Top Ten Casting Choices That We Are All Grateful Were Changed Before The Movie Was Made: Movie Rob

I am thrilled to present movie watching machine Rob of Movie Rob on my blog today, who had a lovely idea for his list, and there are many on here that I think you will all be able to agree with! If you do not already follow Rob’s blog, I would highly recommend it. Rob also runs an awesome feature called Genre Grandeur every month, in which you submit your favourite film in the given genre that has been selected, join it, it is a lot of fun!

Should you be interested in submitting a Top Ten list, draw up a list of either your top ten personal favourite movies or a top ten list by a specific genre/theme and send it along to me at sporadiczoe@hotmail.com. Hope to see a few more lists!

When choosing a cast for a movie, many directors and producers have certain actors in mind for particular roles and sometimes they are correct on their first thoughts and sometimes, they aren’t.

Here is a list of 10 casting decisions that we are quite grateful for. If the original choice hadn’t turned down these iconic roles (or in one particular case, been fired after they filmed for 5 weeks (#8), our view of EVERY one of these iconic roles and the movies they appear in would be seen much differently by the entire world.

10. Mick Jagger – Irwin Fletcher in Fletch (1985)

9. Gwyneth Paltrow – Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic (1997)

About Zoë

I am 25 years old and I live in South Africa. I love to read, and I watch a lot of series and movies. I am currently studying part time, and I am thoroughly enjoying my course. I work full time, too. I am viewed as somewhat of a geek, I am crazy about The Lord of the Rings, Batman (the initial two Tim Burton ones, and the last three Christopher Nolan ones), Star Wars, Harry Potter (although not those dreadful movies), The Godfather, James Bond, Hannibal, Indiana Jones, mob movies, war movies, reading as much as I can and binge watching television series. Some of my favourite authors are Karin Slaughter, Stephen King, Dennis Lehane, Joe Hill, John Green, Thomas Harris, and Stieg Larsson. I love film, and have extensive lists of people who's work I enjoy. I am a ridiculously huge fan of Leonardo DiCaprio (ask anyone, they'll confirm it), and I honestly believe Christopher Nolan can do no wrong. Quentin Tarantino never fails to thrill me, either, and Martin Scorsese is phenomenal. I review a lot on my blog because I love to share my opinion about things and get into some great discussions, so please feel free to chat with me! View all posts by Zoë
