We don't know. No official sources have talked about this, and with a movie this old, I doubt they ever will. Multiple theories exist around the web. From TheGamer: This would be because Finger was voiced by none other than Vin Diesel. Diesel went uncredited for this small role. Though Besson has stated that he does not want to make a sequel, I ...

I'm not going to make this too political, but it took a lot of people a lot of effort to change these old perceptions, and not just in Hollywood, in all walks of life. Twilight Zone was first broadcast in 1959. The world was a significantly different place back then. Hollywood wasn't alone in excluding non-white actors [and technicians, writers, producers] ...

From The New York Times So why was Swinton playing Lutz Ebersdorf? “Undeniably, I would have to say, for the sheer sake of fun above all,” Swinton emailed. “As my grandmother would have it — a motto to live and die by — ‘Dull Not To.’” Still, Swinton and her director had more in mind than just playfulness. Guadagnino had always conceived “...

I don't have a direct source for this but my speculation based on the story is, that because he's IMO Timothy Hutton makes one feel that weight, where Henry Thomas just seemed so much lighter, causal, and unburdened and I think that is the point. The Dudleys don't really change. They're characters that seemed to understand Hill House from the start of this ...

If the movies count, then Leonard Nimoy (Spock) was effectively written out. However, he was then written back in. Originally, Leonard Nimoy did not want to return for Star Trek II, due to concerns about being typecast in the role. He was enticed to return by a promise of a meaty—and permanent—death scene in the movie. However, Nimoy had a much better ...

John Goodman still starred in Always: he played Al Yackey, the best friend of protagonist Pete Sandich. Here he is on the poster: The Flintstones didn't begin filming until 1993, four years after Always was released, so Spielberg could cast him in the former without affecting his participation in the latter.

The characters played by DiCaprio and Pitt are 'inspired by' (not exactly based on) Reynolds and Needham in an entirely fictional, almost tangential way. Reynolds and Needham had no involvement in Manson or the events that transpired. These two fictional characters are placed into the true story of the Tate murders (well, Tarantino true). The other actors ...

There are several possible reasons for this. The actor was so good they made them a regular, but their original character doesn't fit in the ongoing plot, as is often the case with disposable minor characters.

At that time, Elizabeth Taylor was contracted to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. They would be the only people with any hope of having any records to confirm or deny your anecdote. 6 of the 8 movies Ms Taylor made across that period were shot at MGM Hollywood, the other 2 in the UK. However, even up to the 80s, 'extras' working for movie studios wouldn't be properly ...

As Lars Bosteen suggests in his comment, Theo Lingen plays the character referred to as the "con-man" in this transcript. (That's what "bauernfänger" translates to.)

Arguably, John Ford & John Wayne. - 24 to 35 years (1928/39 - 1963) Ford directed Wayne in Stagecoach (1939) and continued to feature him until at least 1963 with Donovan's Reef. In fact, Ford had directed Wayne in several movies prior to 1939 (as far back as 1928) but Stagecoach was Wayne's breakout role.

There are no official sources for this, but from my understanding, Winston Story was specifically cast because of his resemblance to Joe Lo Truglio. There was no coincidence, he was chosen to play a Boyle doppelganger.
