This round of the TV Olympics, we’re looking at switched-body performances! It’s typical of many science fiction and fantasy shows to have an episode or two when characters switch consciousness with each other. Usually it’s a one-to-one ratio, but other episodes get more creative – three characters switching, one character played by two actors, etc.
This isn’t one actor playing two characters (if that is more of a long-term thing, it probably fits into our dual roles poll), it’s where one actor plays a role typically portrayed by another actor (or a new enemy), and usually for only one or two episodes.
This poll will be open for one week, and you can choose up to 3 options. Please spread the word so your favorites will win medals, and be sure to vote in all our current Olympic polls!

I see there is Mark Salling as Blaine from the Glee body-switching episode, but I would also like to nominate Darren Criss as Puck, because “Blaine” with a mohawk was pure awesomeness! 😀
Thanks Matt Cohen as Michael you would not have made me more happy :)) and Jared Padalecki as Lucifer awesome.
For once, Jared Padalecki is up for something Jensen Ackles isn’t. You bet I’m voting for him, as well as Matt Cohen. Supernatural ROCKS!
Doctor Who – Billie Piper as Cassandra or David Tennant as Cassandra…
