* On ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' the Russo family is said to be Mexican-Italian. The only one of the children to be of Mexican-Italian ethnicity is Music/SelenaGomez.

Of course, Jerry, the father, is of Italian descent, just like his actor David DeLuise.

* Michael "Dauber" Dybynski from ''Series/{{Coach}}'' was a former college football player who took a ridiculously long time to graduate.

He got into college on a football scholarship, but switched his focus to theater after [[CareerEndingInjury he injured his knee]] during his second year.

Added DiffLines:

** Similar to the trombone, Beverly Crusher's dancing skill is mentioned once or twice, and she has an impressive dance-off with Data in the episode "Data's Day". In fact, Creator/GatesMcFadden is a professional dancer, with several choreography credits on Creator/JimHenson films.
** Creator/PatrickStewart shares several traits with Captain Picard. Deep knowledge and love of Shakespeare is an obvious one. Less well-known is that Stewart's fondness for Creator/RaymondChandler stories helped to create the "Dixon Hill" meta-character.
