18 Actors Who Appeared in Remakes of Their Movies Years Later

It’s always a joy to see our favorite actors years later, especially if they return to the movies we all love. And it seems that movie directors like these appearances no less than we do since actors from the original cast definitely add something really special to remakes — especially when there’s a really cool correlation with the original version.

Here at More Shout, we’ve collected some cameo appearances of original cast members in remakes.

Ricki Lake (Hairspray), 1988 — 2007

Ricki Lake, who played the main character Tracy in 1988’s Hairspray appeared at the end of 2007’s remake watching the final show. And while she may have changed, her hair was still the same.

Jerry Stiller played Tracy’s father in the 1988 movie and returned back in 2007 as Mr. Pinky, the owner of a women’s clothing boutique who wanted Tracy to be his spokesperson. And it looks like he’s the only one who hasn’t changed at all over those 19 years!

Bill Murray (Ghostbusters), 1984 — 2016

Murray played one of the main characters, Dr. Peter Venkman, in the original Ghostbusters movie (1984). While he fought ghosts in 1984, in the 2016 female-driven version, he appears as a supernatural skeptic trying to debunk the new Ghostbusters.

Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters), 1984 — 2016

Another actor from the original Ghostbusters cast who appeared in the remake is Dan Aykroyd. From Dr. Raymond Stantz he was transformed into a cab driver, and although his cameo is quite brief, it’s still funny. In his scene, he refuses to give one of the Ghostbusters a ride, and what he says comes from the original movie’s theme song: “I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.”

Believe it or not, in 2016, Ghostbusters featured 3 more cameos and here they are:

Annie Potts (Janine) as a receptionist

Annie Potts, who was the Ghostbusters’ secretary, returned to the 2016 version as a hotel desk receptionist, answering phones with all the charm of the first film and repeats her line, “Wadda ya want?” from the original movie.

Ernie Hudson (Winston) as Patty’s Uncle Bill

You probably know Steven Spielberg’s movie War of the Worlds (2005). But you may not know that it’s a remake of The War of the Worlds which aired in 1953. Rachel and Robbie’s grandparents who appear in 2005’s version are played by Gene Barry and Ann Robinson who were the 2 main characters, Dr. Forrester and Sylvia in the original 1953 version.

Charlton Heston (Planet of the Apes), 1968 — 2001

Charlton Heston played the leading role of George Taylor in the 1968 original movie, Planet of the Apes. In 2001’s remake he appears as Thade, Zaius’ father. He also has a great line that reads, “Damn them! Damn them all to hell,” which correlates with his line in the original movie, “Damn you! God damn you all to hell!”

Linda Harrison (Planet of the Apes), 1968 — 2001

Another cameo role in 2001’s Planet of the Apes belongs to Linda Harrison who played Nova in the original movie. She played a brief role in the beginning as one of the captured people who was carried to Ape City in a wagon cage. The woman says nothing which is a reference to the fact that Nova was mute.

Angie Dickinson and Henry Silva (Ocean’s Eleven), 1960 — 2001

In case you didn’t know, Ocean’s Eleven with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and the rest of the cast, which aired in 2001 is not the original movie, but a remake of the 1960s film of the same name. Unfortunately, not many actors from the original cast were alive when the 2001 version came out so Angie Dickinson and Henry Silva were the only ones who got to appear in the famous remake we all know. Angie played Danny Ocean’s wife Beatrice in the original Ocean’s Eleven and Henry was Roger Corneal. Both of the actors very briefly appeared in the remake as boxing spectators during
the robbery.

James LeGros and Bojesse Christopher (Point Break), 1991 — 2015

LeGros and Christopher who played robbers Roach and Grommet in the original 1991 version briefly appear in 2015’s movie on the other side of the action — as FBI agents.

Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek), 1979 — 2009

 

8612560 37972260 bbd0951973532950124d3387ee4c9034c75a0120 1500 1 1545292826 728 c3ba2dbe5a 1545389649 - 18 Actors Who Appeared in Remakes of Their Movies Years Later

Leonard Nimoy played Spock in the original Star Trek movies and surprisingly came back in its 2009 remake as…Spock! And although the remake has its Spock played by Zachary Quinto, Nimoy became Spock Prime — Spock from the future.

Marc McClure (Freaky Friday), 1976 — 2003

 

8612510 37976210 53ea669bdc1749b9e9768ce027eb02b2ba60bf73 1500 1 1545292840 728 ed486af9cc 1545389649 - 18 Actors Who Appeared in Remakes of Their Movies Years Later

Another surprising cameo was made by Marc McClure in Freaky Friday, who played Annabel’s neighbor Boris that she liked. In the remake, he played the small role of a postman named…Boris! We’re not sure if he is the same Boris, but it’s definitely very intriguing.

Patty McCormack (The Bad Seed), 1956 — 2018

 

8612410 37976960 2f593313d61da095ee13cd553a75bf70c86cd1f7 1500 1 1545292853 728 33df8096c0 1545389649 - 18 Actors Who Appeared in Remakes of Their Movies Years Later

Patty McCormack played an 80-year-old killer, Rhoda in 1956’s The Bad Seed. In 2018 in Rob Lowe’s remake she also got a role — and a very surprising one at that! She played Emma’s psychiatrist (Emma is the killer this time) and she told her “I did the exact same things as you at your age,” which was a really cool reference to the original movie.
