Hollywood has made millions of movies from one-hit-wonders to blockbusters to iconic award winning movies that you could watch over and over again. But did you ever stop to wonder what if these incredible movies were made by someone else? Because this is Hollywood and sometimes your favourite character wasn’t always the actor the director originally had in mind. Case in point? Avatar was a hit for director James Cameron with multiple sequels planned in the pipeline. The movie, however, would have been completely different if Matt Damon took on the role of Jake Scully which he was offered in this infamous movie.
How you doin’?
Matt LeBlanc made us laugh with his dimwitted replies and hilarious pickup lines in Friends but did you know that he was first offered the role of Phil Dunphy on Modern Family? LeBlanc reportedly turned down the role because he thought he wasn’t right for it but commended the sitcom for its really good script. With his awkward behaviour and quirky mannerisms, we are kinda happy this role went to Ty Burrell who went on to star in this award-winning show.

I’ll be back!
Imagine the Terminator with no Terminator? Apparently, James Cameron wanted to give Arnie’s iconic role to a friend of his, Lance Henriksen. Luckily for us all he did not. Arnold Schwarzenegger then went on to say his iconic, ‘I’ll be back’ line and the rest, as they say, was history. Play on the thrilling Terminator II slot at All Slots Casino!
Emma Stone vs Emma Watson
Emma Watson was first offered the role in La La Land and it created upcoming buzz for the movie. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts (Watson was set to start work on Beauty and the Beast), the role went to Stone. And let us be honest with her dance and singing training she really was the best actress for the Belle role in Beauty and the Beast.
What a Scandal!
Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope in the award-winning Shonda Rimes television programme, Scandal. But what most people do not know is that the role first went to Connie Britton who was well known for her role in Spin City. Can you picture anyone else besides the talented Washington as Olivia? Neither can we!
Bend and snap!
Reese Witherspoon is nothing like her character in Legally Blonde, yet this talented actress made the role her own going on to star in the sequel to the movie; Legally Blonde 2. Married with Children actress, Christina Applegate was first offered the role but did not want to portray another ditzy blonde and turned down the role.
