Oh what?! Will Turned down Neo? DUDE. Will would have MAULED the screen so much better than Reeves as Neo. Thank god DiCaprio didn't get it though.

Oh and the video at the bottom. SUCKED.

"Keanu Reeves turned down Charlie Sheen’s role in 'Platoon'."
Maybe there is a God?

"No pictures? Boo."
My thoughts exactly. ^_^

But we know these actors (by sight) quite well, perhaps that's why it's like that.

Who cares what Wills Smith rejects?
He is the best paid actor currently... turning down a role wouldn't make much of a difference to him.

Yeah I agree about the Will Smith comment. Who cares that he turned down Phone Booth?

Moral of the story: NEVER turn down a role.

The only one I thought would have been better would be Tom Hanks as Andy in The Shawshank Redemption.

Also, whoever formated this lists bunched together, small print should be ashamed

I think the movies were hits was partially because the actors that starred in them did a good job.

Mel Gibson in Gladiator? Denzel Washington in Ray? Tom Hanks in The Shawshank Redemption? These weren't "shoe-in" roles that any monkey could have done.

Omg.. Michelle Pfeiffer and Jodie Foster were originally cast as Thelma and Louise but had to drop out as pre-production dragged on. Imagine how cool that would have been.. :D Fanciable lesbians!!

Another problem with the backwards-posting!

The one they really forgot is that done by Sean connery.

He turned down the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, he was going to play gandalf.
