13 Actors That Turned Down Huge Roles

13 Actors That Turned Down Huge Roles

We all know that movies can have a huge impact on our lives. They can take us to new worlds, introduce us to fascinating characters, and teach us about different cultures. But sometimes, movie roles go beyond the screen and have a real-life impact on the people who play them. Have you ever wondered what would have happened if certain actors had taken on different roles? 

Roles in movies can be big or small, but they always have an impact on the movie. Sometimes, a small role can be more important than a large one. For example, in The Dark Knight, the role of the Joker was only a small role, but it was very important to the movie. Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker was amazing and was one of his last roles before he died. His performance helped make the movie one of the best ever made.

In some cases, the stars aligned, and the perfect actor was cast in the role. However, in other cases, big names rejected potentially huge parts. Here are just a few examples of actors who turned down big roles.

Javier Bardem

They asked Javier Bardem to star in Minority Report, but he turned them down. Apparently, he was supposed to get Colin Farrell's role --but, he says, at that point he just didn't want to do an action role in English. Now I can, because I've done those roles. But at the time, it was difficult for me to jump into a foreign-language performance, he said. KED.COM


Amanda Seyfried

They wanted Amanda Seyfried to play Gamora, but she refused. I don't regret it because I didn't want to be green for six months out of every year, she said. CRACKED COM


Chris Rock

They asked Chris Rock to go on The Sopranos, but he said no. y. Apparently, he was afraid he'd ruin the show ..Sometimes you can respect something so much, you don't even want to be a part of it, he said. CRACKED COM


Rick Moranis

They asked Rick Moranis to show up in the Ghostbusters reboot, but he said no. The 2016 one, that is B and when asked to explain why, he said, I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago? CRACKED COM


Adrien Brody

Adrien Brody nearly had a part in the LOTR trilogy, but he said no. I, somehow, didn't grasp it. I don't know what part I would have been right for, but it was some Hobbit-like character. I was looking for something else, he said later. CRACKED COM


Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt could have been Black Widow if it wasn't for scheduling issues. And, for the same reason, she ended up not playing Peggy Carter in the MCU either. CRACKED COM


Brian Cox

Brian Cox had the chance to be on Game of Thrones, but he turned it down. In his memoir, he wrote, I'm often asked if I was offered a role in 'Game of Thrones' - - reason being that every other bugger was - and the answer is, yes, I was supposed to be a king called Robert Baratheon  CRACKED COM
