Today in What Might Have Been: Former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy tells the New York Times that he was in talks for Noah Baumbach's now-defunct adaptation of The Corrections. "I was potentially going to play Gary, which I was excited about. But I don't think I was going to get it. Although since it didn't happen, Noah was just like, 'Just say you got it. We didn't have another Gary.'" That counts.
