And Almost Starring

Episode 50 - Flashdance

May 11, 2021

On this week’s episode, we’re breaking down everyone who almost starred in the awesomely 80s Flashdance! Which Golden Globe-winner berated the director for taking a call during her audition for Alex? Which rock star turned down Nick? And what the heck would the 2 hour and 20-minute version of the movie have looked like? Also – we imagine a Saturday Night Fever/Flashdance crossover, freak out over the film’s Clue connection, and pitch the sure-to-be smash hit: Joan on Ice!


Flashdance stars Jennifer Beals, Michael Nouri, Lilia Skala, Sunny Johnson, Lee Ving, and Cynthia Rhodes; directed by Adrian Lyne
