* ''Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater'' 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}}''.

An actor can use this self-consciously for themselves for AdamWesting. Compare with PlayingAgainstType, where the casting may feel like a joke for the wrong reasons. Contrast with StuntCasting where the big name actor is not being used for any in-joke but as a piece of marketing to draw in a wider crowd. When the Casting Gag is specifically that the person cast is an Actor Allusion for an already established character, it's IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine. If the gag is that the character being played is untalented in something the actor excels in, then its IronyAsSheIsCast. If the Casting Gag is that the actor appeared in an earlier version of the same story, it's a RemakeCameo. Compare also to CastTheExpert.
