“Bilbo Baggins“ was the part Shia LaBeouf imagined playing one day. But in the end it was Martin Freeman who got the part in The Hobbit. What a pity for Shia – but movies like Transformers would definitely not have been that successful without the actor‘s outstanding talent.
The part of "Katniss Everdeen" in The Hunger Games has in the end been cast with Jennifer Lawrence. However, the actress has not been the only applicant. Hollywood star Emma Watson wanted the part too!
