There have been plenty of movie roles over the years, that originally set out with a particular actor in mind, before changing and recasting the role at the last-minute. Here we start you on your way to our top 10 recast list, starting with the role of Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy.
As all of you are very well aware, the Back to the Future trilogy starred Michael J. Fox in the lead role of Marty McFly. Michael was simply sensational in the Back to the Future movies, making him a global star, yet it seems that things could have been completely different.
Eric Stoltz was originally cast in the role of Marty McFly in Back to the Future and even spent five weeks shooting his scenes for the movie. Unfortunately for Eric, he was given the boot from Back to the Future, following a difference in "comedy sensibilities", as revealed by producer Robert Zemeckis.
Michael J. Fox was then brought on board to replace Eric Stoltz, with all of his scenes reshot and the time travelling movie becoming a huge hit with fans. It would be interesting to see what Eric Stoltz brought to the role of Marty McFly and whether Back to the Future would have been as successful with him on board. What do you think?
