    I’ll take a guess and say nobody but Barnaby’s best mate was considered as Tim Burton casts Johnny in just about all his movies.

      Well Burton does cast Johnny a lot, but they did consider others before casting the role of Willy Wonka.

    Omg. Nicholas cage!!!! That would have been creeeeeeepy.

    I’m gonna say not Will Smith?

    • iqtrivia says:

      No, Will Smith was considered. For that matter, so was Nicolas Cage.

      • Ally says:

        Then all of them were considered…?

        • iqtrivia says:

          All of them. Even the Rock.

          Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Michael Keaton, Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Mike Myers, Ben Stiller, Leslie Nielsen, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Patrick Stewart, and Adam Sandler were also discussed.

          Some of those I would have liked to have seen. Some of those would have been terrifying.
