We're still swooning over Noah Centineo as Peter K in To All The Boys I've Loved Before. The young actor and the rest of the talented cast brought Jenny Han's New York Times best selling book to life in the most heartwarming and entertaining way possible.

Now that we've seen the film, we can't imagine our favourite characters played by anyone else, but what if Noah Centineo never played Peter K? What if he actually played Josh Sanderson?

In an interview with Indiewire, the film's director Susan Johnson revealed that audiences very nearly saw Noah play boy-next-door Josh Sanderson.

“When we did chemistry reads, I knew I loved Israel and I knew I loved Noah, but I wasn’t sure who would play which role,” Johnson told the publication. “I initially was thinking of Noah for Josh, because I thought, ‘Oh, he seems like boy next door,’ but then once I saw Lana and Noah’s chemistry I knew we had to go that direction. Israel was great with Janel. I thought that fit really well.”

That would have changed... everything.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo's specific brand of chemistry made the film such a delight to watch that we can't envision him in any other role.

If Noah nearly played Josh, does that mean Israel Broussard could have been Peter K? We're trying to picture it, though we're pretty happy with the eventual casting of the film.

If you want to blow your mind further, consider the fact that Noah Centineo auditioned to play Noah Flynn in The Kissing Booth. Now THAT would have been a wild ride.

What do you guys think? Can you picture To All The Boy's I've Loved Before's two male leads in reverse roles?
