28 Outstanding Roles That Literally Unthinkable To Recast

Recasting figures has to be the hardest profession in the world, even more, tough than firefighting. In history, we’ve seen Hollywood remake some of the most iconic characters, ruining them for us. Consider the case of Jared Leto, who was cast in the role of Heath Ledger and failed miserably.

There’s always that one exceptional actor who succeeds to complete a character’s shoes so brilliantly that no one else could have played it. They not only bring the character to life, but they also leave indelible imprints of their individual characteristics. And that leaves a lasting impression on the audience’s memory. That’s why it’s extremely challenging to recast them! Take a closer look at these 28 characters who can’t be replaced since their performers gave it all for the part.
