If you could replace an actor, with a different actor for the film's overall betterment?
What film would you choose, and which actors?

I'd go with Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992). I'd want to replace Keanu Reeves with Johnny Depp. I think Depp would have made that film better. Plus Hopkins, Oldman and Depp in 1992 would have been epic.

I’ve always wondered how Ghostbusters would have been if mid-prime Eddie Murphy played Winston.

I don’t know how it would have worked out, certainly the role changed to have more prominenance.

In The Dark Night, instead of Maggie Gyllenhaal have an attractive female play Rachel Dawes.

It’s rumored Marion Cotillard was supposed to play her character, but Nolan found out she’s a moon landing denier, so he fired her knowing that would undermine the message of the film.

Batman vs Superman, I'd swap out Eisenberg with, maybe Billy Zane as Lex Luthor

If Lex is correct and believable, that film gets better

If you would replace big lobowski Jeff bridges with Kurt Russel, I think that would work also.

Nope. That’s just like, you know, your opinion, man.

Mine is that there is not one, single role in that film right down to the geek/simp giggling at Maude’s house or the uniform cop at the car impound that should have had a different actor. Well, maybe Jesus’ bowling partner could have been performed by Art Carney, but I think he was like, dead.

I get what you’re saying. If anyone else could have played The Dude, it would be him. Just a little tweak to captain Ron.

Just no reason to do it, therefore your downvotes.

I actually thought sly was a little underrated amongst the rest of the cast - thought he did a good job

Not feasible due to age, but a young Clint Eastwood as Roland the gunslinger.
