This episode of the Close Encounters... Minicast sees friend of the show Stuart Giblin join Dan Collacott and Imran Mirza discussing some of Hollywood's most iconic roles and looking at the actors that almost played them.
Ralph Macchio as Marty McFly? Eddie Murphy as Winston Zeddemore? Will Smith as Neo? All decisions that were incredibly close to coming to fruition ultimately before the final casting decisions were made. Would we even have wanted to see anything differently? Al Pacino, unquestionably one of the greatest actors of all time, but would anyone have bought into him touting the Millennium Falcon's distinction of having made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs as Han Solo? Join us for a chat about the actors who made characters their own and see how you fare in Dan's surprise casting quiz to kick off the show.
