And Almost Starring

Episode 47 - Training Day

April 20, 2021

On the third week of Oscars month, we’re looking at everyone almost cast in 2001’s Training Day and whether anyone else could hold a candle to Denzel Washington’s tour-de-force performance as Alonzo! Which Marvel star was dropped from playing Jake? Which action heavyweight turned down Alonzo? And whose idea was that green-tinted ‘weed vision’? Also – move over Godzilla as Jeff pitches: Denzilla vs Kong!


Training Day stars Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Scott Glenn, Tom Berenger, Cliff Curtis, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eva Mendes, Macy Gray, Harris Yulin, Raymond J. Barry, Raymond Cruz, Peter Greene, and Terry Crews; directed by Antoine Fuqua
