Speaking with Charlie Rose in 2000, Wolfgang Petersen claimed that his original choice for the role of Captain Billy Tyne was none other than Nicolas Cage. “The first idea was Nick Cage for Billy Tine, for the George Clooney character,” he said. Cage was unable to play the part because he was busy with Gone in 60 Seconds.

Petersen then met with Mel Gibson, who was apparently not cast because he wanted too much money. Coincidentally, The Perfect Storm opens the same weekend as The Patriot, which starred Gibson. On its opening weekend, it came in second while The Perfect Storm came in first. Checkout Mojo.

After all, as Rose Petersen said, he went with Clooney after sneaking in to see an unfinished version of his film Three Kings, which he also co-starred with Mark Wahlberg. Then, when Petersen met with Clooney, he told the director that what he really wanted was not Billy Tine, but Bobby Shatford, which Wahlberg ended up getting. Apparently, Clooney believed that the captain of the fishing boat must be much older than him. “I think … he was a little hesitant about whether he could replace this big role,” Petersen said.
