You'll Never Guess Who Almost Played Rachel Green On Friends

History could have changed forever

Jane Krakowski almost switched lives with Jennifer Aniston. Before starring in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, for which she was nominated for an Emmy this year, she starred in shows like 30 Rock and Ally McBeal. But there was one TV role she missed out on that she wishes she could have clinched.

In an interview with Giuliana Rancic on the Emmys red carpet, Krakowski revealed that she was up for Aniston's part on Friends:

'Well, I, like almost every actor in the world, auditioned for Friends,' she said. 'I wish I had gotten that one. I actually auditioned for Rachel, and I didn't go very far.' She said she's not even sure that she got a callback. 'My business manager is very sad that I didn't,' she joked.

Krakowski could have definitely brought a more manic energy to the part of Rachel Green, and the part likely would have been written much differently as a result. And could you imagine millions of women dyeing their hair blonde to get 'the Rachel' haircut?
