Iconic Roles That Almost Had Different Actors

There are some movie roles that we see where the actor who is playing them appears as though it was the right decision from the beginning. We can’t picture anybody ever taking this role, right from the moment we see them.

The Hunger Games main character may appear like a flawless fit for Jennifer Lawrence yet she wasn’t the studio’s first choice. Lyndsy Fonseca and Abigail Breslin were two on-screen characters who were considered for the role before Lawrence.

Samual L. Jackson’s Mace Windu is kind of an extra character in the Star Wars prequels and maybe that’s why the role of the Jedi master was originally aimed at rapper Tupac Shakur. The performer’s untimely death ended that inkling and Jackson was used instead.
