Top 10 Movie Recasts You Don’t Know

What if your favorite character had been portrayed by a completely different actor than the one you’re familiar with? Would you still feel the same way about the movie? Most movie productions go through a long casting process before they’re able to find the right person for the lead. In some cases, recasts take place just before, or sometimes during filming. Whether because of differences of opinion with the director, poor acting skills, or prior obligations, some actors just don’t work out. These are ten of the most surprising could-have-been stars of popular movies that you might not know about.
10. Lance Henriksen as The Terminator


Lance Henriksen

When James Cameron first wrote the script, he wanted a regular looking guy who didn’t stand out in a crowd. Henriksen, who was a long time friend of Cameron’s, was his first choice. When Schwarzenegger came in to read for the role of Kyle Reese, it was decided that he would be better suited in the lead role. Henriksen would eventually be cast as Detective Vukovich, a relatively small role. Afterwards he would also star in Cameron’s Aliens in the role of Bishop. O.J. Simpson had also been considered as the Terminator but Cameron felt he was “too nice” to play a killing machine.

9. Dougray Scott as Wolverine
X-Men


Dougray Scott 07

Little known Scottish actor, Dougray Scott, had originally been cast in the role of Wolverine. Unfortunately for Scott, the filming of Mission Impossible 2 had been delayed for several weeks and caused him to miss out on the role of a life time. Director Bryan Singer had to make a last minute recast and chose, then unknown, Hugh Jackman; who has since reprised the role 3 more times with plans for yet another sequel. Jackman has gone on to have a highly successful career. Dougray Scott, on the other hand, went on to play some guy on Desperate Housewives.

8. Sylvester Stallone as Axel Foley
Beverly Hills Cop


Sylvestor-Stallone3

Jerry Bruckheimer originally wanted Mickey Rourke in the lead role, but when he pulled out, it was offered to Stallone. Stallone personally rewrote the script. He removed all the elements of humor and had plans on turning the film into an action packed blockbuster. Due to budgetary constraints, Stallone and the producers went their separate ways. Stallone took his ideas from his rewrite and made the film Cobra. After Eddie Murphy was cast, script rewrites were made to repair the damage done by Stallone. In Beverly Hills Cop 2, there is a brief scene in which Axel Foley is looking at a poster from Cobra while talking on the phone.

7. Leonardo DiCaprio as Patrick Bateman
American Psycho


Leonardo-Dicaprio

From the start, director Mary Harron had wanted Christian Bale to star, but when the production company offered the role to DiCaprio, she backed out. Oliver Stone was hired on to direct, with DiCaprio starring as Patrick Bateman. However, before filming started, several women’s rights activists, including Gloria Steinem, protested the film being made due to what they felt was misogynistic content, and how it would affect DiCaprio’s young female fanbase. DiCaprio left the project due to several issues with the script, Stone followed shortly after. Mary Harron and Bale returned. Coincidentally, Gloria Steinem married Christian Bale’s father, John, shortly afterwards.

6. Jean-Claude Van Damme as Predator


Jean-Claude+Van+Damme+3Z

Producers cast van Damme as the title role in the hopes that his martial arts abilities would make the predator seem agile, despite the costume; which, at the time, was a completely different design from the one seen in the movie. Van Damme found the suit uncomfortable and clumsy, about which he was quite vocal on set. He quit after two days of filming, allegedly because he was upset about playing an “uncredited special effect”. A new, more agile costume design and 7’2″ actor Kevin Peter Hall made for a much more imposing villain.



5. Stuart Townsend as Aragorn
the Lord of the Rings trilogy


Townsend1

Irish actor Stuart Townsend spent two months rehearsing and training for the role of Aragorn, only to be fired the day before filming began. At the last minute, Peter Jackson decided that he needed someone older than Townsend, who was only 29 at the time. There were also rumors that the two did not get along well on set. Viggo Mortensen, who was 14 years older than Townsend, accepted the role after being convinced by his son, who was a fan of the novels. Townsend never received compensation for his time on set, yet he was apparently happy to be moving on.

