Trivia that mentions this person:
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest [2006]
  • For a dose of authenticity in the final twist at the end of the film, the actors were not told, prior to filming, that Geoffrey Rush would be appearing in the movie. They were told, before the scene was shot, that the person coming down the stairs would be Anamaria (Zoe Saldana) from The Curse of the Black Pearl; the looks of surprise on their faces as Rush descends are genuine.
    Green Lantern [2011]
  • Hugo Weaving, Jackie Earle Haley and Geoffrey Rush were considered to for the role of Sinestro. Rush went on to voice the Green Lantern Tomar-Re.
    Finding Nemo [2003]
  • In order for it to sound like Nigel had Marlin and Dory in his mouth, Geoffrey Rush held onto his tongue as he said his lines.
    Into the Woods [2014]
  • In earlier drafts, the essential Narrator character from the original stage musical was still part of the story. Before the role was written out of the script, many actors were either considered, in talks, or asked to play the role including Jeremy Irons, Christopher Plummer, Geoffrey Rush, James Earl Jones, John Cleese, Michael Caine, Michael Gambon, and Alan Rickman. There were even rumors about giving this role to a female such as Julie Andrews or Angela Lansbury who are both Disney favorites as well as experts on Stephen Sondheim's material.
    Mr. Peabody & Sherman [2014]
  • Robert Downey Jr., Kelsey Grammer, and Geoffrey Rush were considered for the role of Mr. Peabody. Downey was cast, but had to back out, due to scheduling conflicts.
