The OC premiered 17 years ago. The casting director revealed who was up for the role of Ryan Atwood.
Ryan, was the role that was the last one they got done out of the series regulars.
Garett Hedlund, they wanted to test him but he got Troy (the Brad Pitt movie) at the same time.
Chris Pine, was really really really good but his skin was really really bad.
This Is Us star Justin Hartley auditioned too.
Ben McKenzie came from Warner Brothers from another pilot he was testing for that he wasn’t going to get.
Olivia Wilde and Kate Mara had been in the running for Marissa.
Who would you pick as Ryan Atwood ?
