Re: Why Did Gene drop Christopher Pike?

I hadn't heard of the auditions. I read the Wiki article on the film a few weeks back, so must have missed it.

But Edd Byrnes?!! I admit there might have been a resemblance, but audiences of the day would only have seen Kookie from 77 Sunset Strip. It's like the George Reeves Syndrome.
