Subj: I think it is quite safe to say that the precedent you fear was set a long time ago

There are tales in Hollywood for years of assorted actors/actresses stamping their foot and making demands if not outright usurping control of the project.
Stallone's Judge Dredd being a prime example of usurping control and refusing to wear the helmet all the time as the character is supposed to do.
There are also many tales and legends of how Shatner in both the Trek series and movies would use his..influence...to get certain scenes altered or dialog changed, etc.
One legend that I have never been able to confirm or deny is that in Star Trek 3 Search for Spock, SULU was going to become Captain of the Excelsior and Shatner....shall we say....interfered, thus keeping Sulu on the Enterprise crew and making the problems the two actors had with each other even worse then they already were from the TV series days.
Given that Sulu was the Captain of the Excelsior in Trek 6 and only appeared briefly tends to lend credence to that legend but it is still not confirmed.
Val Kilmer: another actor hard to work with unless he gets his way about whatever is bugging him
