Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

If we don't count his role as the Klingon commander of the cruiser squadron destroyed by V'Ger in ST:TMP, there were 17 years between "Journey to Babel (TOS)" and TSFS, the first time Mark Lenard appeared in the flesh on-screen as Sarek since the second season of the original series.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

That works, since the criteria is limited to actors playing the same role as previous.


eta: hmmm, what's the biggest gap for Lugosi as Dracula? or Christopher Lee?

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

doubleoh would probably be able to confirm the exact dates, but didn't almost 20 years pass between the original CBS Dallas going off the air and the new TNT version premiering? The late Larry Hagman played J.R. Ewing in both.

Edit: Wiki'ed it. 21 years.

Holy frak! Has that been twenty years already?

Dear lord...

  1. Ford/Hamill/Fisher (SW): 32 years
  2. Newman (Hustler/CoM): 25 years
  3. Hagman (Dallas): 21 years
  4. Carry/Daniels (D&D): 20 years
  5. Ford (IJ): 19 years
  6. Lenard (ST): 18 years
  7. Nimoy (ST): 18 years
  8. Dullea (2001/2010): 16 years
  9. Daniels/McDiarmid (SW): 16 years
  10. Russel (Escape from NY/LA): 15 years


ETA: Did we want to add voice actors? Because both Frank Welker and Peter Cullen reprised their Transformers roles as Megatron and Optimus Prime (respectively) 20 years later. Though, the characters weren't direct continuations, but rather "reboots" (for lack of a better term).

So, at this point, with one exception, the Star Wars Big Three™ are reprising their roles more than a decade later than anyone else has.

Damn.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

And there were 18 years between Eric Idle playing the English bike rider in European Vacation (1985) and reprising the same bike rider in the TV-movie sequel to the Vacation series Christmas Vacation 2 (2003).

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Bill Mumy, Twilight Zone. Original episode aired 1961, sequel episode aired 2002. BAM! 41 years between appearances of the same character by the same actor.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Make sure to include Diane Keaton as his wife Kay. And Richard Bright, who played Michael's personal muscle Al Neri in both II and III.
