Christina Applegate is often so closely tied to Married with Children that we often forget that she’s had a pretty successful movie career, as well. Aside from a couple of sitcoms that didn’t pan out (Up All Night, Samantha Who?, Jesse), Applegate had iconic roles (to some of us, anyway) in Anchorman and Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, as well as some not-so iconic roles in major box-office disappointments like The Rocker, Hall Pass, and Surviving Christmas.

She’s long been considered a comedic actress — in fact, she’s starring in the Vacation reboot, out this week — but she clearly sought more dramatic roles throughout her career. You’d probably be very surprised about the 10 roles below that she was passed on or was under consideration for.
