13 Iconic Sitcom Roles That Almost Went To A Different Actor

There are certain movies that are so well-known, so iconic, that they need no introduction. You know the ones we are talking about - The Godfather, Star Wars, The Shawshank Redemption. These movies have become a part of our culture and are referenced time and again in everyday life. They're the kind of films that people love to watch over and over again and never seem to get old.

Movies are often a form of escapism. They take us to different places and show us worlds we could never experience in our own lives. But sometimes, the scenes in these movies are so bizarre that they're hard to forget.

There are some iconic roles in sitcoms that were almost given to a different actor. For example, the role of Chandler Bing on "Friends" was originally given to Matthew Perry's friend, Jonathon Schaech. But Perry convinced the producers to give him the role because he knew he could play it better. And we're glad they did! Check out some other iconic roles that were almost played by someone else.
