With Paul Walker's passing triggering a necessary change in the Fast and Furious franchise, we decided to take a look at the phenomenon of a TV or film series having to decide on recasting a character. Sometimes it is due to loss, but many other times it is due to an actor's ego or selfish needs. So when an actor departs, how do you know when it should be recast versus just letting the character go?
