Movie Roles You Won’t Believe Were Passed On By Big Stars

The definition of art varies from individual to individual. For some KRK is a work of art, drugs and for some art is M.F Hussain's product of imagination. Totally depends on one's prespective, no judgement there. Great arts are those that coax viewers to understand and decipher the visual poetry composed by its Creator. Some artworks are so stimulating that it lives on through ages, defying conventions and rules in the process. Here are a few ground breaking masterpieces whose magnificence cannot be ignored :

The Arnolfini Wedding by Jan van Eyck

Arnolfini
P.C.

This is right out of some Illuminati hand book. The 1434 oil painting, at first glance looks like any basic art. But if you go all ACP Pradyuman on it and focus in on the mirror it shows Sunny Leone. Okay, I am lying, but that would have been awesome eh! But seriously though the mirror does show two additional characters, one of which is speculated to be Eyck himself. Renaissance photo bombing at its best.

No. 5 by  Jackson Pollock

Number 5
P.C.

I know it looks like something you could only see under black light, but believe me it’s not. It’s an abstract art by the great Jackson Pollock. His style has divided the population into groups, where a fraction believes he conned people into buying random paint splatter in the name of art, and another fraction who genuinely regard his work as the very best form of expressionism. The painting that you see above was sold for around 156.8 million American dollars to an anonymous buyer. Time to re-evaluate you life decisions eh!

The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

Venus
P.C.

No, this is not a still from some erotic novel, you pervert. Behold Botticell's masterpiece. It is beautiful and sensuous, in other words if it were upto the CBFC it would totally censor this work of art in the name of cultural preservation.

Guernica by Pablo Picasso

P.C>
P.C.

Picasso’s Guernica is HUGE. Literally. It measures 3.5 metre (11 ft) tall and 7.8 metre (25.6 ft) wide. It features humans, animals and buildings, all depicted in his famous style. Guernica is definitely one of the most all-encapsulating Picasso works. It's dark, violent and morbid theme will make you feel as uncomfertable as the time you were caught staring at something you were not supposed to.

Composition 8 by Vasily Kandinsky

Composition 8
P.C.

Medically synesthesia (A Mental Disorder) is defined as the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body'. Like Whaaaaaat? Well basically it means if you have this disorder, you are getting laid. A person with synesthesia can actually hear colour and see music and smell, and so on. Kandinsky's Composition 8 is believed to be the product of his synesthesia. It's beautiful and esoteric, unlike you.

Maybe art doesn't evoke emotions in all of us but its cultural impact cannot be denied. Even cave-men* understood the importance of art as a mode of communication and the Egyptians too. So why don't you go ahead and try your hand at painting? Come up with something like Pollock, I stress again that he actually used paint brush, so avoid.

*Yeah! I totally was talking about you. Lol.

Just imagine Chunky Pandey playing SRK's role in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Not a pretty picture eh? Personally I believe it would have made the movie far more entertaining but then again I am weird. So forgive me for making such a blasphemous statement. Please don't ka... ka.. ka... kill me. You see, viagra dosage every once in a while an actor of great prominence lets a role slip by, ailment that consequently goes on to become iconic. I assume they went on to regret their decision and probably cried in the dark for making such a mistake.

So here is a list of actors that passed on great roles/movies which went on to break box office records :

Sean Connery – Lord of the Rings 

Sean
P.C

Sean 'James Bond' Connery was offered the role of Gandalf from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy. He probably had had a little too much stirred martini on the day of script reading because he actually rejected the role. Come on, decease which grown ass man doesn't want to be an insanely powerful and hairy wizard. Anyway, Sir Ian McKellan eventually landed the role of the famous wizard. Lord of the Rings went on to win numerous prestigious awards by which I mean Oscars duh!  On the plus side it made the producers criminally rich.

Will Smith – The Matrix

Will
P.C

Keanu is Neo. Period. The man is as expressive as a chair but that worked to his advantage in The Matrix films, you have to agree to that. Will Smith was initially offered the role but due to lack of better judgement he let go of it. Later on the Fresh Prince did admit to regretting the decision. Poor guy never got a chance to save the world while wearing leather pants.

John Cusack – The Breakfast Club

John
P.C

'The Breakfast Club' is a timeless classic that you have to get your hands on. John Cusack, the star of 2012, was suppose to play the part of 'Bender' but due to schedule conflicts he had to pass it on.  Judd Nelson ended up with the role, the chick and all the glory, while Mr. Cusack was trying to woo a girl by hoisting a blaring stereo over his head.

Kevin Costner – Kill Bill 

Kevin
P.C

First of all when Quentin Tarantino offers a role, you take it, no questions asked. Kevin Costner learnt that the hard way. Mr. Water World was offered the role of 'Bill' in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 but he opted out as he wanted to direct Open Range, *cough cough* a ground breaking movie you probably have never heard of. Kill Bill went on to become a world wide rage furthering the legacy of Tarantino as one of the greatest storytellers of his generation.

Al Pacino – Star Wars

Al
P.C

Al Pacino is the dude. The man yells on behalf of all mankind and we love him for that. Initially the 'Scarface' actor was considered to be part of the Star Wars Universe as Han Solo but due to certain reasons he let go of the role. Harrison Ford took the part of the smart-mouth smuggler whose best friend is an alien (Who is as hairy as your girlfriend). The movie went on to strike box office gold and gave birth to a whole new breed of nerds obsessing over Princess Leia and Chewbacca equally.

So movie buffs everywhere, if you know of any such epic roles that were passed on by great actors definitely let us know, we would love to hear from you.
