Sometimes, because of a busy agenda, actors are forced to refuse roles for important films that will be a great success. Kate Winslet is the perfect example, she had declined the proposal to play in Shakespeare in Love, a film that has made a real hit in the cinema and has allowed Gwyneth Paltrow to win an Oscar. The same goes for Tom Cruise, who has refused the role of Iron Man and has lost the opportunity to embody one of the most popular characters of the moment.
At BuzzDestination, we decided to show you what the famous movies would look like if they had been interpreted by the actors originally planned. Would they have had the same success? Or would they have become movies without much interest? Judge… you!
10. Hugh Jackman – Pirates of the Caribbean
Everyone is used to seeing Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, but in reality, he was not the one to bring this character to life. According to the revelations of the scriptwriter Pirates of the Caribbean, the charismatic pirate was created with the intention that Hugh Jackman interprets this character. However, Disney did not agree.
At that time, the actor was not known in Hollywood, but on his native land, in Australia. As a result, Disney opted for Johnny Depp to play the lead role in the saga.
