Actors pass on roles all the time -- it's part of the movie business. Take Leonardo DiCaprio. His enormous box-office potential makes him one of the most sought-after actors in the world. As such, he's been offered the opportunity to play numerous big-time characters, a few of which he's had to turn down. (Not infamous FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood's 'J.
