10 Roles That Would Have Been Disasters Without Casting Miracles

What actor or actress was the most perfectly cast role in film or television? There is no contesting that some people were destined for the superstar role they played.

For example, Al Pacino as Michael Corleone fits the bill. Here are the top ten voted responses after someone polled Reddit.

“Agreed,” one user expressed, “There have been several Peter Parkers, a few Aunt Mays, a couple of Uncle Bens, and even two pairs of the Osbornes. But there is still only one JJJ.”

Christoph Waltz as Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds

One person said, “Christoph Waltz as Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds. It needed someone fluent in four languages and could fill a brilliant and evil role. That movie would not be the same without him.”

“Whoever plays Homelander. That guy is so great as a villain. He makes me so nervous anytime he's on-screen with a character I like,” one user confessed.

“That whole trilogy was perfectly cast—every role. Even Liv Tyler, who I hate in everything because of her overly breathy and campy theater style in every movie she's ever been in, works in that movie,” said one person.

Many people shared their favorite Ron Swanson quotes like, “I worry what you just heard was, give me a lot of bacon and eggs. Just bring me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait. What I said was: give me all the bacon and eggs you have.”
