OBOZREVATEL will tell you some interesting facts about such famous actors as Keanu Reeves, Harrison Ford and Jason Isaacs. They proved that their creative ideas deserve attention (to see the photos, scroll to the end of the page).
Keanu Reeves - "John Wick"
The franchise starring the legendary Canadian actor Keanu Reeves has been a favourite with audiences for many years. However, few people know that the first part could have been a fiasco if the actor hadn't gotten into a dispute with the scriptwriters. That's because, according to the original plan, John Wick was a 70-year-old man who had worked as a mercenary many years ago. And the main role was planned to be given to Clint Eastwood or Harrison Ford. But during the casting, the director liked the charismatic Keanu. Reeves refused to artificially age the film and suggested making the plot more dynamic.
Harrison Ford - "Blade Runner"
American actor Harrison Ford became a favourite of the public thanks to his role as replicant hunter Rick Deckard in the film Blade Runner. Many other famous actors, such as Dustin Hoffman or Jack Nicholson, were considered for the role. However, Ridley Scott chose the young Ford. But it is likely that he later regretted it. According to the plot of the film, the truth was to be revealed - Deckard himself is a replicant and hunts his own relatives. Harrison was outraged by this twist and began to argue with the film producer. In the end, the celebrities found a compromise and agreed to leave the ending open so that the audience could decide for themselves who Rick Deckard really is.
Jason Isaacs - "Harry Potter"
Lucius Malfoy, the father of Harry Potter's main rival Draco Malfoy, was supposed to be a short-haired and grey-haired man with a running eye and a funny striped suit. But the British actor Jason Isaacs, who played the role, did not agree with this image. The actor ridiculed the character, saying that he had been playing villains for years and knew what Malfoy should look like. The celebrity decided that Lucius would have long white hair, aristocratic habits and a haughty look. And he was right! The secondary character became one of the most memorable.
