thought I'd share this interesting video on very close casting choices Hollywood were gonna make but were changed, had they gone with the original choices they would have been VERY different movies! those movies certainly wouldn't be the classics they are today.



oh my, what could have been! :shock:

I watched Very Bad Things (98) the other night and read the trivia on IMDB. it said Adam Sandler was originally cast as Jeremy Pivin's character but dropped out at the last minute to make The Water Boy. I think he made the right choice, Jeremy took over and quite frankly he was the better actor for the job. he is the character, it suits him so well. cannot see Sandler in that role, it would have been very different!

talk about close casting choices, Kevin Spacey filmed his scenes for All the Money in the World but due to things I won't mention his scenes were cut out and Christopher Plummer refilmed his scenes in under 2 weeks! you can see old trailers with Spacey in the role, and see the movie with Plummer. so in some alternate reality there would be a release with a Spacey in it. had the stuff not come out in the news about him we would still have him in the movie.

crazy!
