* British actor Peter Serafinowicz loved [[VideoGame/DarkSouls Dark Souls]] to the point he volunteered to voice a character in one of the games. From Software heard and made him the voice of Mild-Mannered Pete in [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsII]].

* 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 not much 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 been immensely enjoying coming back to voice Discord any time the character is featured in an episode.

** Even United States Senators aren't immune to this trope. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) is a lifelong Batman fan, and has cameoed in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' (as the party guest who tells Joker he's not intimidated by thugs like him), ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', and even ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''.

In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', where he also appears, a Michigan senator even asked Leahy to get her a cameo (after all, the movie was being shot in Detroit).



** Jackson barely thought once he was offered ''Film/KongSkullIsland'' - "When they said 'Film/KingKong, we want you', I was like 'Awesome!'" - and co-star Creator/TomHiddleston liked the prospect of an adventure movie "like the ones that we grew up loving as a child".



* ''Creator/CristinaValenzuela'' has said in interviews she finds playing the heroine Marinette in '''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''' to be one of the most enjoyable roles she's done. Mainly because she's been a fan of MagicalGirl series since childhood. In her Ladybug persona, she's a LargeHam who gets to use snarky one-liners and catchphrases that are NarmCharm incarnate.

* 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 Creator/RobPaulsen.)

* Creator/HughGrant retired from acting to work on behind-the-scenes production and political causes; but he came out of retirement to appear in ''Film/FlorenceFosterJenkins'' in part because the opportunity to work opposite Creator/MerylStreep was just too good to pass up.

* Dub voice acting for anime tends to pay less than voice work for western animation. Many anime voice actors, like Creator/KyleHebert, still do it for the love of the craft.

* Dub voice acting for anime tends to pay less than voice work for western animation. Many anime voice actors, like Creator/KyleHebert, still do it for the love of the craft. One of the biggest pieces of early advice newcomers get is to always love what you do, since the job is infamous for its low paygrade.
** the dub cast of '''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''' had a blast playing foul-mouthed, sex-obssessed angels and demons who regularly cause massive property damage. It's also said to be a fun writing process adapting the filthy scripts.
** Many actors new to the scene can be positively ecstatic, as several who do so spend years in fan projects typically with a background in fan dubbing or covering anime songs, so for many it's a dream come true. Juliet Simmons was so overcome with joy when she got the lead role as Chiyo Sakura in '''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun''' she would write in all caps for several days after and couldn't wait to watch the series to see how it turned out.

* A major reason Creator/DouglasHodge signed on to play Willy Wonka in the 2013 West End musical ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' (and gave up the lead role in Cameron Mackintosh's revival of ''Barnum'' in the process) was because he'd never had the chance to participate in the from-the-ground-up creative process of staging a new musical before, and the creators of this one were receptive to his ideas for both his character and the show. (It was his dissatisfaction with his intended introductory song that saved "It Must Be Believed to Be Seen", the Act One finale {{Showstopper}}, from being a CutSong, for instance.)

* Part of why Creator/DwayneJohnson agreed to the role of Maui in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' was the thrill of seeing his Polynesian ancestry so beautifully depicted in a major motion picture, and he admitted to crying over it many, many times during production.
