Actors who almost got the part...

When you're watching a movie, do you ever wonder what other actors were up for the lead parts? I'm a sucker for this sort of fun trivia, so I was all over this list of actors who almost got the part. Can you believe Jennifer Lawrence was almost Bella Swan in Twilight? Here are six more of my "can't-believe-it" favorites...
Nicolas Cage as John Bender in The Breakfast Club
Gwyneth Paltrow as Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic
Britney Spears as Allie Calhoun in The Notebook
Matt Damon as Jack Sully in Avatar
Christina Aguilera as Alison Scott in Knocked Up
Al Pacino as Han Solo in Star Wars

Who knew? Are you surprised by any of them? Any other movie roles you think should have been re-cast? xoxo


  1. Wow, this is so interenting! thanks so much for sharing! Xo,

  2. Britney as Allie and Al as Han Solo... No, no, nnnooo. That would have been a disaster. ;)

  3. Fun!

    I also read once that Pamela Anderson almost got the part of Susan Mayer in Desperate Housewives but she refused to dye her hair dark and so Teri Hatcher stepped in.

  4. Think of what Twighlight could've been!!!!! This is so cool, great post

  5. You might also be interested to know that Molly Ringwald turned down Ghost AND Pretty Woman. Imagine that, she had terrible management, at the same time I can't see anybody but Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.

  6. Very cool, indeed! :-)

    I honestly cannot picture anyone else as these characters - especially such classic movies like Star Wars!

    Thanks for sharing :-)

  7. I'm stunned!! Omg I don't think ANY of those movies would have been the same with the other people! Especially Star Wars! Al Pacino is a great actor but he is not Han Solo! Wow great choices Hollywood!!


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
