** On the other hand, there was a horror-themed episode where, throughout the episode, Sam makes references to things like "Christine" (for a car) and "Kujo" for a dog. At the end of the episode, it's revealed that a minor character, a young man named "Stevey" (in front of whom the references were made) was actually [[spoiler: Creator/StephenKing]].
*** Not sure that applies to this trope as that's more of a circular paradox. i.e. Sam reads books by King, travels through time, [[spoiler: King happens to use these names when writing said books later in life]].

*** ''Film/TheGodfather Part II'' is referenced in dialogue during flashbacks to Luke's time in prison. That movie in the ''Godfather'' trilogy stars Creator/RobertDeNiro as a young Vito Corleone, the same De Niro that appeared as Captain Shakespeare in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' , a film which also features Creator/CharlieCox (Matt Murdock) as Tristan Thorn, and also features Creator/BenBarnes (Billy Russo from ''Series/ThePunisher'') as the younger version of Tristan's father.
*** ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' is referenced in the first episode when Misty shows up at the junkyard shootout scene. The original two movies featured Creator/SigourneyWeaver, who appears in ''Series/TheDefenders2017'' as an antagonist.

----



* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''
** In "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.
** In the "Pilot," a reference is made to Hermione from the Harry Potter books and their film adaptations. There have been some actors who've appeared in the MCU and the Harry Potter film adaptations, most notably Creator/DavidTennant, who was Barty Crouch Jr. in the film adaptation of ''Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'' and Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones2015''.
** Later on in the series, Agent Simmons is asked what object she'd most like to find on a deserted island, based on what first comes into her mind. Her answer is the TARDIS, the iconic police box time machine of ''Series/DoctorWho''. However, many ''Doctor Who'' alumni have shown up in Marvel Cinematic Universe projects, including Creator/KarenGillan (Amy Pond in ''Doctor Who''; Nebula in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''), Creator/ChristopherEccleston (the Ninth Doctor; Malekith in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''), and Creator/DavidTennant (the Tenth Doctor; Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones2015''). Now, Eccleston and Gillan get a free pass since their MCU characters are not from Earth. But no one in ''Jessica Jones'' remarks about Kilgrave's resemblance to the Tenth Doctor, especially since David Tennant portrays Kilgrave using the same Estuary English accent he used in ''Doctor Who''.
** In the Season 2 episode "A Hen in the Wolf House", Skye mockingly calls Lance "[[Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy Ron Burgundy]]". Paul Rudd, who played Brian Fantana in the ''Anchorman'' films, plays Scott Lang a.k.a. ''Film/AntMan''.



