** When he's not directing classics like ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', Creator/RobertZemeckis can be the the poor man's Spielberg as well, considering ''Film/RomancingTheStone'', ''Film/ForrestGump'', ''Film/{{Contact}}'' and ''CastAway''.

* One of many running gags in ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'', where the poor man's substitute is referred to as "discount [A-list actor]". They'll also refer to an actor as a discount ''themselves'' if they're spotted in cheap pre-fame roles, such as a pre-[[Film/{{Rocky}} Rocky]] Sylvester Stallone in ''Film/DeathRace2000'', or if it's a ''currently'' famous actor they think are in a bad movie, like Creator/ChanningTatum in ''Film/JupiterAscending''.

* MeganFox is what happens when AngelinaJolie takes a quasi-break from acting (or maybe just a quasi-break from crazy) to raise her own soccer team. After all, what's Hollywood without at least one BiTheWay starlet?

* For ''BrutalLegend,'' Double Fine based the main character, Eddie Riggs, on something of a caricature of Creator/JackBlack. Now they just needed to find someone who could imitate Jack Black. Guess who they ended up getting for the part?

* Discord from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' was created after LaurenFaust had a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' ArchiveBinge and is basically a sadistic, but LaughablyEvil version of [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q]]. As such, they originally intended to get a Creator/JohnDeLancie sound-alike for the role, but instead managed to get the ''real'' Creator/JohnDeLancie. Lauren has even said herself to have been blown away when they got him.

* Need ZacEfron but can't get a Zac Efron? Drew Seeley's your man! They don't actually look too much alike, but mister Seeley did Zac's signing bits in the first HighSchoolMusical and toured with the cast (which is odd because Zac can actually sing). Since then he's been in a lot of lower budget tween friendly musical projects, the type Zac would have been perfect for it HighSchoolMusical hadn't somehow turned him into a known name.

* Due to high demand with popular AAA video game roles and motion capture work since ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' in addition to wanting to become a musician, Creator/TroyBaker is unable to lend his voice in anime and jRPG titles anymore. Fortunately heís got a perfect double in Creator/MatthewMercer. Even AAA game developers call him up if Troy isnít available or is too expensive for their budget.

*** 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.
