Computer Generated Actors

The following clip is very impressive. Estimates are that digital actors could replace carbon-based ones in 2020. With the right software we could place ourselves or family members into future mainstream movies, not by photoshopping, but by swapping out the digital actor component in a "film". Software would play the film, but access your new character instead of the original component. How about swapping out the characters in "Aliens" with the cast of "Friends"? Weirder things will happen.
