This week we’re joined again by the hosts of Poor Unfortunate Podcast, Conor Perkins and Caroline Aimetti to break down the casting of Disney’s EXTREMELY 90s take on Hercules! Which comic legend was originally cast as Hades but replaced after having already recorded all his lines? Which Oscar-winning director auditioned for Phil? How different would the music have been if they’d gotten their original choice to play the Muses? And Zeus SWEARS he’s never been to this Hooters before! Also – category is: Column Couture!


Hercules stars Tate Donovan, Susan Egan, James Woods, Barbara Barrie, Hal Holbrook, Matt Frewer, Bobcat Goldthwait, Rip Torn, Lillias White, Roz Ryan, LaChanze, Cheryl Freeman, Vanéese Y. Thomas, and Danny DeVito; directed by Ron Clements and John Musker
