WATCH: Check out original actor Chris Farley as Shrek

August 6th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Did you know that Mike Myers wasn’t the original choice for Shrek?

No? Well, not too many do. Originally Chris Farley, star of Tommy Boy, Black Sheep and Saturday Night Live, had the gig before his untimely death.

He even recorded dialogue for the role with Eddie Murphy as Donkey. A new documentary about the late comedian, I Am Chris Farley, is out now and the dialogue is on there.

And we have it here.

What do you think? Would Farley have been a good Shrek?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
