Stars who rejected iconic roles and someone else got that chance

Most celebrities are offered so many roles on the daily basis that they don’t want to worry about being unemployed. However, they may sometimes have a dilemma as to what role they should take or decline. It’s hard to predict if the particular movie has a chance to make a profit and make the actors even more famous. It is obvious that they sometimes turn down roles that then become iconic. But it’s too late. Their fellow star gets the chance and bathes in the spotlight.

"I had to be there to do that and, as I was saying before, you can’t half-arse a project like this – you’re in or you’re out. And I was like, 'I’ve kinda got to be all in', and so this was really where my heart was and I knew I had to fully commit and make sure that I did this."

He said: "I got offered The Lord of the Rings, and I turned it down because I didn't understand it. I was offered The Matrix twice, and I turned it down because I didn't understand it. I don't understand this movie, but I'll be damned if I'm going to turn it down."
