TV Fact #108 – January 28th, 2015:

Actor Nicholas Campbell appeared as the Hitchhiker in the initial trilogy of “tryout” episodes for the mystery anthology series “The Hitchhiker” (1983-1991) , which originally aired in late 1983. After HBO picked the show up for a full second season, Campbell was unavailable to reprise his role, so actor Page Fletcher took over the role. Fletcher usually only worked one day a week and his wrap-around host segments were often shot in a half hour. For reruns, all of Campbell’s scenes were replaced with re-shot footage of Fletcher.
