Actors who quit big roles for ridiculous reasons

[post_page_title]Sean Connery just didn’t get the script[/post_page_title]
This might just be the biggest missed opportunity in Hollywood history. When director Peter Jackson was gearing up to film The Lord of the Rings, he had one man in mind to star as the wizard Gandalf – 007 himself, Sean Connery!

Sean Connery just didn’t get the script

He was so desperate to have Connery’s star power, in fact, that he offered him $6 million, on top of a 15-percent take of all box office receipts. Connery flatly refused, saying he didn’t understand the script. He didn’t even get it after the movie came out! No biggie – he just missed out on about a $450 million payday.
