* Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo has Furuya, who enjoys old-world snacks, uses 80's slang, and does her calculations on an abacus...even her fanservice is old-school. She's played by Creator/FumiHirano, best known as the voice of Lum in the 80's series Creator/UruseiYatsura.
** Speaking of ''Seitokai Yakuindomo'', Creator/MutsumiTamura played Dejima (a maid who was in love with her mistress). She went on to play Kobayashi in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', a woman whose maid is in love with ''her''.

** the [[TheStinger after-credits]]-appearing character ComicBook/NickFury is played by Creator/SamuelLJackson who serves (with his permission) as the model for the appearance and personality of the UltimateMarvel version of Fury. Within the comic ''TheUltimates'' itself, when the team was amusing themselves speculating on who would play them in the movie about their adventures, Fury said that he would of course be played by Samuel L. Jackson. A popular theory is that Jackson agreed to provide his likeness for the Ultimate Universe Nick Fury, with the understanding that if ever there was a movie with Nick Fury, he would get to play the role.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Since ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is often considered a SpiritualAntithesis to ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' it's quite apropos that Ned Stark be played by ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' alumni Creator/SeanBean.
** Creator/NatalieDormer as Margaery, a role quite similar to her turn as Anne Boleyn in ''Series/TheTudors''. Both are beautiful and ambitious young noblewomen of dubious virginity who seek to become queen and have a close bond with their gay brother. Coincidentally, the Tyrell's golden rose sigil is a palette swap of the red-and-white Tudor rose.
** The series' regular audiobook narrator Roy Dotrice was going to play Pycelle, but health concerns forced him into a cameo as Pyromancer Hallyne.
** Before being cast as Stannis Baratheon's GoodAngelBadAngel advisors, Creator/LiamCunningham (Davos) and Creator/CariceVanHouten (Melisandre) played lovers in the 2011 Dutch film ''Black Butterflies''.

** It's pretty common knowledge that Creator/GeorgeLucas was heavily inspired by ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'' when making the Original Trilogy, and that he once wanted to make a film adaptation of ''Flash Gordon'' as his follow-up to ''Film/AmericanGraffiti''; if some accounts are to be believed, in fact, he only made ''Star Wars'' because he couldn't get the rights. It's probably not an accident that [[Film/FlashGordon Ming the Merciless himself]] (Creator/MaxVonSydow) has a small but pivotal role in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' as Lor San Tekka.

** And to really push the joke home, four other actors had been in Bond films (Julian Glover was Bond villain Kristatos in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'', Alison Doody was Bond girl Jenny Flex in ''Film/AViewToAKill'', John Rhys-Davies was Bond ally Pushkin in ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'' (albeit that was after ''Raiders''), and Vernon Dobtcheff (the Brunwald castle butler) was nightclub owner Max Kalba in ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe''. Michael Byrne later played a British naval officer in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies''.
