* [=USA For Africa=]'s "We Are the World" is one of the most successful charity records, and this record from 1985 -- proceeds of which were used for famine relief in Africa -- has a who's who of musical acts, from all the major genres, involved. Quincy Jones was the conductor, and writers Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson were a prominent part of the chorus. Get a load of who else had solo parts: Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Kenny Rogers, James Ingram, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Willie Nelson, Al Jarreau, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Loggins, Steve Perry (of the band Journey), Daryl Hall, Huey Lewis, Cyndi Lauper, Kim Carnes, Bob Dylan and Ray Charles. And who backed them up? Dan Aykroyd, Harry Belafonte, Lindsey Buckingham (of Fleetwood Mac), Waylon Jennings, Bette Midler, John Oates (Daryl Hall's longtime partner), [=LTD=] lead singer Jeffrey Osborne, Smokey Robinson; and various members of The News (Huey Lewis' backing band), the Jacksons and the Pointer Sisters.

* In 1983, ''Film/TheOutsiders'' was a pretty big deal, what with Creator/CThomasHowell, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Creator/PatrickSwayze, Creator/RobLowe, Emilio Estevez, Creator/TomCruise, Creator/LeifGarrett, Music/TomWaits, a twelve year-old Sofia Coppola, S.E. Hinton herself as a nurse and Diane Lane as Cherry Valance! Though for most of those first 7, it was very early in their careers, so this is much more of a RetroactiveRecognition, but many of them weren't that famous at the time (Howell and Cruise - 2 prior total appearances, bit parts for Swayze). Actually the best known (of the first seven) may have been Macchio for his role in ''Eight is Enough''.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' became probably the best modern use of this. Like Creator/{{Pixar}}, Christopher Nolan was concerned with casting talent over name. It just happened that a lot of the talent cast were seasoned name actors. Scarecrow and Two-Face probably had the least famous actors cast in the major roles (Cillian Murphy and Aaron Eckhart, respectively), but again, it was their talent.

* To most of the world, Baz Luhrman's ''Film/{{Australia}}'' stars Creator/NicoleKidman and Creator/HughJackman, supported by Creator/DavidWenham, Creator/BenMendelsohn and a bunch of nobodies. Inside Australia itself, it is considered an amazing star-studded extravaganza, where even tiny roles are filled by locally-renowned stars such as Creator/BruceSpence and Creator/JohnJarrat.

* Creator/FrancisFordCoppola's ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' does sport an amazing array of big names. Creator/GaryOldman as the Count is just the tip of the iceberg. AnthonyHopkins plays vampire slayer Van Helsing, with WinonaRyder as Mina Harker, and Creator/KeanuReeves as Jonathan Harker (a part that Coppola planned to give Creator/JohnnyDepp before the studio intervened). The supporting cast has Cary Elwes, Music/TomWaits, Creator/RichardEGrant, Billy Campbell, and a brief appearance by a VERY nude Creator/MonicaBellucci.

Actually the best known (of the first seven) may have been Macchio for his role in ''Eight is Enough''.
* The movie adaptation of the musical ''Theatre/{{Nine}}'': The lead male role was originally offered to Javier Bardem, who turned it down and was subsequently replaced by Daniel Day-Lewis, thus providing perhaps the only instances where NOT putting Javier Bardem in your movie was the better choice. It also stars Creator/MarionCotillard, Creator/PenelopeCruz, Creator/JudiDench, Creator/NicoleKidman, Kate Hudson, Sophia Loren, and... Fergie of the Music/BlackEyedPeas.
* The ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' movies certainly count, particularly [[Film/{{Scream 2}} the second one]], which features performances by Jada Pinkett-Smith, Omar Epps, Liev Schreiber, Courteney Cox, [[Creator/SarahMichelleGellar Buffy Summers]] herself, David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Timothy Olyphant, Portia de Rossi, Laurie Metcalf, Jerry O'Connell and of course Jamie Kennedy.

Creator/TerenceStamp has a cameo as General Zod just to set up his role as the primary villain in the second film. Quite a few of these actors have received Oscar nominations and wins.
** This continues into later installments.

