According to his Official Site, actor Wil Wheaton didn’t get the role he went for in Alex Proyas’s "I Robot". Says Wheaton, "I just found out that the director for I, Robot "didn’t respond to any" of the tapes he saw, including mine."

Wheaton says, "These are both very valid, and totally understandable reasons . . . but it doesn’t make me feel any less sad. It’s frustrating to hear "the director didn’t respond to you," because it’s so nebulous. It’s like being told, "You’re not getting this job. Why? Because. Next!" It also has a sort of negative feeling to it, doesn’t it? It doesn’t help that I have heard "the director didn’t respond" without any real elaboration countless times in my career .I was very happy with my audition. I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. I know that I could have done a great job with this character, and I would have been really good in this movie. Whle I didn’t sit in my living room for days, not eating and agonizing over getting this part, I was genuinely excited about the opportunities it presented. Working with Will Smith and Alex Poyas, and getting to play a robot would have been awesome."

In an earlier post, Wheaton said he and 100 other actors were put on tape last week – and three or so of those actors would be called in to meet the director.
