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). Whalin and Landes had both played Jimmy Olsen in Lois & Clark which – in case you 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 he resembled 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.
