Justin Whalin

  1. Skeet Ulrich, Scream, 1996.   The nearest Whalin got to being handsome-hero Billy Loomis was working with Neve Campbell auditioning as Sidney Prescott. She won. He didn’t. Also in the mix: Ben Affleck, David Arquette, Michael Landes, Matthew Lillard, Joaquin Phoenix (refused), Kevin Patrick Walls..  Whalin  and Landes had both played Jimmy Olsen in Lois & Clarkwhich – in case we were thick –  was subtitled The New Adventures of Superman. Landes  was dropped after the first, 1983-1984, season because  he looked too much like Dean Cain’s Supie. Ironically, Ulrich won Loomis because  heresembled Johnny Depp…  who began in the same director Wes Craven’s other quirky horror franchise, A  Nightmare on Elm Street, 1984. Whalin has not been heard of since his 33rd screen rôle in 2009.
