Actors and actress that were were the wrong choice(s) This covers all of the genres of films.

The new Batman v Superman isn't out yet, is it too early to nominate Ben Affleck?

Telford, I'd agree with you about 99.9% of the way thinking of stuff like Dracula and well, almost everything. However, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure was great. I think in this case Keanu Reeves was placed perfectly. Perhaps because he didn't have to act so much as be himself?

Kevin Costner is a very good actor and director but I think he was definitely not the right choice for the role of Robin Hood.

Carey Elwes was an *awesome* Robin Hood! Totally agree about Hayden Christensen (sp as per IMDB). And I'd like to nominate Helen Mirren in RED.

Jude Law in Alfie. Now, Jude is a decent enough actor, especially if what you're after is cold and/or slightly unlikeable (The Talented Mr Ripley, Gattaca). That's not what Alfie is. Well, not if you want your ill-conceived remake to work at all, anyway.

In your bedroom wardrobe...
Following on from another thread I just remembered: Luke Pasqualino as Admiral Adama in Blood and Chrome. Nico Cortez was an uncanny match for Adama in the Razor special, so it's beyond me why they recast this brown-eyed pretty boy.

Stallone wasn't badly cast as he had the jaw for the part. It was the removal of the helmet and the decision to lean into comic relief that pulled the movie down. (that said, it's a guilty pleasure and i have a little soft spot for it. :) )
