(Perkins) Psycho (1960) and Psycho II (1983): 23 years

(Yeah, it's on wiki list that Harvey linked to, but I thought of it on my own. )

Momoko Kochi should take it, she played Emiko Yamane in Godzilla(1954) and again in Godzilla VS Destroyer(1995) that's a 41 year gap.

But was he playing the same character in both movies?

David Hedison played CIA agent Felix Leiter in two James Bond films 16 years apart: Live and Let Die and Licence to Kill. In fact he was the only actor before the Craig films came along to play Felix Leiter more than once.

Well, that answers that question. I had always wondered about where that old footage was from!

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I feel my brain is defective, I hear the original cast is reprising their roles and my first thought is Carrie Fisher and metal bikini. Take that, Uhura fan dance! I was on a site earlier that had old pictures of Carrie from Rolling Stone, I can only blame that for my errant synapse firings.

Just breaking:

Dame Judi Dench as Mon Mothma in the new film?

I could get behind that idea if it develops into more than a rumor.
Many Bothans died to bring us this information.

Holy frak! Has that been twenty years already?

Dear lord...
It's crazy to think there was only 16 years between 2001/2010. Well, there's only 9 years between 2001 and 2010 but you know what I mean....

If we're counting footage within things, Columbo: "Forgotten Lady" (1975) uses footage from a movie made 22-years before, "Walking My Baby Back Home" (1953) also starring Janet Leigh, for the film-within-the-episode that stars the murderer, Grace Wheeler Willis.

Honorable Mention (in the ball park but not quite...): Buster Crabbe played Brigadier Gordon in Buck Rogers 39 years after Flash Gordon.

Carl Reiner's character from The Dick Van Dyke Show reappeared more than 30 years later on Mad About You.
