* YouLookFamiliar:
** A very unusual case: a recurring character named Ben Stivers appeared in the Dream Season. Obviously after Pam woke up he didn't appear anymore, but an identical character named Wes Parmalee did and was played by the same actor (see also AbortedArc above).
** Tracy Scoggins played a call girl named Dianne in the seventh-season episode "My Brother's Keeper", and then returned to play Anita Smithfield in ''J.R. Returns''.
** Mitch Pileggi (who plays Ann's ex-husband, Harris Ryland), in addition to being an extra in a very early episode in the 80's, had a three-episode role in the original series as a mental patient who bullied J.R. when he was in a mental institution.
** Brenda Strong (Ann) had a role in a tenth-season episode of the original series as one of Cliff's one night stands.
** Creator/GlennMorshower (who plays Lou, a lawyer who helps the Ewings throughout the first season) played a small role as a campaign aide in the original series' first-season episode "Black Market Baby".
** Barry Corbin, who played Sheriff Washburn in the original series, appears as J.R.'s lawyer during the will-reading scene in "Ewings Unite!".
** In the revival, Creator/SamAnderson plays a recast of Dr. David Gordon (who was established as Pam's doctor/pretend fiancee in the last episode featuring her in the original series), while in the original series he played a detective during Season 8 who helped Bobby prove Jenna innocent of murder.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Among other notable character actors, the producers of the 2012 series seem hellbent on featuring every supporting cast member of the {{FOX}} series ''Series/TwentyFour'' they can find, including Carlos Bernard (Tony Almeida) as Vicente Cano, Glenn Morshower (Aaron Pierce) as Lou Rosen, Faran Tahir (Tomas Sherek) as Frank Ashkani and Annie Wersching (Renee Walker) as Alison Jones.
** [[Series/StargateAtlantis Colonel Caldwell]] has left the Air Force and is now in business in Dallas.
** Some of the early episodes feature [[GilligansIsland the "movie star" Ginger]].
** One of the minor characters near the end of the original run was portrayed by Barbara Eden. Somehow, it might make you think that [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie a genie and her master reunited again]].
** They also seem hellbent on featuring Desperate Housewives alumni in their cast - Mary Alice, John the Gardener, Aidan the Bad Boy...
