We are almost there people. Yesterday we brought you Sylvester Stallone to Eddie Murphy in the role as Axel Foley in the Beverly Hills Cop movies and today, we come one step closer to seeing who tops the list. Now though, we bring the runner-up on our Top 10 recast movie roles list.
Hollywood veteran actor Harrison Ford is best known for the majority of his early work and will forever be remembered for playing the role of Indiana Jones. However, the iconic character almost ended up getting played by somebody else, who has also gone on to have a successful career.
A number of actors tested for the role of Indiana Jones and the one man who stood out the most, was none other than, the man with the moustache, Tom Selleck. Tom was offered the role of Indiana Jones and was all set to play the character, before contractual difficulties got in the way.
Tom Selleck had to turn down the role of Indiana Jones, as he had already agreed to play the lead in Magnum PI, so the role of Indian Jones then fell to Harrison Ford. It would have been interesting to see how different the Indiana Jones franchise would have been with Tom Selleck in place of Harrison Ford.
