Added DiffLines:

* Creator/TimAllen's latest sitcom ''Series/LastManStanding'' frequently has guest appearances from ''Series/HomeImprovement'' actors, always with a healthy does of self-awareness.
** Richard Karn (Al) as Bill MacKensie in "Attractive Architect," who mistakenly remembers Mike having three sons.
** Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Randy) has a recurring role John Baker, who Mike really likes and even notes that affectionately calling him "son" feels right.
** Patricia Richardson (Jill) as Helen Potts, a recently widowed neighbor who causes problems by working with loud power tools early in the morning and makes jokes about how poor a handy man her husband was.
** Blake Clark (Harry Turner) appeared as the owner of the music club where Eve performed during an open mic night. Unlike the others, there weren't any jokes regarding his previous role.

*** BruceWillis also appeared for a guest run, free of charge, after losing a bet to Matthew Perry on the set of their film ''The Whole Nine Yards''. Similarly, Willis's character intimidates Chandler a bit (although moreso Ross, who's dating the daughter of Willis's role) just like in the movie.
* With LampshadeHanging, Michael J. Fox's last episode of ''SpinCity'' began with him complaining over the phone to his therapist for sending him to meet with a substitute. He says, "You're almost like a father to me. How am I supposed to have that with some new guy?" and in walks the substitute therapist, played by Michael Gross, who played Michael J. Fox's father in ''Series/FamilyTies''.

* ''MetalGearSolid4'': In the Japanese dub, Snake is voiced by AkioOhtsuka. When [[spoiler: the older Big Boss, who Snake was cloned from, appears at the very end of the game]], he was voiced by Akio's real-life father Chikao Ohtsuka.
* In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series Female Shepard and Ashley Williams are voiced by Creator/JenniferHale and Kimberly Brooks. The two have worked together as partners before... specifically band-mates Thorn and Luna from the various ''ScoobyDoo'' movies and shows. This makes it all the more funnier if you have a female Shepard and always include Ashley in your squad and then turn the Hex Girls song on while playing.