4. Chris Farley as Shrek


Chris-Farley

Chris Farley was originally signed on to voice the ogre, Shrek, and had recorded the majority of the dialogue for it. Tragically, Farley died from a heart attack, induced by a drug overdose, before he could finish. The script that Farley read from was vastly different from the version completed with Mike Myers. Originally, Shrek was written as a kind hearted, teenaged ogre who wanted to become a knight. After Farley’s death, Dreamwork’s decided to start fresh. As a tribute, Shrek is seen using finger quotes throughout the movie in reference to one of Farley’s famous SNL characters.

3. Harvey Keitel as Willard
Apocalypse Now


Harvey-Keitel-Photograph-C11796940

Francis Ford Coppola’s epic film was plagued with problems from the start: Sets were destroyed by typhoons, Marlon Brando was uncooperative and overweight, and he was forced to settle on Harvey Keitel in the lead. Steve McQueen, Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino had all turned down the role. After a few days of shooting, Coppola reviewed some of his footage and decided that Keitel was not well suited for the role. Martin Sheen, who had impressed Coppola when he had read for the part of Michael Corleone in the Godfather, stepped in as Keitel’s replacement. A few months into shooting Sheen had a heart attack, delaying the film, yet again. What was to be a 5 month shoot ended up taking over a year to complete.

2. Tom Selleck as Indiana Jones


Tom-Selleck

Little known actor Tom Selleck auditioned for Indiana Jones as well as Magnum P.I. in the same year, and was cast in both roles. Unfortunately for Selleck, he had signed the contract for Magnum P.I. first and CBS wouldn’t let him out of it. Selleck had no choice but to turn down what could have been the biggest role of his career. Spielberg convinced Lucas to give Harrison Ford the part. Ford went on to become one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, while Selleck is now starring in a series of TV movies. As it turned out, shooting for Magnum P.I. was delayed until after Raiders had commenced, which would have given Selleck time to do both.

1. Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly
Back to the Future


Eric-Stoltz-Picture

Robert Zemeckis’s first choice for the part of Marty McFly, Michael J. Fox, was unavailable due to his contract with Family Ties. Zemeckis then settled on Eric Stoltz and began filming. According to some rumours, the entire film was shot before the casting change was made. Stoltz’s portrayal of McFly came off as “humorless and dramatic”, which wasn’t what producers had in mind. Zemeckis decided the film wasn’t going to turn out the way he had intended and, despite costing an extra three million dollars, he decided to sack Stoltz and start from scratch. Fortunately for Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox had since become available, and the Marty McFly we know and love was born.

Top 10 Oddest Villains from Scooby Doo

We all remember Scooby Doo: the cartoonish jokes, the predictable plotlines, the laughable characters. But what the majority of people remember the most are the strange ‘monsters’ that seem to plague the Mystery, Inc. gang. Here I have compiled, in no particular order, some of the oddest villains from Scooby Doo. Please note that I am not including any ‘real monsters’ like the ones from the newer movies. Up front I must apologize for the quality of some images – unfortunately there isn’t a great archive of Scooby monsters around.
10. The Tar Monster



First appeared in The Tar Monster, 1978

I know that the Tar Monster appeared several times, but what the heck! He’s a monster made out of tar! The villain behind him in the original series was Mr. Stoner, who was trying to scare away the archaeologists from the Sanctum of Byzantium so that he could steal the temple’s ancient treasure.

9. The Pterodactyl Ghost


Pterodactylghost

First appeared in Hang in There Scooby Doo, 1977

This is another one of those monsters that makes you think, ‘wow, those Hanna-Barbera guys really ran out of ideas’. This guy was actually Jonathan Jacobo, who was terrorizing a local hang-gliding contest so that he could win with no competition. This is another one of the monsters that appeared in Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed.

8. The Ghost Animals of Africa


Screen Shot 2010-06-02 At 8.39.59 Am

First appeared in Safari, So Goodi!, 2002

This is a fairly strange scheme, so I thought I’d include it. The Hunsecker couple were trying to kidnap various African animals to sell as exotic pets back home. They did this by painting the wildlife in fluorescent paint, and then emitting a supersonic pitch from their boat. This made the animals go crazy, so everyone thought they were demons. However, they underestimated Shaggy’s love for Scooby when they kidnapped him, too!

