And Almost Starring

Episode 70 - Home Alone

December 21, 2021

For our final episode of the year, we’re joined again by Amy Jo’s brother, comedian Aaron Jackson, to break down the casting of the holiday classic Home Alone! Which double Oscar-winner turned down Harry? Which sitcom star had a murderous take on Uncle Frank? And what’s the deal with that random dog door? Also – we attempt to unravel the McAllister family tree and pitch the Hawaii-set Home Alone sequel: Home Aloha!

Home Alone stars Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, Catherine O’Hara, John Heard, Roberts Blossom, Gerry Bamman, Ken Hudson Campbell, and John Candy as Gus Polinski: Polka King of the Midwest; directed by Chris Columbus
