You’ve seen him play Dracula and Sherlock Holmes, Sith lords and dark wizards, but have you ever heard Christopher Lee sing... about booze? And doing so in an effort to corrupt an alcoholic superhero into falling off the wagon? While surrounded by sexy back-up dancers and a goblin?
If you can answer yes to all of the above, then you’ve obviously see the 1983 Australian superhero musical comedy The Return of Captain Invincible.
From Philippe Mora, the director of Howling III: The Marsupials, The Beast Within, and Communion, and Steven E. de Souza, the writer of 48 Hours, The Running Man, and Die Hard (who co-wrote with Andrew Gaty), comes a musical comedy starring Alan Arkin as a bumbling alcoholic superhero (you thought Hancock did it first?) lured out of drunken retirement to save the world when his old nemesis Mr. Midnight (Lee) steals a military superweapon.

Below, our Castle Round Rable team of Chandel Charles, Jim Garner, and Christine Orlando are joined by Castle fan Amanda from The 12th Fan Forum to ponder who was the biggest scaredy cat at the precinct and which celebrities made our bucket lists.

Chandel: Probably when Castle initially watched the deadly DVD. His face at the end, upon realizing the consequences was really worth a screenshot.
