* In ''Film/InsideLlewynDavis'', Creator/OscarIsaac and Creator/AdamDriver play a pair of struggling folk singers who finally get their shot at fame when they're invited to sing backup on a song that ends up becoming a huge radio hit. The movie was released in 2013, when Isaac and Driver were both struggling, mostly-obscure character actors with only a few major credits to their names--but just a few months after it was released in the United States, they actually ''did'' get their shot at fame when they were cast as Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/TheForceAwakens'', the long-awaited seventh ''Star Wars'' movie. In an amusing coincidence, the song that gives them their shot at the big-time is "Please, Mr. Kennedy", [[HilariousInHindsight a ballad about a man being launched into outer space]].

* Creator/DeborahAnnWoll was cast as Karen Page in ''Series/Daredevil2015''. Her real-life boyfriend EJ Scott is blind, having lost his sight to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choroideremia Choroideremia]], and her pet cause is raising awareness for the disease.

* During the production halt observed for the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike, ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'''s Michael Trucco (Samuel Anders) was involved in a near-fatal car accident. He miraculously survived the event with little lasting damage except a rather large scar down the back of his neck. To allow him to recover but still be an active part of the show for its final season the writers came up with a scenario involving Anders being struck by a bullet and suffering massive brain trauma and being immobile for the remainder of the show but still an integral part of the final arc. By the time the post-script move ''[[TheMovie The Plan]]'' went into production, he was back on his feet and back to doing the kind of stuff [[BadAss his character was known for]].
