If Movies Followed Their Original Casting

Wild Ammo photoshopped seventeen movie posters to reflect original casting preferences. O.J. Simpson as the Terminator? Yes:
"The head of Orion, who were going to release the film, called me up and said, 'Are you sitting down? I've cast this movie. ... It's O.J. Simpson for The Terminator,'" Cameron said.

Luckily for Schwarzenegger -- and perhaps the public -- this sounded like a recipe for titanic failure to the director.

"I said, 'This is the stupidest idea I've ever heard,'" Cameron said. "I didn't know O.J. Simpson, I had nothing against him personally. I didn't know he was going to go murder his wife later and become a real Terminator."

Yup, Simpson was almost the Terminator. Who knows how the course of human history would have been affected if this had become a reality.

Will Smith would have been great in the matrix, but Cloony in Hancock? I donno about that. Matt and Ben in Brokeback you know they would never live down the rumors of it being true but they do have good chemistry.

Schwarzenegger would have still been in the movie as James had him originally as Kyle Reese (played by Michael Biehn) and wanted Lance Henriksen as the Terminator but he ended up playing (Detective Hal Vukovich)

I think Bowie would have made a good Hook

Ah, it also looks like WildAmmo shouldn't get the credit for this.
