Television Roles that became iconic after recasts



-One of the most enjoyable aspects of tv is a good old recast. That original pilot of your favorite show wherein one of the characters is played by someone else? It brings a whole new appreciation to the character most of the time.

-One original pilot that has yet to hit the light of day is Game of Thrones that had various actors in different roles so we'll just ignore all of those.
