In that post about the way HBO will be farming out 'In Treatment' to other countries, I mentioned how certain characters have been recast over and over again for TV productions.
Here's how many TV dimensions you'd need just for Inspector Maigret. (Although I'm sure many of these, like the one played by Richard Harris, are from the movie universe.....)

Alas, Maigret is not a well known character in the U.S. I wish it were otherwise, and it should be. The only television treatment I've ever seen of him was the BBC series, with Michael Gambon as Maigret. (and I think it shot in Budapest, as a city that might best be taken for Paris of a few score years ago) I thought it was excellent.
