On this week’s listener request episode, our Dog Days month gets super silly as we break down who almost starred in 1984’s Supergirl! Which three-time Oscar nominee was up for the title role? Which country music legend turned down a part? And why does Peter O’Toole keep saying, ‘squirt’ so much?? Also – we pitch the muppetized version of the movie we most want to see: Superpig!


Supergirl stars Helen Slater, Faye Dunaway, Peter O’Toole, Mia Farrow, Brenda Vaccaro, Peter Cook, Simon Ward, Marc McClure, Hart Bochner, and Maureen Teefy; directed by Jeannot Szwarc
