Have you ever sat down to watch a movie or TV show and just thought, “Something’s not right here”? The plot seems fine, the script is good, it’s well-produced, but for some reason you just aren’t into it. You just can’t shake this feeling and you aren’t buying whatever the show or film is trying to sell you.
Usually this is because the wrong actor was cast for a major role. It’s not that the actor isn’t talented or bad. They’re just wrong, and that wrongness bleeds into all the other parts of what you’re trying to enjoy. If that one role would have gone to someone else, it would have changed everything.
We asked some Cracked readers to provide us with their best examples of roles that were filled in by the wrong actor and, boy, you all didn’t disappoint. Here are some of the top ones we’ve received. So don't just sit there…get scrolling!
