On our second listener requested episode, we’re breaking down the casting of the glitteringly bombastic Moulin Rouge! Which rock singer was pissed at Nicole Kidman for beating her to Satine? Which British comedian was up for Lautrec? Which Lord of the Rings star almost landed a role? And is this movie Michael Bay for drama kids? Also – Jeff shares embarrassing high school memories, and the Muppets take Moulin Rouge!


Moulin Rouge stars Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, John Leguizamo, Jim Broadbent, Richard Roxburgh, Jacek Koman, Caroline O’Connor, Natalie Mendoza, and Kylie Minogue; directed by Baz Luhrmann
