* This is why James Woods agreed to play Hades in ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' and all of its various spinoffs. He's gone on record as it being the one role he would agree to play again anytime, anywhere. (And he has, to this day, played that character every time he has appeared, with only one exception: House of Villians, voiced by Rob Paulson.)

Added DiffLines:

* Almost subverting this, Creator/IanMcShane repeatedly turned down invitations to join the cast of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' because he didn't think much of being on a fantasy TV series. However, he eventually accepted because he thought it would be an opportunity to work with actors he respected, like Charles Dance and Stephen Dillane. When he got there and learned that [[spoiler: both their characters had been killed, and thus neither actor was on the show anymore]], he almost backed out.

Added DiffLines:

* Susan Sarandon provides the voice of the [[NeverMessWithGranny extremely dangerous]] Granny Rags in the game ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''. Sarandon later explained that she took the part because she was impressed by the fact that players could choose to complete the game with a ThouShaltNotKill philosophy and still succeed.

* Creator/ViolaDavis has said this was her reason for agreeing to play Amanda Waller in ''Film/SuicideSquad''. She was a fan of Franchise/WonderWoman as a child, and thus thought it'd be cool to play a Creator/DCComics superhero (well, AntiHero).

* Wrestling/DustyRhodes' WWF run. The one where he wore polka dots. While most fans consider it one of the low points of his career, Dusty himself had a lot of fun with the gimmick. It helped that it was one of the few times that Dusty, who was previously a long-time booker of Jim Crockett Promotions, didn't have to worry about booking or running a promotion, allowing him to just relax and enjoy wrestling.

Added DiffLines:

* Burt Lancaster eventually took the role of Happer in ''Film/LocalHero'' because he wanted a comedic role for once in his career. His salary was still non-negotiable, though.

* Creator/HelenMirren loved working on ''Film/{{Red}}'' so much, thanks to the action-heavy role she had in the film, that she said "I'm there!" to any planned sequel. And she did indeed return for ''Red 2''.

And she did indeed return for ''Red 2''. She later revealed that she really wanted to star in the ''Franchise/TheFastAndTheFurious'' franchise, purely because it looked like so much fun. And sure enough, she was later cast in the eighth film.


Added DiffLines:

* Salma Hayek joked that she starred in ''Tale Of Tales'' purely because she got to play a Queen, which doesn't happen a lot when one is Mexican.
--> "The closest I ever got was playing the queen of a drug cartel in ''Savages''."
* Daniel Day Lewis had been planning to take a year's hiatus from acting when he heard about the film version of ''{{Theatre/Nine}}''. He sent director Rob Marshall a tape of him singing, and he was immediately cast as the lead. Marshall later said he didn't offer him the part initially because he never imagined he'd say yes.
