Were you aware of it?

It is generally assumed that character actor Ron Perlman created the role of Vincent in television’s cult classic “Beauty and the Beast.” This is not, in fact, the case. The strange truth of the matter is that suffering from the effects of red kryptonite, a leonine Superman was enticed to help out a Hollywood producer with a new television series. While the first pilot has been lost, stills show that long time girlfriend Lois Lane played the role of Assistant District Attorney Catherine Chandler. Test audiences found Lane too unlikeable. She was quickly replaced by Linda Hamilton. After six episodes, the kryptonite’s effects wore off. This left the producers in a bad situation. It was the Metropolis Marvel himself that suggested Perlman take over the role; the rest is television history.
