Ryan Phillippe

  1. Ethan Hawke, Training Day, 2000.     Denzel Washington read young actors to be his fellow cop, while they were all holding fire, hoping to win the  Spider-Man franchise.   Tobey Magurie won both gigs, until Hawke flew in. 
  2. Heath Ledger, The Patriot, 2000.      As Mel Gibson’s son - murdered by a sadistic British officer -   during the American Revolution.
  3. Hayden Christensen, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, 2000.
  4. Olivier Martinez, Unfaithful, 2001.   For his passionate US update of Madame Bovar (well, Claude Chabrol’s La femme infidèle, 1969)  (same thing) UK director Adrian Lyne saw six potential husbands, 13 cheating wives - but just three possible lovers for Diane Lane. Phillippe and Brad Pitt were front-runners until Lyne decided the guy should be French. And said Chicago critic Roger Ebert, able to suspend a woman indefinitely in any position during sex. French guys adored this commercial for Ze French lurverrrrs! .
  5. Eion Bailey, Mindhunters, 2002.      Ten Litle Indians meets an FBI serial killer training unit...   Not released (more like escaped) until 2005.
  6. Gabriel Mann, Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist, 2003.
  7. James D’Arcy, The Exorcist: The Beginning, 2003.
  8. Christian Slater, Mindhunters, UK-Holland-Finland-US, 2004.      Surprisingly for a Finnish director (Renny Harlin) and an all-afrliun)_ and an all-American cast, the overall influence was Agatha Christie’sclosed-world-murders formula. Only louder.
  9. Cuba Gooding Jr, Shadowboxer, 2005. Schedules, schmedules!   “I often get a job because of how I look. I hope that I keep the job because of how I act.”
  10. Aaron Eckhart, The Dark Knight, 2007.
  11. Chris Evans, Captain America: The First Avenger, 2010..   The first screen version of the WWII propaganda comicbook hero  - Defender of the Defenceless - since Republic’s 1944 serial (with Dick Purcell), two 1979  tele-quickies (Rep Brown) and the 1989 movie (Matt Salinger, son of the monumental JD, no less). A 1981 Universal plan for Jeff Bridges never flew. Nor did Cannon’s 1984 take which UK director Michael Winner never got around to casting (well, not out loud). Also missing the 2010 nine-picture deal for Cap Am sequels, Avengersmovies and cross-overs were… Jensen Ackles, Wilson Bethel, Michael Cassidy, Dane Cook, Chace Crawford, Garrett Hedlund, Kellan Lutz, Johnny Pacar, Scott Porter, Alexander Skarsgård, Will Smith, Sebastian Stan (chosen for Bucky Barnes), Channing Tatum (in last three), Mike Vogel, Sam Worthington.  Plus two of the Jonas brothers  band (Joe and Kevin), three of the TV-Marvelverse: Wilson Bethel (Daredevil), Chad Michael Murray (Agent Carter), Derek Theler (New Warriors).  And John Krasinski. “This is stupid,” he yelled during his costumed test, “I’m not Captain America!” And he wasn’t.  But he was Amazon’s TV’s surprise Jack Ryan  in 2018.
  12. Theo James, Golden Boy, TV, 2013.      Phillippe had been chased for pilots over the years. He finally accepteda planned series following the meteoric rise of street cop to detective to commissioner. Within a fortnight he’d quit, fretting about the rigours of a series, as experienced during a guest arc on Damages. His replacement was a busy Brit from the huge 2010 UK hit, Downton Abbey - created by Julian Fellowes, who also wrote Phillippe’s 2001 UK film and something of a Downton pilot: Gosford Park.
