Maggie Grace

  1. Ellen Page,  X-Men: The Last Stand, 2005.    No return  gig from Bryan Singer’s  X2: X-Men United, 2002, for Katie Stuart. Singer had gone on to ruin Superman Returns, thinking he’d be welcomed back by Fox. He wasn’t.  New helmer Brett Ratner obviously didn’t approve of Stuart.  He first cast Grace as Shadowcat/Kitty Pryde,  then felt she was too old – having fallen for Page in Hard Candy, 2004.   She kept refusing the role, but gave in and survived to the next sequel: X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2013
  2. Malin Akerman, Catch .44, 2010.    The Twilight star was seenfor Tes,headof the three Vegas dead-end girls invited into criminallife by Bruce Willis.
  3. Emma Stone, Gangster Squad, 2011.    Nicknamed Miss America, Maggie was among the many damsels aiming to be Grace Faraday in the 40s/50s LAPD v Mafia drama…  Camilla Belle, Lily Collins, Ashley Greene, Aly Michalka, Teresa Palmer, Emily Rossum and Amanda Seyfried.
  4. Marcia Gay Harden, Code Black, TV, 2015.      ER  by any other name would sell as sweetly…  After the first table read, the  producers let dropped Grace, 31, and  called up the Oscar-winning Harden, 55, and, therefore, full of the necessary  gravitas  for the ER’s residency director –  ie, ER’s Laura Innes aka Dr Kerry Weaver, by any other name…
