The Wolf Man (1941)
 Who was considered for The Wolf Man?

Boris Karloff
Universal had originally intended Karloff to star as Larry Talbot, the aristocrat attacked by a wolf when he returns to his family homestead.
Actor who got the part: Lon Chaney Jr.

Bela Lugosi
Upon hearing that this film was in the planning stages at Universal (and that Curt Siodmak was writing a screenplay), he lobbied extensively at the studio to play the part of werewolf Larry Talbot. In the final film, he was relegated to the small role of a gypsy (creatively titled "Bela" by Curt, more than aware of Lugosi's attempts at winning the lead).
Actor who got the part: Lon Chaney Jr.