7. The Wax Phantom


Wax

First appeared in Don’t Fool with a Phantom, 1970

I find this one to be fairly cool just because it looks so awesome. The Wax Phantom was the owner of a radio station who wanted to get away with embezzling a lot of money from his station by blaming it all on the crazy butler. However, the Gang manages to catch up to him and captures him with a wax shower. I find that interesting because they also got Scooby and Shaggy in the wax shower, which would have killed them instantly.

6. “It”



First appeared in Spooky Space Kook, 1969

Here’s another one that I picked just for looks. “It” was the creation of a farmer who wanted the military to move off his land. The looks and artsy flair that they added to “It” and his spaceship make this villain way cool. It was also interesting as the show started to probe into a dangerous area for TV of that time: the military being not-so-nice.



5. Ghost Clown



First appeared in Bedlam in the Big Top, 1969

Here’s one that I picked just because it was so creepy. I, personally, am very afraid of both clowns and hypnotists, so a hypnotist clown ghost is incredibly frightening. The culprit in this episode was the recently fired circus hypnotist, who creeps me out even when he’s out of costume.

4. The Ghost of Zen-Tuo


Zentuo

First appeared in Mystery Mask Mix-up, 1970

I thought I’d put this one up here just because it wowed me with its incredible racism. No Chinese voice-actors were used for this episode, so the American actors had to improvise with garish fake accents. Throughout the episode racial slurs are made, and the villains act very, very stupid. So that’s bad, and there are also a lot of animating goofs in this episode.

3. The Mystery Machine



First appeared in It’s Mean, It’s Green, It’s the Mystery Machine, 2002

This one was odd in a few ways. For one, the monster was actually THE MYSTERY MACHINE. For another, we get to hear a lot about the back-story of the Mystery Machine and Freddy. The villain here is a crazed soccer-mom bent on getting her kid’s band back together.

2. The Titanic Twist


Titanictwist

First appeared in Wrestle Maniacs, 2005

Here’s another weird one. Almost breaking the limits of violence and creepiness for Scooby-Doo, The Titanic Twist was a wrestling ghost who would go around beating people for no apparent reason. There was actually blood in this episode, and the portrayal of wrestling culture was more than a little creepy.

1. The Gold Monster



First appeared in Gold Paw, 2005

Okay, a monster made out of GOLD? How cool is that? And in addition to being made out of gold, he can melt through walls and turn other things into gold. A pretty epic monster, made even more epic when it’s actually a robot made out of cookie dough engineered by an old lady to break into Fort Knox. Tell me that’s not cool.

Terror Hysteria, October Surprise Terror





Terror HysteriaOctober Surprise Terror Theory – There are a lot of searches that matches the word October Surprise Terror and of course Terror Hysteria. We are nearing the November Election and the Terror Hysteria is sloughing by. There are a lot of Airport lobbies that are getting terror attacks in connection with the 2007 incident in which two mental deficients set fire to a jeep outside Glasgow airport. This caused a wave of hysteria that people were really surprised with.

The announcement has been given the full court press by the establishment media, and all airports are being put on alert to look out for suspicious activity. 

This has led some to speculate that the entire thing has been cooked up by the powers that be to draw more attention to national security and terrorism in time for the upcoming election season. We have seen it done before, but it does seem to be a bit weird that this would pop up in time for the election.

The targets that have been announced include at least five major European airports as well as a number of other locations that have been designated by those in charge. When talking about the possible attacks the media constantly references the attacks in Mumbai, transport hubs, and airport lobbies. 

Alex Jones and Prison Planet’s Paul Joseph Watson brought this theory to light this week.
It will be interesting to see how politicians use the news to their advantage in the upcoming election. It has been common practice for politicians to use national security concerns to their advantage during election seasons, and this one will be no different.

