1. Tom Hiddleston auditioned to play Thor in the Marvel Universe . . . ended up playing Loki.
2. Sandra Oh auditioned to play Miranda on “Grey’s Anatomy” . . . ended up playing Cristina.
3. Heath Ledger auditioned for Bruce Wayne in “Batman Begins” . . . ended up playing the Joker in “The Dark Knight”.
4. Courteney Cox originally auditioned for Rachel on “Friends” . . . got the role of Monica.
5. Rachel McAdams auditioned for Cady in “Mean Girls” . . . ended up playing Regina.
6. Rainn Wilson auditioned to play Michael on “The Office” . . . but ended up as Dwight.
