Whether they like it or not, Hollywood is packed with actors and actresses who will forever be associated with the role that first made them famous. More often than you'd think, however, the role wasn't even intended for them in the first place!

For instance, can you imagine anyone other than Ryan Gosling as Noah in 'The Notebook'? Well apparently George Clooney almost booked the part! Oh, and Paul Newman could've ended up playing the role of older Noah, which James Garner ultimately portrayed. Who says so? George Clooney himself.

Check out this gallery to find out which other stars nearly missed out on their most iconic roles.
