Brad Pitt – The Bourne Series
Brad Pitt is known for starring in some of Hollywood’s most successful films. However, did you know that he turned down playing Jason Bourne? The role went on to launch Matt Damon into stardom. Pitt chose to play a CIA agent in the movie Spy Game, which obviously did not have the same success as the Bourne film franchise.
Eddie Murphy – Rush Hour
Did you know that Eddie Murphy was offered the role of James Carter role in the hit film Rush Hour? He declined the role in order to act in the film Holy Man instead. That film ended up being quite a flop, while Rush Hour ended up a smash with a sequel film as well, with Chris Tucker playing the role of James Carter.
