Added DiffLines:

** The same thing happened with Abby and Gary's corporate lawyer James Westmont. Clayton Landey played Westmont in seven episodes of the fourth season while Joseph Hacker played him for the only time, presumably because Landey was unavailable, in the fifth season premiere "The People vs. Gary Ewing". Landey returned to the role for another seventeen episodes, remaining with the series until the middle of the sixth season. This change of actor was much more noticeable than the Scooter Warren example as Landey and Hacker don't look the least bit alike.

*** {{The Other Darrin}} David Ackroyd, who played Gary in his first appearance in the ''Dallas'' second season two-part premiere "Reunion", played Bill Medford in the ''Knots Landing'' episode "Mistaken Motives". He even shares a scene with his successor Ted Shackelford at one point. Ackroyd reportedly turned down the opportunity to reprise his role as Gary as he did not want to do a series. Considering Shackelford got 14 years of work out of ''Knots Landing'', you have to wonder if Ackroyd regretted that decision.
