Many of these cases are pretty famous: Michael J.

So help me out, movie fans: what other movies had to replace their stars in the middle of production, whether for death, disability, or excessive Stolz-iness? It turns out many of the most famous cases of this phenomenon Jack Haley in that Munchkin movie, Viggo Mortensen in those hobbit movies are supporting roles.
