Allison Williams

  1. Alona Tal, Broken City, 2012.        “She was feisty, but she was a little on the younger side,” said the star and producer, Mark Wahlberg, after testing with the Girls girl. “A lot of people wanted a name, so we read every single person, Alona just came in and did it every time, you know.” Added 

director Allen Hughes: “She stepped up to Mark in a way that none of those other young ladies did.”
  2. Kate Mara, Fantastic Four, 2014.       Marvel wanted the Four back and offered Fox an extension on its Daredevil II plans. No way! In the mix for the third Susan Storm/The Invisible Woman were Williams (daughter of the disgraced NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams), Sasha Pieterse, Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan Emmy Rossum, Samira Wiley and director Josh Trank’s favourite: Allison Williams. He then bullied Mara for being the suits’ choice. Film flopped. (Only ever made to save the rights). Hollywood Reporter critic Todd McCarthy slapped it down as “a 100-minute trailer for a movie that never happens.”Marvel icon Stan Lee saw it coming and refused his usual seal-of-approval cameo.
