15Al Pacino (Han Solo)
Now, it seems difficult to imagine someone like Al Pacino in the role of Han Solo, but in the '70s, every major Hollywood studio wanted the actor in their movies, and Lucasfilm was no different.
George Lucas offered Han Solo to Pacino, and The Godfather actor turned down the part. He
had nothing against the smuggler or the film; he just had too much on his plate at the time, too many projects to choose from, and Star Wars wasn't high on his list.
Pacino told MTV News: "It was at that time in my career where I was offered everything. I was in The Godfather. They didn't care if I was right or wrong for the role, if I could act or not act." He added: "I remember not understanding it when I read it. Another missed opportunity."
