Welcome to Weird-tanic! Population: This screen test.
Titanic came out on Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray today, and on it is a then 19-year-old Kate Winslet screen testing for the role which she eventually got opposite Jeremy Sisto (aka Elton from Clueless, Billy from Six Feet Under and George from Suburgatory) as the role Leonardo DiCatchAHo eventually got. Jeremy wasn’t ever up for the role and was just helping James Cameron out, but it’s still weird to watch. It’s like if your 10-year-old self went into the kitchen one morning and sat down at the table across from a stranger bitch who isn’t your father but tells you to call him your father. (“Oh, that used to happen to me all the time! It was no big deal.” – Kate Hudson’s son)
But really, James Cameron had the right idea by using Jeremy Sister as Jack and he should’ve given him the role and then cast Alicia Silverstone as Cher as Rose. It would’ve looked like this:
Jack: I want to paint you wearing this, only this.
Rose: As if! Like I’d really wear something from Judy’s.
Rose’s Mom: Come into the boat, Rose. Rose, get into the boat!
Rose: I can’t! You don’t understand, this is an Alaia.
Rose: Stay back! Don’t come any closer! I’m going to jump!
Tai: As if. You’re a virgin who can’t dive.
AND Celine Dion could’ve done a cover of Rollin’ with the Homies! If only.
