Earlier this year, Wayne Wilcox, the actor who plays Marty (aka ‘The Naked Guy’) on Gilmore Girls gave an interview about how, just perhaps, we should all be #TeamMarty. He thought, like many out there, that Marty was quirky and smart and considerate: an obviously good fit for Rory. And, despite the fact that he never really got his chance, many loved his character on the show. Including Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino.
Amy was recently quoted as saying “we absolutely tried” to get Wayne Wilcox back:
[But] organically it just didn’t fit in. We love Wayne.”
Dan Palladino adds that if each of the 90-minute chapters had been extended to 2-hours each, it’s likely we would have seen a return of Marty.
Sad news, though I am still super impressed at how many characters the Palladinos did manage to bring back!
