* ''Series/HomeImprovement'' played with this in that it wasn't the joke itself, but rather just an excuse for Jill and Wilson (who both had experience playing Juliet) to fight over who would help Randy practice the "Romeo" role.

Jill also mentions having played Othello, to which Randy quips that she was probably [[SarcasmMode a very convincing black man]].

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', of course, is a comedy troupe with both men and women. There have been both male cast members playing female characters (such as {{Dana Carvey}}'s "Church Lady" character) and female cast members playing male characters (such as Rachel Dratch playing Literature/HarryPotter and Creator/AmyPoehler playing Kim Jong Il).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/LivAndMaddie'' featured a broad arc centered on Liv starring in a film adaption of the comic book series ''Space Werewolves''. The protagonist is male, but the producers saw one particular episode of her former show and loved it so much they changed the role into a female just for her.

* One of the Pokestar film in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' has a Pokemon example. The [[spoiler:Ledian]] which fights you with humans from Timegate Travelers saga is referred as female in script, but her sprite is that of a male.

* In ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'', the DistantFinale shows that Tamura's first acting role as an adult is in a play where he plays a female character. He was always in his element [[{{crossdressing}} dressed in female clothes]] as a teenager.

* The infamous Japanese live-action commercial for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' (the one with the rapping) had Link played by a 16-year-old schoolgirl. Due to Link's soft features and slight build, this is actually less jarring than you'd think.

Added DiffLines:

* The lead from ''Film/CatsAndDogs'' is a male puppy played by multiple dogs, both female and male. This isn't uncommon for animal characters, however not much effort was made to disguise this. The puppy noticeably changes sexes between scenes.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'''s last episode before the GrandFinale, the Gaang go and see a play based on the entire series up to that point. In a reference to Peter Pan, they find Aang (the lightly-build, hyperactive twelve-year-old) is played by a petite woman. While Aang (and the rest of the group) is disappointed with the entire portrayal of him, the casting choice is what confuses him the most. On the other hand, Toph (a little blind girl, but BoisterousBruiser and ArrogantKungFuGuy nonetheless) absolutely ''loves'' the fact that her part was played by a giant, muscly man.
