And Almost Starring

Episode 78 - The Breakfast Club

May 24, 2022

On this week’s episode, we’re traveling back to the 80s to break down everyone who almost starred in the HS classic The Breakfast Club! Which double Oscar-winner was up for both Claire and Allison? Which comedy legend was cast as the janitor but got replaced when he decided to play him as a heavily bearded Russian? What would the proposed sequels have looked like? And did this movie really invent the phrase ‘Eat my shorts’? Also – it’s the Wet Hot American Summer/Breakfast Club mashup that you never asked for but can’t possibly live without!


The Breakfast Club stars Emilio Estevez, Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall, John Kapelos, and Paul Gleason; directed by John Hughes
