And Almost Starring

Episode 39 - Sister Act (w/ Aaron Jackson)

February 23, 2021

On this week’s show, we’re joined by comedian (and Amy Jo’s brother) Aaron Jackson to break down who almost starred in the iconic comedy Sister Act! Which singer/comedienne was attached to star but turned it down because she didn’t think her fans wanted to see her in a wimple? Which member of Hollywood royalty was considered for Mother Superior? And how many people did Eddie Souther punch before he knocked out the right guy? Also – Jeff performs for an audience of nuns and Aaron talks about dancing with Whoopi on the set of Broad City!


Sister Act stars Whoopi Goldberg, Maggie Smith, Harvey Keitel, Kathy Najimy, Bill Nunn, Mary Wickes, Wendy Makenna, Beth Fowler, and Jenifer Lewis; directed by Emile Ardolino
