The Cary Grant role in Hitchcocks Notorious (Forget it was 1946!).
The Max Von Sydow role in his pal Spielbergs Minority Report, or come to think of it the Robert Shaw role in Jaws.
DEFINATELY Se7en.
Replace Paul Newman in Road To Perdition ?
Simba in Lion King...I think I'm losing it now !

Couple of Lee Marvin movies comes to my mind.Michael Ritchie`s Prime Cut and John Boorman`s Point Blank.Lee Marvin was great in those pictures but I also think that Clint would have been great as well.
Maybe Winner`s Death Wish would have been even better with Clint in it.

I think Eastwood would've been good playing the part of John Rooney, the mob boss in Sam Mendes' Road to Perdition. I could easily picture him playing the aging, troubled boss.

I heard somewhere that he was offered to play the role of Eddie Cusack in Chuck Norris's best film CODE OF SILENCE.  I can sort of picture him in it since it's just a regular cop thriller, but it's good Norris did it because at least now he has a film that is not considered total crap by most critics and movie fans.

How about the first Death Wish with Charles Bronson?  With Clint taking over the Charles Bronson role, of course! ;D ;D

I would have LLLOOOOVVVVVEDDD to see clint as :

Sergeant Steiner (Coburns role) in The iron cross.

Sergeant Horwath (tom Sizemore) in Saving private Ryan (yep, i know he´s to old, but still...)

The longest day (any american role)

T1000 (robert patrick) in T2 (THATS IT!!! NO MORE COFFE FOR ME) with alternate ending where T1000 wins  ;D ;D

And lastly (but not least) yul brynners role in seven men conquers (even though i cant see what he would use the other six guys for  ;D)

It's interesting that you say that Ajay, because as I understand it, 'Bullit' (which Steve McQueen had a lot of creative control on) was the film that set the trend which resulted in 'Dirty Harry'.  In a way, Clint owes a LOT to Steve McQueen for his first  really big  success in  American films.

  Uh-oh.  :)  I'll go along with that to an extent because I really like McQueen and he did pave the way for the 70s action genre as a whole, which probably did help Clint.
  But man I don't know about Clint "[owing] a LOT to Steve McQueen". :)

HI All;
              IT WAS INTERESTING SEEING THE JONAH HEX CARTOON IN MOVIES CLINT SHOULD HAVE DONE. I HAVE JUST ABOUT EVERY COMIC OF JONAH HEX AND THERE WAS SOME TALK 25 YEARS AGO OF THAT COMIC COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN FROM DC COMICS. IT IS A SHAME IT NEVER BECAME A FACT BECAUSE IT WAS A BRILLIANT COMIC OF A MAN WHO WAS A BOUNTY HUNTER AND WITH A DEEP STORY OF HIS PAST. FROM A PERSONAL MOVIE I WOULD HAVE LOVED CLINT TO HAVE DONE WAS A MOVIE CALLED 'THIEF' THAT JAMES CAAN DID IN 1982. CONSIDERING CLINT IS MORE INTO CHARACTER STUDY I THINK THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT ROLE FOR HIM AND I HOPE HE FINDS A FILM LIKE THAT TO FINISH HIS LAST ROLE AS A ACTOR WITH. THAT LAST SCENE OF CAAN WALKING DOWN THE DARK STREET AFTER PUTTING AWAY ROBERT PROSKY'S HENCHMEN WAS SOMETHING I WISH CLINT WAS DOING BACK THEN INSTEAD OF THOSE MONKEY MOVIES.

I have always thought that if schedules had been permitting that Clint would have been Charley Varrick. I watched the film again recently and although Walter Matthau was very good, I could see Clint pulling off that role.

On the + side it would have been another Clintus/Siegelini (prob spelt wrong) picture. It would also have had Clint Eastwood and Andy Robinson on the same side !!! (well kind of)


Either way it is still a fine film.

ITS TIME FOR THE BDC man to stretch a persons imagination.

What would have been an awesome role for Clint? Easy......

The name is Bond....James Bond.

I´D LOVE A JONAH HEX MOVIE TOO!!!
After all some of the stories and elemennts are pure eastwood rip offs. As long as we go for the classical jonah hex stories (maybe even the ones where he was married to mai ling) but that dreadfull HEX future storyline and that new occult tvist they gave the hex character just have to go!!!
