Movie Posters of what could have been

Moviefone redesigned several posters featuring actors that were originally cast or rumored to be attached to the film.
Some aren't too hard to imagine, others just seem ridiculous now.

Tom Hanks in 'Field of Dreams': Not too bad.
John Travolta in 'Benjamin Button': Could be worse.

Pretty sure 'Home Alone' came out before De Niro's switch to comedy, but it would have been interesting.
Eddie Murphy in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'... now it's starting to get a little weird.

What if two actors didn't take part in movies that defined their careers?

Kevin Bacon would still end up broke.
But Matthew Broderick would not have to deal with people asking if it was his 'day off' (1:00) when they saw him in the street.

I can't even imagine how these movies would have turned out:

Viggo Mortensen's humble nature was too perfect as Aragorn.
And I couldn't have said this better myself:
"Can anyone really imagine The Fresh Prince uttering lines like "Whoa, déjà vu" with the same sense of stunned bewilderment?"
