Can You Hear Me Now?
As "Scream 4" is about to open, publicity is cranking up for the movie, which has prompted a lot of discussion about the iconic horror franchise. And as it turns out, Neve Campbell was not the first actor offered the role of Sidney Prescott.

Reese Witherspoon and Brittany Murphy were also considered for Sidney, but it was ultimately Neve Campbell who landed the famous role.
