Stars Who Turned Down Iconic Movie Roles

2 of 34

Pacino Passed on 'Star Wars' and 'Die Hard'

Al Pacino has had a wildly successful career, but even he has made some mistakes. The actor recently revealed during a sit-down at the Palladium in London that he passed on the role of Han Solo in "Star Wars" because he "didn't understand the script." The part helped catapult Harrison Ford's career.

Pacino also rejected the part of John McClane in "Die Hard," which turned a then-unknown Bruce Willis into an action superstar. "I gave that boy a career," Pacino said. "I'm not a very good judge of what's good." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images)
