Original actors vs remake actors

Whenever another remake gets announced, the majority of film fans, or people what can type, find themselves in a state of uncontrollable fury. "It'll never be as good as the original", "Why doesn't Hollywood get some new ideas?" and "How dare they remake that film I didn't really like anyway?" can all be heard ad nauseum.

But we're a bit obsessed with them, even when they're truly awful (not naming names but Wicker Man). We've previously compared the posters of the old and the new but now, we're comparing the actors chosen to play each role. Some are rather similar while some are rather not. Discuss.
