That Time Rory Gilmore Had A Cameo In Wes Anderson's "Rushmore"

Can you imagine a Wes Anderson Universe/Gilmore Girls crossover though?

Posted on

Jason Schwartzman's career was launched with his role in Wes Anderson's 1998 film Rushmore, but he's not the only star who came out of that film.

Look, if you will, at this scene from Rushmore. Here we have Jason's character Max in class, but does anyone else look familiar?

Look closely...

Why, it's Alexis Bledel, a.k.a Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls!

This uncredited cameo turned up two years before Gilmore Girls aired on The WB.

Look how good she looks. Look at her extremely comparable sweater game.

She's like "Gilmore, OUT."

Shower thought: what if Gilmore Girls takes place in the same universe as Rushmore?

What if those fast-talking, vaguely neurotic Gilmore ladies exist in tandem with the equally fast-talking and neurotic protagonists of all of Anderson's films?

It's pretty fun to think about.
