* On one episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' Stabler's pregnant wife was involved in an automobile accident and a good portion of the episode involved her being extracted from the wrecked car. The NYFD firefighters who responded were real and, aside from a minor variations for drama purposes (such as allowing Benson to go into the car to assist instead of a firefighter or paramedic), did exactly what they would do in a real vehicle extraction.

** In addition to the lead actors who were trained on horses, and numerous digital extras, the Riders of Rohan were portrayed by regular horse riders from all across New Zealand who came with their own horses to act as extras. Amusingly, most of them [[AllGirlsLikePonies were women]], leading to a lot of Rohirrim with painted-on beards (and making Eowyn's SweetPollyOliver routine a lot less remarkable).
** For ''The Return of the King'', The New Zealand Army provided extras for the final battle in front of the Black Gate. This was made necessary because the Black Gate scenes were filmed on an abandoned minefield. Behind the scenes commentary on the DVD's makes note of how good these extras were at following directions and setting up formations, and how much enthusiasm they brought to the combat scenes. This led to a notable ThrowItIn moment, after some of the Maori stuntmen started chanting a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haka haka]] to get the extras pumped up, and Peter Jackson got the idea to have the orcs do a war chant.

* In ''Film/IronMan3'', the crew of the Air Force One was played by an actual skydiving crew; so, the scene where they are all ThrownOutTheAirlock following the President's kidnapping and saved by [[spoiler:a remote-controlled]] Iron Man [[spoiler:suit]] is basically an elaborate (and pretty risky, as the last one is pretty close to hitting the water when he's saved) skydiving stunt.