6 Hal Yang Susah Diungkapkan Pria Kepada Wanita

Pria cenderung memiliki sikap lebih terbuka dibandingkan wanita. Tetapi ada situasi di mana pria merasa sulit mengungkapkan perasaannya.
http://journal.suteki.nu/wp-content/uploads/2006/10/bokurac.jpg
Ketahui enam hal yang sulit diungkapkan pria ketika berada dalam situasi tertentu.


1. 'Aku sayang kamu'
Terdengar klise, tetapi sebagian besar pria akan merasa tidak tenang dan merasa sulit untuk mengungkapkan kalimat itu. Menjelang mengucap kalimat itu, jantung biasanya berdegup kencang disertai tangan berkeringat. Pria akan merasa takut ditolak. Jadi, jangan heran jika melihat seorang pria mukanya terlihat merah saat mengungkapkan perasaan cinta pada wanita incarannya.

2. 'Hubungan ini tidak berjalan lancar'
Pria biasanya akan menghindar ketika pasangannya mulai membahas kelanjutan hubungan, terutama ketika hubungan sudah tidak berjalan dengan baik. Pria juga tidak suka melihat wanita menangis di depannya karena tidak ingin menjadi pihak yang berdosa. Untuk menghindari ini, mereka biasanya memilih bersikap menyebalkan, dan menunggu hingga pasangannya memutuskan hubungan.

3. 'Pakaian itu tidak bagus untuk kamu'
Pria akan sulit sekali berkata jujur jika ditanya soal penampilan wanita. Jika seorang wanita meminta pendapat soal penampilan, pria pasti akan sulit berkata 'pakaian itu tidak bagus untuk kamu'. Pria akan lebih 'mencari aman' dengan mengatakan 'lumayan' atau 'bagus kok'.

4. 'Aku butuh ruang'
Ada kalanya seseorang membutuhkan waktu untuk diri sendiri. Bagi pria, jika ia ingin menghabiskan waktu sendiri tanpa pasangan, butuh keberanian besar untuk mengungkapkannya. Mereka tidak ingin menyakiti pasangannya saat ingin menyendiri untuk sementara waktu. Jika pria tidak pernah mengungkapkan hal ini, bisa jadi ia melakukan trik tertentu misalnya dengan alasan lembur atau ada pekerjaan di luar kota.

5. 'Aku tidak suka berkumpul dengan teman-temanmu'
Sebagian besar pria tidak suka berkumpul dengan teman-teman wanita pasangannya. Jika memang 'dipaksa' bertemu, mereka akan lebih banyak bersikap diam dan terlihat kikuk. Suasana tersebut memang tidak nyaman bagi pria. Bukan karena dia tidak menyukai teman-teman Anda, tetapi karena obrolan pasti akan kurang nyambung.

6. 'Iya, kamu benar'
Ego pria yang begitu besar akan turun jika ia mengakui kalau opini Anda yang benar. Ketika beradu argumen dan fakta menunjukkan Anda benar dan dia salah, ia akan sulit untuk mengakuinya. Dalam situasi tersebut kebanyakan pria akan memilih diam.

6 Fakta Menarik Tentang Nasi Yang Dianggap Mitos

1. Nasi membantu mendongkrak mood.
Karbo mendukung produksi serotonin, senyawa kimia dalam otak yang menimbulkan perasaan senang. Studi dari Archives of Internal Medicine menunjukkan, orang yang menjalani diet rendah karbo yang berat selama setahun (hanya mengonsumsi sekitar 1/2 cangkir nasi atau selembar roti), cenderung mengalami depresi, kegelisahan, dan mudah marah. Kadarnya jauh melebihi orang yang mengonsumsi diet rendah lemak-tinggi Nasi, yang hanya makan produk olahan susu rendah lemak, gandum utuh, buah-buahan, dan kacang-kacangan.


2. Nasi membantu mencegah berat badan naik.
Bahkan, membantu menurunkan berat badan. Bagaimana mungkin? Yang pasti, peneliti dari Brigham Young University di Utah, AS, mendapati bahwa mereka yang meningkatkan asupan seratnya secara umum akan kehilangan berat badan. Hal ini terjadi pada perempuan paruh baya yang dimonitor pola makannya selama dua tahun. Sebaliknya, perempuan yang mengurangi asupan serat dari makanannya justru berat badannya naik.


