"La La Land" actor, Ryan Gosling, 35, could have played the role of one of Rory Gilmore's boyfriends had he not arrived late for his audition. This bit of information was released by Jami Rudofsky, casting direction of "Gilmore Girls."

Let's think about this

Now that we have this information it is hard not to imagine what Gosling's career would have turned out like had he starred as one of Rory's boyfriends. Then the brain starts to shift and think about which one of her handful of boyfriends it would have been. Jared Padalecki, "Supernatural" star, played Rory Gilmore's high school sweetheart.

If Gosling had played the role of Forester, would Padalecki have the notoriety he needed to land himself on the widely popular "Supernatural"?

After Rory was done with Dean, she moved on to Luke Dane's nephew, Jess Mariano, played by Milo Ventimiglia. Rory had a college boyfriend, Logan Huntzberger, played by Matt Czuchry. It's hard to imagine how some of the shows these two actors played in, "Heroes," "Chosen," "Gotham," "The Good Wife," and "Friday Night Lights" would have turned out.

Ryan Gosling wasn't given a second chance

Rudofsky believed in Gosling's ability to be a part of the "Gilmore Girls" cast, but the rest of the crew was not in approval mode. While Rudofsky thought he was amazing, his colleagues didn't feel the same, unable to be impressed.

According to Movie News Guide, "Jami Rudofsky was with George Bell, dialogue coach and Valeria Campbell, costume supervisor when she narrated the audition. Mara Casey, casting director, Stan Zimmerman, writer, and Sheila Lawrence, writer-producer, were also with her when she revealed the Ryan Gosling experience."

Rudofsky went on to say that eyes were rolled and heads were nodded because Gosling was blonde.

He was given a chance to do another audition, but did not get that role either. These days Gosling is getting nods in the right direction for his performance in "La La Land" opposite Emma Stone. It seems Gosling is doing well these days despite losing out on the "Gilmore Girls" role.

"La La Land" is the story of a struggling, almost down and out musician, and an actress who is looking for her big Hollywood break. It's a movie that shows the dilemma one faces when choosing between a love life and ambition.

"Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" returns to Netflix on November 25, 2016.
