26 Hollywood Casting Close Calls
Jennifer Aniston Coulda Been On "SNL"
Surprise! Before she became Rachel Green, Jennifer Aniston was apparently courted to be a cast member on "Saturday Night Live." On Oprah, Adam Sandler—Jennifer's co-star in "Just Go With It"—recalls hoping that he would be spending every Saturday night with Jennifer. "We wanted Aniston to be on the show with us," he said. "I remember being on the ninth floor where Lorne Michaels' office was, and seeing Jen come in. I was like, 'Oh my God, there's Aniston. Is she about to be on our show?'" But no, apparently she was worried about "SNL" being a "boys' club" and so opted to go with "Friends." Adam was shocked; "She said no? She's gonna do that 'Friends'? What the hell is 'Friends?'" And thus, a million haircuts were launched. Oh, and did you know that Jennifer was also considered for Roxie Hart in "Chicago"? And to play Rose in "Titanic?" So strange.
