A marble slab in storage turned out to be an ancient Greek yearbook
Researchers in the United Kingdom have found that an ancient Greek inscription on a 2,000-year-old marble tablet is actually something resembling a yearbook for a graduating class, according to a new translation. The inscription sat in the National Museums Scotland collection for over 130 years without being properly looked at until researchers discovered the document, and was recently translated by the organization Attic Inscriptions Online. 31 names, some of them are nicknames, indicate a sense of camaraderies for part of a class of men that finished their year long military and civic training under the Roman emperor Claudius who ruled between A.D. 41-54.

Shocking Reasons Actors Got Rejected for Roles

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  A list of shocking reasons actors were rejected for a role includes Andrew Garfield not being handsome enough to play Prince Caspian in the “Narnia” movies, and Robert Redford being TOO handsome to star in “The Graduate”.

 

 

FULL STORY:  Actors get rejected for roles all the time, obviously.  But sometimes the reasons are odd, unexpected, and even shocking.  Here are some examples:

 

 

  1. Andrew Garfieldwanted to be Prince Caspian in the “Chronicles of Narnia” movies, but he was told he wasn’t handsome enough.

 

 

  1. Brenda Songclaims she wasn’t allowed to audition for “Crazy Rich Asians” because her “image” wasn’t Asian enough.  The director denies it, though.

 

 

  1. Robert Redfordgot turned down for “The Graduate”, because he was too handsome to play a “loser”.  The much uglier Dustin Hoffman ended up with the part.

 

 

  1. Robin Williamswanted to play Hagrid . . . then later Remus Lupin . . . in the “Harry Potter” movies.  But he was denied both times because they were only hiring Brits.

 

 

  1. Zoe Kravitztried out for “The Dark Knight Rises”, but was told she was “too urban.”

 

 

  1. Tom Hollandauditioned for Finn in the latest “Star Wars” trilogy, but he couldn’t stop laughing during the audition.

 

 

  1. Chris Kleinbombed his audition for “Mamma Mia!” because he couldn’t sing.  That’s right, he auditioned for a singing part without being able to sing.

 

 

(Chris’s audition tape leaked, and became LEGENDARY.  It really is bad, and he freely admits it.)

 

 

  1. Harry Stylesreally wanted to star in that new “Elvis” movie, but he was too . . . Harry Styles.  Director Baz Luhrmann late explained, quote, “The real issue with Harry is he’s Harry Styles.  He’s already an icon.”
