Same actor plays the same role in the remake?
In exactly the same way as Miss Cruz, playing the same part in the English language remake:
Well Gary Burkoff played Radar both in the original movie MAS*H the TV series.
Not exactly a remake, but rather a reboot: Judi Dench in the recent James Bond movies.
Speaking of reboots, I was wondering if Leonard Nimoy playing Spock in the latest Star Trek movie would count.
Not in films, but there were some Broadway revivals that used original stars: Annie Get Your Gun (Ethel Merman), and The King and I (Yul Brynner – twice), Hello Dolly (Carol Channing – also twice)
Well, Charlie Brill played Arne Darvin in the Star Trek:TOS episode “The Trouble With Tribbles.” He then played the same character 30 years later in the Star Trek:DS9 episode “Trials and Tribble-ations.”
Honorable mention goes to Michael Caine, who appeared in both film versions of Sleuth, but as two different major characters in each (not just a cameo, which often happens).
Clark Gable—Red Dust in 1932 and Mogambo in 1953. With Jean Harlow the first time and Ava Gardner the second time. Nice jobs if you can get them.
Peter Cullen played Optimus Prime in “Transformers” in 1986 and again in 2007, though I suppose the second movie was not really a remake of the first.
James Stewart was in at least two versions of Harvey. 1950 and 1972 (TV).
The pilot episode of Forever Knight (1992) was a remake of a 1989 TV movie called Nick Knight. John Kapelos played Detective Donald Schanke in both versions.
I know, I know, it’s not an official remake, but to many it feels like one (we had an entire thread on this a couple of months ago).
John Wayne - Rio Bravo 1959 and El Dorado 1966.
Liz Smith as Mrs. Dilber in 1984’s A Christmas Carol (with George C. Scott) and again in the 1999 version (with Patrick Stewart).
Sean Connery in Thunderball and Never Say Never Again.
Alan Hale Sr played “Little John” in the 1922 version of “Robin Hood” starring Douglas Fairbanks and the 1938 “Adventures of Robin Hood” starring Errol Flynn.
This was technically not a remake, but Richard Roundtree played John Shaft in the 2000 movie “Shaft”. Samuel L. Jackson was Roundtree’s namesake nephew in that picture.
Also technically not a remake, Harry Morgan played Bill Gannon in 1987s “Dragnet”, which starred Dan Aykroyd as Joe Friday’s nephew. Gannon was the original Friday’s partner in the 1967 TV series.
Patrick Stewart played King Claudius in the Derek Jacobi Hamlet in 1980, and again in the David Tennant Hamlet in 2008/2009.
