Episode 42 - The Truman Show

March 16, 2021

On this week’s show we break down the casting of the Jim Carrey dramedy The Truman Show! Which Oscar-winning comedian was considered for Truman? Who was originally cast as Christoff but left production after only a few days of shooting? And what would the show’s producers have done if Truman grew up to be a serial killer? Also – Jessica Fletcher rides into town to help Truman solve a mystery on a very special Murder She Wrote/Truman Show crossover episode!


The Truman Show stars Jim Carrey, Ed Harris, Laura Linney, Noah Emmerich, Natascha McElHone, Holland Taylor, Peter Krause, Philip Baker Hall, Harry Shearer, and Paul Giamatti; directed by Peter Weir
