Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl)
Can you imagine another actor starring in this movie? But did you know that Jack Sparrow’s role was written for Hugh Jackman? The directors withdrew him simply because he wasn’t famous enough outside of Australia.
This role was offered to Jim Carrey and Matthew McConaughey, who had much in common with Burt Lancaster. But McConaughey declined this offer.