3. Nasi baik untuk jantung.
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_yYRv35CqMfI/TEmjNfi7ZXI/AAAAAAAAAFg/I1wHTOPNbhk/s1600/jantung.jpg
Dengan meningkatkan asupan serat yang mudah larut (yang bisa ditemukan dalam makanan tinggi Karbohidrat seperti oatmeal dan kacang polong) sebanyak 5-10 gr sehari, Anda akan menurunkan kadar kolesterol jahat hingga 5 persen. Mereka yang mengonsumsi gandum utuh (seperti beras merah) juga cenderung memiliki kadar kolesterol jahat yang lebih rendah, dan kolesterol baik yang lebih tinggi.


4. Nasi membantu merampingkan lingkar pinggang.
http://media.tanyadokteranda.com/images//2010/08/metabolic-syndrome-af.jpg
Mengonsumsi gandum utuh membantu mengurangi lemak tubuh dan lemak perut, demikian menurut penelitian baru yang dimuat di Journal of Nutrition. Dalam studi tersebut dikatakan bahwa orang dewasa yang makan sekitar tiga porsi gandum utuh sehari, memiliki lemak tubuh 2,4 persen lebih sedikit, dan lemak perut 3,6 persen lebih sedikit, daripada mereka yang makan kurang dari seperempat porsi.


5. Nasi membantu menajamkan memori.
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_fhyy4dWytvk/S7LwFu5U_TI/AAAAAAAAAK0/e4fYkSJxbXI/s1600/otak+4.gif
Perempuan overweight yang menjalani diet rendah karbo selama seminggu (benar-benar tidak mengonsumsi Nasi) ternyata mendapatkan nilai yang lebih buruk dalam tes memori (seperti: mengapa tadi saya masuk ke ruangan ini?). Nilai mereka juga berkurang dalam visuospatial memory (tes mengingat lokasi dalam peta) daripada mereka yang mengikuti diet rendah kalori. Inilah merupakan petunjuk American Dietetic Association, yang terungkap dalam sebuah studi dari Tufts University.


6. Nasi membantu memecah lemak.
Sarapan dengan Nasi yang sifatnya tidak menaikkan gula darah dengan cepat, seperti oatmeal atau sereal bekatul, 3 jam sebelum latihan, akan membantu Anda membakar lemak lebih banyak, demikian menurut sebuah studi dari Journal of Nutrition. Kedua jenis makanan tersebut, seperti juga kentang dengan kulitnya, roti gandum, pasta dari gandum, atau kacang polong, tidak menyebabkan gula darah melonjak secepat bila Anda mengonsumsi roti tawar putih atau nasi putih. Sebaliknya, tingkat insulin tidak meningkat cepat, dan karena insulin berperan memberi tanda bahwa tubuh menyimpan lemak, memastikan tingkat insulin yang lebih rendah akan membantu Anda membakar lemak.

Hasil Edit Foto Selebriti Yang Terlihat Aneh

Kehadiran tekhnologi manipulasi foto memang memberikan keuntungan, dan juga banyak kebohongan. Jika biasanya foto artis dimanipulasi oleh oknum tak bertanggung jawab dengan tujuan mencemarkan nama baik si korban, kali ini kita akan mengungkap foto-foto artis yang memang sengaja di edit dengan sepengetahuan mereka untuk produk atau keperluan resmi. Dan entah mengapa, beberapa detail kadang malah terlihat lucu, bahkan mengerikan.

Baiklah, kita urutkan 5 Foto Selebriti korban photoshop yang paling mengerikan.



5. Michael Phelps
Lihat bahunya, sangat tidak alami. saya melihat seolah si Phelps ini sedang diterkam monster dan cuma tersisa kepalanya yang belum ditelan, atau seperti sedang ditabrak kapal tongkang dari belakang.



