Over the course of cinema history, there have been more than a few missteps in terms of casting. Whether it’s a starring or supporting role, which actor plays the part is almost as integral to a film’s success as the story or the special effects. It only takes one bad choice to completely derail a film.

This week we take a look at the worst of the worst in movie casting mistakes. From Anakin Skywalker to Genghis Khan, we run the gamut on the bad decisions Hollywood sometimes forces on us as we each pick our 3 worst movie casting decisions.

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

Things go from bad to worse when the guys discover that the valuable family heirloom is now in the hands of a gangster who demands to be paid triple the watch’s value before returning it. And that's just the beginning...

Do you remember that song from that one movie? The one that came on the radio as soon as you left the theater, causing you to crank the dial all the way up, drop the windows down and scream out of your window in the vicinity of random strangers?

THAT’S the song we’re talking about this week, as we dive into what we consider to be the greatest original film song of all-time. Is it Purple Rain? Maybe Danger Zone? How about Goldfinger?

Grab that broom handle and bring your vocal stylings along for a trip down memory lane as we determine our personal favorites and even whip up a movie soundtrack of our lives.

Don’t you love it when you are watching your favorite television show, and your favorite character gets him or herself into a predicament that you just know they will wiggle themselves out of…and then they DIE?!

Oh, we’ve all been there. The RAGE that seeps through your pores, the visceral reaction to the fact that a character you have spent tens of hours becoming attached to has just been forever ripped away from your heart.

Is it fair? Is it right? Most importantly, is television getting carried away with it?

This is our topic this week as we discuss TV’s recent obsession with constantly knocking off beloved characters. Not only are they killing too many, a bunch of them KEEP COMING BACK!

Disney has been the crown jewel of animation for decades, providing family after family with countless hours of laughter, heart, and joy. Beginning with Snow White, Walt Disney began a legacy that remains unrivaled, and this week, The Hollywood Outsider celebrates his legacy.

This week’s topic brings back one of our most popular segments: The Movie Battle Royale! 8 movies enter our cinematic ring of fire, and only can leave the Champion of the HO Universe. This time, we took on an impossible task and broke down our all-time favorite Disney animated classics to eight final films, and only the classic hand-drawn animation are allowed this week.

Will it be Beauty and the Beast? Cinderella? The Lion King? Aladdin? Bambi? Only one film will survive this edition of The Movie Battle Royale!

Who hasn’t been sitting around bored one day and planned out a heist? Come on! Everyone wishes they could be a part of a heist, but then the thought of spending a bit too much time behind bars catches up to us and we settle for watching them on television or in movies.

Well, this week, we’re doing it! Each host is compiling their perfect heist team to steal a priceless object from another. The rules are simple: You get any 6 characters from TV or film, but they cannot be superheroes or super-powered. Who has the best team when all the glass is shattered? Time to find out!

Stick around after our normal show of news, reviews, and heists – as we will discuss the most recent season of The Walking Dead. Did Rick make some bad choices? What is up with Carol? Who is ‘Negan’? Finally, what did we think of THAT ending?!
