Have you ever wondered what your favorite TV shows and movies would be like if other stars had been cast in the roles? It might be tough to imagine, but former Disney Channel stars like Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale came pretty close to landing major roles that we would never pictured them playing (think Pretty Little Liars).

Yep, that's right. It's pretty crazy to think just how different certain stars' careers would be if that had accepted a role that they ended up turning down. In most cases, it would mean that they wouldn't then go on to pursue the project that they're know known for. Who knows what Joe Jonas life would be like if he had snagged the role of Justin Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place? Not only would his life be totes different, but so would David Henrie's!

Whether it was for the better or not, so many other stars like Bridgit Mendler and more have missed out on huge roles for one reason or another.
