These Actors Weren’t The First Pick In Their Iconic Role– See Who Was!
Katie Holmes And Selma Blair – Dawson’s Creek
Josephine Lynn “Joey” Potter is the de facto lead role on the WB drama series Dawson’s Creek. The character was featured in all episodes of the series, which was on the air from 1998 to 2003. When casting for the show, Dawson’s Creek creator Kevin Williamson had someone specifically in mind for the character Joey Potter.
This was Selma Blair, the star of Cruel Intentions. Yet, after seeing Katie Holmes’ audition tape Williams told EW, “I really loved Selma until, of course, I got the infamous videotape from the basement of the Holmes family in Toledo, Ohio.”
