Big Screen, Small Screen
Many movies make the jump to the small screen at some point, and many television shows get super-sized up to the big screen. The cast of characters is frequently played by different actors, sometimes due to the stars' unwillingness to play the roles, sometimes due to the fact that so much time has passed that the original stars are dead or so old that it would be ridiculous. Whatever the reasons, we've listed several pairs of actors below that played the same characters, one on the big screen, one on the small screen. We haven't indicated which version came first, that's for you to figure out. (It's usually pretty obvious.) See how many characters and/or titles you can name.
