* CastTheExpert -- Rather than hiring an actor to portray a professional in some field, they hire someone who actually ''is'' in that field, which gives the performance an additional air of credibility with ShownTheirWork. Martial artists are among the first people chosen to headline action movies, see BruceLee.

* In the film ''Film/{{Targets}}'', Creator/BorisKarloff, a horror icon approaching the end of his career, plays Byron Orlok, a fictional horror icon about to retire who becomes involved when a psycho sniper attacks the audience at a drive-in cinema showing his last film. The film has a strong metafictional element referring to the eclipse of the traditional supernatural horror movie in favour of the more naturalistically disturbing PsychologicalHorror.

** More dramatically, it has [[spoiler:Creator/RobertRedford as, not [[Film/AllThePresidentsMen the unraveler]] this time, but the ''architect'' of a massive (quasi-) government conspiracy. The Watergate Complex is even visible from his office window]].
