In 2005, Brokeback Mountain was released, which immediately became a hit. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger (now deceased) starred and their acting delighted everyone! It is hard to imagine the other main actors in this Ang Lee film right now. However, as it turned out, the cast could be completely different!
Director Gus Van Sant and screenwriter Diana Ossana uncovered the veil of secrecy and talked about which of the world’s stars turned down the roles after reading the script. So, on this list you can see Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Mark Wahlberg, Josh Hartnett and Ryan Phillippe. I wonder how they would have managed to play these roles.
