* Rather than try to take the Buffalo Bills back to the Super bowl, outside linebacker Monty Brown signed with the New England Patriots in order to get closer to the headquarters of Wrestling/{{WWE}}. When that didn't workout he instead debuted for All World Wrestling League in Michigan after training with Dan "The Beast" Severn and Wrestling/{{Sabu}}. He'd eventually follow Sabu into WWE's ill fated {{revival}} of ECW.

** Unsurprisingly, so were Music/DaftPunk (who cite the 1982 film's composer Music/WendyCarlos as an influence). Allegedly, they spent their meeting with Disney executives regarding the film's score asking, in effect, "is this gonna be done right?"

* Jeffrey Wells wrote an extremely long and suprisingly good fanfic for the ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' comic. It was so good that author Shaenon Garrity not only featured it as filler during most of Narbonic's run but also wound up working with Jeff to write her later comic SkinHorse. Neither of them are exactly sure how, tho.

* Creator/YokoHonna, better known as the HardDrinkingPartyGirl [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Sumeragi]], had a reocurring role in ''Black'' and ''Black RX'' as a child. Years later, ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' aired and she has adopted many ''Kamen Rider'' concepts to her character Nagisa, aka Cure ''Black'' (or it may be just a cross-reference to the Toei Company producing both ''PrettyCure'' and ''Kamen Rider'').

** United States Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) is an avowed fan of Batman, and has since had [[TheCameo cameos]] in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight'': the former as an extra, and the latter as a guest at Bruce Wayne's party who stands up to the Joker.

Most recently, he played an actual Senator in Batman v. Superman!

* Creator/EvangelineLilly [[http://www.hobbitmovienews.com/2011/09/19/new-interview-with-evangeline-lilly-tauriel/ was a Tolkien fangirl since the age of 13]]. For bonus points, she is a purist and initially refused to watch ''Film/TheFellowshipOfTheRing'' for the fear of AdaptationDecay. Lilly has also said that she refuses to read the last 25 pages of ''Return of the King'' because "the story must go on." She appeared in ''Film/TheHobbit'' as a CanonForeigner character.
* Ditto Creator/StephenColbert, who has vocally expressed his Tolkien fanboyism for ''years'' before getting a brief, silent cameo (alongside his wife and two sons) in ''[[Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug The Desolation of Smaug]]''.
** Colbert also moderated the San Diego Comic-Con panel for ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'' in full costume no less.

* Creator/GeoffJohns first suggested to DC that Superboy should be a clone of Clark Kent and Lex Luthor [[http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/3055/geoffjohnslu2.png in a fan letter as a kid]]. Now he's basically DC's #1 writer and the man behind some of their most successful books and events as well as the company's Chief Creative Officer. And in his breakthrough first arc for his Teen Titans run, he did indeed reveal that-- contrary to what we all believed all these years-- Superboy is in fact cloned from Superman and Lex Luthor.
