* In ''Series/{{Smash}}'', this is how Derek normally operates. He hints Karen should sleep with him so she gets the part of Marilyn Monroe in the musical, but she rejects him. Its implied that Derek gave Ivy the role because she slept with and later has a relationship with him.

Its implied that Derek gave Ivy the role because she slept with and later has a relationship with him. In season 2 this trope backfires on him when an actress sues him for sexual harassment and multiple other woman come forward to accuse him of doing the same to them. He settles the lawsuit but it permanently damages his career as a director since in the futures few productions will risk giving him any power over casting.

*** Nadine also remains blissfully ignorant of the fact that Eloise is also blatantly using ''her'' the same way. She thinks that Eloise is with her purely out of love, but the fact that she's a DaddysGirl who can ask her rich and influential father to give Eloise modelling gigs is undoubtedly the main reason Eloise started dating her in the first place. Whether or not Eloise ''also'' has genuine feelings for Nadine or whether she's just faking it is unclear. [[FauxYay She might even be straight for all the reader knows at this point]].

It's ambiguous throughout the movie whether he's actually trying to extort sex from her in exchange for the lead role in SwanLake, or if he's [[EnforcedMethodActing just trying to loosen her up for the role.]]

* [[WebVideo/DemoReel Donnie DuPre]] is implied to have done this on occasion less for a shot at further stardom and more to feed himself. Given he was an orphaned ex-child star in Hollywood, this comes with a fair share of FridgeHorror.