4. Brittany Murphy
Almarhun Brittany Murphy terkenal karena kecantikan dan bakatnya. Tetapi yang namanya manusia sewajarnya kalau memiliki pori-pori di wajah, kantung mata, atau sedikit keriput. Mungkin sang art director menginginkan penampilan Britany yang sempurna, tetapi semoga mereka juga sadar, bahwa publik sebetulnya menginginkan untuk melihat kecantikan yang 'sebenarnya'.



3. Beyonce
Beyonce yang begitu tenar, tetapi sangat disayangkan, kita samar dan tidak tahu warna kulit mana yang benar. Coba perhatikan kedua foto di bawah. itu adalah dua foto dengan pose yang sama, dan ditampilkan oleh dua majalah yang berbeda. Jadi mana warna kulit beyonce yang sebenarnya?

2. Penelope Cruz
Apakah Penelope punya leher sepanjang itu kecuali dia itu titisan jerapah? Tampak seram kan? Foto ini terpampang cukup lama di website L'Oreal sampai akhirnya mereka menyadari bahwa foto ini menakutkan dan mereka menggantinya.

Karena Minuman Orang Ini Jadi Miliarder Terkaya


 



China memiliki jumlah miliarder paling banyak di dunia. Rilis terbaru Hurun Rich List 2010 menyebutkan Negeri Tirai Bambu itu kini memiliki miliarder baru.

Dia adalah Zong Qinghou, pendiri Hangzhou Wahaha Group. Putus sekolah pada usia 18 tahun, Zong memilih merintis bisnis yang kini berkembang pesat. Jumlah karyawan yang dinaungi grup bisnisnya kini mencakup 30.000 orang.
Kekayaan Zong mencapai US$12 miliar atau melesat 12 peringkat dari tahun sebelumnya.

Zong (65) mendirikan Wahaha, yang dalam bahasa China berarti 'anak tertawa' pada 1987. Dia memulai usahanya dari berjualan di sebuah sekolah bisnis di timur kota Hangzhou, China.

Perlahan, usahanya makin berkembang hingga menjelma menjadi perusahaan pembuat minuman ringan terbesar di China.

Dalam perjalanan bisnisnya, Zong sempat menjalin kerja sama dengan Groupe Danone SA, sebelum akhirnya memutuskan hubungan dengan perusahaan Prancis itu pada 2007. 

Urutan terkaya kedua di China setelah Zong adalah Li Li. Pemilik perusahaan farmasi Shenzhen Hepalink Pharmaceutical itu memiliki kekayaan sekitar US$6 miliar.

Selanjutnya, Zhang Yin, pendiri raksasa kertas daur ulang Nine Dragons Paper dengan kekayaan US$5,6 miliar dan Liang Wengen, pemilik Sany Heavy Industry Co Ltd (US$5,4 miliar).

Sementara itu, Robin Li Yanhong, pendiri mesin pencari Baidu Inc memiliki kekayaan US$5,3 miliar dan Yan Bin, pemilik perusahaan properti Ruoy Chai International Group dan merek minuman energi, Red Bull dengan kekayaan US$5,3 miliar.

Rupert Hoogewerf, penggagas laporan Hurun mengatakan, lembaganya mengidentifikasi bahwa sekitar 400 orang China memiliki kekayaan lebih dari 1 miliar yuan tahun ini. Sebagian kekayaan orang China itu didorong oleh penjualan saham perusahaan startup di papan perdagangan ChiNext yang dibuka 11 bulan yang lalu di bursa Shenzhen.

"Kami melihat ChiNext menciptakan banyak orang kaya baru yang tidak diduga sebelumnya," kata Hoogewerf.

Inilah 6 Mega Proyek SBY-Boediono Dengan Biaya Trilyunan Rupiah


 
Pemerintah Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono - Boediono berjanji akan merampungkan sejumlah proyek-proyek besar sebelum pemerintahannya berakhir pada 2014.  
"Proyek-proyek ini ditarget sampai 2014," kata Menteri Pekerjaan Umum Djoko Kirmanto seperti ditulis VIVAnews, Senin 4 Oktober 2010.
Menurut Deputi Bidang Sarana dan Prasarana Bappenas, Deddy S Priatna, jumlah proyek besar itu cukup banyak. Tak hanya di Jawa, kata Deddy, sederet proyek besar itu mencakup darat, perhubungan laut, udara, penyeberangan dan kereta api. 

