* Creator/BenWhishaw's quotes about replacing ColinFirth as ''Film/{{Paddington}}'' in ''The Daily Mail'' saying that he has "no relationship to Paddington whatsoever" and attended the audition "begrudgingly" probably points to this trope as a reason why he signed on. Subverted to an extent, as that same interview revealed Whishaw's attitude turned into a case of SoMyKidsCanWatch since he has a 18 month old niece, and his initial apprehension was due to previous bad experiences doing voice over work. Once he started working he quite enjoyed himself.

* Creator/DavidWarner. While ''Film/{{Tron}}'' is acceptable, let's consider ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIITheSecretOfTheOoze'', ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'', ''VideoGame/{{Privateer}} II: The Darkening'' and of course, ''Film/QuestOfTheDeltaKnights''.

** Of course, "penny dreadfuls" have been around for much longer than that. Creator/BenjaminDisraeli wrote a bunch of cheap {{Romance Novel}}s for the sole and explicit purpose of funding his political career (politics didn't pay nearly as well back then as it does now).

* In a behind the scenes featurette for [[FarCry3BloodDragon Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon]], Creator/MichaelBiehn stated that he did Rex Colt's voice work for a paycheck and not much else. However, much like the game itself, the featurette was very tounge-in-cheek, and Biehn also said he had quite a lot of fun recording the more...[[ClusterFBomb colorful]] lines of his character.

* The fantasy flop ''Film/{{Eragon}}'' boasted the likes of Creator/JeremyIrons, RobertCarlyle, Creator/JohnMalkovich, and Djimon Hounsou. They couldn't save it, and they didn't try, either.

** It's also the reason he continues doing big budget Hollywood movies. The massive salary enables him to fund his Asian movies as well as continue his charitable work.

* Why DannyElfman wound up doing the official theme to ''WesternAnimation/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 ''WesternAnimation/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''...

* [[ComicBook/LoveAndRockets Gilbert Hernandez]] has openly admitted that he only did ''Fatima: The Blood Spinners'' because ZombieApocalypse stories were fashionable and he thought that it might sell beyond his usual fanbase.

* 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 ''Film/{{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.
