“Sometimes with casting, the right person just walks in and you just feel it,” adds Jami.
That’s how she felt when Jared auditioned for the part of Rory’s first boyfriend, Dean Forester.
The actress has admitted they even talked marriage.
Milo played Rory’s second boyfriend Jess Mariano, the "bad boy" of Stars Hollow.
She may very well end up with someone else entirely, given that the revival will comprise of four movie-length episodes, providing plenty of time for Rory to meet and fall in love with a new person.
Until the series returns (Netflix has yet to announce a release date), all we can do is wonder about Rory's romantic future—except for members of Team Dean.
Rory was going to leave her cocooned environment and go to a new school with a bunch of kids who were very different. Something they loved is gone, which means things you love will not be around forever. The Gilmore house [where Richard and Emily lived] isn’t done yet. Well, it’s not like it’s “The Lost Weekend” and they’re John Lennon and they don’t remember. Luckily, the elements that we wanted to play were not taken or destroyed by whatever they did in Season 7.
Unfortunately, his personal opinion held no sway in the outcome of the series, because Sutcliffe continued, "I know they’re not going to end up together, but Rory and Dean seem like a good couple." Please cue the breaking of every Team Dean member's heart.
Maybe he returns to his long-suffering wife Lindsay (Arielle Kebbel), although given that he cheated on her with Rory, Lindsay has hopefully moved on by now.
For those who prefer Rory’s second boyfriend, Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), or her third boyfriend, Logan (Matt Czuchry), the news from Sutcliffe narrows the playing field a little, but raises a host of questions about Rory’s love life.
The show's casting director just dropped a massive bombshell about Rory / Alexis Bledel and her on-screen love interests.
We knew Alexis dated Milo Ventimiglia for three year and a half years until 2006 - the chemistry between the two was so palpable it had to be real. The casting director Mara Casey let it slip in a recent interview with Life & Style.
