Please don’t judge us yet, they do get better!

Season 1, Episode 1

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Nicolas Cage

From: It’s our first film! We haven’t leapt yet.

Chosen by:
Actor 
Film (Glenn)

Nicolas Cage was chosen as our starting actor because, well, why wouldn’t you pick Nic Cage any opportunity you get? To start our leaping journey Glenn chose Adaptation as opposed to any of his other amazing films as it’s one of his favourite films, and Scott and Mike have quickly realised that inviting Glenn to do this podcast with them may have been a mistake if he keeps choosing films they don’t love.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Brian Cox

To: The Bourne Identity

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Scott)

Brian Cox played real life screenwriting educator Robert McKee in Adaptation, stealing every scene he was in. In The Bourne Identity he plays a completely different role, CIA deputy director.
