And Almost Starring

Episode 12 - Mortal Kombat

August 17, 2020

This week – GET OVER HERE – it’s the 25th anniversary of the stupidly watchable Mortal Kombat movie! Which Hollywood star was originally cast as Sonya Blade but had to leave production after breaking her wrist? Which Oscar-winner turned down Raiden so he could focus on his golf game? And why was Sonya dressed like Shrek the last third of the film? Also – meet Manny, the medic/security guard who doesn’t care how big a celebrity you are: get off his set!


Mortal Kombat stars Robin Shou, Christopher Lambert, Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Linden Ashby, Talisa Soto, Trevor Goddard, and Prince Goro as himself; directed by Paul W.S. Anderson
