      Some actors and actresses seem perfect for the role they play, they can even become iconic, but sometimes they were not the first choice to play that character, or the second, or the third......


      So, can you tell me who turned down the starring role in the following films, allowing someone else to take the part?

      1. Indiana Jones
      2. Star Wars (Han Solo)
      3. James Bond –(The Living Daylights)
      4. A fistful of dollars
      5. The Philadelphia Story
      6. Love me tender
      7. Love Story
      8. 48 hrs
      9. Blazing saddles (ok, not THE starring role here)
      10. Barbarella
      11. On her majesty’s secret service
      12. Ghost
      13. Raiders of the lost ark (Marion Ravenwood)
      14. Grease (Danny)
      15. 1,000,000 years B.C
      16. Gone with the wind (Rhett Butler)
      17. Dr No (James Bond)
      18. Who framed Roger Rabbit
      19. Kindergarten Cop
      20. Die Hard


      Have fun,

      Nikki

      Way to go Sarah. You're right, i only hav one actor/actress who turned down each part, in some of the examples there are sometimes more than one.
