17 of 26: John Travolta turned down two major movie roles. One was the lead role in 'Forrest Gump,' which was later played by Tom Hanks (Bill Murray and Chevy Chase also turned down the part). The other role Travolta turned away was James Bond in 'Casino Royale,' which was fulfilled by Daniel Craig. Travolta should play roles where he can bust out some awesome dance moves, anyway.
