Dylan O'Brien Once Auditioned For 'Wizards of Waverly Place'

Dylan O'Brien Once Auditioned For 'Wizards of Waverly Place'

Dylan O’Brien is Stiles.

The 26-year-old actor has been Mieczyslaw “Stiles” Stilinski on Teen Wolf since season one, episode one — and we couldn’t imagine anyone else as Stiles, nor could we even think of Dylan not on Teen Wolf.

However, Dylan revealed in his new Vulture feature that he once auditioned for Wizards of Waverly Place, and all of the sudden our worlds are shook about it.

It’s not clear which role he went out for, but let’s just imagine this here — he’s around the same age as David Henrie, which means Justin Russo.

In another time and place we could’ve had Dylan and Selena Gomez as on-screen siblings. Just think of that!

However, it was always Teen Wolf that had his heart and it’s a blessing that he didn’t nab a role on Wizards.

“That show really became my school in a lot of ways,” Dylan shared of Teen Wolf. “I never took a second on set for granted.”

Wizards of Waverly Place will forever be one of our favorite shows on Disney Channel, and the character of Zeke, Justin Russo’s best friend, was partly why.

You probably remember Dan Benson as being the character to ALWAYS make you laugh — and now, he’s going to make your jaw drop because just like The Suite Life of Deck‘s Matthew Timmons he got insanely hot!

We’re not even lying.

JJJ stalked Dan‘s Twitter and Instagram to see what he’s doing now and were met with majorly hunky pics.

Selena Gomez Has Her 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Wand Framed

Selena Gomez Has Her 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Wand Framed

Selena Gomez will always be sentimental about Alex Russo and Wizards of Waverly Place.

The “Bad Liar” singer answered one of actress Jenna Ortega‘s questions during her recent stop at Radio Disney and it will give you all the feels.

Jenna, as a huge fan of WOWP, had to know if Selena ever still pretended to be Alex Russo when no one’s watching? And she kind of does!

“I think I am Alex Russo – I think that’s the thing,” Selena shared. “You know what I do miss though? I do miss having my wand in my boots because that’s what I always used to carry.”

She confessed that she did keep her wand from the set and it’s framed!

“People don’t know that, but I actually have it framed – and it’s really cute,” Selena says. “And I’m very emotional when I talk about it, so I’m not going to get too emotional.”

Check out the video below where Selena answers more questions from Sabrina Carpenter, Jordan Fisher and Laura Marano!

Jake T. Austin Is Definitely Down For A 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Reunion

Jake T. Austin Is Definitely Down For A 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Reunion

Wizards of Waverly Place will always be one of JJJ’s favorite Disney Channel shows ever — so we’re insanely excited to hear that Jake T. Austin would definitely be on board for a reunion.

While promoting his new flick, The Emoji Movie, Jake opened up about a possible reunion, or even a spinoff of the original series.

“Let’s do the reunion. Let’s do it for the fans,” he said to the cameras, sending a message to co-star Selena Gomez.

Last month, Selena shot down the idea of a reunion, but didn’t say no in bringing a spinoff to the channel for a chance to be a producer on it.

We hope this gets talks going again!

Jake is also pictured out at the Dunkirk premiere in New York City on Tuesday night (July 18).

Selena Gomez Nixes A 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Reunion Right Now, But There's A Catch

Selena Gomez Nixes A 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Reunion Right Now, But There's A Catch

Earlier this year, Selena Gomez and David Henrie set the internet on fire while they were dreaming up just where the Russo kids would be on Wizards of Waverly Place.

Their conversation even sparked the show’s creator to chime in on a possible revival — however, it looks like Selena wouldn’t be totally on board with it right now.

“I didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal when we were talking about it,” she shared with Zach Sang.

Selena adds, “I understand, I was so proud of that [show]. It was just so funny how it came about. We were having dinner and we were talking about it hypothetically where we would be, but we’re all older. David‘s married now…we’re at such different places in our lives.”

BUT, she could be persuaded…

When asked about if Selena would be game for being an EP (executive producer) for a possible next gen Wizards show, she was definitely on board with that.

“Oh, totally,” Selena says with a smile. “It would be cool. I love my littles. They’re the best.”

We are loving the longtime friendship between Gregg Sulkin and David Henrie.

The Wizards of Waverly Place co-stars are working on a new AwesomenessTV show together titled Downtown Earl.

They grabbed dinner together this past week to go over some business stuff.

“Great dinner meeting last night with this dude who’s inspired me since walking onto the Wizards set,” Gregg captioned a photo of the two.

David posted the same pic, captioning it, “Always good doing business with friends. @baumeetmercier keepin us on time.”

We can’t wait to see the finished product.

Flashback Friday! 5 Stars You Never Realized Were on 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Until Right Now

Confession time — JJJ is seriously still in love with the brilliance of Wizards of Waverly Place.

We love everything about it — from Alex’s snarkiness, Justin’s smartness, Max’s weirdness, Harper’s crazy outfits to the magic, the monsters and everything. We just love it.

But up until last night, we didn’t realize how many guest stars, who starred alongside Selena Gomez, David Henrie, Jake T. Austin and Jennifer Stone, took a big leap in their careers and are killing it.

Everyone pretty much knows the big guest stars — Shakira, Dwayne Johnson, Jeff Garlin, Gregg Sulkin, Bridgit Mendler — but we totally forgot about these five guest stars that are pretty big in Hollywood right now.
