* Seems to be a pretty common occurrence in the''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' universe. In one particular bizare case, the guy who played Vizzini in The Princesss Bride (who is human) plays the role of Bojack (who is a horse) while in the same film Bojack plays the role of Mr Peanut Butter (who is a dog). Andrew Garfield is also considered the role for a horse at one point with the characters in universe almost quoting this page.

* Similarly, Valkyrie is a white blonde in the comics, but in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', she is portrayed by Creator/TessaThompson, who is black. Director Creator/TaikaWaititi said he was aware that some of the more hardcore fans might take umbrage with her casting, but insisted that she gave the strongest audition of all the actresses who read for the part.

* From the Netflix adaptation of ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'', while Creator/VincentDOnofrio passed pretty well for the role of Wilson Fisk, he's still not nearly as big as [[ComicBook/TheKingpin Fisk]] is usually depicted as, and didn't fit the physique as much as the late Creator/MichaelClarkeDuncan. But his performance was so complex and layered, and brought such a fresh interpretation of the character into both a terrifying and surprisingly sympathetic villain, that critics and audiences didn't mind at all.

* Former WWE Diva Ivory said that in her opinion, it's far easier to find a female wrestler with good ability and ''then'' make her ProgressivelyPrettier to fit the required for the 'WWE look' - than to find someone with the right look and try and teach them the ability.

** Conversely, the role of Deanna Troi was supposed to be a voluptuous blonde, but the part was given to Marina Sirtis. Essentially, Denise Crosby and Marina Sirtis traded roles.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' deals with Langdon Cobb, an actor who always wears a paper bag over his face. Despite wearing the bag, he's considered one of the best actors in the known universe and the only way a rival could conceive to try to best Cobb was by actually committing suicide during a re-enactment of Romeo & Juliet. Cobb is just that good.
