I think of bad guys from movies or series who launder their (fictional) biographies by means of playing good guys n more recent TV shows.
Miguel Sandoval district attorney Devalos in "Medium" series.
He became famous in movies "Clear And Present Danger" where he was Pablo Escobar, and "Death Wish V", where he was Hector Vasquez, corrupted D.A.'s associate! But now he is a good D.A.
Tony Denison is now a good guy in series "The Closer" and "Major Crimes". He is detective and investigator there.
But he began as notorious Ray Luca in "Crime Story"!
