In a thread over in the TV Forum, das Monkey mentioned Brian Dennehy, and that to me thinking about the movies he's been in and how he replaced Kirk Douglas in The Man From Snowy River.

How many can we come up with:

Movie | Character | Actor | Actor in Sequel

Man From Snowy River | Harrison | Kirk Douglas | Brian Dennehy

Mortal Kombat | Lord Rayden | Christopher Lambert | James Remar

007 | James Bond | Sean Connery | George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan

Any others?

Don't forget Elisabeth Shue replacing Claudia Wells as Jennifer in BTTF II and III.

Can we still count Ian McDiarmid replacing Clive Revill as the Emperor in Return of the Jedi? :) I know I prefer to.

Nope, Scott Mosier was in Mallrats, but he played Roddy, Svenning's assistant. Ethan Suplee was playing William Black, the same character Mosier played in Clerks and J&SBSB. Kevin Smith talked about a "William of two worlds" theory that explained his shift in appearance.

How about the re-casting of the JAWS kids throughout the four movies?

I mean, Dennis Quaid's character from JAWS 3-D suddenly becomes Lance Guest in JAWS: THE REVENGE.

You'd think Robert Englund would've been replaced... but he stuck it out! Good for him.

I say this without having seen many of the F13 movies, and the ones I have seen were long ago...

Jason is just a guy in a hockey mask, and I don't recall him cracking wise very often (if any.) Michael Myers (Halloween) is the same way.

Freddy *IS* Robert Englund with make-up on, and is the king of one-liners by homicidal maniacs.

Speaking of Halloween, and back on topic, Michael Myers was played by quite a few different people, including the brother of Erin Moran. -eek-

Still, you'd think he'd have been replacedd as time went on, or Englund would have left. A good few actors will leave "signature" roles that they deem too lowborw (more often than not, killing their careers in the process). Englund was never replaced, nor did he leave the role - quite possibly knowing he was onto something good.

In all fairness to Addams Family Values and the Matrix: Reloaded, both the actors died before the sequals could be shot...and the Vacation series, well the kids changing was sort of a running joke...

So when they change to a different character altogether (Speed 2; Teen Wolf, Too, etc, etc) does that really count?




Oh, how about The Police Squad TV show vs. the Naked Gun movies...TV Nordberg...Peter Lupus, tall white guy, never see his face, movie OJ Simpson...need I say more? =)


just my humble opinion...

Wait, has no one mentioned Marlon Brando and Robert Deniro as Vito Corleone?

10-19-04, 12:12 PM
First one that came to my mind:

Roddy McDowell as Cornelius from Planet of the Apes replaced with David Watson as Cornelius in Beneath the Planet of the Apes, but then Roddy McDowell returned to play Cornelius again in Escape from the Planet of the Apes, and then continued on to play Caesar in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes and Battle for the Planet of the Apes.

Phew!

Actors purposely hired to play someone at a different age in a character's life don't qualify. You really can't have Harrison Ford playing an 18 year-old Indy. Hell, Ford was even Indy in the same movie! These actors weren't replaced, they were simply not right for the characters at other ages.

Addams Family Values had Raul Julia in it...the movie that was mentioned was some direct to TV or video sequal that came out a few years later. I believe everyone was re-cast with a new actor.


Raul Julia was an awesome Gomez Addams.

and as a Tom Clancy fan, that would ring true for the earlier comment about the 'Jack Ryan' movies. Both 'The Hunt For Red October' and 'The Sum of All Fears' happened early in Jack Ryan's career...when he was in his 30's...Ford was a little old to play those as well :D

He died in '94 or 95.


What's even more sad is that his last movie was "Street Fighter: The Movie" :(

I was really into video games at that time and i still thought having that movie be a final movie was bad.


But even working with Van Damme couldnt sour his work in the Addams Family movies.
