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, 2002.      Philippe and Brad Pitt were being talked of for Diane Lane’s lover until producers retained a French touch for their re-make of Claude Chabrol’s La femme infidle, 1969.
  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.    Among the many seen about playing Steve Rogers, the super-serumed alter-ego of America's symbol of liberty (from WWII to Obama), part of Marvel’s superhero team. Also missing the nine-picture deal for Cap Am sequels, Avengers movies and cross-overs were… Jensen Ackles, Dane Cook, Chace Crawford, Kellan Lutz, Johnny Pacar, Scott Porter, Alexander Skarsgård, Will Smith, Sebastian Stan, Channing Tatum, Mike Vogel, Sam Worthington. And the siblings Kevin and Nick of the Jonas Brothers band.
  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.
