Matt Czuchry Initially Auditioned For A Different Role On Gilmore Girls


In June 2015, the “Gilmore Girls” cast and writers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino all came together again for a reunion panel, which Entertainment Weekly covered. While there has been a “Gilmore Girls” secret Matt Czuchry refuses to spill, he did reveal something interesting during the panel: “I actually auditioned twice for two different roles over the course of the year, and Logan.”

While the actor did not specify which roles he auditioned for before landing Logan, he has previously talked about his audition process. In 2006, while the show was still on the air, Czuchry spoke with My Fanbase and answered which other roles he had auditioned for. It turns out the parts were of Rory’s other potential love interests: Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), who Rory dates in Season 3, and two characters who are interested in Rory, Tristan (Chad Michael Murray) and Marty (Wayne Wilcox).

Czuchry’s statement at the panel seems to contradict what he told Fanbase as he said the process happened over the course of a year. However, if he auditioned for Tristan and Jess, both of whom come into the show in earlier seasons, the total time he spent auditioning must have spanned over a year. 

But, whatever the case may be, fans sure are happy that he ended up playing Logan.
