Cool website alert!

I found a really cool website called that details what actors turned down or were fired from movie roles. You can browse by actor or by movie. Some of the the worthwhile nuggets are just jaw-dropping like the fact that Chevy Chase turned down the role of Lester Burnham in American Beauty. A role that Kevin Spacey ended up taking and won an Academy Award for. Or, even more jaw dropping, OJ Simpson was considered for the role of the Terminator that ended up going to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I also love examples that probably would have made movies better. Like Sarah Jessica Parker being considered for the role of Carrie in the movie Four Weddings And A Funeral. A role that ended up going to Andie McDowell who almost singlehandedly ruined that movie.

Top 5 Hugh Grant movies
1. The Remains Of The Day
2. Love Actually
3. Notting Hill
4. Four Weddings And A Funeral (despite Andie McDowell)
5. About A Boy

Here is the link. Trust me, it will give you hours of entertainment.
