This was Nearly the Cast of ‘The Matrix’

Neo: Will Smith

Morpheus: Val Kilmer

Trinity: Jada Pinkett Smith

That would have made for such a different movie.  Eventually, as we all know, Jada Pinkett Smith was cast as Niobe for the Matrix Sequels and the Enter the Matrix video game.  I wonder what the movies would have been like, though.


  1. hey specter!!!

    i also heard Sean Connery was offered the role of Morpheus, but he turned it down! He then saw the movie do well – and took the role in league of extraordinary gentlemen because he said he didnt want to miss out on a blockbuster again – this was in an interview.

    can you imagine that!! james bond as morpheus! hahaha
