2. Billy Crystal auditioned for the role of Jack

Billy Crystal was one of the other actors who auditioned for the role of Jack, along with Barry Van Dyke and Michael Lembeck who later became a director for shows like Friends. Billy soon booked a role on the ABC comedy Soap so he did okay for himself. We can’t imagine anyone besides John Ritter in that iconic role.
