Yesterday’s trivia question was:

So here is the answer:

It was Ricky Gervais and the 2008 movie wasGhost Town“.  And if you haven’t seen it, give it a try.  It was a very sweet movie!

Movie Trivia #2

Ok, people, this one is going to be tough but I found it very interesting.

This actor has stated in interviews that he turned down several film roles before he accepted the lead role in this 2008 film.  Among the films he turned down were the mega-box office hits –  Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

Ouch!  I wonder if he regrets that decision.  Anyway, I am looking for the actor’s name and the name of the 2008 film.

Since this is such a difficult question, I will offer up one hint.  This actor is celebrating his birthday today – June 25th!

If you think you know the answer, leave a comment!  Good luck!!
