On the first week of our Spooky Scary Movies Month, we’re breaking down who almost starred in the interminable gothic drama Interview with the Vampire! Which method actor was cast as Lestat but dropped out just weeks before shooting? Who was supposed to play the interviewer but passed away before filming began? And what did Louis think of the Before Sunrise movies? Also – Columbo finds himself on the wrong side of Lestat, we ponder who else is getting the annual Cruise Cake, and this might just be the movie that breaks Jeff!


Interview with the Vampire stars Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas, Steven Rea, Christian Slater, and Thandiwe Newton; directed by Neil Jordan
