Sounder (1972)
 Who was considered for Sounder?

Cicely Tyson
Tyson agreed to test for the schoolteacher role, but she did so hoping that director Martin Ritt and the film's producers would see that she was instead right to play Rebecca--and they did. Tyson was at first considered too young for the character, but her performance earned an Oscar nomination.
Actor who got the part: Janet MacLachlan
