* Most reunions seem to be examples of this trope, but the DeadKennedys' has been a particularly {{egregious}} example due to the band's former anti-corporate stance. The band (minus Jello Biafra) now licenses songs for television commercials.

* When Creator/GerryAnderson asked Robert Vaughn's business partner why Vaughn had signed on to do ''The Protectors'' in the writing, Price replied "Baby, the money's good." Which would explain a lot of his post-''TheManFromUNCLE'' career.

* Mocked on ''[[https://youtu.be/wL9cV0-SuxY Inside Amy Schumer]]'', when Amy is cast in a voice-acting role alongside Creator/JessicaAlba and Creator/MeganFox... only to find out that she's voicing "Dumpy, the Frumpy Meerkat", [[FatBastard who won't even fit into pants]] due to being Japanese-made.

* The TropeNamer is LaurenceOlivier, who was determined to leave a comfortable inheritance to his family, and was more than willing to take unusual roles if they paid well, especially in his later career. The two most striking examples are his portrayals of Zeus in ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' and UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur in Sun Myung Moon's (yes, the Unification Church cult leader) terrible production of ''Inchon'', for which it is said he insisted on his salary being paid weekly in a BriefcaseFullOfMoney delivered by helicopter. He also appeared as a hologram in a terrible RockOpera called ''Time''. Olivier's posthumous performance in ''Film/SkyCaptainAndTheWorldOfTomorrow'' may be the logical extension of this trope.

* In ''LilFormers'', this is Devastator Jr's sheepish excuse to Devastator Sr (G1) to why he went on show in Bayformers.

* In his autobiography, ''If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B-Movie Actor'', Creator/BruceCampbell explains this reasoning in response to fan criticism of his appearances in stinkers like ''Film/{{Congo}}''. He reiterates that actors need to pay the bills like everyone else, and notes other side-benefits of being tied to a production. In the case of ''Congo'', he was flown to Costa Rica, and his scenes did not involve the rest of the main cast so he was only needed on set one day a week. The rest of the time he toured Costa Rica on the studio's dime, "which I would have done myself anyway!". As his ''Congo'' co-star Ernie Hudson once said: "[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} If there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.]]"

* When [[PeepShow David Mitchell and Robert Webb]] were criticized for appearing in Apple's "Get a Mac" adverts, Webb responded by saying "When someone asks, 'Do you want to do some funny ads for not many days in the year and be paid more than you would be for an entire series of PeepShow?' the answer, obviously, is, 'Yeah, that's fine'". In response to claims that they'd 'sold out', David Mitchell said that since they'd never attacked the capitalist system in any way, the only possible criticism could be their choice of product...and computers aren't notably evil.

* Creator/JeremyRenner stated that a major reason why he chose to play ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' is because superhero films are quite popular nowadays, so at least it would pay the bills. That and he's a fan of the MarvelCinematicUniverse and [[AwesomeDearBoy he really wanted to play a superhero after seeing]] ''Film/IronMan''.

* Why DannyElfman wound up doing the official theme to ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' instead of series composer Shirley Walker. Originally, the theme was supposed to be the heroic refrain heard in each episode (usually when Batman is swooping into action) and the opening of ''BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'', but after Elfman saw the influx of royalty money he was getting from his ''Simpsons'' theme, he took up the offer to do a rearrangement of his ''Film/{{Batman}}'' theme for the animated show (which also used his film theme in a couple of early episodes), as well as scoring themes for several other television shows later. Which would certainly explain his involvement with ''Series/PointPleasant'' and ''Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey''...
