9 Actors That Were Replaced By The Other Stars You Might Not Know
In Hollywood, replacement of actors is normal as thousands of people audition for the role. Well, there are some of the famous series/movies which would have been different if they would not have got replaced. Let's have a look over it!
Sad and romantic Rajesh!
I’m a big of Kunal Nayyar. I can’t see anybody as his replacement. But before casting Kunal, Iris Bahar, a comedian, director, and writer would have played the scientist role. He role was to have a crush on Leonard. She was named to be Gilda in the Big Bang Theory!
Penny! Penny! Penny!
In the pilot of the Big Bang Theory which was never aired, Katie played the role of Penny. Just imagine, the role played of the aspiring actress would have been played by Canadian actress Amanda Walsh. Well, I can’t! Kaley Cuoco was not cast for the first time as the casting director thought that she was so young but she was called later for the audition!
Just imagine the iconic couple Ryan and Rachel McAdams in the Notebook. Well, they’re an iconic couple on the screen. The first choice was Britney Spears. Ryan Gosling said in an interview, “…but when Adams came to audition everything changed and she got the role immediately.”
The world knows that Charlie Sheen was fired due to the controversy between the producer and him. Warner Bros was furious with his immoral behavior. Well, he was replaced with Ashton Kutcher. The series was not a big hit after his replacement.
Ross’s first wife!
F.R.I.E.N.D.S is no doubt a fantastic show. Well, if you know that Carol was replaced by another actress. Ross’s ex-wife was the one who decided to leave the show and she was replaced by Jane Sibbett.
The Great President!
Steven Spielberg was sure to play the role of Abraham Lincoln in the movie but he said he lost his passion and wasn’t suitable for the role. There’s no doubt that Daniel Day-Lewis was a perfect fit and he won an Oscar for it!
Lord of Rings!
Sean Connery was the first choice for Gandalf. In an interview, he said, “I never understood it. I read the book. I read the script. I saw the movie. I still don’t understand it.” Sir Ian McKellen said that he is happy that the creator took a risk by hiring him!
There’s no doubt that no one would have played a better role than Jack. In an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Kate Winslet said that Matthew McConaughey was the first choice of the movie.
Games of Thrones!
It was obvious that the creator had to change the Tommen, Cersei’s son. Well, creators had to change as he wouldn’t fit the role of the young king!
