Chris Farley's last official movie credit is 1998's Western comedy Almost Heroes with Matthew Perry. But the late comedy legend was working on another role at the time of his death, which would be one of the most recognizable animated characters of all time.

The Saturday Night Live alum was originally cast as everyone's favorite green ogre in the 2001 animated film Shrek before he died of a drug overdose in 1997.

But the funny man's version of the titular character would have been very different than the one we're familiar with! Kevin Farley, who is executive producer of the new documentary I am Chris Farley, said:

"Originally the Shrek character was a little bit more like Chris, like a humble, bumbling innocent guy."

The lead role of the DreamWorks fairytale comedy ultimately went to Farley's SNL co-star Mike Myers, who gave the ogre a Scottish accent and a bigger attitude. But the Farley family isn't bitter that the studio recast the role. Kevin explains:

"I understand why [they replaced him]. The studio needed to do what they needed to do. It was a bad time, bad timing… a tragedy. Mike did a great job with Shrek. He knocked it out of the park."

Wayne's World Cast Reunites After 20 Years!! No More Mike Myers-Dana Carvey Feud?!

waynes world reunion

Everyone loves cast reunions. Especially ones that happen 20 years after the fact.

The cast of Wayne’s World reunited in Beverly Hills yesterday for an event hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in honor of the HIGHlarious 1992 film!

Mike Myers, Lorne Michaels, Rob Lowe, Lara Flynn Boyle, Dana Carvey and Penelope Spheeris all turned up for the big event!

This was perhaps a bit surprising given that Mike, Dana, and Penelope had fallen out following filming. Apparently, Mike had not only been difficult on set, but was rumored to have taken his Dr. Evil voice from one of Dana’s impressions. Meanwhile, Penelope had been upset that Mike had reportedly prevented her from directing the Wayne’s World sequel. Jeeeeez.

What’s more, Mike admitted:
