Katey Rich, Emily VanDerWerff, and Fran Hoepfner are the only members of the club who has never appeared on a Blank Check: Special Features episode. There are several guests on the cusp of joining.

Other Members[]

While not guests on the show, several actors have appeared in 5 (or more) films across different miniseries covered on the main feed of the podcast. This is because many directors have actors that are frequent collaborators or muses, like Tim Burton and Johnny Depp or John Carpenter and Kurt Russell, who would make it in within a single miniseries. And, as the motto says, it's tough to make the five.
