A Look At The ‘Roger Rabbit’ Voiced By Pee-Wee Herman You Didn’t Know Existed (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Early Who Framed Roger Rabbit Image

As you know, a lot goes into making a movie. Many of them are developed for many years, seeing various writers and directors and other talent come and go as the best strategy for making the movie is figured out.

1988′s Who Framed Roger Rabbit was no different. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring the late Bob Hoskins, the movie would go on to become an unforgettable fusion of live-action film noir and cartoon comedy. But Disney was trying to make the movie happen years before that destiny was realized. They acquired the rights to the Gary K. Wolf novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? not long after its publication in 1981, and at one point in 1983 had an adaptation in the works with Paul Reubens as Roger Rabbit (around the time he was becoming known as Pee-Wee Herman).

Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt as Star Lord

Who would have thought back in his pre six-pack-abs days as the lovable slacker Andy Dwyer on NBC’s Parks and Recreation that the Minnesota native would be the next big action hero? But thanks to his recent turn as Star-Lord in Marvel’s summer tentpole Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt has been elevated to a whole new level of geekdom and fandom.

It’s easy to compare Pratt’s portrayal of Star-Lord to Harrison Ford’s beloved Star Wars character Han Solo, but deviantART user rahzzah did a pretty impressive photoshop job turning Pratt into another one of Ford’s iconic characters, Indiana Jones.

Check out the image here below and get ready to believe.
