If movies were made with their original cast (18 photos)

  • petwookiee

    Okay – Kurt Russel and who else in Starwars?

    • Roscoe

      Looks like Robbie Benson (Luke) and Cindy Williams (Leia).

      • alex

        Toshiro Mifune as Obi Wan.

  • your brother

    is this why keanu was sad – cos he's nobody's first choice?

    • dallas1354

      I don't care for Keanu but he's make millions grabbing those roles.

    Will Smith over Keanu any day!

        will smith would have sucked in the matrix

        • jaredallas

          If you want to talk original cast, the first person to read and turn down a part for the Matrix was Sean Connery as Morpheus.

        • Joeyk

          “Uh uh..look who’s back, fresh from the Men In Black. They call me the one you know me as big will, dodgin bullets in the matrix shoulda taken the blue pill hoohoo hahaa..”

      Will Smith only knows how to play one roll, smart-ass black guy.

      Keanu, on the other hand, knows how to play two:
      1. Ted Theodore Logan (Bill & Ted, Speed, Lake House, Replacements)
      2. Serious Ted Theodore Logan (Matrix, Day the Earth Stood Still, Constantine)

      Since 2 > 1, Keanu is a greater actor than Will Smith.

    • Tyrese Gibson

      Will Smith only knows how to play one roll – Smart ass black guy.

      Keanu Reeves on the other hand knows how to play 2:
      1. Ted Theodore Logan (Bill & Ted, Youngblood, Night After, Speed)
      2. Serious Ted Theodore Logan (Matrix, Day the Earth Stood Still, Constantine)

      Since 2 > 1, then Keanu Reeves > Will Smith

      • HellHathNoFury

        Tyrese Gibson knows how to spell, ‘role’ and only knows how to play one; smart-ass black guy.
        As in: Transformers, Transformers 2, 2 Fast, 2 Furious, Death Race, Baby Boy
        Keanu only knows how to play one role: emotionless git, as in: Bill and Ted, Speed, The Matrix, The Day the Earth Stood Still, everything else.
        Will Smith has emotions! as in ; the Pursuit of Happyness, I Am Legend, Independence Day, Seven Pounds, etc.
        You’re correct. Since, in The Matrix, the star was supposed to be confused the whole time, Keanu was the right man, complete with confused/frustrated facial expression throughout.

        • miniaq

          Will is a sci, so f* him.

          • Tyrese Gibson

            You better shut the f*ck up, and know your roll.

            Keanu Reeves has never acted like a fish that can get Jiggy Wit It (Shark Tale), therefore, he wins.

            • Beldar

              Will Smith would have been great in The Matrix. He probably would have made the last 2 installments enjoyable.

            • HellHathNoFury

              I do know my roll. His name is Kaiser. I love him.

            • MichaelGS

              Beldar im afraid youre wrong, no acting force on earth couldve made the last 2 matrix films enjoyable.

    just so some fag doesn’t say first….

    no way and clooney over smith in hancock

  • Robbo

    Edward Norton would have been awesome in American Psycho

  • The Dude

    David Bowie as the hook would have been awsome. And instead of calling his second in command Sme he could have called him Major Tom

  • Rummy

    that face off would have been the shit

  • fasterthanu

    George Clooney was cool in oceans 11 but apart from that he is highly overrated.

    • The Dude

      The Perfect Storm. O Brother, Where Art Thou. From Dusk till Dawn. Good Night, and Good Luck. Michael Clayton. All winners to me. He may say some goofy things but still a good actor in my opinion

      • fasterthanu

        Forgot all about O brother, yeah he has a few good hits. He is a great actor but just not THAT great, yknow?

        Good point.

        • HellHathNoFury

          And let’s not forget: he’s not THAT hot, ladies! He may be nice and funny, but really? The Clooney obsession is a bit odd.

          • femtrooper

            Yeah, I dont get the clooney thing either, not a bad actor,but he aint that pretty..

            • The Dude

              I concure. Good not great actor. And femtrooper if that is your picture you are gifted. Femtrooper a play on star wars or are you a state trooper? Because if your a state trooper you can cuff me and let me in you back seat any day.

  • Dr Rockso

    OJ!!! No fucking way

    • Dr Rockso

      Well I guess it’s true, interestingly enough.

      From The Terminator: Special Edition DVD liner notes:

      “The role of the Terminator was originally going to be portrayed by O. J. Simpson. But, according to (James) Cameron in 1984, ‘people wouldn’t have believed a nice guy like O. J. playing the part of a ruthless killer.’

      • The Dude


        • Mark

          When OJ was originally cast for Terminator, they said he wasn’t the killing type, so he didn’t fit the part. True story.

  • kitkat63376

    #`4…Glad Michelle Pheiffer didn’t take the role…Jodie Foster was AWESOME in this picture!!

    • P-90

      ‘Picture’…heh…that’s what my eighty year old grandmother calls movies.

  • Sauru

    most of these were better off with the switch, only a handfull would have been better imo with the original actor they wanted, faceoff being the biggest example.

    oj as the terminator would have been gay as hell

  • Anonymous

    Hate to disagree with the list…but it was actually Leo DiCaprio who was originally suppose to play Patrick Bateman in “American Psycho”…publicly confirmed by the author of the novel, Bret Easton Ellis. Though I have to say Ed Norton in that role would have been bad ass.

  • Equalizer

    I would like to see the movie “Meet the Parents” with Jim Carrey, that will be more hilarious…

  • Eden

    Actually Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) was supposed to be Hannibal in Silence of the lambs.

    • HellHathNoFury

      I would have watched it. Alan Rickman is strangely sexy and gross at the same time. He could talk to me all day.

      • thatguyyousaw

        wait, you say a clooney obsession is a bit odd?

        • HellHathNoFury

          I never said I wasn’t odd, in fact it’s one of my few redeeming qualities. I stand by my strange attraction.

          • thatguyyousaw

            i’m not knockin ya for it just found it odd. never hear of anyone sayin alan rickman and sexy in the same statement. way to stand by your strange attractions *thumps up*

  • WahWah

    I don’t think Affleck and Damon were ever really considered for Brokeback.

    I’m assuming the picture was just created to poke fun at their close relationship.

  • SaintxXxAsh

    ❤ Keanu

  • Anonymous

    I’m glad they made the switch in some of these and others they should have stuck with the originals.

    Butch Cassidy – Good call going with Robert Redford
    Jerry Maguire – Good call on Tom Cruise
    Alexander – Should have used Russell Crowe, he is a bad ass!

  • Anonymous

    Nicholas Cage would have been SO much better as John Constantine!

    • Amy

      no way! nicholas cage is horrid! now edward norton…he can be in anything and it will be wonderful.

  • Me

    Is that Toshiro Mifune in the star wars poster?

  • beldar821

    I say the Brokeback Mountain one is made up also.

  • Beldar


  • Gordon of Hesselink

    lol O.J. Simpson as the terminator. No sequels

  • Beldar

    Sorry folks to take up space here. I’m trying to figure out this damn gravatar thing.

    • HellHathNoFury

      We shall forgive you this one trespass. Do not fail us again.

  • Vihni

    DiCaprio was supposed to star in No. 8 (American Psycho) as the ORIGINAL cast member, then Ed Norton then Bale.
