To celebrate it’s 30th anniversary, we’re breaking down who almost starred in the pitch-black comedy Death Becomes Her! Which Oscar-nominee could have played Helen? Who was cast as Ernest but dropped out over a pay dispute? And what’s the announced musical adaptation going to look like? Also – Amy Jo gives a dramatic reading from Sweet Bird of Youth, Jeff goes on a Michael Caine deep dive, and it’s Nick Nolte like you’ve never seen him before: massive musical theatre buff!


Death Becomes Her stars Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis, Isabella Rossellini, Ian Ogilvy, and Sydney Pollack; directed by Robert Zemeckis
