I stumbled across a video tonight that has clips from the original pilot (and other episodes maybe?) from the original cast of Moonlight. I didn’t know that the cast we see now was not in fact the original cast. Apparently Alex O’Loughlin was originally cast as Mick St. John but all the characters around him were recast including his love interest Beth and his best vampire friend Josef. The original Beth was frankly kind of blah in comparison and had no chemistry with Mick/Alex. The original Josef was MUCH older. In fact he looks a lot like the the guy that played Archon Raine in the vampire series Kindred the Embraced…another vampire series I LOVED big time. Alas that show was cancelled after the actor that played the lead died in a tragic motorcycle accident.
Anyway here is the video:
