For every actor who lands a role in a TV show or movie, there’s usually an actor (or several) who didn’t get the part. Even Hollywood’s biggest stars have to go through an audition process at some point, and that means dealing with rejection – for example, Blake Lively lost out to Amanda Seyfried on playing Karen Smith on “Mean Girls,” while “Better Caul Saul” actor Bob Odenkirk was incredibly close to playing Steve Carrell’s iconic Michael Scott on “The Office.” And apparently, Jennifer Lawrence once auditioned for “Twilight” – a role that would have kept her from eventually becoming Katniss Everdeen.

For every actor who almost missed out on their iconic roles, there are the actors who were almost cast instead. Some stars came down to the final few only to be beat out by another actor. Others were cast only to be fired and recast. There are even actors who were offered major roles and turned them down. We’ve rounded up actors who missed out on iconic parts, and you’ll likely be surprised by a few of these near-misses.
