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin, Philip Bosco, Nora Dunn, Oliver Platt, Olympia Dukakis, Amy Aquino, and the one and only Joan Cusack; directed by Mike Nichols
