Bono (Paul David Hewson)

1. - Val Kilmer, The Doors, 1991.  During the 20-year convoluted struggle to put Jim Morrison's short, empty life on film, Charlie Sheen contacted Jerry Hopkins, co-writer of the leading source book, No One Gets  Out of Here Alive, to set up a movie starring the Irish U2 rocker.  Seven producers and $2m of development  hell later, Oliver Stone selected Kilmer after seeing Willow, 1989.  Production was then delayed by the director's (thankfully thwarted) efforts to  make Evita.

2. - Dolph Lundgren, Johnny Mnemonic, 1994.  A year earlier when Johnny was to be Christophe(r) Lambert, Bono was talking about supervising the soundtrack - and playing a role.

3. - Glenn Plummer, Strange Days, 1995.  He passed on the futuristic singer and politico.  Too close to home.

4. - Eric Stolz, Rob Roy, 1995.  An early suggestion as Alan MacDonald.
