SELMA BLAIR felt sure she’d beaten KATIE HOLMES to the role of JOEY POTTER in
teen TV show DAWSON’S CREEK – because the newcomer was too tall.
Blair and Holmes were battling it out with another young actress for the part
– and the Hellboy star was confident she’d land it.
She says, “Holmes got it fair and square… (but) I remember seeing her walk
into the (audition) room and thinking, ‘She is just the tallest girl. There’s
no way they’ll give it to her. She won’t even fit on camera.’ Then I ate my
words. She was adorable.”
