** Later on in the series, Simmons references ''Series/DoctorWho'', a show that has had lead actors like Creator/KarenGillan (Nebula in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''), Creator/ChristopherEccleston (Malekith in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''), and Creator/DavidTennant (Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones2015''). Now, Eccleston and Gillan's characters aren't from Earth so they can get a free pass. But no one seems to think that Kilgrave looks an awful lot like the Tenth Doctor.

Her answer is the TARDIS, the iconic police box time machine of ''Series/DoctorWho''. However, many ''Doctor Who'' alumni have showed up in Marvel Cinematic Universe projects, including Creator/KarenGillan (Nebula (Amy Pond in ''Doctor Who''; Nebula in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''), Creator/ChristopherEccleston (Malekith (the Ninth Doctor; Malekith in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''), and Creator/DavidTennant (Kilgrave (the Tenth Doctor; and Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'').

**The episode "Mr. Monk Gets Married" guest-stars Nestor Carbonell as an antiques dealer scheming to locate a prospector's long-hidden stash of gold.

Likewise, the episode "Mr. Monk and the Captain's Marriage" guest-starred Nicky Katt as a crooked cop, and Katt also appeared in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' (as the SWAT officer riding shotgun in the armored truck during the car chase).

** In "Mr. Monk and the Airplane", Creator/TimDaly makes an appearance as himself. Sharona mentions that he was in the show ''Series/{{Wings}}''. Her boss, the titular Adrian Monk, says he's never heard of ''Wings'', which is a good thing because he'd be the first to note his uncanny resemblance to the actor who plays Antonio Scarpacci (as both Monk and Antonio are played by Tony Shalhoub).
*** The existence of ''Wings'' in the ''Monk'' universe is interesting considering that one of Daly and Shalhoub's co-stars from the show, Steven Weber, guest-stars in "Mr. Monk Is On The Air" as shock jock Max Hudson, and you wonder if anyone thinks Max looks a lot like Brian Hackett.

** One that borders on ActorAllusion & MetaCasting; in one episode, the owner of a Russian dry cleaners refuses to put up Joey's picture, claiming he makes fun of Russians, with Joey noting he has a picture of Harrison Ford, who killed several Russians in Film/AirForceOne, which the dry cleaner admits he's never seen ("you should, it's great"). The dry cleaner is played by actor Ilia Volok who was in fact, in Film/AirForceOne and was Vladimir Krasin, the first terrorist Ford's character killed. [[note]] meaning that the dry cleaner never saw a movie where he gets killed, but Joey, who did see the movie, didn't notice that he looked like one of the terrorists from the film. [[/note]]
** The main villain of Film/AirForceOne (which Joey has seen), Egor Korshunov, was played by GaryOldman. Oldman showed up in the season finale the following year not playing himself; his character was an actor appearing in a big budget WWI epic with Joey.

** In "Amarillo", when doing a preview run of his D&M commercial to Kim, Jimmy sets up the scenario by saying they're watching ''Series/MurderSheWrote''. That show has seen guest stars like Creator/BryanCranston (Walter White), Michael [=McKean=] (Chuck [=McGill=]), Patrick Fabian (Howard Hamlin), Creator/RaymondCruz (Tuco Salamanca), Dennis Boutsikaris (Rick Schweikert), and Miriam Colon (Tuco's abuelita).
* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode "FZZT", The Dude from ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', is mentioned. That character, of course, is played by Jeff Bridges, who played Obadiah Stane in ''Film/IronMan'', also taking place in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.
** Later on in the series, Simmons references [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor Who]], which featured Creator/KarenGillan as Amy Pond, Creator/ChristopherEccleston as the Ninth Doctor, and Creator/DavidTennant as the Tenth Doctor. Those three actors all have parts in the MCU: Gillan as Nebula in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', Eccleston as Malekith in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', and Tennant as Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', respctively. Now, Eccleston and Gillan's characters aren't from Earth so probably don't know about ''Doctor Who'', however, Kilgrave has been on Earth his whole life. You have to wonder if any of his victims ever remarked about how they were brainwashed by a guy who looks a lot like the Tenth Doctor.
