John Corbett was destined to play main man Ian Miller.
The Intercourse and the Metropolis actor initially turned down the position due to unavailability, however Nia Vardolas revealed he finally accepted it after a random encounter in a bar.
“I assumed he was excellent. However he wasn’t out there,” she advised ABC in 2018.
“So we had been about to begin filming My Massive Fats Greek Wedding ceremony, and I used to be within the bar of the lodge with Gary Goetzman, and we did not have Ian Miller.
“In walks John Corbett, proper into the bar. Proper into the bar … like, our first selection, and he is in the identical bar that we’re in on the similar lodge in Toronto.”
Vardalos stated she waited as Corbett spoke to the bartender, who requested what movie he was engaged on subsequent and overheard him say, “I do not know, however I simply learn this script in my room, My Massive Fats Greek Wedding ceremony, and I am gonna be in it.”
