What would be the best way to fix the page?

Split into:

  1. A trope for "Actor X is similar enough to Actor Y that s/he can be considered a decent substitute.", which is this trope.
  2. Casting changes that seem no different than The Other Darrin, which should be merged into The Other Darrin.
  3. Producers asking for "I want an actor like X" and actually getting X, which becomes its own trope.

Rename to clarify this is about actors, not just about anything else that can be called a poor man's substitute.
