All the Major Auditions That Sadly Didn’t Go as Colton Haynes Hoped

By  | 

Colton Haynes is currently on top of the world. Not only is he engaged to the love of his life, but he’s possibly in the process of becoming a father, too. We’re not sure what’s happening with the future of Scream Queens, but the former Teen Wolf actor also has roles in Triumph and Rough Night locked, loaded and ready to go. We don’t think anyone doubts that 2017 is going to be the 28-year-old’s year.

But riding the waves of success wasn’t always in the cards for CH. Like many other young Hollywood stars, the actor had to go through a lot to get to the point he’s at right now. Keep reading to see all the huge roles he auditioned for, but sadly did not get in the end.

1. Edward Cullen, Twilight — TONS of young actors including Jamie Campbell Bower, Dave Franco and Shiloh Fernandez auditioned to play the leading vampire in this YA book-to-movie adaptation, but no one was quite sure if Colton’s rumored involvement was actually true. The former Teen Wolf star confirmed to MTV that he was, in fact, considered to play Edward in the film series but had no hard feelings toward Robert Pattinson for getting the role — he was actually glad he didn’t book the gig!

2. Finn Hudson, Glee — Not many people know that Colton is actually a really great singer, but those who do shouldn’t be too surprised that he auditioned for this iconic musical role. The 28-year-old actor told People magazine years back, “I auditioned for Glee and I auditioned for the role of Finn. Now seeing Cory Monteith playing Finn, I think he does a great job. I think everyone auditioned for Glee, so that’s gonna be a funny thing. It was nerve-racking, but you know, I didn’t get it. Sad. I didn’t book it.”



3. Young Han Solo, Untitled Star Wars Film — Before Alden Ehrenreich was cast as Young Han Solo in the upcoming anthology film, TONS of actors, including Colton Haynes, were considered for the role. It obviously didn’t work out, but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t have supported it if it DID happen.

4. Royce Du Lac, Spectacular! — According to IMDB the newly engaged actor auditioned to play Victoria Justice‘s character’s boyfriend in this Nickelodeon TV movie, but ended up losing the role to Simon Curtis.
