* ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' does this, after a fashion, for the lead actor, Creator/RayWinstone. The whole thing was filmed using motion capture, and Winstone claimed they put his head on his eighteen-year-old body. The same sort of thing was done with Creator/AngelinaJolie.

* In ''Film/BeingJohnMalkovich'', when John Malkovich goes into the door (and inside his own mind), he sees numerous clones of himself (both males ''and'' females), all with Malkovich's face digitally superimposed on everyone.
** At least partially it is actually a subversion: They used [[http://www.propstore.com/product/being-john-malkovich/john-malkovich-mask/ physical masks]] and make-up extensively through the scene, though, probably, digital make-up, as well.

* This was going to be done on ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' for the scenes of Steve Rogers before he becomes Cap, sticking Creator/ChrisEvans' face on a shorter, scrawnier stand-in. However, it was subverted when the director decided against it, in order to preserve Evans' unique body language. Instead, Evans was digitally shrunk down.

* In ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' when Jack and Rose are running down a flooded hallway, their faces are superimposed over stunt doubles.. It's noticeable, though, as the sequence was longer and in slow motion.

* The video for the Wet Wet Wet song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwKeNIUbMsM Strange]]" sees the band members having their heads swapped onto various types of bodies, including a pregnant woman, a contortionist and a child, by two Japanese women. At the end of the video, the tables are turned, and the two women end up with their heads swapped onto the bodies of a footballer and a male bodybuilder.

* ''Series/{{SeaQuest DSV}}'' has a variant on this, due to dignitaries being lost, they create the illusion of them touring the ship by digitally grafting their faces onto computer generated bodies that are touring the ship, buying them some time.

* ''Film/GameOfDeath''. In order to complete the movie after the death of BruceLee, they hired a {{FakeShemp}} to stand in for Lee by either obscuring most of his face with sunglasses or, in one infamous moment, [[SpecialEffectsFailure pasting a cardboard cutout of Bruce's face onto a mirror to act as the double's reflection]].

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', this has been used numerous times to revive Classic Doctors for cameos whose actors aren't young/alive enough to convincingly portray their version of the character. Drew some criticism in the significant shot of them all standing together in the ending of "Day of the Doctor", which involved [[SpecialEffectsFailure a waxwork Tom Baker head that looked nothing like him and some neck attachment problems]]. Well-received when reviving the First and Fourth Doctor for cameos in the "Save the Day" trailer, "Name of the Doctor" and "The Witch's Familiar", though.
