Stellan Skarsgård

1. – Liam Neeson, Schindler’s List, 1993. In serious contention before Steven Spielberg voted Neeson. When the big Irishman dropped out of the Exorcist prequel (that became two separate films by different directors), he was replaced (in both!) by   the big Swede.

2. – Peter Stormare, Dancer in the Dark, 2000.   First chosen for Jeff, Bjork’s would-be boyfriend, but was stuck on Aberdeen (and only finally free for a   two scenes   role of her eye doctor.

3. – Jean Reno, Flushed Away, 2006. Reno beat Johnny Depp, Kevin Kline and SkarsgÅ’rd to voicing   Le Frog. Well, Reno is French!
