    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.

    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! :techman:

    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.

    Many Bothans died to bring us this information.

    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.

    That was actually one of the last ones I watched. They even used footage from the original episode as flashbacks. It's kind of weird though, the new cast is playing the same characters as the original cast, so all of the events of the original episode can't have happened in the new episode, but the flashbacks mean that at least some of it did.

    Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

    Now: if you wanna talk the two characters that have been in more episodes of different TV series than any others in Hollywood history we're probably talking Det. John Munch (Richard Belzer) and Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty), who each appeared on no fewer than four or five different shows as the same character, and in fact Munch was on one or two episodes of The X-Files at the same time he was on Homicide and just before he joined Law & Order: SVU.

    I know this is a different category, but it's a fun one when you delve into it.

    Yep, Munch does a big job of enabling Tommy Westphall.
