Performers have gone through a lot to land a role. The arduous method of getting a part and putting out a thorough performance can deplete both physical and mental health, whether you're a beginner or a true box office star. As a result, it's always a major letdown when sequences are filmed, checks are signed, and the director makes a last-minute decision to remove an entire character. They arrived, the shot was fired, and they were cut. These are all the celebrities who couldn't avoid meeting the cutting room floor.

There are a variety of reasons why a highly anticipated performance may be canceled. Sometimes test audiences don't understand what the director is trying to do. In certain cases, the actor is simply too well-known for the part. And occasionally, right before your big ol' debut, you turn out to be a big ol' sex pest.
