** Hans Conried as both Captain Hook and Mr. Darling in ''Disney/PeterPan''. Not only did he voice both characters, he modeled for them as well. This was one of the few things that the film had in common with the original stage play.
*** Also, in the same film, Bobby Driscoll as Peter Pan himself and Kathryn Beaumont as Wendy.

play. Also, in the same film, Bobby Driscoll as Peter Pan himself and Kathryn Beaumont as Wendy.



*** Season 4 of ''Series/OnceUponATime'' became a lengthy crossover with ''Frozen'', showing off flashbacks that expand on the backstory surrounding Anna and Elsa's parents and also Anna and Elsa's relationship following the events of the movie. Because it's live action, this trope is weirdly inverted in ''OUAT'': Georgina Haig is a physical dead ringer for Elsa's animated counterpart. Elsa is a noticeable standout, but the actors who play Anna (Elizabeth Lail), Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) and Hans (Tyler Jacob Moore) also bear great resemblance to their animated counterparts in both physical appearance and costume compared to the rest of the ''OUAT'' cast.
** In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', JeremyIrons was pleased that he could [[http://www.jeremy-irons.com/press/archive/18.html "see himself"]] in Scar, as animator Andreas Deja watched Irons' movies to incorporate his tics and mannerisms, and the lion's baggy eyes made Scar even closer to the original.
*** Despite being a Toucan, Zazu is ''immediately'' recognizable as RowanAtkinson.

** Xanatos looks enough like voice actor Jonathan Frakes that they could've conceivably cast him in the role in a live action adaptation and not missed a beat.

* In ''Film/{{Elf}}'', Leon the Snowman is literally his voice actor Leon Redbone in the form of a snowman, complete with "[his] walking stick".

** Three Muppet folk singers who appeared in skits on talk shows and the first season were Foam Suit Actor versions of Creator/JimHenson, Frank Oz and Jerry Juhl. In one talk show appearance, the puppeteers wore identical outfits for the interview afterwards.
** In the first couple episodes, the human guest stars were presented with Muppet version of themselves for the closing good-bye. This practice was quickly dropped, possibly due to expense, possibly due to it being slightly creepy.

** Asami Sato is exactly a cartoon version of actress Seychelle Gabriel (which is funny if you remember her actress played the [[Film/TheLastAirbender live action version]] of Yue, the animated character she looks nothing like)
** Kuvira looks freakishly like actress Creator/ZeldaWilliams, all except for the beauty mark on her cheek -- but Williams has noted in interviews that her mom has a mark just like that in the same spot. It's surprising to find this is unintentional, given that [[Creator/RobinWilliams her father]] is basically the TropeCodifier.

* ''BrutalLegend'': Eddie Riggs in was deliberately designed to look a bit like Creator/JackBlack, even before it was a done deal that Black was playing him. There's also Music/OzzyOsbourne as the Guardian of Metal, Lemmy as the Kill Master, [[Music/JudasPriest Rob Halford]] as The Fire Baron, Brian Posehn as the Hunter, and Kyle Gass as the neurotic cannoneer.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'' Lisa's characters in her online erotic BDSM writings are clearly based on her and Ally. This causes problems when Lisa decides the logical way to introduce her new friend to the ideas of the scene is to link her to her bibliography. LoveTriangle tropes ensue. It gets even worse when Lisa explicitly writes Anne into the story.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' does this a ''lot''. Examples: Fred Rogers as an aardvark (or as close to one as the Reads are), [[Music/SimonAndGarfunkel Art Garfunkel]] as a moose, Yo-Yo Ma as a rabbit.
