Alexis Bledel & Jared Padalecki as Rory and Dean in “Gilmore Girls” (2000-2007) Padalecki was the third Dean. When the casting directors watched Jared read for Dean, they had already gone through two previous actors in the role. One was Nathan Wetherington. They had put the search on hold while focusing on other characters, but were told about an amazing actor who would be ~perfect~ for the part. So they decided to see him, and it’s good that they did because they loved him immediately. (teen vogue)
