* Similar to James Woods as Hades, John De Lancie has yet to pass up the opportunity to reprise his role as Discord on ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. According to him, he agreed to voice the character for his debut two-part episode but asked to be left uncredited since he thought it would be a one-and-done voice acting gig that few people would take much notice of, but after the episodes aired he received a ton of fan mail all praising his performance as Discord and wondering if Discord was due for any reappearances - and by that point, ''he'd forgotten having ever been on "My Little Pony" to begin with.'' Once he found out how big a deal the show and his character was to many fans, he himself began to take the matter more seriously and has since then immensely enjoyed coming back to voice Discord any time the character is featured in an episode.

** Ben Browder took his role in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy A Town Called Mercy]]" not just because his kids watched the show but because he always wanted to do a western. It probably also helped that they [[VacationDearBoy filmed the episode in Spain.]]

* This is part of the reason why Creator/PaulVerhoeven did ''Film/RoboCop1987''. He initially rejected the opportunity to direct the film when he read the script and thought it was silly and stupid. He changed his mind when his wife convinced him that there were more layers to the story than he initially thought, and because the writers pointed out the amount of {{Gorn}} there was, to which he responded "Well, I've never seen the hero [[{{Fingore}} get his hand blown off]]!"

* ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'':
** ''Film/{{Aliens}}'': Creator/SigourneyWeaver had turned down offers to do sequels to ''Alien'' for years, afraid of {{Sequelitis}}. However once she saw the script - particularly the motherly bond between Ripley and Newt - she signed on immediately.

Creator/WinonaRyder has said that she took the role in ''Film/AlienResurrection'' this before even reading the script, because she had always wanted to be in an ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' ''Alien'' movie and could brag about it to her brothers.brothers. She joked that she'd still do it even if she was killed off in the first scene. She also jumped at the chance to appear alongside her idol Creator/SigourneyWeaver.
*** Creator/SigourneyWeaver was reluctant to do a fourth movie, after the rather final ending of the third. However, when she read the script, the scene where Ripley sees the seven failed attempts at cloning her was enough to make her sign on. But she also gave other reasons:
