Only intended to be a one-shot character and was killed at the end of the episode.

Then the producers thought, "Hey, Jeffrey Combs is awesome, we gotta bring that guy back."

Originally written for one episode only. The producers wisely kept her on for the rest of the show's run.

List fails without Ben Linus.

Michael Emerson was originally contracted to appear in just three episodes of Lost, but the producers were so impressed by his acting that they kept him and made him a pivotal part of the series.

Nobody "liked" Gayda, except that he wasn't a toaster. He was a slightly retarded asshole.

Doc was the shiat though. With the modern non-smoking vibe, he rocked them IN the medical ward.

Also from that show, the lawyer, Romo Lampkin. Was noted up thread for his Firefly performance as well.

THE ALCHEMIST
Okay, this is really gross. Once I was out of toilet paper so I used cotton balls. So, you know, I'm wiping, and I think my finger kinda poked through the cotton, so I, and- and, do not ask me why, I smell my finger to check-

JEFFERSON

Gross!! I see where this is going.

DR. ORPHEUS

Quickly, Al, he's so close!

THE ALCHEMIST

Okay! I bring it up to smell it, right, but somehow the cotton got stuck to my fingers, so when I smell my fingers the cotton's getting stuck to my razor stubble! So then I have this shiat cotton all over my face!

wildcardjack: What exactly makes a character minor?

On Hogan's Heros there was one guy who constantly showed up as a German driver or one of the guards. He constantly changed roles but never said a word. And I doubt anyone noticed on the original run because the TV's weren't that clear. Now that was a minor character.

/Scruffy only exists to deliver a zinger.

Hired just as a throwaway character for "Voyage of the Damned"; retconned as Donna's grandfather when the actor playing her dad died. Amazing in "Turn Left", "Stolen Earth"/"Journey's End" and the first half of "The End of Time".

See? It's what I'm saying. This is the laziest shiattiest site on the Internet. They don't even know what they're talking about. At least Cracked, as shiatty as it can get, does some actual research and don't publishes articles that can be written in 3 minutes using GIS.
