And Almost Starring

Episode 18 - Inside Man

September 28, 2020

On this week’s show, we’re looking at who almost got cast in Spike Lee’s super enjoyable thriller Inside Man! Who was supposed to play Jodie Foster’s role back when Ron Howard was attached to direct? Which actor in the film almost got cast in a completely different role? And whose idea was it to cover up Clive Owen’s gorgeous face for so much of the movie? Also – Rootin’ Tootin’ Russell is yee-hawin’ his way through this bank heist, and Jeff and Amy Jo finally watch Grease 2!


Inside Man stars Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Willem Dafoe, Daryl Mitchell, James Ransone, Marcia Jean Kurtz, and the ageless Christopher Plummer; directed by Spike Lee
