Default Actors who played multiple roles in re-enactments

I just started watching the Charles Lazarus segment from S6.

The lady working in the "sundry items" store grabbed my attention (at 34:30). She seemed familiar, and then it hit me. SHE'S MYRNA! One of the people duped by Gertrude Pruitt.

Totally the same lady. Has this ever happened with re-enactment actors??

Check it out for yourselves:

S2 EP17 - FRAUD - Gertrude Pruitt
S6 EP18 - LOST HEIRS - Charles Lazarus

Well, I know this doesn't seem to be a hot-button issue, but I just discovered another one!

The actress who played Wendy Camp in S6 E5 is the same actress who plays Leila Stallings in S7 E11, the "School Bus family".

I just think this is the funniest thing ever. Would love to know what you guys think, and if there are more double-castings.

I brought this up in another thread but the hitchhiker from the Phillip Fraser segment and Allen Feingold from the Joseph Prushinowski segment appeared to be the same actor.

I think you're right! He did a great job with the Yiddish voice in the as Feingold, but I have a feeling it's the same guy.

I just noticed that yesterday. It made me wonder, since both cases happened in Oklahoma, if she was a local to the area. Maybe when UM returned to the state to film the Stallings case, they just asked the actress to appear again.

The actor who portrayed Bradford Bishop also played a role in the Kurt Boridan Vietnam Vet segment.

Good catch, I just noticed this myself.

Diane Borton and Mary Gillespie are seemingly were played by the same actress, I think?

Different color hair, to be certain, but wigs are pretty standard for these types of segments I presume?

The Boston mall rapist and the hunter who finds Ethel Kidd is one that immediately comes to mind.

The "crazy from Detroit" in the Kurt Sova segment and the Blind River rest stop killer is another.

I think the actress who portrayed the "real" Bonnie Wilder also provided some of those great voiceovers in the Gail Delano and Audrey Moate segments.

My favorite example of this is the actor who played the flamboyant fraudster Todd Mueller.

He was also in the C.W. Roddy segment, playing one of the gangsters that was terrorizing her neighborhood

He also played the suspect known as "Larry Monroe" in the Donald Smith segment

I am positive that the road rage shooter in the Dick Hansen case (49er Hugs Case) is the same actor who played the shooter in another road rage case...I just cant' remember if it was David Hurley (Young Dad going to Boy Scout Camp that got back home and told his wife details before he died) or the Rich Aderson case where he was shot and killed by someone on a highway in NY. It was weird too because both composite sketches looked alike...always wondered if cases might be connected even if far away.

Recently re-watched the Bill Henderson segment. I'm pretty certain that one of the hitchhikers was played by the same actor who played Donny Hansen.

The actor who played the part of Don Dixon in the Eric Tamiyasu segment is also the campus police officer and creepy landlord in the Brook Baker segment, as well as the police officer who receives the anonymous letter regarding the location of the skull in the Linda Sherman segment! One wonders if he is a relative of either Cosgrove or Meurer!

1) Your signature made me laugh so hard.

2) Good eye! That landlord bit with him coming in while she was in the shower scared the hell out of me the first time I saw it. I can't believe I didn't realize it was the same actor who spouted, "I didn't see any exit wounds!"
