And Almost Starring

Episode 36 - Face/Off

February 2, 2021

This week on the show, we’re looking at who almost swapped faces in the wonderfully ridiculous Face/Off! Which macho heavyweights were considered for Archer and Troy? Which Bostonian leading man turned down Pollux? And would you rather switch faces with a chimpanzee or a velociraptor? Also – Cage and Travolta go to boot camp to play theatre games and recreate scenes from Duck Soup!


Face/Off stars John Travolta, Nicolas Cage, Joan Allen, Alessandro Nivola, Gina Gershon, Dominique Swain, Nick Cassavetes, Colm Feore, John Carroll Lynch, Robert Wisdom, Chris Bauer, Margaret Cho, Thomas Jane, and CCH Pounder; directed by John Woo
