** Casting Creator/NatalieDormer as Margaery Tyrell seems like an example of this. Dormer played Anne Boleyn in ''TheTudors''- Anne is a beautiful young woman whose family is involved in court machinations, has a close bond with her gay brother, and ultimately finds herself tried for promiscuity before a KangarooCourt. Margaery is a beautiful young woman whose family is involved in court machinations, has a close bond with her gay brother... (you get the point) This is likely a deliberate choice as Margaery and the Tyrells are a sort of heroic subversion of the type of scheming and debauched royals who get HBO series (i.e. The Boleyns and Margaery's rival Cersei/The Lannister family).

* ''Series/StrangerThings'' is essentially an extended tribute to the cinema and pop culture of TheEighties, with at least one ShoutOut per episode. The {{Shout Out}}s extend to the casting choices. It's definitely not an accident that two of the principal characters are played by Creator/WinonaRyder (best known for playing Veronica in ''Film/{{Heathers}}'' and Lydia Deetz in ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'') and Matthew Modine (best known for playing Private Joker in ''Film/FullMetalJacket''). More subtly, several of the actors playing teenage characters seem to have been chosen--in part--for their resemblance to famous teen actors from the '80s; Shannon Purser (Barb) bears a very strong resemblance to a young Creator/MollyRingwald, Joe Keery (Steve) strongly resembles a young Creator/CharlieSheen, and Natalia Dyer (Nancy) looks a lot like a young Mia Sara.

* ''Series/LivAndMaddie'': The DisneyChannel kidcom is noted for having its lead actress, Creator/DoveCameron, play a [[ActingForTwo dual role]] as the titular identical twin sisters [[PolarOppositeTwins with differing personalities]]. In the 2015 episode, "Grandma-A-Rooney", Patty Duke guest-stars (in what would be her final TV performance) as Liv and Maddie Rooney's Grandma Janice and Great Aunt Hillary, both of whom are identical twins with differing personalities. This is an allusion to Duke's dual role as identical cousins Patty & Cathy Lane in [[Series/ThePattyDukeShow her 1960s sitcom]], which ''Series/LivAndMaddie'' [[SpiritualSuccessor continues in the tradition of]] in many ways.
