    FAMOUS ACTORS CHECKLIST – The Films of MEL GIBSON

    Useless Trivia
    Birth Name - Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson

    Born in Peekskill, New York - His family line goes back several generations in Australia, but his ancestors originally came from Ireland and Scotland.

    Almost turned down the role of William Wallace in Braveheart (1995) because he thought he was too old for the role. He asked the producers if he could direct it instead. A compromise was made, he could direct the movie if he agreed to portray Wallace.

    Has his own private chapel in his grounds, where he attends mass every day.

    Was offered the role of Eliot Ness in The Untouchables (1987), but turned it down.

    He turned down the role of Harvey Dent/Two Face in Batman Forever due to scheduling conflicts with Braveheart.

    Was also considered for the roles of James Bond in GoldenEye (1995), Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman (1989) & Wolverine in X-Men (2000).

    Rank ‘em, rate ‘em, review ‘em or whatever.
