The Woman That Missed Out On 'Seinfeld'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Lee Garlington has been steadily working in Hollywood since the '80s. "I haven't had to say, 'Would you like fries or Caesar salad with that?' since 1984," she said. But, the actress added, she hasn't peaked yet. "I plan to peak in my 70s," Garlington told The Huffington Post in a phone interview. "I have another decade to go before I'm going to really hit my stride. I'm going to be Doris Roberts, knocking 'em dead on my big hit show." A serial guest star and regular film supporting player, Garlington is perhaps best known for having one the biggest show business "tragedies": She was the original female star in the "Seinfeld" pilot.

Back in 2000, the director was involved in a Dean Martin biopic that would have starred Tom Hanks as Martin and John Travolta as Sinatra. When the Sinatra film was announced in 2009, it was thought that frequent Scorsese collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio would play the famed singer -- he was rumored to be attached -- but the pair instead reunited for "The Wolf of Wall Street," a star-studded adaptation of Jordan Belfort's memoir. Whether DiCaprio would still play the lead role is unclear, as is when the Sinatra film would even occur: Scorsese is still deciding bet ...
