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
