Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

^ Done ... and thanks for the (presumptive) record holder, sojourner. I was wondering if we'd find someone with a bigger timeframe. This has been fun. If anyone else has others to add, feel free to add them!

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

JD's original question was longest time between a character's first appearance and his/her last appearance. The question isn't asking what's the longest gap between appearances.

Leonard Nimoy's Spock is still at the top of the list with 47 years (1966-2013).

Yeah, we changed the question to one that was more interesting.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

It's different, though, if you get to see that character grow, mature, and age over much (some) of that timeframe. To me, the most noteworthy (perhaps even jarring) aspect of having Luke, Han & Leia back is not that I first saw them back in the late 70s, but that I haven't seen them (production wise) since the early 80s.

Or to put another way, consider the people I met when I first started high school. It'd be more ... noteworthy if I was suddenly reintroduced to the old acquaintances I haven't seen since graduation as opposed to the few I've kept tabs on in the years since.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

And besides, Nimoy's Spock would be 49 years under that criteria.

"The Cage" was filmed in 1964.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Also, there was apparently a sequel to the French film Belle de Jour (1967) called Belle toujours (2010) which brought back Michel Piccoli as Henri Husson. That's a crazy 43 year gap.

I admit, I used this page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...n_film_sequels) to find that out.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

EDIT: Whoops, the sequel came out in '06, not '10. So shave four years off that one.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

There was an episode of Boston Legal that used footage of William Shatner from the original TV movie for The Defender. Does that count? ('57 to '07 -- fifty years later).

Also, didn't Ed Asner recently reprise a role he originated on the original Hawaii 5-0 on the new one? (EDIT: Yeah, 1975 and 2012).

There's also William Russell who played Ian Chesterton on Doctor Who.

Doctor's Who's "The Chase" in 1965 to newly shot footage of The Crusades in 1999. That's 34 years.
