Ryan Gosling Messed Up His Audition For Gilmore Girls
Ryan Gosling was almost cast on Gilmore Girls!
The 35-year-old nearly won a small part on Gilmore Girls, but he messed up the audition. Casting director Jami Rudofsky told a Fan Fest panel in Connecticut that she’d cast the young star in an independent film, thinking he was “amazing”.
But then he screwed it all up.
“I rolled my eyes because he was late, and he was blond,” she said.
He got a second shot at the audition and he totally nailed it. In fact, he did “amazing,” Jami said, but other producers were far from sold.
“Everyone was like, ‘Really, Jami?'” she recalled, saying that he would have probably been cast as a high school football player in Stars Hollow.
Still, things seemed to work out pretty well for Ryan. He went on to be nominated for an Oscar in 2007, coincidentally when Gilmore Girls went off the air after seven seasons.
He has also gone on to find happiness in his personal life, as he’s been in a longtime relationship with Eva Mendes. He is also the father to two children, Esmeralda, 2, and 5-month-old Amada.