"Oktober ditetapkan prioritas sampai 2014. Baru kemudian bicara anggaran yang disediakan," kata Deddy.
Karena ini merupakan proyek-proyek raksasa, maka dana yang dibutuhkan juga sangat besar. Karena itu, Djoko menekankan pendanaan tidak bisa dibiayai pemerintah sendiri. Semua proyek masuk kategori multi years dan umumnya mendapat dukungan dari swasta. "Dana dari Anggaran Pendapatan dan Belanja Negara hanya sebagai stimulan." 

Berbeda dengan pemerintah Soekarno yang membangun proyek "mercusuar" yang menjadi ikon Indonesia, seperti Gelora Bung Karno dan Monumen Nasional. 
Sedangkan, pemerintah SBY-Boediono lebih memilih membangun proyek-proyek infrastruktur untuk mendorong kegiatan dan pertumbuhan ekonomi. Berikut ini proyek-proyek yang dijanjikan tuntas sebelum 2014. 

1. Jalan Tol Trans Jawa 
Jalan tol Trans Jawa merupakan jalan tol terpanjang di Indonesia. Panjangnya 650 kilometer menghubungkan kota-kota besar di Pulau Jawa. Dana yang dibutuhkan tidak main-main, puluhan triliun rupiah. Bayangkan, untuk membebaskan lahannya saja membutuhkan duit Rp5 triliun. Sebagian ruas sudah selesai seperti Tol Palimanan-Kanci di Cirebon, sebagian sedang dibangun dan dibebaskan lahannya. Jika jalan tol ini selesai, dipastikan bakal mendorong kegiatan dan pertumbuhan ekonomi Pulau Jawa. 

2. Jalan Tol Jabodetabek 
Jalan tol Jabodetabek ini mencakup jalan tol di lingkungan Jakarta dan sekitarnya. Pemerintah tengah menuntaskan pembangunan jalan tol dalam kota Jakarta, jalan tol lingkar luar Jakarta tahap II, jalan tol lingkar luar Bogor, serta jalan tol akses ke pelabuhan Tanjung Priok, Jakarta. 

3. Perluasan Pelabuhan 
Agenda besar mengembangkan sejumlah pelabuhan, salah satunya pelabuhan Tanjung Priok, Jakarta Utara menjadi pelabuhan bertaraf internasional. Dengan demikian, Priok bisa menampung kapal berkapasitas besar dari 3.000 teus menjadi 5.000 teus. Untuk itu, Priok akan melakukan reklamasi besar-besaran karena membutuhkan lahan 270 hektare. Total investasi itu diperkirakan mencapai Rp22 triliun.

4. Jalan Lintas Pulau 
Selain jalan tol, pemerintah SBY menjanjikan akan membangun jalan lintas Sumatera, Jawa, Bali, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara Barat, Nusa Tenggara Timur hingga Papua. Totalnya sepanjang total 19.370 kilometer pada 2014. 

5. Pembangkit Listrik 10.000 Megawatt Tahap II 
Pembangunan pembangkit listrik tahap II juga merupakan salah satu agenda pemerintah SBY setelah membangun Pembangkit Listrik Tahap I. Sebagian dari proyek pembangkit listrik tersebut akan mengandalkan sumber energi batu bara. 

6. Mas Rapit Transit (MRT) 
MRT Jakarta merupakan salah satu agenda besar angkutan transportasi massal. Ini sebenarnya sudah dibahas sejak 1985, namun mulai ada titik terang pada 2005, pada masa kabinet SBY tahap pertama. Meski sudah mulai digarap, namun proyek raksasa ini tidak akan tuntas 2014. Diperkirakan baru bisa terwujud 2016. Dana yang dibutuhkan sebesar Rp16 triliun.
