10 Surprising Movie Characters That Could Never Be Replaced With a New Actor

Sometimes a show or movie is different with the actors playing the characters. Would we love their characters as much if they were played by someone else?

See who people claim could never be replaced in their iconic roles with another.

Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter

As a brilliant doctor who murdered, dismembered, and made delicate dishes with his victims, the evil behind the character must have been hard to portray.


Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow

One user commented, “I think without Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean wouldn't have been as popular as it's now. It would just have been another pirate movie.”


Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean

When someone hears Mr. Bean, they immediately think of Rowan Atkinson. Mr. Bean is self-absorbed, immature, and seems not to understand the way the world works.


Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator

In the sequel, director James Cameron turned the character into the hero, and we loved him even more. “He was so believable as a robot that we cried when we saw how he began to “love” John Connor.”


James Earl Jones as (The Voice Of) Darth Vader

While we do not see James Earl Jones, it is no secret he voices Darth Vader. With such an iconic voice, it's no wonder he makes a list, although he never acted in the film.
