* ''Film/WonderWoman2017'': Many of the Amazon extras are normally martial artists, boxers, equestrians, or track-and-field athletes. Creator/GalGadot herself is a former Israeli Defense Forces soldier. Ann Wolfe (Artemis), arguably the greatest female boxer of all time, was brought on by Patty Jenkins because of her real-life expertise. In Jenkins' words, "Who else should be one of the greatest warrior Amazons, but the best female boxer in history?"

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' regularly casts martial artists and gymnasts in the main roles (frequently, the audition sheets will say that martial arts, gymnastics, or dance is a ''huge'' advantage toward getting the part). It also goes a long way in the other direction as well, [[TheCastShowOff often tailoring the character to the actress]]. Amy Jo Johnson was a gymnast, so was Kimberly. Nakia Burrise was a singer, so was Tanya. Catherine Sutherland was a dancer, so Kat was switched from a diver to a ballerina.

** Most of the prostitutes are played by porn actresses, since they're well-versed in having sex on-camera and they don't have any problem with doing the show's [[{{Sexposition}} notorious excessive nudity]]. Esme Bianco, who played Ros, one of the few prostitutes given characterization, is a burlesque performer.
** WorldsStrongestMan Gregor Clegane was played ([[TheOtherDarrin in his third iteration]]) by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hafthor_Julius_Bjornsson Hafþór Björnsson]], top contender for real life strongest man in the world.

** In ''Fury Road'', according to the art book, most of the Rock Riders were played by professional motocross riders rather than film stunt artists, for their specialized talents.
