Buddy Ebsen -
The actor was originally cast as the Tin Man in 'The Wizard of Oz' (1939)
The cast of 'The Conqueror' (1956) - 'The Conqueror' (1956) was shot near a nuclear weapons testing site. You can imagine what happened in the next few years...
Jonah Hill -
Coke consumption was abundant in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' (2013), so the actor had to snort vitamin powder in many scenes.
