8 Famous Actors Revealed The Ultimate Dream Roles They’ve Never Gotten To Play

Many believe that a highest-paid actor can score any role they want. However, it’s not true. Plenty of actors who own a great number of fans, have to wait for their ultimate dream roles and may not never land their desired roles of a lifetime.
