15 Actors Who Needed Some Persuasion To Take On Roles

It takes a lot to get some people to take a big role. There are plenty of actors out there who need persuasion to take on a large role in a movie. These are the roles that can make or break someone's career. Some of these actors only take on small roles, while others stick to what they know.
