The citizens of Stars Hollow, and the people portraying them, have some interesting backgrounds. Revelations of double roles, fan fiction, and Ryan Gosling almost joining the show are unveiled by Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life cast.
A lot has been going on and talked about in the Gilmore Girls Fan Festival held in Connecticut. When the cast was interviewed, they were able to spill some juicy tidbits of the show.
First off, Rose Abdoo, who plays Stars Hollow’s local mechanic Gypsy, reveals Gypsy has a crush on Lorelai (Lauren Graham) as she debunked a fan fiction’s story of her and Andrew (Mike Gandolfi) ending up together to which the crowd agreed.
Another thing cleared is Aris Alvarado’s Caesar. Previously, before being known as “Caesar,” Alvarado was spotted by viewers appearing in Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) graduation in Chilton. Are they the same man?
“That was Caesar,” Alvarado confirmed.
Meanwhile, a double role by Biff Yeager as hardware store owner Bob and contractor Tom are confirmed not the same man.
Jami Rudofsky, show’s casting director from Season 1 to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, also revealed Ryan Gosling auditioned for a role and almost joined the cast. Yes, the same Ryan Gosling of The Notebook (2004), Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011), Gangster Squad (2013), The Big Short (2015), La La Land (2016) and a lot more.
It was during Gosling’s pre-Hollywood A-lister star fame. The Canadian actor had worked with Rudofsky in an independent film and despite her initial aversion to Gosling for being “late” and “blonde,” she later on found out that he is actually pretty “amazing.”
With that, Rudofsky had Gosling audition for a “football character.” The audition turned out a cringe-fest and he obviously did not get the role. If he did, it is safe to say he would have been one of Rory’s love interests at some point.
Anyway, things turned out great for Ryan Gosling in the end and with Rory’s love life, well, we will get to see its current state once Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life simultaneously airs its four 90-minute episodes on Nov. 25 on Netflix.
