Isn't it just sad that the actor who wanted to play a particular character doesn't get a role? But it's probably worse when the actor gets fired from the role he or she was supposed to represent. But since this is the movie industry, anything can happen.
These actors got fired from their movies due to reasons like lousy attitude towards the director, and having a mutual dispute and also gaining too much weight. Yes, that's a reason as well. But whatever be the reason, the film was still made, but without these actors being the part of it.
So, have a look!
Jean-Claude was fired from the movie 'Predator' when he refused to certain terms set up by the production team.
Michael J. Fox was not the first choice to play Marty McFly in Back to the Future franchise. Eric Stoltz even shot many scenes for movie's first part but was eventually dropped because he couldn't get the comic lines correctly.
The actor was initially hired to play the lead character in 'Beverly Hills Cop,' but sadly due to some differences, he was swapped with Eddie Murphy.
Megan Fox was an integral part of the Transformers franchise. But, she was asked to leave the series, after she compared the director of the movie, Michael Bay to Hitler.
She was supposed to play the female lead in 'Knocked Up,' but she was sacked after she argued with the director of the movie regarding the birth scene in the film. Anne was not comfortable to act in the scene because she had not experienced motherhood till then and Jude Apatow wanted to show the birth-giving scene. As a result, Katherine Heigl was hired.
This British actress was supposed to voice for the female lead in Spike Jonze's 'Her.' She was extremely cooperative, but somehow the director thought she just wasn't right.
It's hard to imagine Lord of the Rings without Viggo Mortenson, but did you know that Stuart Townsend was supposed to play that character initially? There was no particular reason why the actor was sacked from the movie.
Do you remember the amazing role of Catwoman in 'Batman Returns' of 1992? Michelle Pfeiffer played it, but the initial choice was Annette Bening. She was not actually fired but dropped out of the movie because she got pregnant.
Sinatra was supposed to play the lead in the iconic 'Dirty Harry,' but due to an accident he injured his arm and had to be replaced with Clint Eastwood.
Tom was supposed to play the lead role in 'Indiana Jones,' but Harrison Ford replaced him after the issues with his Magnum PI contract were highlighted.
That's all, folks!
