[ # ] Imagine Oliver Hudson as Jack Pearson on This Is Us?
May 15th, 2018 under Oliver Hudson, This Is Us

Oliver Hudson was on The Ladygang podcast and he told them about a huge role he was up for a few years ago. Milo Ventimiglia and him both auditioned to play Jack Pearson on This Is Us and we know which one got it. There is an interesting story why he is not playing the role that makes us cry every week.

After a successful audition, Hudson was asked to come back and do a chemistry reading with Mandy Moore; but he had a 10-day fishing period at the same time. He opted to the do the latter and we all know what happened next. Does he regret his decision? “And then, of course, it premiered massive and I’m like, ‘Oh s#*t, ok.’”

As they tell us, ladies, whenever we break up with a guy, there are plenty of fish in the sea. He too should have followed those words of wisdom and postponed his trip. Fish will always be there, but a good role will not be.

At least he has Splitting Up Together.

When it comes to how he would have been as the patriarch on the show, as much as I adore him, I cannot picture anyone but Ventimiglia as Jack. Can you?
