"Lipstick Jungle's" Original Hunk Will Toale
Robert Buckley, Kim Raver's sexy lover on NBC's "Lipstick Jungle," has generated quite a bit of buzz for the Candace Bushnell series. In the original pilot however, Raver's Nico Reilly got hot and heavy with male model Will Toale, but as you may see in the video clips after the jump, the result was quite underwhelming.
Toale who has been pursuing an acting career since 2003 has scored a guest appearance in theatrical "Uptown Girls," TV's "Law & Order: SVU" and on Broadway in "A Street Car Named Desire."
In addition to being let go from "Lipstick Jungle," the 30-year old Toale was also replaced by Justin Hartley as the titular character in CW's failed pilot "Aquaman" in 2006.
Toale wasn't the only one to leave "Lipstick Jungle" - the studio also replaced Brooke Shields' husband and boss (Julian Sands who took over the latter role originally played Kim Raver's husband) and fired the showrunners delaying production till November 2007.
Here are a couple of Toale's scenes from the original pilot.
