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."

A common criticism of Saturday Night Live's current season is that it isn't as political as viewers are used to.
That wasn't the case last night though, thanks to Mike Myers returning as Dr. Evil!
The funnyman interrupted a broadcast of Sam Smith's holiday special to tell North Korea and Sony how a real evil genius would do things.

As if there was any doubt!
While Dreamworks has yet to go public with their timetable, the company's CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has just reassured the world that the fiercely funny animated fairy tale will get at least one more sequel!
Sure, it's been four years since Shrek Forever After stormed into theaters, but apparently that's all part of their master plan!
Mr. Katzenberg confessed:
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!
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:
The Django Unchained star—who is also up for Best Male Performance— will receive the Generation Award for his work in many, many AHmazing movies.
And he'll be in great company too!
It's always a pleasure to see Mike Myers acting weird in costume!
This video is no different and we highly recommend you take the 4 minutes and 37 seconds to watch it!

Mike Myers is apparently in talks to bring the whole Austin Powers franchise to broadway!
The first movie debuted in 1997 with the two sequels happening in 1999 and 2002, but an almost decade long gap since the last one isn't stopping Mike's musical dreams.
Myers is currently hard at work on the 4th Austin Powers movie but he's reported to be considering creating the stage adaption.
