And Almost Starring

Episode 51 - The Mummy

May 18, 2021

On this week’s listener request episode, we look at everyone who almost starred in 1999’s delightful The Mummy! Which Batman star turned down the role of Rick? Which method Oscar-winner was sought for the titular role? And after it worked the first time, why didn’t they just keep launching cats at the mummy? Also – Judi Dench refuses to take ‘no’ for an answer, and we get an absolute banger of a Veggie Tales song stuck in our heads.


The Mummy stars Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo, Kevin J. O’Connor, Jonathan Hyde, and Oded Fehr; directed by Stephen Sommers
