Downcast (I know it sounds silly, but ...)

I was wondering if it is possible in Python to do something analogous to
downcasting in a statically typed language like C++. I mean is it possible
to take an instance of a base class and magically transform it into an
instance of some derived class eventually fixing things (like the missing
attribute data)?
