Both actors were originally set for the musical, but ended up being replaced by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.
La La Land is currently dominating awards season with stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling each picking up a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination for their lead roles. But while it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing Mia and Sebastian, originally it was meant to be Emma Watson and Miles Teller singing and dancing their way around Hollywood.
Now a report by Page Six has claimed that both Watson and Teller lost out on the roles for being ‘too demanding’ and the film’s award season success has left both stars at war with their agents.

After storming awards season with Whiplash two years ago, writer-director Damien Chazelle returns with something even better: an original movie musical that is shamelessly enjoyable. It somehow manages to be a feel-good triumph as well as a darkly honest exploration of the quest for fame and romance in Los Angeles. And with fantastic songs, colourful choreography and already iconic performances from Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, this is pure cinematic joy.
It opens in a traffic jam on a warm winter's day, where aspiring actress Mia (Stone) first encounters struggling jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). They meet a couple more times before they begin to share the troubles they are facing trying to make their dreams come true. As romance blossoms, Mia urges Sebastian to go for his passion project to create a proper jazz bar, while Sebastian supports Mia's attempt to write a one-woman show to display her talents. But there are huge pressures to endure and obstacles to overcome as this city pushes them to compromise.
Chazelle establishes the film's musical tone from the opening moment, a breathtaking single-take full-on musical number on a freeway flyover. And the movie only gets better from there, deepening the two central characters as every scene is packed with hilarious comedy, honest romance and wrenching drama. Gosling and especially Stone are perfect in these roles, drawing on their already established chemistry as they add singing and dancing to their repertoires.
