Kathy Landin is a freelance internet pop-culture junkie (and web video producer). For a brief time in 2011, she was THIS close to being Charlie Sheen's social media intern for the summer.

Or, if you have a short attention span, get 140 characters of idiocy on Twitter.

Tom Selleck, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ — Actors Who Almost Played Famous Roles
Of course, Connery appeared in the film ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,’ but can you picture Tom Selleck in the title role?

Cary Grant, James Bond — Actors Who Almost Played Famous Roles

Jean Arthur, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ — Actors Who Almost Played Famous Roles
Imagine what the face of cinema would look like if the sweet and virginal Mary Bailey in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ had been played by comedienne Jean Arthur instead of the endearing and motherly Donna Reed.
