Scott Patterson’s talking out about Gilmore Girls. The 62-year-old actor, best known for playing the show’s diner owner Luke Danes, recently stated who among the Gilmore Girls actors is “nothing like” the character they play. Is it Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore)? No. Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore)? Try again. It’s Michael Winters, or as fans of the iconic 2000s series know him, Taylor Doose.

‘Gilmore Girls’: Scott Patterson Admits He and Lauren Graham Were ‘Nervous’ for First Luke-Lorelai Kiss
Gilmore Girls wouldn’t be the TV program it is without the strange yet wonderful individuals who reside in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, with Rory and Lorelai. Among them is Taylor. He’s all about making the town just so. He maintains an impeccably groomed lawn and is on the town’s beautification committee.
Not only that but Taylor’s also a business owner and Stars Hollow’s most politically involved inhabitant. He owns various buildings, or as Luke describes it, he’s “systematically buying up the town.” Taylor owns Doose’s Market, an apartment complex, and subsequently, much to Luke’s dismay, Taylor’s Olde Fashioned Soda Shoppe. In addition to that he’s town selectman. As such Taylor leads town meetings and organizes activities in Stars Hollow. And he accomplishes it all while wearing a cardigan.
Throughout the series it’s Taylor who grants the required permits and reprimands those who don’t adhere by town rules. On multiple instances his emphasis on obeying the rules angers Stars Hollow homeowners especially Luke, Lorelai, and Jackson Belleville (Jackson Douglas) (Jackson Douglas).
