*** Rhona Mitra can also be considered a poor man's Kate Beckinsale. Especially since she starred in ''Film/UnderworldRiseOfTheLycans'' as a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute for Beckinsale's character.

* Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor is your man to go if you want a JohnnyDepp stand-in voice on the cheap, as evidenced by the ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' LicensedGame and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvv8SMTyAgk Pablo Francisco]]; he also does good imitations of KeanuReeves, JackieChan and ArnoldSchwarzenegger.
* There has been a fair amount of talk describing KatieMcGrath of ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' as a potential substitute for Creator/KeiraKnightley, despite their notably different body shapes (one has famously modest cleavage while the other... doesn't) and the fact that Katie isn't even English (she's Irish). Apparently having a stong jawline and being a pale, twenty-something brunette actress (and one who is naturally blonde at that) is enough similarity.

** ''Disney/TheLionKing'': [[AllStarCast While all the cast of the original movie]] reprised their roles in the sequels (except Creator/RowanAtkinson as Zazu, so Edward Hibbert filled in the role), only Pumbaa and Rafiki retain the same voice actor in the spinoff ''Timon and Pumbaa'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. (Mufasa had a different voice in ''HouseOfMouse'', and was "voiced" by archive recordings for ''Kingdom Hearts II'')

* Creator/MiaWasikowska of ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' looks uncannily like a young Creator/GwynethPaltrow, should one be called for.

*** Even people who don't like Creator/TelltaleGames' ''VideoGame/BackToTheFuture'' series are blown away by AJ Locascio's MichaelJFox impression.
** On ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'', Creator/PatrickWarburton was ThePoorMansSubstitute for Creator/TimAllen as the voice of Buzz Lightyear (although Allen did reprise the role in ''Buzz Lightyear: The Adventure Begins''; Warburton revoiced Buzz when the movie was shown as episodes of the series).

* Creator/CrispinFreeman has voiced Will Turner (Creator/OrlandoBloom's character from ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'') so often that even ''he'' has lost track of when the character is voiced by him and when the character is actually voiced by Creator/OrlandoBloom in anything other than the movies themselves.
