A collections of alternate castings that might have happened. This list includes actors who auditioned for roles, were offered roles, pursued roles, turned down roles, were rumored for roles, were preferred by studios or directors, were originally cast, or other things like that. A couple of these were rumors that turned out to be fake, but I included them anyway. This is an ongoing list.
