Playing other people's characters?

How do people here deal with someone playing another person's character? For example, say a player has to leave the game, and the GM hands the character over to another player.

I'm leery of doing it, mostly because I'm afraid of not being able to do them justice. I've also seen this done in other games, and it's never seemed to turn out well.

On a somewhat related note, any suggestions on what to do when a player wants you to play his NPC buddy, sibling, or whatever, and then is unhappy with your interpretation of the character?
