During her appearance, Jane denied that she ever auditioned to play Phoebe Buffay on Friends (a role that went to Lisa Kudrow), but did reveal another iconic role that got away.

“In the ’90s, I auditioned for a movie [called] A League of Their Own in Chicago,” she said of the 1992 movie, directed by Penny Marshall.

Rosie O’Donnell ended up getting the part, but I auditioned. I had to play baseball and the whole thing. I didn’t get it. It was heartbreaking,” Lynch revealed.

She’s about to take on another role in an iconic series – find out which one!
