Whether or not you’re willing to believe it, famous Hollywood actors can be just as expendable in their place of work as the rest of us. Even during a movie’s shooting, actors can be replaced for a myriad of reasons, be they creative differences, incompetence, miscasting, bad blood or illness. Don’t believe us? Here are 15 instances of a well regarded actor or actress being replaced in a production.

Stacey Dash’s replacement is a fairly recent entry on this list. The Clueless star was booted off the set of the race-based drama Supremacy (starring Danny Glover and Julie Benz) and replaced by actress Lela Rochon (Any Given Sunday). Rumor has it the switch-out was based on Dash’s difficult, Diva-like demeanor on set.

    uhhh… you guys posted a pick of brian geraghty in place of kel o’neil. How embarassing

    Stacey Dash out of Supremacy, starring Danny Glover, because of her “difficult, Diva-like demeanor”. 1. Dash came out in support of the Republican presidential nominee, caused a backlash. 2. Supremacy is a show produced this year. 3. Danny Glover-Castro…enough said. 4. “difficult, Diva-like demeanor”…wouldn’t this have been spoken of, previously? This wasn’t her first gig, to start; also, when you don’t have an answer/cant win an argument, you minimize and slander your opponent in order to divert attention.

    All that said, find it VERY hard to believe that this happened just because “she’s a diva”…

    Nicole Kidman would ve been a much much better choice than Foster,Nicole’s acting abilities have been proven way beyond excellent and beauty out of this world…Foster’s is…pedestrian at best….I would ve bought panic room with Nicole in it,whereas now I haven t even watched the movie.

      If you haven’t even watched the movie, how could you criticize Jodie Foster’s acting in it? She did an excellent job, and she and Kristen Stewart’s looks and chemistry gave a believable mother and daughter. The film is very entertaining.

      I think you should watch it Jay. As much as I Love Nicole the role would’ve had to be changed to fit her “acting abilities”. Sorry but Jodi is more of an action actor.

    Sad what the “tolerant” left do to any one who disagrees with their idiotic religion-like politics.
    Stacy Dash was black listed purely for her political views,if she falls back in line publically apologizes and kisses the Obamistas’ ring,maybe then she will be allowed to work in that putrid, corrupt world of Holliweird.

      No,she wasn’t—she also got let go last year from the cable show SINGLE GIRLS, due to an on-set disagreement with co-star Lisa Raye. So,this isn’t the first time she’s been let go from a project.

  • pathetic people

    I wouldn’t call most of these people stars. What a joke.

    “package Tracy”? Censorship’s a little heavy when the author of a piece can’t even use a Man’s name in the article.

    Package Tracy? Lt. Corporal?! Jeez get some new editors!!

  • yumenightfire27

    Extra 3 million for Michael J Fox as Marty McFly? Worth it. They know it too :3

    The greatest, yet unmentioned, replacement to me is still Sly Stallone from Beverly Hills Cop…ever notice why all of Eddie’s character’s friends were Italian?

  • mahadragon

    They left off Buddy Epsen who was supposed to play the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz. Buddy had allergic reaction to the silver paint and was replaced.

    Actually Miss Megan Fox called the director (correct me if I’m wrong) a “Nazi” and then she appologized after she realized someone was really listening instead of staring at boobs

      Her luck, he likes men.
