Roles that actors REALLY wanted, but didn''t get.

Inspired by the thread "roles that actors turned down".\ \ A few that come to mind:\ \ The insane Courtney Love statement on Letterman that she had/coveted the role in "Moulin Rouge".\ \ Jodie Foster had to really talk her way into getting "Silence of the Lambs". She got it, but the producers were uneasy.\ \ Nicole Kidman was nearly signed to play Katherine Hepburn in "The Aviator" after several auditions, but lost to Cate Blanchett.\ \ Every single young actor in Hollywood sent an audition tape to the casting director of "The Thin Red Line". They are shown in the extras on the Criterion DVD. Its seriously a parade of actors who were in the mix at that time - a great time capsule, definitely worth watching.