* The [[Franchise/{{Arrowverse}} Arrowverse]]:
** ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Ray and Felicity watch ''Series/DoctorWho'', but there have been multiple actors from the latter that have appeared in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' and its various spin offs, such as Creator/AlexKingston, Creator/JohnBarrowman, and Creator/ArthurDarvill.
** ''Series/TheFlash2014'': In the Pilot, Cisco Ramon wears a 'Bazinga' shirt, which must mean that ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' exists in this universe. The comic book of Flash is discussed several times in TBBT, but Cisco doesn't seem to acknowledge it.
*** Star Wars exists in the show, as referenced by Cisco and a ''Franchise/StarWars'' themed trivia night team, yet no one notices [[Creator/MarkHamill James Jesse]], the Trickster, looks like Luke Skywalker.
*** Jay Jackson is unimpressed by nerdy old white guy Professor Stein and sarcastically says he can put on the ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' soundtrack for him. Stein is played by Victor Garber, who played the Titanic's chief designer Thomas Andrews in the film. Interestingly, ''Legends of Tomorrow'' also does a similar reference without the paradox element, as it's talking about the real ship.
*** Cisco also quips "Literature/SoLongAndThanksForAllTheFish" at one point, a book written by Creator/DouglasAdams, who also wrote for ''Series/DoctorWho''. Series/LegendsOfTomorrow also takes place in the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}, and stars, you guessed it, Creator/ArthurDarvill, formerly DW Companion Rory Pond, as another time traveler, Rip Hunter.
*** ''Series/LawAndOrder'' is mentioned as existing in the Arrowverse. Jessie Martin, who was on the show for years as Detective Joe Green, is a main cast member on ''Flash'' as [[ActorAllusion Detective]] Joe West.
** ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'': Ray has been mentioned to be a ''Series/DoctorWho'' fan, yet didn't pass comment on Rip being a time traveller bearing a striking resemblance to Rory Pond.
** In ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'':
*** Kara and Alex are fans of ''Series/{{Homeland}}''. David Harewood played David Estes, the Director of the CIA's Counterterrorism Center, on ''Homeland'', but also plays DEO Director Hank Henshaw on Supergirl. Melissa Benoist herself also appeared in an early episode of ''Homeland''.
*** In the episode ''"Solitude"'', as Siobhan struggles to clear a paper jam from a copier, Winn remarks that she looks like she's recreating a scene from ''Film/OfficeSpace''. Presumably, this version of ''Office Space'' does not contain a reference to ''Film/SupermanIII''.
*** In the ''Supergirl''/''The Flash'' crossover episode, Cat comments on Kara, Barry, James, and Winn looking like the diverse cast of a CW show. Guess which network airs ''Series/TheFlash2014''? Of course, in this case, the shows are established as taking place in parallel worlds (in fact, Barry has never heard of Supergirl or aliens being real, while Kara has never heard of the Earth 1 heroes the Flash, Green Arrow, Black Canary, and Firestorm, or the Earth 2 villain Zoom).
*** In "Myriad", Cat turns down an offscreen date offer from Harrison Ford, saying she doesn't date either older men or married ones. Which implies that both Cat and Calista Flockhart (who plays her) exist in the same universe.



** We're treated to an interesting take of this in the Summer Glau episode. Sheldon speculates that if Skynet were real, then the best strategy would be for them to copy and impersonate actors who have played Terminators on film.
** In a season 1 episode, the characters have a discussion about how Mayim Bialik and Danica [=McKellar=] are serious academics as well as actresses. It would've been weird enough if just one of them had shown up later in the series, but ''both'' actresses would end up playing fictional guest parts in season 3, and Bialik's character Amy has since become one of the show's main characters.

** At least Leonard and Sheldon are fans of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', but they don't notice that the FBI agent who does Howard's background check looks a lot like Eliza Dushku.
** As mentioned above in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', the show appears in Season 7 and Mark Harmon is mentioned, but in Season 12 of NCIS, an episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' plays in the episode "Parental Guidance Suggested." Hence, [[MutuallyFictional the shows exist in each other's universe]], which means NCIS exists within The Big Bang Theory, which exists within NCIS, which exists within The Big Bang Theory, etc....

** ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' was mentioned late in the series' run, but Sheldon's former roommate was played by Creator/StevenYeun.



** Cyndi Lauper appeared in a fifth season ep, "The Harbingers In The Fountain" as Avalon, Angela's tarot card reader. In Season 3, Brennan admitted that she was fond of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", and even sang it on-stage. Years later, Avalon would return the favor [[spoiler: by singing Etta James' "At Last" at Booth and Brennan's wedding.]]

** In "Rabid Dog", notice that there is a ''{{Series/Deadwood}}'' DVD is among the visible items on a shelf in Hank's house. Surely Hank notices that his sister-in-law looks a lot like Martha Bullock (both were played by Anna Gunn)? The same episode mentions ''Series/BabylonFive'', which Bryan Cranston (who plays Walter White) played a small part as Ranger Captain Ericsson in the episode "The Long Night". Not only that, but Jim Beaver, who has a medium-sized role on that show, appears in both ''Breaking Bad'' and ''Better Call Saul'' as Lawson, an arms dealer that Mike, and later Walt, solicit for weapons.

