Ugandan dictator Idi Amin’s official title was “His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.”

Al Pacino was offered the role of Han Solo, but turned it down because he “didn’t understand the script.” He also turned down lead roles in Die Hard, Pretty Woman, Beverly Hills Cop and Apocalypse Now.
