Top Ten Films They Should Have Made Blogfest


Inspired by the recent revelation that Clint Eastwood was asked to play both James Bond and Superman, I’ve decided to hold my first film related blogfest.

Ever looked at your favourite actor or actress and thought they should have been Luke Skywalker or Supergirl? Ever wondered how hilariously funny it might have been to watch Danny DeVito play Dirty Harry or Walter Matthau as The Godfather? Well now’s your chance to blog about it. On the 9th November tell us all about your top ten alternate actors and actresses, and the films you wanted to see them in and why. Give us your list of the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright weird.

Sign up to the Top Ten Films They Should Have Made Blogfest below. Enjoy!

Update: As the 9th November is a few weeks away, I'll be posting and sending reminders nearer the time.

  1. Ellie, I tried Mr. Linky a couple of times, and kept getting a long error message! I don't know what I'm doing wrong....and just now I would've sworn I left a comment, but it's not showing up! Am I in The Twilight Zone??

  3. Golly - I don't think I can come up with ten! But I shall certainly lurk!! Good luck everyone!

    And slightly off topic - my fave classic film anecdote that may or may not be true was how the original leads of Casablanca were going to be Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan.

    Take care

    Somehow I've managed to list my blog as Dave Wrotes This, which is an awkward plural.

  13. Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far - I can feel the excitement already!

    Please feel free to mention it on your blogs and to use the blogfest image; the more bloggers who join in, the more fun it should be.

    As the 9th November is a few weeks away, I'll be posting and sending reminders nearer the time.

  16. What an interesting concept! Will take the idea to bed and see if I can come up with a super(girl) idea.

  17. Nice idea Ellie, though this is more my Hubby's thing than mine. I wouldn't have a clue with this. I shall look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with, though :O)

  18. I heard that Tom Selleck was the original pic for Hans Solo.
    I don't know if I'm participating yet because I have not been hit by inspiration. I have linked your blogfest on my site though. :)
