Imagine a world in which Scott Holmes played Walter White. I don't want to!

 

Me neither!  But, who says Scott Holmes would have played Walter White?  ;)

Laura Wright was offered two roles in 1997

A Stripper on GL 

A Doctor in AMC

 

She took GL and became Cassie

 

She didnt do AMC cause it was the same Building as LOVING/The City & wanted a change'She didnt say what AMC role but given 1997, Im guessing Dr Allie Doyle who was with Jake & David. Anna Korot got that role and lasted 18 nmonths

In a video Interview with James Lott Jr, Martha Byrne says ABC offered her a recast role on one of the nY shows in 2008 and she was interested. However when the OG actress heard they were  recasting she returned & Martha no longer could do the role.

 

Im guessing given when Martha left ATWT in 2008 and recasts on ABC that is was for Marty Sayebrooke at OLTL

OG Marty Susan Haskell did return to the role but she was also offered the recast of LLily after Martha Quit in 2008

Small World. It's around 44:40 in the video below.

Hilary B Smith stated that when she read for Margo on ATWT in 1983 that Dana Delaney (who had already been on ATWT in 1981) and Mercedes Ruehl also read for Margo and that Justun Deas didnt make recasting Margo easy. Whoever could handle Justin got the Margo role.

 

 

Scott Bryce auditioned for Josh on GL in 1981 then got ATWT instead

Anybody have intel on the following:

Mila Kunis almost booked a role on Sunset beach in 1998 and wanted the role but That 70's show happened so she couldnt do Sunset

 

Leah Remeni said she auditioned for a soap but they didnt like how she said Whore

 

Any ideas on these

 

Im thinking Mila may have been up for Bette's daughter or that mean Girl that wanted Randy Spelling's character

 

No Idea what show Leah could be talking about

Pat Conwell auditioned for Liza on SFT and went on to the role of Tracy Dallas on EON.

 

Was that when Meg Bennett got Liza or was it when Sherry Mathis took over?

OLTL: According to Erin Torpey:  In 1990 Rachel Miner whose Dad, Peter was a director at OLTL, auditioned to be Jessica Buchanan. Erin  got the role

         According to Kirk Geiger:    in 1992 Ryan O'Neal's son Patrick was on the short list to replace Joey Thrower as Kevin Buchanan. Kirk  was cast instead.

 

Chris Mckenna's screentest to play a young Adam Chandler on AMC, got him the role of Joey on OLTL

 

According to Melissa Archer on Natalie at OLTL: Natalie was originally gonna be Ben's (Mark Derwin) daughter with Gina (Lisa Peluso)

Rick Hearst said in the Lochner interview today that he tested for Linc on ATWT, and that he was offered AJ on GH after Sean Kanan was fired. (he turned it down because he wanted a break from soaps)

I wonder if he could do an accent? He might have worked if he could have. I guess it paid off for him though as he got a fairly big part in the last years of Walker Texas Ranger.

I'd love to have heard what other roles Sonia had screen tested for...she said she had 8 screen tests..and not all of them were on GL.

 

I didn't know Catherine Hickland auditioned for Julie on Capital when it started and lost the role.  Also, that she did a blind audition later for Capital and was shocked after she was cast that it was as Julie.
