    Default 15 Actors who turned down iconic roles

    Pretty interesting...

    I could totally see some of the casting (Leo in American Psyco or Belushi in Arthur, even Connery as Morpheus) - but others...Cruise as Iron Man - not so much.

    There are more tidbit on other roles these actors didn't get / turned down..

    I loved Marlon Wayans' bit. He didn't even appear in Batman Forever yet he still got paid and gets residuals. Everyone wins in that situation: he can say he did it, we don't have to watch it.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Damn, does Tom Hanks send John Travolta a check every year?
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Look at all of the roles Jennifer Jason Leigh turned down:

    Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge:

    "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built and it is terrific."
