It's always so interesting to hear about this sort of thing!
Katharine McPhee has gone from American Idol to movies like The House Bunny and Shark Night to the lead in Smash, but according to the actress/singer, she was this close to being cast in the breakout comedy The Hangover!
"It was between me and the girl who got it for The Hangover [as] the bride. I didn't get it, but I went all the way. I would have loved to play that part. It was so much better than I would have ever thought it could be. It was unbelievably hysterical, and I remember in the theater I was like, 'I wish I had gotten that part!' "
Of course it would have been fun to be involved in that project in any capacity, but we doubt she's too torn up about it!
The brides in those movies always have the least to do! Ha!
We think that despite the rejection, you've landed pretty well on your feet, gurl!
Maybe there will be a part for you in the third one!
