10 Actors Who Were Not the First Choice for Their Most Known Roles
We all know and love the iconic roles that our favorite actors played, and most of them, no matter how many movies they make, are still remembered for the same role, no matter how old the movie is. But have you ever considered that your favorite actor might not have been the producers’ first choice for the part? Here are some great actors which were not the first choice for their most known roles:
Harrison Ford in Star Wars
As hard as it might be to believe, Harrison Ford was not George Lucas’ first choice for the role of Han Solo. Can you image another actor playing one of the most iconic roles in the history of cinematography? It turns out that George Lucas first thought of Christopher Walken for the role and while we understand George’s choice, due to the fact that Walken can easily pull off a character such as Han Solo, it is hard to image Star Wars with other than Harrison Ford. Do you think Christopher Walken would have been a better choice?
All these movie would have looked a lot different if their leading roles were played by other actors than the ones we know but we can never say if they would have been better or not. We just have to enjoy the cast that we got, and you have to admit that all of them did amazing things for the movie industry, and play the different versions in our mind, with a little help from our imagination. Do you see Tom Cruise as Edward Scissorhands?
