And Almost Starring

Episode 20 - The Silence of the Lambs

October 12, 2020

On the second week of our month-long Horror lineup, we’re looking at the casting of the Best Picture winner: The Silence of the Lambs! Which two-time Oscar winner was supposed to direct AND had his choice of playing Hannibal or Jack Crawford? Which rom-com star turned down Clarice due to the violent subject matter? And what’s a creepier title: Silence of the Lambs or Butterfly Kisses? Also – Hannibal joins the Breakfast Club and we try to figure out which movie owes a bigger debt to Silence of the Lambs: Skyfall or Zootopia?


The Silence of the Lambs stars Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Scott Glenn, Ted Levine, Brooke Smith, Kasi Lemmons, Frankie Faison, and Anthony Heald; directed by Jonathan Demme
