* During filming of the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The Gamesters of Triskelion", George Takei was busy filming the movie ''The Green Berets''. Chekov took his place in the script, with a barroom brawling style in the episode's fight scenes taking the place of the martial arts scenes planned for Sulu.
** Ditto "The Trouble With Tribbles"; Chekov's instant recognition of quadro-triticale made more sense when the script was written for Sulu, as Sulu had an established background in botany.

* On ''Series/{{Angel}}'', Wesley was absent for one Season Five episode, because Alexis Denisof was on his honeymoon with Alyson Hannigan. He was replaced for the episode by another expert on occult lore, with the explanation that Wesley was taking some well-deserved time off after [[spoiler: killing a robot that he believed to be his father]].

* When Jason David Frank took time off to visit his family in Texas, the producers of the New Zealand-filmed ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' were forced to first trap his character, Tommy Oliver, in Ranger form, and later, render him invisible for two episodes. Since Tommy is a high school science teacher by this point in the franchise, they also had to grab several Substitute Teachers. To make things significantly more interesting, one of the substitutes was the [[JekyllAndHyde human form]] of the BigBad.

* The dog Vinnie in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', an wiseguy (well, Wisedog) with an Italian accent and a streetwise attitude that the Griffin take after [[spoiler: Brian's death. This until he helped Stewie go back in time to save Brian's life]]

* A rather unique example, also from ''LawAndOrder'': When Jill Hennessey’s character Claire Kincaid made a crossover appearance on ''HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'', conflicting and overlapping production schedules forced producers to [[MakingUseOfTheTwin recruit her identical twin sister Jacqueline]] (a host and occasional actress on Canadian TV) to double for her sister in a few courtroom scenes. This unusual substitution, in the episode "Corpus Delicti," was not credited on-screen.

* On ''Series/{{Wiseguy}}'', during the second season Garment Industry story arc, when Vinnie got roughed up by a loan shark and was replaced by retired agent John Henry Raglin. In reality, actor Ken Wahl broke his ankle doing a stunt on the show and needed time to recover.

* One episode of ''{{Monk}}'' featured only Tony Shaloub and none of the other regular cast members, as due to some trouble behind the scenes it was essentially written that way by the crew as a warning that they could still do the show without them. Since this meant Monk's regular assistant Sharona was absent, recurring character Kevin Dorfman served her usual role instead.

** ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber The Mind Robber]]'': Frazier Hines got chicken pox during filming. A scene was quickly inserted where the Doctor has to reassemble Jamie (it really does [[ItMakesSenseInContext make sense in context]]) and accidentally used Hamish Wilson's face. Later in the episode, a second put-Jamie-back-together brought Hines back once he got better.
