15 Times Actors Posthumously Starred In A Movie
Just because a beloved celebrity is dead… doesn't mean they should be deprived of the opportunity to star in a blockbuster movie, or a keystone moment of prestige TV, or a commercial they'll never benefit from monetarily.
Oh, you disagree? So you're saying Marlon Brando shouldn't have been able to appear in Superman Returns? Just because he hadn't acted, or been alive, in years? You're telling me that Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, and Louis Armstrong don't deserve to appear together in an ad for Diet Coke? Because they're “dead?” Because they “didn't agree to do that?” Because they “probably wouldn't have given permission to digitally exhume their corpses, if they could even wrap their minds around the idea that that technology might one day exist?”
You expect me to believe… that Aubrey freaking Hepburn… might object to a chocolate company casting multiple people who kind of look like her… 3-D scanning their faces… and Frankensteining them together to make a somewhat passable replica of her face?
Well buddy, I suppose there's just no common ground for us to find.
