Nikita Koloff in Rocky 4

One of the most memorable roles in movie history was almost played by Nikita Koloff. The former NWA star revealed that he was one of the three finalists to play the role of Ivan Drago, the main antagonist to Sylvester Stallone in Rocky 4. He stated that he was flown out to Los Angeles for one final audition. However, studio executives decided that it would be best to go with Dolph Lundgren because he was not as big as Koloff.
