* ''Almost'' happened to [[Creator/{{Yukana}} Yukana Nogami]] when she played Four Murasame in the ''Anime/ZetaGundam'' movies. First, Four's original seiyuu Creator/SaekoShimazu wasn't cast despite still being active, so the fans immediately pegged Yukana as a ReplacementScrappy. Second, the director of the movie ''and'' one of the original seiyuu from the TV series were going through a ''scandalous'' divorce [[YourCheatingHeart related to the guy's womanizing]], and Yukana was apparently involved with him in the past. As a result Yukana was accused of pulling CastingCouch and [[YokoOhNo took the brunt of the fandom's fury]], which put her whole career in serious risk; it wouldn't recover until [[CareerResurrection she weas casted as]] [[Anime/CodeGeass C.C.]]

* Creator/LucilleBall, the star of ''Series/ILoveLucy'', conceived of the idea for, produced and acted in another primetime comedy series, ''Life With Lucy'' (no relation to Ball's StarMakingRole) on Creator/{{ABC}} in the 1980s. Given her past television successes through the 60s and 70s even after the end of her most famous show, Ball was given complete creative control over the series - which meant that she tried to replicate ''ILoveLucy'''s success in the 50's for an 80's crowd. Suffice to say, the attempt didn't work, and the resulting series (about a widow who goes to work at a hardware store) was painfully unfunny and cringe-inducing to watch (at least partially because Lucy was trying to duplicate her famous slapstick comedy, which didn't work nearly as well for her as it did when she was younger (pratfalls by a senior citizen make you want to call a doctor to check their hip, not laugh). The show flopped on arrival, and its failure made Ball stop working on any more projects (she died three years later).

* Although Creator/GeenaDavis was still stinging from ''Film/CutthroatIsland'', ''The Geena Davis Show'' didn't help matters. One telling clue: usually when a show is named after its star, [[TheDanza they keep that name in the show]] - Emeril played "Emeril" in Emeril and Bette played "Bette" in Bette, for example - with Bill Cosby being among the more notable exceptions (The Bill Cosby Show, The Cosby Show, The Cosby Mysteries, Cosby and, of course, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - in none of those is his character called Bill). Despite being The GEENA DAVIS Show, Geena Davis's character was named "Teddie". Davis' career was then really thrown off the rails when Commander In Chief failed. It was supposed to be Davis' comeback and initially started strong, including an Emmy win for her, but ratings declined throughout the year before it was ultimately cancelled after 18 episodes. Davis has forged a new career focusing on researching women in film and bringing awareness to the plight of sexism within the entertainment industry, which has been met with critical acclaim. She still does acting roles here and there, the most recent of which is voicing the mother in the Studio Ghibli film When Marnie Was There, and the upcoming television adaptation of ''Film/TheExorcist''.
