Which WB Teen Star Was Supposed to Play Owen Hunt on Grey’s Anatomy?
On Grey’s Anatomy, stars come and go frequently, ranging from quick guest-starring spots to departing series regulars. While we miss everyone who has come through the doors of Seattle Grace/Grey Sloan Memorial through its 11 seasons, the person we are saddest about never stepped foot in the hospital.
Back in 2007, a WB heartthrob was supposed to play Owen Hunt, swooping in as Cristina Yang’s love interest a bit earlier than we actually met him in Season 5. However, due to the writers’ strike and some scheduling issues with his other show, it didn’t pan out, and the producers ended up casting Kevin McKidd.
We can’t imagine anyone but Kevin as Owen, but seeing this guy falling in love with Sandra Oh on-screen would have been lovely, too.
