What If...

I found a sweet article listing out people who passed on, or were considered for, movie parts. Ever wonder what your favorite movie would have been like with someone else playing the hero? Check out the full article here. Here's some of my faves...

Little Miss Sunshine
Bill Murray turned down Steve Carell's role, which reportedly became one of the few choices in his career that he regretted.

Speed
Halle Berry turned down the role of Annie, later picked up by Sandra Bullock. Stephen Baldwin turned down the role of Jack - which went to Keanu Reeves.

The Passion of the Christ
Jason Patric turned down the role of Jesus in the Mel Gibson epic. Jim Caviezel put his hand up.

Pretty Woman
Daryl Hannah turned down the role of Vivian because she felt it was denigrating to women. She later appeared in Dancing at the Blue Iguana as a stripper. Molly Ringwald also passed. Vivian's role was snapped up by Julia Roberts and the rest is history. Al Pacino turned down Richard Gere's role.
