We all know Shrek as the ornery -- but lovable -- ogre voiced by Mike Myers. But prior to Myers and his fake-Scottish accent, master comedian Chris Farley was cast as the grumpy green hero and even recorded most of the character's dialogue before his death in 1997, according to a report by USA Today. And just this week, a test reel of Farley voicing Shrek alongside Eddie Murphy (as Donkey), has surfaced online, revealing what could have been a significantly different character. Hear it for yourself.
