Most movies go through rounds of casting where actors commit and then have to step away or deals never materialize, even Academy Award-nominated films.
This year's contenders especially seemed to go through several different versions of their cast before finding the group of actors that would eventually lead them to Oscar night.

Check out a few after the jump and more over at Next Movie!
