*** This is actually pretty common on ''South Park''. [[HappyDays Henry Winkler]] performed the growlings of a monster; Jay Leno voiced the meows of Cartman's cat, and Creator/GeorgeClooney said "bark bark" as Stan's gay dog.

* Frank Kelly, who played Father Jack Hackett in ''FatherTed'', was a trained stage actor, whose lines were limited to saying 'Feck' and 'Girls' whereas the two leads were stand-up comedians. Frank Kelly would often mutter "feckin' amateurs" during takes.

* Similar to the above Shizuma Hodoshima example, Satoshi Hashimoto is a somewhat prolific actor in most fields of entertainment, ranging from stage plays (The Engineer in ''MissSaigon'', Jean Valjean in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'') to live-action movies to TV dramas. However the role that is most synonymous with this name is none other than [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard]], the [[{{Mascot}} face]] of {{SNK}} and probably the most [[FountainOfMemes memetastic]] character in ''all of fighting game history''. [[TheOtherDarrin Up until]] ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters XII'', [[TalkingToHimself he also voiced]] fellow ''Fatal Fury'' alum Kim Kaphwan. Also, did you know that [[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise he led the Autobots on one occasion?]]
* While not being a Shakespearian actress per se, Creator/JunkoTakeuchi (of Manga/{{Naruto}}'s fame) is also a classical trained stage actress and former ''ballerina.'' according [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interview/2011-11-01/interview-junko-takeuchi in a recent interview.]] And yes, just like everyone else (both in and out-universe) she also agrees that Naruto is an ''annoying brat'' at first.
* While not classically trained, Graham Chapman was a very intelligent (he was a fully-qualified MD and deadly serious about it[[note]]he not only maintained his license but would also treat cast and crew for various ailments and injuries during production[[/note]]) and talented actor whose straight laced persona was used to hilarious effect for [[TheStraightMan Straight Man]] roles. The other Pythons considered him the best and chose him for the lead roles in ''Holy Grail'' and ''Life of Brian''.

* Creator/AlecBaldwin, who once wrote a 65 page thesis on method acting, was in the nineties considered one of the best dramatic actors around, mainly due to roles in ''Film/{{Malice}}'' and - most famously - ''Theatre/GlengarryGlenRoss''. He is best known now for playing Jack on the sitcom ''Series/ThirtyRock''. Subverted in that he is not only enormously acclaimed for it, but has spoken positively about it on numerous occasions.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/IanMcShane, a highly respected actor with a long history of prestigious roles, joined the monster hit fantasy series ''Series/GameOfThrones'' at age 73 purely for the chance to work with his old friends Charles Dance and Stephen Dillane. Trouble is, his disdain for the show had kept him from learning that their characters had both been killed off, and upon discovering this he came very close to walking off on the job until he figured it was only going to be one episode anyway. He promptly set about making his hatred for the show and all its fans abundantly clear in all pieces of promotion for it, including the memetic line "Get a fucking life, it's just tits and dragons." Though rather awesomely, none of this has actually appeared to have the slightest impact on the fans themselves, who are still just thrilled that he's finally making an appearance after long being pegged as a perfect fit for the show.

* Real world inversion: Creator/PatrickStewart was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company before he went on to play Picard in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. He reportedly considered it good practice. (He did dip his toes into science fiction with the Creator/DavidLynch adaptation of ''Film/{{Dune}}''.)

* Averted with Creator/AlanRickman who, while a very acclaimed stage actor who has turned down film roles to focus on theater, gets equal praise for film roles and thoroughly enjoys being able to play characters like Snape and Hans Gruber. He liked ''Film/ChasingAmy'' so much that he sought out a role in Creator/KevinSmith's next film, ''{{Dogma}}''.
* In ''HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'', Andre Braugher, Creator/ReedDiamond and Yaphet Kotto were all professional actors, with Braugher and Diamond both having attended Julliard. Subverted in that they were not only massively acclaimed, but ''Homicide'' is cited as one of the best acted shows on television.

* Gemma Arterton feels this for ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans''. She refused to sign on to the sequel, and her character, Io, got killed off. However, she rather enjoyed making ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' and ''Film/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime''.
