* Creator/RonPerlman lobbied for the lead role in ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' because he wouldn't get to play the romantic lead in a ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast'' story again. Plus he would get to kiss a woman half his age. He also appreciated the movie (and director Guillermo Del Toro, with whom he had worked in ''Blade II'') as well.

** Creator/BillNighy likewise signed on as Rufus Scrimgeor (despite the role amounting to only about ten minutes of screen time) because he didn't want to be the only actor in Britain who hadn't been in a ''Harry Potter'' movie.

** Scott Bakula stated that, when first approached for ''Enterpise'', he was reluctant, because he had no interest in just being "The next Captain." Then he found out it was a prequel series; he wasn't going to be the ''next'' Captain. He was going to be the ''first'' Captain. That sealed the deal.

* A lot of ''Series/OnceUponATime'' cast members sign on because they were either fans of the show, or huge Disney fans. ** Creator/RebeccaMader was a huge fan of the show and had hoped to be cast as [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]. While that role went to Joanna Garcia, Rebecca claims she screamed in public when she was offered the part of Zelena ([[spoiler: The Wicked Witch of the West]]). ** Merrin Dungey recalls being terrified by Ursula the sea witch as a child, so she jumped at the chance to play her. She describes immediately agreeing to move to Vancouver to film, and dye her hair blonde for the role. ** Ginnifer Goodwin's favourite Franchise/DisneyPrincess was Snow White and she had always wanted to play her. The part was written with her in mind. ** Georgina Haig had a reaction like this when she first signed on to play [[{{Disney/Frozen}} Elsa]]. She describes walking around in the costume as "like being Santa Claus." * Pretty much all the cast members from ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' did everything that was asked of them - going through a ten day gruelling boot camp in preparation, relocating to England for nine months and shooting long days - because they got to work with Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks. * ''Series/TinMan'': ** Zooey Deschanel had idolised ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' ever since she was two and longed to play Dorothy in some way. Naturally she jumped at the chance to play DG [[spoiler: Dorothy's descendant]]. ** Creator/NealMcDonough signed on after reading the script and seeing the opportunity to play a "Gary Cooper, ''Film/HighNoon''-ish character". He cites Wyatt Cain as his favourite role, after Buck Compton in ''Band of Brothers''. * Nicole Munoz says she does a lot of sci-fi roles because she loves the opportunity to play such diverse characters. She's so far had [[Series/StargateAtlantis magic powers]], [[Series/HemlockGrove been a werewolf]], [[{{Series/Defiance}} married an alien]] and [[Series/OnceUponATime been Maleficent's daughter]].

** This was ''almost'' inverted by Channing Tatum, who was skeptical of signing on to the film because he thought it would be a pro-war, gung-ho propaganda piece. Then he read the script and [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing realized that it was none of that,]] and this trope was played straight.

Many years later he confessed that he was forced to do the film due to a contract he signed with Paramount and he'd have been sued if he tried to back out.

* When it was announced that a ''[[Film/FantasticFour2005 Fantastic Four]]'' film was in the works, Creator/MichaelChiklis was the first man in line to audition. His anecdote was that, when casting was announced, he walked up to Creator/StanLee and introduced himself as Ben Grimm.

He even learned to talk through the heavy prosthetics and fake teeth even though the director said that he could ADR his lines because he felt that being able to perform his part live would better convey the character's pain. His anecdote was that, when casting was announced, he walked up to Creator/StanLee and introduced himself as Ben Grimm.
