Burt Reynolds, ‘Star Wars’ — Actors Who Almost Played Famous Roles

It’s possible that Indiana Jones could've been Ford’s only iconic movie role too, if Burt Reynolds hadn’t turned down the opportunity to play Han Solo in ‘Star Wars.’ Al Pacino, Nick Nolte and Christopher Walken were all considered for the role, but it finally went to self-taught carpenter and galactic anti-hero, Ford. Can you imagine Christopher Walken asking Chewie to make the jump to light speed?

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? Selleck was originally cast as the dashing archeologist in ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ but had to turn down the role because of his contractual obligation to his hit show ‘Magnum P.I.’ Harrison Ford, who was Spielberg’s first choice, took over, and movie history was spared an Indiana Jones with a sweet 'stache.

Ralph Macchio, ‘Back to the Future’ – Actors Who Almost Played Famous Roles

You can, of course, fully fault Ralph Macchio for turning down the role of Marty McFly in 'Back to the Future,' because that guy pretty much went nowhere after bleeding the 'Karate Kid' franchise dry. He thought the movie would be lame because it was only about “a kid, a car and plutonium pills” and the role (after Eric Stoltz was dropped for being too dramatic in his portrayal of Marty) made Michael J. Fox an American sweetheart.

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. Arthur, who was known for sassy roles in ‘You Can’t Take it With You’ and ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,’ turned down the role because she was already committed to a Broadway show. Thankfully, this allowed Ms. Reed to make her own indelible mark on iconic motherhood.
