These Actors Turned Down Roles in 2005's 'Brokeback Mountain'

These Actors Turned Down Roles in 2005's 'Brokeback Mountain'

Brokeback Mountain could have had a very different cast!

Ang Lee ended up directing the film, but before signing on, director Gus Van Sant was also in the running to direct the groundbreaking 2005 film.

Gus spoke in an interview about the actors he originally offered roles to, before they turned it down.

“Nobody wanted to do it. I was working on it, and I felt like we needed a really strong cast, like a famous cast. That wasn’t working out. I asked the usual suspects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe. They all said no,” Gus told IndieWire.

“Yes, all those young gentlemen (at the time) turned down the project, for various reasons,” producer and screenwriter Diana Ossana confirmed.

Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal ended up starring in the film, and both received Oscar nominations for their work.

FYI: Ang Lee ended up winning the Oscar for Best Director for his work on the film! The film also was nominated for a slew of other Oscars.

Paul Rudd & Evangeline Lilly Bring 'Ant-Man And The Wasp' To Rome!

Paul Rudd & Evangeline Lilly Bring 'Ant-Man And The Wasp' To Rome!

Paul Rudd is all smiles as he poses alongside his co-star Evangeline Lilly while attending the photo call for their hit film Ant-Man and the Wasp held at Hotel de Russie on Thursday (July 19) in Rome, Italy.

The 49-year-old actor recently expressed that the comedy of him playing an ant superhero isn’t lost on him.

“There’s something a bit ridiculous about watching someone run around in an ant suit,” Paul admitted (via Mr. Porter). “There are moments where you want to say, ‘It’s a movie about ants.’ But there’s something endearing about the passion of the fan base. When people are really into a specific thing, unless it’s collecting bodies, I think there’s something pure and joyous and celebratory in it.”

“I don’t think anyone’s going to look at me and say, ‘You know who he reminds me of? Thor’,” Paul continued. “There is something pretty hilarious about knowing you exist in action-figure form. When the first Ant-Man came out, there was a Mr Potato Head Ant-Man. I also have a Lego figure. I got a kick out of that.”
