Katherine Heigl Auditioned For Michelle Williams' Role on 'Dawson's Creek'

Katherine Heigl could have been cast in the role of Jen on Dawson’s Creek, it was just revealed in the new EW reunion cover story.

The role ended up going to Michelle Williams, of course, but creator Kevin Williamson explained what happened.

“She looked slightly older at that time. Even though she was younger, I just think she was more mature. She gave a great audition, I remember we were all sort of like, ‘Wow, she’s good.’”

He then explained that when Michelle “walked in and she came across as an angel,” she had the role.
