John Wayne – Temujin / Genghis Khan (The Conqueror)
Who better to play the role of Genghis Khan, the founder of the Mongol Empire than John Wayne, born in Winterset, Iowa.
This is probably one of the most embarrassing casting decisions in Hollywood history. Who really thought that it would be a good idea to have an American play the founder of the Mongol Empire. Whoever it was, I hope they lose their job.