* ''Film/WaitingToExhale'', starring Whitney Houston, Music/WhitneyHouston, Lela Rochon, Angela Bassett, Creator/AngelaBassett, and Loretta Devine. Also features Dennis Haysbert, Gregory Hines, and Wesley Snipes Creator/WesleySnipes (in an uncredited role). Also directed by Creator/ForestWhitaker.



* ''Yellowbeard'' (1983), a pirate comedy, had [[Creator/MontyPython Graham Chapman]] in the title role, and a colorful lineup of comic and character actors supporting him: in alphabetical order, Peter Boyle, Creator/CheechAndChong, Creator/JohnCleese, Peter Cook, Marty Feldman, Michael Hordern, Eric Idle, Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars, James Mason, Spike Milligan, and Beryl Reid. ''And'' an unbilled cameo by [[spoiler: Music/DavidBowie]]!
* ''Film/TheFaculty'' provides a strange example. Several of the adult actors were already well-known at the time, including [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]], Creator/RobertPatrick, Creator/SalmaHayek, Creator/FamkeJanssen, Piper Laurie, Creator/BebeNeuwirth, Creator/Christopher/McDonald, and Daniel von Bargen. The students' actors were largely unknown at this point, but many [[RetroactiveRecognition went on to bigger and better things]], such as Creator/ElijahWood, Creator/JoshHartnett, Music/{{Usher}} Raymond, [[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Jordana Brewster]], Clea Duvall, and Creator/LauraHarris.

** The 2007 ''Series/{{Cranford}}'' has Dame Creator/JudiDench, Simon Woods, Michael Gambon, Imelda Staunton, Julia Sawalha, Philip Glenister and Eileen Atkins, not to mention a host of beloved British character actors in supporting roles, among them Emma Fielding, Jim Carter, Deborah Findlay, Barbara Flynn, Greg Wise, and Francesca Annis. ''Return to Cranford'' upped the ante, adding names like Celia Imrie, Creator/TimCurry, Jonathan Pryce, Michelle Dockery, and a pre-''Avengers'' Creator/TomHiddleston.
* ''Series/{{Deadwood}}'' has a pretty blinding cast for a TV show - Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Powers Boothe, John Hawkes, Brad Dourif, Keith Carradine, Jeffrey Jones and Titus Welliver, with Brian Cox, Stephen Tobolowsky and Garret Dillahunt appearing as guest stars.
* ''Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre'' featured many well-known actors and actresses. There's Creator/RobinWilliams, Eric Idle, Paul Reubens, Mick Jagger, Howie Mandel, Peter Weller, Billy Crystal, and Vincent Price, to name a few. Directors of individual episodes included Creator/FrancisFordCoppola and Creator/TimBurton.
* ''Film/MotherGooseRockNRhyme'' is practically filled with name talent, most of them in cameos: Shelley Duvall (the female lead), Cyndi Lauper, Bobby Brown, Woody Harrelson, Little Richard, Howie Mandel, Cheech Marin... In fact, protagonist Gordon seems to be the only major character to be played by a nobody (albeit in a role that was turned down by Jim Varney).
* Casting for ''Series/CriminalMinds'' tends to go this way. In the first two seasons, the cast had the drawing power of noted TV actors Creator/MandyPatinkin, Thomas Gibson and Shemar Moore (well-known in the soap world as Malcolm on ''TheYoungAndTheRestless''). The second season saw the addition of TV veteran Paget Brewster, with the third season seeing Patinkin replaced by Joe Mantegna, with the eighth season seeing Brewster replaced by veteran actress Jeanne Tripplehorn (most famous previously for ''Film/BasicInstinct''). The show has also become a StarMakingRole for Matthew Gray Gubler. A lot of guest stars on the show- especially lately- are name actors, with Creator/WilWheaton, Creator/JasonAlexander, Teri Polo and Michelle Trachtenberg, among others, all making appearances.
* Zig-zagged with ''Series/{{Glee}}''. When the show started most of the main actors were mainly unknown, but as time went on they all became hugely popular. They've been flanked by a respectable supporting cast (mainly musical theatre people) that includes Mike O'Malley, Creator/IdinaMenzel, Creator/NeilPatrickHarris, Carol Burnett, Whoopi Goldberg, Creator/KristinChenoweth, Ken Jeong, Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin.
