For our third week of October, we’re breaking down everyone who almost starred in Tim Burton’s suburban fantasy Edward Scissorhands! Which celebrated comedian auditioned multiple times for the title role? Which John Hughes regular was up for Kim? And why didn’t anyone think to cover those scissor hands with some wood knife blocks? Also – we ponder how Edward would fare against vampires and pitch a new side podcast: North by NorthWiest!


Edward Scissorhands stars Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest, Anthony Michael Hall, Alan Arkin, Kathy Baker, Robert Oliveri, Conchata Ferrell, and Vincent Price; directed by Tim Burton
