There may have been more plot and secrecy around the selection process for the lead role in Coyote Ugly, then actually in the movie. If it wasn't for the film showing off hot chicks dancing on bar tables, there wouldn't have been much point is seeing the flick. As fate would have it, Piper Perabo was only one of the lead role contenders. Another possible selection was Jessica Simpson, who was actually looking to break into acting at the time. The casting crew ultimately chose Piper and dubbed her singing with country singer, Leann Rimes.
Do you think the casting crew made the right choice? Who do you think is hotter, Piper or Jessica?
