Actors Who Almost Got the Part

Will Smith

Will Smith turned down Jamie Foxx's part in Django Unchained because he "needed to be the lead." "Django wasn't the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead!," he tells Entertainment Weekly about Christoph Waltz's Oscar-winning bounty hunter role. But Smith has no hard feelings toward director Quentin Tarantino. "I thought it was brilliant," he says of the film. "Just not for me."
