And Almost Starring

Episode 72 - Titanic

April 12, 2022

We’re thrilled to welcome our guest, writer and actor Malka Wallick, to help us break down who almost starred in the 90s cultural epic Titanic! Which 80s child star told Cameron that she’d be miscast as Rose? Which indie-darling turned down the audition for Jack? Which country star almost played Molly Brown? And how did Jeff make it 25 years without seeing this movie? Also – we create a Pauly Shore-inspired vocal warmup and attempt to figure out what in the world a “regular phone friend” is!


Titanic stars Kate Winslet, Leonardo Dicaprio, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Gloria Stuart, Bill Paxton, David Warner, Bernard Hill, Jonathan Hyde, and Victor Garber; directed by James Cameron
