Chris Klein

  1. Hayden Christensen, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, 2000.
  2. Tobey Maguire, Spider-Man, 2002.
  3. Nick Stahl, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, 2002.   Following five auditions and three screentests, Stahl beat Klein, Ben Curtis, Jake Gyllenhaal and Shane West to Chapter 3. Yet when asked to continue being John Connor in Chapter 4, Terminator Salvation, 2007, he shook the team by quitting. “I don’t care really, to be honest. Sometimes you find that there is better material in small and more independent movies. There’s more risk-taking. I want to keep doing that.”
  4. Dominic Cooper, Mamma Mia, 2007.    Maybe his audition was deliberately embarassing because he didn’t fancy the zero role of Meryl Streep’s son-in-law-to-be. But it became a riot on You Tube… until blocked by NBC Universal.