** As shown in the set tour DVD bonus feature, there are some ''X-Files'' DVD's in Walt Jr's bedroom, implying that the two series' creator ''Creator/VinceGilligan'' himself exists in ''Breaking Bad''land. Not only that, but several members of the cast have appeared in the ''X-Files'', including Bryan Cranston, in the episode "Drive". Dean Norris (Hank) incidentally appeared in a different ''X-Files'' episode.

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''
** In one episode, Jerome Whitaker makes a reference to his actor Creator/JohnLithgow's character from ''Film/{{Footloose}}''. ("I'm sorry, Mr. Small-Town Preacher, is there a law against dancing?")
** In a sixth season episode, a gullible character talks about getting a part on ''Series/{{Lost}}'', yet a few episodes earlier, we met a friend of the group nicknamed "The Blitz" played by Creator/JorgeGarcia.
** In the season 2 finale, Marshall mentions he finds bald guys cool like Music/BritneySpears. Britney plays Stella's assistant for two episodes in Season 3.
** During the show's fifth season, Ted and his GirlOfTheWeek played by Creator/JudyGreer watches a movie titled Film/TheWeddingBride. Said [[ShowWithInAShow film]] stars Creator/MalinAkerman, whom Greer co-starred in ''[[Film/TwentySevenDresses 27 Dresses]]'' about two years before and co-starred with Creator/JoshRadnor himself in ''Film/{{Happythankyoumoreplease}}'' just a few months earlier.
** The show also had [[Series/ProjectRunway Tim Gunn]] AsHimself playing Barney's personal tailor. Creator/NeilPatrickHarris headlines ''Film/TheSmurfs'' movie which also included Gunn. Further, Harris' wife in said film is played by Creator/JaymaMays, while Smurfette is voiced by Music/KatyPerry. Both women guested as a GirlOfTheWeek in seasons one and six respectively.
** The show occasionally makes a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/StarWars''. Starting 2012 (around the show's seventh/eight season), Creator/CobieSmulders starts appearing in the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' and frequently appears with Creator/SamuelLJackson, who played Mace Windu. Also staring the fifth season, Creator/HaydenChristensen's (Anakin Skywalker) wife Creator/RachelBilson becomes a RecurringCharacter.
** Much like ''Franchise/StarWars'', the show also makes occasional ''Franchise/StarTrek'' references. Marshall's mother is played by Creator/SuziePlakson, who was not only a mainstay on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', but was one of the franchise's resident [[YouAllLookFamiliar "hat-trick" actors]]. Also, Ted's LoveInterest in season six is played by Creator/JenniferMorrison, who played Captain Kirk's mother in the [[Film/StarTrek film]] [[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness reboots]]. Additionally, Kirk's father is played by Creator/ChrisHemsworth, one of Smulders' co-stars in the aforementioned ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse''.
** Lily mentions that her female celebrity crush is Creator/MilaKunis. It's not mentioned if she's ever seen ''Film/ForgettingSarahMarshall'', a movie where Kunis plays opposite to Creator/JasonSegel, who plays Lily's husband Marshall. Also Ted's OnAgainOffAgainGirlfriend Karen, whom Lily despises so much, is played by Kunis' ''Series/That70sShow'' co-star Creator/LauraPrepon.
*** How is this second one a Celebrity Paradox?
** In a season 8 episode, Mickey Aldrin mentions his plans to watch ''Series/BreakingBad''. Creator/BryanCranston, who plays Walter White, appeared as Ted's boss in Season 2. Creator/BobOdenkirk, who played Saul Goodman on the same show, also appeared as Marshall's boss a few seasons earlier.
** In the summer of 2011, it was discovered that reruns of the show contained retroactive product placement - ads for timely 2011 products inserted into old episodes. This included a scene where Marshall [[http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/07/07/how-i-met-your-mother-reruns-bad-teacher-zookeeper/ stood in front of an ad]] for ''Film/BadTeacher'', a film starring Creator/JasonSegel.
