[ # ] Imagine John Laroquette as The Outsiders’ Ponyboy
January 25th, 2018 under Brat Pack


Back in 1983, 8 virtual unknowns starred in a little movie called The Outsiders and all of their acting careers and lives changed forever. Today if you say Ponyboy to someone, they will immediately picture C Thomas Howell in their heads. But there was someone else who screened for the role.

Yesterday on The Librarians, John Laroquette wore a jean vest and his co-star Rebecca Romijn revealed that this was not the first time he wore it on camera. He wore it 35 years ago to audition for the cult classic, and as we know he did not get the role.

Which makes you wonder what would have happened to the two actors had the role gone to the Laroquette. Does that mean Dan Fielding would have played the Soul Man and the Soul Man would have gone to play Dan Fielding in Night Court. Imagine how different their careers would have been? I am glad it turned out the way it did because their roles are perfect just the way they are.
