* Creator/RobertZemeckis has directed three films with all-Serkis Folk casts: ''WesternAnimation/ThePolarExpress'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf 2007}}'' (especially Grendel), and ''Film/AChristmasCarol2009''. He also produced the Serkis Folk-starring ''WesternAnimation/MonsterHouse'' and ''Film/MarsNeedsMoms''. At least two of these films feature examples where actors are Serkused to the point where they're unrecognizable. The lead character in ''Beowulf'', depicted as a muscular superhero, was played by a 50-something character actor; in Polar Express, Tom Hanks played several characters, one of which was a young boy, while in the Christmas Carol, Gary Oldman was able to portray Bob Cratchit and the ghost of Jacob Marley. ''Beowulf'' also provides a case of Serkusing and InkSuitActor: Creator/AngelinaJolie was pregnant when she shot the film, but was able to appear in a nude scene thanks to being (otherwise photo-accurately) Serkused. The same can also (shudder) be said of Anthony Hopkins in the same film.

** In ''Film/RogueOne'', two characters from the original trilogy return via this method--Guy Henry donned performance capture gear and did a Peter Cushing impression to play Wilhuff Tarkin and [[spoiler:Ingvild Deila did the same for Princess Leia in a scene at the end, with help from archive audio.]] Subverted for other characters who were recast (Mon Mothma), played by the same actors as before (Bail Organa, Vader's voice) or [[spoiler:appear with the help of original trilogy footage off the cutting room floor.]]

* In order to avoid the look of the character from the [[Film/TheFantasticFour past]] [[Film/FantasticFour movies]], ''[[Film/FantasticFour2015 The Fantastic Four]]'' has Jamie Bell providing the voice and motion capture work for The Thing. They even brought in his old motion capture coach from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'' to help out.
