    Not really the same but it'd be interesting to see Christopher Lee as Gandalf

      he would've been just as good but had to be the bad wizard because he was Dracula and had a deep voice

      They wanted him so bad that he was offered $30M + 15% of the box-office earnings for the role. By now we know the latter would've meant almost half billion (yes, billion) dollars for him.
      The Scottish actor’s reason for turning down the role was quite straightforward: he didn’t understand the series. “I read the book. I read the script. I saw the movie. I still don’t understand it,”

          Sean Connery was always a thick Glasgow-Irish dockworker who lucked into a career he was good at but he honestly had no idea what he was doing.

      I guess his high reputation and standing would make him appear more serious to audiences which fits Saruman quite well. Gandalf is supposed to be more down to earth

        No, it would have cemented her career as a Marvel character and we wouldn't have gotten all the other great roles she's played. Frick Marvel movies. Can you imagine anyone else playing her role in Doctor Sleep?

      It still would have been a pile of woke shit, and probably killed her career. Be glad Brie took one for the team.

      Multiple biographies say George Lucas decided to cast Christopher Walken as Han and two unknown tv actors as Luke and Leia. He had to go with Hamill et al because Walken dropped out and because that Leia was lied about her age and was actually 15 or something.

      Are you drunk? Leia couldn't possibly have been more of a fricking tomboy. Unless you're one of those idiots who think tomboy just means short hair.

        i don't think tomboy is about looks at all
        but Jodie's teenage tomboy roles were a lot cooler than Carrie's Leia

        remind me again how bodybuilding went from "who can look the most like an arno breker statue" to "ultra swollen freaks who are on so much gear they all have no balls left"

          Easy to explain. When bodybuilding was first a thing there were no effective steroids. Once they became available, it was inevitable people would use it. People always cheat if they can, in every endeavor, in marriage, work, sports etc. Its normal human behavior.

            When did they stop using the steroids that Arnie used? Those seem like the best ones really.

    The king of this category is Mickey Rourke. Look up what kind of roles he passed up on. A better choice in here and there and his filmography would've looked insanely different.

    Jodie Foster later said that with this movie began the lowest point of her career, as she turned down worthy roles in Splash: Terminator (1984) and The Breakfast Club (1985).

    is that true? Did we miss out on kino? Although I have no issues with the cast of any of those movies.

      jakson's loort fans always laugh about connery rejecting the script and role in the movie, because they're fans.
      but jakson's lort script was, and is, objectively a shit.
      and connery was objectively right.
