Was Barrymore filmed at all before he was replaced on The Alternative Factor? Then there's Genvieve Bujold. Neither was a death, but similar circumstances.
Max already answered about Barrymore; Bujold's footage can be seen as an extra on the Season 1 Voyager DVD. I never bought it, but I borrowed it from a coworker just to see her.

She's a very good actress, but she did seem out of place in a leadership role. Mulgrew was a better choice.

Re: David Rappaport in "The Most Toys"

It's an awful story. He attempts suicide in March. Presumably he gets some sort of help, or maybe not. In either case, he then legally purchases a gun around April 17th (according to IMDb), and kills himself with it 15 days later.

As far as I know, background checks in CA are supposed to catch things like suicide attempts, but I don't know what the process was in 1990. Either way, he was granted a weapon that he should not have been allowed to receive. Was he even a US citizen?

Today, information is so instant, they could just do a quick database search and see that he wasn't ok. Back then, did they even have the waiting period for firearms? The information on his attempted suicide probably wasn't in his "file" so soon after the attempt was made.

Re: David Rappaport in "The Most Toys"

Speaking of actors missing out on roles, I forget how far into planning Robin Williams was to playing Rasmussen in A Matter of Time. That would have been great. Frewer was more than good enough though.

Rappaport footage confirmed:

This is yet another example of the love these guys have for the material. They want the fans to have the very best experience, and I applaud them.

Re: David Rappaport in "The Most Toys"

I thought he was terrific in Time Bandits. Looked like he really had a lot of potential. It was so saddening to hear of his suicide. But wow, I had no idea David Rappaport would've been Fajo... It's great they're including the footage on the Blu-ray discs. Looking forward to seeing it!

Now that the 3rd season is out on blu ray, what does everyone think of Rappaport's performance as Fajo? Does it mesh well with the rest of the episode? I've heard he is more "sinister"... How so? I haven't seen it yet, but I'd love to hear the first impressions of those who have seen it.

It would have been a great episode, from what I've seen.

Something about him being a little person, makes him more intimidating/sinister than Saul R. portraying the character, though he did a fine job.

I met Saul at work a year ago during some WH13 work, he's kind of a grumpy guy in person...at least that day he was.

It's kind of unfair to completely judge David, but I wasn't that impressed with what I did see of his footage.

I think that Saul did a fine job, also given the fact that he had basically no time to prepare for the role at all.
