These decisions changed Hollywood history!
Actors choose which roles they want to play. It’s a tricky process, because choosing to star in a project that does terribly can forever stain an actor’s career, while the right role can propel an actor to new heights and earn them major awards and recognition. Nearly every actor has a story about “the one that got away”: the role that didn’t pan out for whatever reason or that they straight up turned down. I often seems to happen that when an actor passes on a role, the person who does take the part ends up finding success with it, and Hollywood history is forever changed.
