A History of Iconic Roles That Famous Actors Turned Down

Leonardo DiCaprio as Max Dennison (Hocus Pocus, 1993)

Career-wise, this probably worked out best for him, but still—it would have been hilarious to see Leonardo DiCaprio headlining 1993’s Hocus Pocus. Apparently, the role of Max Dennison was originally offered to DiCaprio, but he was forced to turn it down so he could appear in Lasse Hallström’s What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. The role, instead, went to actor Omri Katz, who has not appeared in any new projects since 2006.
