Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: O'Brien was originally a background actor with some lines on ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'' but he kept coming back and became a more and more prominent recurring character until becoming a full-blown series regular aboard ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]]''.

* HeyItsThatGuy: In part due to his Irish heritage, he's appeared in a lot of British flicks like ''LayerCake'' and ''Literature/TheDamnedUnited''.
** His Irish heritage also guarantees him bit parts in films about historic New York like ''Film/FarAndAway'', among others.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainErsatz: A very strange example in that he played the father of the family in all three adaptations of Roddy Doyle's ''Barrytown Trilogy''. Due to licensing issues, the characters from ''Film/TheCommitments'' were not allowed to be used for ''Film/TheSnapper'', so the family was changed. The same thing happened again for ''The Van'', making his character in that film a CaptainErsatz [[UpToEleven of a]] CaptainErsatz.
