Matt Chukry originally auditioned for another role in Gilmore Girls.

In June 2015, the Gilmore Girls cast and writers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino got back together for a reunion panel covered by Entertainment Weekly. Even though there is a Gilmore Girls secret that Matt Zukri refuses to reveal, he did reveal something interesting during the panel: “I actually auditioned twice for two different roles within a year, and for Logan.”

While the actor didn’t elaborate on what roles he auditioned for before landing Logan, he previously opened up about his audition process. In 2006, while the show was still on the air, Choukri spoke to My fan base and answered what other roles he auditioned for. It turns out that these were the roles of Rory’s other potential love interests: Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), whom Rory dates in Season 3, and two characters who are interested in Rory, Tristan (Chad Michael Murray) and Marty (Wayne Wilcox).

Choukri’s statement on the panel seems to contradict what he told Fanbase as he said the process took place over the course of a year. However, if he auditioned for Tristan and Jess, who had both appeared on the show in earlier seasons, the total time he spent auditioning must have been over a year.

But be that as it may, the fans are happy that he ended up playing Logan.
