'Mad Men' Star January Jones Reveals Her Worst Audition Ever; Plus Other Actors Who Almost Got The Part (PHOTOS)


Before the success of Mad Men, January Jones was just hoping to land a decent gig. She recently admitted that she actually auditioned for the 2000 film Coyote Ugly. Hoping to land the role of a scantily-clad, bar dancing gal, the actress, 34, recalls the audition as one of the lowest points in her career.

"That just reminded me of one of the worst moments in my entire life. It was an audition for Coyote Ugly, my second audition ever. I'd done the reading for the acting part and then Jerry Bruckheimer wanted me to come in and dance … on top of the table ... They said, 'You're going to dance to Prince's 'Kiss.' You're going to pole dance, but there is no pole.'" Jones told the The Hollywood Reporter.

So how did she react to the racy audition request?

Jones added: "I just turned beet red. It was awful, and he said something like, 'Honey, you did a great reading, but you've got no rhythm.' I called my agent and said, 'I don't want to do this anymore.'"

Jones isn't the only famous star who has lost a big role. Click through the gallery above to see more "Famous Roles: Who Almost Got the Part."

    I would never say I had a favourite Mandy but I cetiranly like one more than the other on certain days. One might be just having an off day and the other is a little easier to deal with or just more affectionate, or visa versa. I thought of that very thing when we went through the floods. I imagined myself trying to save my 2 kids. I couldn't save one and not the other. I'd do everything in my power to save their lives, while giving mine up. It's a heart wrenching thing to think about.Those photos of your kids are just adorable.Anne xx

    I'm glad she didn't get the role, Cassie is too good for that sad and stupid stuff that was HSM. Also Cassie is in no way plain.

    Psychologically speaking the truth is that its hard for one to pictures an awesome movie already made with another actor. Because its already programmed in your head and so it feels weird when you try to picture another actor in a role you assimilated with the original actor. But truth be told, if an actor is great he can do any role justice. It's not really a competition, its more of who can bring the character to life for our viewing pleasure. Whoever fits the part. There is no right or wrong.
