Jessica Capshaw, Kevin McKidd Originally Auditioned for Different ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Roles

10 June 2016 2:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dr. Owen Hunt and Dr. Arizona Robbins are staples in the world of “Grey’s Anatomy,” but the actors behind the TV characters were almost cast in different roles.

Kevin McKidd and Jessica Capshaw have played Owen and Arizona, respectively, since the fifth season of Shondaland’s hit medical drama, which is heading into its 13th season, but they originally auditioned for different parts.

Capshaw first auditioned for the part of Nurse Rose, a love interest to Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek Shepherd in seasons four and five, who was ultimately portrayed by actress Lauren Stamile.

Jessica Capshaw came in for Nurse Rose,” Shondaland producer Betsy Beers revealed on Friday during her panel at the Atx Television Festival in Austin, Texas. “Jessica came in for Nurse Rose and did a chemistry read with Patrick … we fell in love with Jessica Capshaw.”

Reminding the room of the character, Beers said, “Nurse Rose was a nurse who Derek (Patrick Dempsey) had a brief relationship with and it didn’t really end up going anywhere.” With a laugh, the producer added, “Nurse Rose ended up going to probably another hospital. That’s my guess. She’s probably on like ‘Chicago Med!'”

As for McKidd, he also auditioned for “Grey’s” well before actually joining the show, and Shonda Rhimes brought him back later when she developed the Owen character.

“One of the things that happens a lot in Shondaland is that we meet actors and love them, but they’re just not perfect for that part,” Beers said. “We met Kevin McKidd generally for a couple of different parts for him, until she created the role of Owen.”

Sharing one of her all-time favorite auditions, Beers brought up Katie Lowes, who now plays Quinn on “Scandal.” Beers revealed that she and Rhimes first met Lowes when she auditioned for Shondaland’s short-lived drama “Off the Map,” which aired in 2011.

Katie Lowes, we originally met because she came in for a show called ‘Off the Map.’ She came really, really close. We loved her, but she just didn’t end up being right for the role,” Beers said. “For ‘Scandal,’ Katie Lowes came in to read for the role of Quinn. … We knew it immediately. The network and the studio all agreed we didn’t have to audition anyone else.”

Though the Shondaland team knew that Lowes got the part from the moment she walked in the room, Beers and Rhimes put Lowes through the ringer just a bit.

“We brought her in and she thought she was doing another audition,” Beers recalled. “It’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen because you could see all the expressions of death and dying, but backwards, to oh-my-god to oh-my-god to tears and tears to running up to each of us and hugging us and making the slightly unfortunate statement that this was the best thing that ever happened to her — and she just got engaged.”

“I am just a dumb bunny, but, we are good at multiplying!”

When I reviewed Zootopia here at We Are Movie Geeks, I wrote”, the beautifully designed, brightly-hued Zootopia is breezier and bouncier than most. The animation work is dazzling, lovingly detailed without being overdone. I felt like I could reach out and pet these furry critters, especially in eye-popping 3D.” (read all of my review Here)

Now you can own Zootopia on Blu-ray thanks to Walt Disney Animation Studios!

Zootopia has broken records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office to date. The best reviewed movie of 2016, critics and audiences around the world have fallen in love with the wonderfully innovative animal metropolis of Zootopia and the comedic chemistry of rookie rabbit officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman).  It’s been called one of the best buddy cop comedies in years! »

9 March 2016 8:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

There’ll be no sleep for the Los Angeles–based Iama Theatre Company and friends this weekend, as they have just 23 hours to write and rehearse seven original short plays. Back for its second year, the Iama (pronounced “I am a”) 23 Hour Play Fest will be held at the Atwater Village Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 13. The catch? Each of the seven plays will have just been conceived and written the day before. It’s a daunting challenge for everyone involved, according to the company’s co–artistic director Katie Lowes (best known as Quinn Perkins on ABC’s “Scandal”). “Everyone, even the biggest names, were thrilled and terrified by the challenge,” she told Backstage. Those names include Lena Dunham (“Girls”) and Dan Bucatinsky (“Scandal”) acting as writers, and Ian Harding (“Pretty Little Liars”), Jack Falahee (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Joe Morton (“Scandal”), and Jamie-Lynn Sigler »

'Frozen' Easter Egg Discovered in New 'Zootopia' Photo

20 February 2016 2:42 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's doubtful that the new Disney animated comedy Zootopia will bring the same fevered devotion and love as fans have for the studio's 2013 blockbuster Frozen. But that doesn't mean the animators can't have a little fun. They've decided to hide a cool Frozen Easter egg away in this animal-lovers paradise. And we have a new image that shows off this cool treat in all it's glory.

Disney has a long and storied history when it comes to scattering Easter eggs throughout any of their animated movies. And it appears that Zootopia is ready to give Frozen a big shout out. And no, we're not talking about the fact that Kristen Bell, who voices Anna in Frozen, also returns to voice a three-toed sloth in this latest animated adventure.

A new image shows off the icy district of Tundratown, one of the many burgs in the animal kingdom of Zootopia. If you look closely, »

What kind of animal would forget Valentine's Day? Don't miss out on spoiling your special some-bunny on this Lover's Holiday! Disney's new animated comedy Zootopia has released a special Valentine's Day TV spot, which shows the various animals in this quaint burg enjoying the long weekend.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other.

But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. »
