There's no denying that a role in a Star Wars film can be the one thing that makes your career, and over the years we've met many of our favorite actors in the sci-fi series. What you might not realize though, is some big-time actors were nearly cast in the films, so we're here to count down those unknown stars that nearly made the cut.

The late Fast and the Furious star was one of the main contenders for the role of Anakin Skywalker and was pretty catty when he didn't get it. Telling a movie magazine, Walker said he would be unhappy if Hayden Christensen got the role (which he later did) as he was "some no-namer from Canada." Meow!
