I’ve posted this on the Ben Mckenzie board on FanForum but, I thought I might post it here too.
The original Pilot Script for The OC. You can read it HERE.
This is such a great read. I really recommend to all of the OC fans and especially Ryan Atwood fans here to read it.
In the original script:
- The Cohens are the Needlemans.
- Ryan has a tattoo.
- Ryan and Seth first time meeting is totally different and there’s a lot of Ryan/Seth scenes that they totally changed.
- Seth’s character is unrecognizable, in a bad way (well, at least in my opinion) it’s clear from reading this that they went in a total different direction with Seth (and I’m glad they did - I don’t like “Original” Seth).
- Ryan has an uncle
- Ryan ride a skateboard
- The “Welcome to the dark side” line was Sandy’s in the original script.
And a lot more good stuff. Read it!!
Also; This is Ryan’s Chino room, now I finally get the skateboard on the wall above the bed:
