James Dean and Paul Newman, screen test for East of Eden.
In February 1954, Newman appeared in a screen test with James Dean, directed by Gjon Mili, for East of Eden (1955). Newman was testing for the role of Aron Trask, Dean for the role of Aron’s fraternal twin brother Cal. Dean won his part, but Newman lost out to Richard Davalos.
Arghhhhhhhhh. Such a awesome moment. These two were such studs :D
