It was revealed during the Gilmore Girls Fan Festival over the weekend that Ryan Gosling auditioned for a “football character” on the show, but didn’t impress some of the audition panel!
“I rolled my eyes because he was late, and he was blond,” casting director Jami Rudofsky said of his first audition (via Vulture). Jami had apparently cast Ryan in an indie film, and brought him in for the audition. Jami added his initial audition was “amazing.”
Jami then revealed that his second audition didn’t impress and the audition panel gave her a hard time for bringing him in! “Everyone was like, ‘Really, Jami?’” she recalled.
It looks like everything worked out for Ryan in the end!
