Aiken, best known for Stepmom, was actually given the prize role as Harry (pictured here in 2001, the year Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was released), but he lost the part a day later. The problem: he wasn't British, and producers wanted a Brit to play the young wizard. Though I love Radcliffe, doesn't young Aiken kind of look like the book illustrations of Harry?
