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."

Dreams do come true!

Earlier this year James Franco wrote a touching piece about Lana Del Rey for V Magazine.

The 37-year-old's article concluded:

"I wanted to interview Lana for a book and she said, 'Just write around me; it's better if it's not my own words. It's almost better if you don't get me exactly, but try.'"

AH-Mazing!

This development is certainly an improvement in the star's health after he received major injuries from a tragic accident last year. In fact, the 30 Rock actor was confined to a wheelchair for months following the incident and even needed the aid of a cane just earlier this year.
