Jack Coleman and Hayden Panettiere


Jack Coleman is in Monte Carlo for the Monte Carlo TV festival, promoting The Vampire Diaries and today he talked about an audition he had a few months ago.:

“Jack Coleman came close to playing in Nashville, one of the big events of ABC’s fall lineup. He auditioned for the husband of Connie Britto, a role that ended up going to Eric Close, first because the producers preferred to bet on someone younger and secondly because Hayden Panettiere had been cast in one of the main roles and they preferred to avoid any confusion that could have arisen from Heroes, where they played father and daughter.”

This made me giggle and sad at the same time. It would have been awesome to see them together, but perhaps they thought of  potential future storylines. I hope one day someone will be brave enough to cast them in the same show/movie. :P

Gah, I wish they would have cast him! They have such excellent chemistry! Anna Paquin and Jeff Daniels played father and daughter in Fly Away Home, and they were cast as lovers in The Squid and the Whale 10 years later, but I guess its different for JC and HP since they played these characters for 4 years and casting them as potential lovers in a new show a few years after the other ended could seem weird, but I WOULD WATCH IT! I hope he at least gets a guest spot.
Wow, I didn't know about Paquin and Daniels! *takes a mental note to watch both movies*

Ugh yes, I guess they are paying for creating iconic characters with an iconic relationship. :P I feel like the age issue wasn't really an issue since Jack Coleman said he was close to playing the husband. I mean, the producers/casting people already knew how old he was or how old he looked, so why bother with the audition process? I think Hayden's casting was the primary reason and I believe they were auditioning at the same time, but when they decided to cast Hayden, they thought about this "confusion" (lol we all know what that really means) and then they chose Close instead. Ugh, all I know is, I would have exploded. XD I'm crossing my fingers forever now....

Unrelated, did you know that he has a new show now? :D
Yes I heard about that show! Which is interesting because Hayden was talking to the CW network about developing a show with the same premise a few years ago. Me thinks they will end up in something together soon. I saw the trailer for Nashville, which isn't really my cup of tea, but I will watch for Hayden. Her character seems like a lot of fun. There is a line in the trailer that the older singer says Haydens character is trying to take everything from her (producer, ect.) and that she will probably want her home next. I wonder if Haydens character will try to seduce the husband...we almost had Noaire! I'm so inspired to write a new fic! *scurries off to write*
Ohhh I didn't know that! Ugh, I saw the trailer too and I'm ranting about it. She doesn't look cute in it and she is way too slutty lol. I dunno, I wish she was in something where she looked like herself. But I'm going to take a look too, especially after knowing this. If she tries to seduce the husband, then we will be sure why they didn't cast Mr Coleman. XD YAY for the inspiration! :D I think I'll imagine Mr Coleman in that role, that would make it more fun. XD
