I was reading an interview with one of my favorite actors Denzel washington in GQ recently. They asked him what were some of the roles he turned down that he regretted. He said ‘Seven’ and ‘Michael Clayton’.
He also said he really, really wanted Willem Dafoes’ character in ‘Platoon’. Which I thought would have been outstanding. Although I love Platoon and Dafoes performance, Denzel could have added a whole different layer. He also wanted a role in ‘Full Metal Jacket’. Could you imagine that? He got into a big disagreement with Kubrick though.
Anyone know of similar stories with other actors? Or roles you would have wished they would have taken??
