* A rather impressive example in ''Film/TronLegacy'' where Jeff Bridges's 20-year-younger head is digitally re-created. Jeff Bridges performed motion capture for the younger CG face, but another actor entirely filled the glowy shoes.

* ''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.
