Somehow I can't see John Travolta in that role, it fitted Tom Hanks perfectly....or is it because I've always seen Tom Hanks in that movie?
Some you win??????????
So glad he passed it up!
Glad he passed it up too.
He had the opportunity to be in several movies that he passed on, and only Donnie Brasco seemed like it would have been a good fit. Travolta is a good actor, but nowhere near as talented as Tom Hanks, who aced Forrest Gump. That role was made for him. Hugs...RO
Tom Hanks did a great job, worked out for the best.
I can't even see anyone but hanks in that role..no matter how stupid the movie was.
I try to think what that movie would be like had travolta played that role. I don't think it would be as iconic as it is.
No loss. Tom Hanks was PERFECT!
I can't see it. Tom Hanks was the perfect choice.
Great movie and Tom fitted the role perfectly.Colin
Travolta as Gump? Thank goodness he passed the role up!
Glad he passed up on the role. Tom did a beautiful job with the role.
