And Almost Starring

Episode 67 - Ghostbusters

November 9, 2021

In honor of Ghostbusters: Afterlife coming out this week, we’re looking back at everyone who almost starred in the original 1984 Ghostbusters! Which SNL alum was the role of Venkman written for originally? Which Oscar-winning rom-com star auditioned for Dana? And what would that original version of Gozer have looked like? Also – we pitch the Ghostbusters burlesque routine you never knew you wanted but can’t possibly live without!


Ghostbusters stars Billy Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts, William Atherton, David Margulies, Slavitza Jovan, and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man as himself; directed by Ivan Reitman
