Stop everything you’re doing: Ryan Gosling once auditioned for Gilmore Girls!! This is officially our new everything. Here’s the story:
Gilmore Girls casting director Jami Rudofsky told Buzzfeed that she first discovered Ryan when casting for an independent film.
“He was late, and I rolled my eyes because he was late, and he was blonde. I thought he was giving attitude―what I didn’t realize was that he was in character. He did the audition, and it was one of the most amazing auditions that I’ve ever seen.”
Then when she got the gig on Gilmore Girls she immediately thought of him and convinced Amy Sherman-Palladino and the gang to give him an audition.
“I was thinking ‘I can’t wait for them to meet him’ and I am talking him up. I’m like, ‘Amy [Sherman-Palladino], guys, he’s the best actor. I’m telling you, he is amazing.’ So he came in, I think it was a football character? He auditioned, and it kind of fell flat. And Amy was like, ‘Really, Jami?’”
WHAT?! We can’t believe that Ryan gave a bad audition! Perhaps he was having an off day? Just think, Rory’s whole life could have been changed. We totally would have voted for Ryan Gosling over Logan any day!
