For you and I, if we don’t perform our job to the best of our ability, or our employer just doesn’t believe that we are a good fit for our job, then we’re probably in danger of being fired. Yep, fired. Now, celebrities may seem like they live a life of immunity – they’re invincible to any of the bad things that normal people have to face in our everyday lives. Well, that’s not true. Just like any other person who doesn’t do his/her job correctly or to their boss’ liking, celebrities can also be dismissed from their place of employment.
Over the years, you may have seen some pretty iconic roles played by some extraordinary actors. What you may not know, however, is that those same roles were almost portrayed by a different actor. Unfortunately, that same actor didn’t bring the best performance to the role, and they got the axe.
Here are 12 actors who you’ll be surprised to find were fired from these major roles!
1. Charlie Sheen – Two And A Half Men
Two and a Half Men is one of the more popular television programs in recent memory, and one of the most iconic actors that graced the television screens behind it was the infamous playboy Charlie Sheen. His show had one of the highest ratings and everything seemed to go great for the seasoned actor.
But, he was later replaced because of his behavior on and off screen. The show was forced to go on hiatus after Sheen entered rehab and when filming started, he made derogatory remarks about the show’s co-produce Chuck Lorre, unfortunately that was the straw that broke the camel’s back and Charlie Sheen was fired.
