* A similar subversion happened when voice actors were being cast for ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' The production team wanted someone who sounded like Kathleen Turner for Jessica Rabbit -- and ended up hiring Kathleen Turner[[note]]Who, ironically was uncredited for her role.[[/note]].

*** It's actually a bit more complicated than that. Creator/RobinWilliams agreed to do ''Aladdin'' for union scale rates only if the Genie was not prominent in the ads and his voice was not used for merchandising. When Disney broke the contract, he cut off ties to the movie, which required Creator/DanCastellaneta for ''The Return of Jafar'' and the ''Aladdin'' TV series. Disney eventually made amends with Williams (after firing Katzenberg), who returned for ''Aladdin and the King of Thieves.''

RonMoore, who has worked on both shows, was once asked by a fan if he noticed this resemblance, and he replied that he hadn't... but now couldn't ''stop'' seeing it after having it pointed out, and that he considered it seriously creeped him out.

Eric Christian Olsen played a younger version of Carrey's character Lloyd in ''Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd''. Jamie Kennedy played a character similar to Carrey's from ''Film/TheMask'' in ''Film/SonOfTheMask''. Rob Paulsen is the go to guy for voicing animated version of Carrey roles.
