He's gone all the way back to Jeff for the understudy, so its quite a few people ALW kept in longer who have not been given the role.Sadly the show doesn't seem to even have a wiki page to look the history up, but its at least Rory, Roger and David who got nearer to winning (or didn't really).
Interesting that Tim was spotted for something else too.
I'm not sure that he would have gone to Roger with the role though, as I don't think he ever saw him as Jesus, but I'm still surprised that there are only 2 of the rejectee jesus' in the show as a whole!
