* Creator/MalcolmMcDowell starred in and helped produce the low-budget Christian film ''Suing the Devil'' because he wanted to play {{Satan}}, and [[HamAndCheese he had a glorious time doing so]]. He also took the role of Tolian Soran in ''Film/StarTrekGeenrations'' [[spoiler:precisely because he'd be playing the man who killed James T. Kirk.]]

** Creator/TomHolland is a big Spider-Man fan, and was absolutely ecstatic when he got the role.



** Creator/TobeyMaguire in the Creator/SamRaimi films had a similar experience. Despite his reputation as a [[{{Bishonen}} scrawny Hollywood pretty-boy]], he pursued the role aggressively, and made a point of [[DyeingForYourArt bulking up and taking stunt training]] just to audition for the role.

* Bela Lugosi's character development in ''Film/EdWood'' is based around shifting from MoneyDearBoy to this. The Thor Johnsson character is this from the start.

* When Creator/CartoonNetwork did an April Fool's joke saying Creator/{{Toonami}} would be revived, Creator/SteveBlum was the one leading the charge to get it brought back for real. Why? Because he ''really'' wanted to voice TOM. The network doesn't have the budget to pay him a salary that even a starving college student would be happy with, but he's having a blast.

* Creator/NeilPatrickHarris is a superhero fan, and as such, has done voices for numerous superhero cartoons, such as ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheNewAnimatedSeries'' (a role he later reprised in ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions''), ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', ''The Golden Blaze'', ''[[ComicBook/DCTheNewFrontier Justice League: The New Frontier]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''. He eventually got his own [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Supervillain]] {{Musical}}.

* Similar to James Woods as Hades, John De Lancie has yet to pass up the opportunity to reprise his role as Discord on ''WesternAnimation/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.

* Deliberately invoked when Creator/SidneyLumet was casting ''[[Film/MurderOnTheOrientExpress1974 Murder on the Orient Express]]''. He thought the best way to assemble an AllStarCast was to hire the biggest star first; at the time, that was Creator/SeanConnery. It worked; Richard Widmark signed on to play [[spoiler:the victim]] for no other reason than to meet the other stars, who by then included Hollywood and West End royalty such as Creator/LaurenBacall, Creator/IngridBergman, Sir John Gielgud, and Creator/AnthonyPerkins.
