Often times in TV shows you will have an actor come one a play a one time part then go away only to later appear on the same TV show but as a totally different character.
I have heard this happens all the time in Soap Operas.
Most of the time I really don’t notice but every once in awhile it will really bug me a lot
For instance, Richard Schaal played Howard Arnell, who Mary didn’t like, and his brother Paul Arnel, who Mary liked and also played Chuckle’s the clown etc etc (Of course at the time he was married to Valarie Harper so that may have got him the part).
My question is are there any times this happens on TV shows where one actor/actress plays a character and comes back later on as a totally different character and you just can’t accept the old actor/actress in the new role of a different character?
