Guess who turned down the role of Dr. McDreamy on Grey’s Anatomy???
Rob Lowe! Can you envision him as Dr. Lowe? Dr. Derek Shepherd? Dr. McDreamy?
Close your eyes, and see if you can imagine anyone OTHER than Patrick Dempsey…
I sure can’t.
I CAN, however, imagine many others who could have played Dr. McSteamy. I mean as HOTT as Eric Dane was playing Mark Sloan, if I close my eyes, I can see Ian Somerhalder, Charlie Hunnam, Matt Bomer, or either Hemsworth (Chris or Liam).
Anyway, Rob Lowe jokes that he lost $70 million dollars when he turned down the role of McDreamy in the show that just made history as the longest running medical drama on TV!
