* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': The presence of any actor from a previous ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' series, Creator/ChristopherReeve, Dean Cain, etc. There was also [[TheDukesOfHazzard Tom Wopat]] turbing up as an ActorAllusion to John Schneider but the one that takes the biscuit is the (possible unintentional) casting of Annette O'Toole, Lana Lang in ''Film/SupermanIII'', as Martha Kent (though the crew didn't actually know about her former role when she was cast).

->''"For many years, Creator/SammyDavisJr was a member of the Church of Satan. As you might expect, Davis had to keep this whole matter fairly private or else the truth could ruin him. Alternatively, he could opt to straight-up not give a shit and star in the world's first sitcom set in {{Hell}}. Davis chose the latter path and took the lead role in a pilot called ''Poor Devil'', also starring [[Creastor/AdamWest Adam]] "[[Series/{{Batman}} Batman]]" [[Creator/AdamWest West]] and [[Creator/ChristopherLee Christopher]] [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings motherfuckin' Saruman]] [[Creator/ChristopherLee Lee]] as [[{{Satan}] Lucifer]]! That the show isn't still on today is undeniable proof that the Nielsen ratings system is rigged."''

* * ''Film/{{Halloween: H20}}'' has a great example. It has Janet Leigh, most famous for her role in ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', in a small role as a school secretary. She is working for the head of the school played by Jamie Lee Curtis. Leigh is Curtis' real-life mother. Leigh turns to Curtis and says, "If I may be maternal for a moment..." as the camera pulls back to reveal Leigh's car. The car is the same one she drove in ''Film/{{Psycho}}''.
