* The Coen brothers wanted the opening narration for ''Film/TheBigLebowski '' to be read by someone [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rmw5g_WQpM "sounding not unlike Sam Elliott."]] Ultimately, they were able to get Sam Elliott himself.
* Zach Braff has stated in interviews that when ''Film/GardenState'' was in development, he and his friends kept saying they wanted somebody ''like'' Creator/NataliePortman for the lead female role, never dreaming that they might actually get ''her''.

* Several actors have tried being poor man's versions of Creator/JimCarrey, to varying degrees of success. 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 ''SonOfTheMask''. Rob Paulsen is the go to guy for voicing animated version of Carrey roles.

* So you want a young Creator/HarrisonFord but don't have a [[OurTimeTravelIsDifferent time machine]]? Get JensenAckles. [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Eric Kripke]] did. (Note: personality, not looks.)

* CraigMcCracken originally wanted Creator/JackBlack as the voice of the evil gnome in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey." Black was too busy and too expensive, so Creator/JessHarnell assumed the voice, doing an eerily good impression.
