Top 5 Best Casting Choices
We all have our favorite iconic character from films and series. But what if that iconic character was played by someone else?
- •Han Solo (Harrison Ford) / Star WarsBelieve it or not, our favorite intergalactic pilot was almost Kurt Russell. Lucas had actually gone through names like Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino and yes, none other than Christopher Walken himself, before he reluctantly casted Solo for the part.
- •Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) / Guardians of the GalaxyWhen casting, Marvel had, according to reports, a list of 8 actors who could play the part...and Pratt didn't make it.
- •Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) / Forrest GumpPerhaps Hanks' most famous role "Forrest Gump", actor John Travolta was actually offered the part first but turned it down. A decision he would later regret.
- •Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) / X-MenThanks to Mission Impossible II, Hugh Jackman isn't a nobody. Dougray Scott was first offered the role of the mutant but was caught up with filming Mission Impossible.
- •Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) - Iron ManThe face of the Avengers would be Tom Cruise if it had not been for his opinions on the scripts strength. Phew!
