** He also juggles while discussing the diagnosis-of-the-week in "Clueless" - his giant tennis ball, the Magic 8-Ball, and a pencil case - and while three-ball juggling is pretty basic, juggling differently-shaped objects adds a few layers of difficulty.

* Virtually every time a wrestler stars or guest-stars in ''anything'' they're shown using wrestling moves, even if they're not supposed to. This led to a hilarious subversion in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' when they introduce StoneColdSteveAustin as an enemy agent and expert at close-quarters combat, but is revealed to be a ''sword expert'' who ends up performing no wrestling moves whatsoever.
** Completely averted by CodyRhodes' guest spot on ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}''; he plays an ex-football player (in a bit of an ActorAllusion), but never does any wrestling moves.
** One particularly blatant example comes from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In one episode Wrestling/DwayneJohnson (credited simply as "The Rock") appears for one scene just so he can wrestle Seven of Nine. They even let him do a couple of his trademark moves (including The People's Eyebrow).
*** The Eyebrow can, at least, be justified by the fact that he is playing a gladiator. It would make sense for him to have a trademark, of sorts.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'':
** Cameron learns ballet in the episode "The Demon Hand". Creator/SummerGlau, the actress who plays Cameron... [[RunningGag do we even need to say it?]] (She in fact got her big break--working with Creator/JossWhedon in an episode of ''Series/{{Angel}}'' which later led him to bring her on ''Series/{{Firefly}}''--playing a ballerina, as noted above.)
** Singer Shirley Manson makes her acting debut in the Season 2 opener; the opening scene is set to the backdrop of her singing, even before her character has any screen time. Her character's daughter mentions in a later episode that [[IronyAsSheIsCast "Mommy can't sing."]]
** In the episode "The Tower is Tall But the Fall is Short", Bonnie Morgan, an actress who is also a contortionist, plays the Terminator "Rosie" and gets bent every which way in a fight with Cameron--and yes, her body can and does really bend like that.

* The adaptation of ''Film/EllaEnchanted'' features Ella being ordered to sing "Somebody to Love" for the giants' wedding, if only so that Creator/AnneHathaway could have a song and dance number.
* In perhaps the sweetest use of this trope, in the second ''Film/ThePrincessDiaries'', Creator/JulieAndrews was given a song that had been written specifically for her limited range, so that she could have her first musical number since the surgery that damaged her vocal chords. The cast and crew were said to be in tears during the filming.

* Creator/DannyKaye, even before becoming a movie star, had quite a way with rattling off rambling {{Patter Song}}s on the scarcest pretext. Though these were normally written for him by his wife Sylvia Fine, it was the regular songwriters behind ''Theatre/LadyInTheDark'' and ''Let's Face It'' who respectively provided him with "Tchaikowsky" and "Let's Not Talk About Love."

** As far back as the original series' "Let's Go Rider Kick" (performed by Creator/HiroshiFujioka), ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series have featured insert songs performed by the lead actors in order to show off their singing skills. However, ''[[Series/KamenRiderDenO Den-O]]'' takes the cake for allowing star Takeru Satoh to show off his singing, acting, and even break-dancing skills.

However, ''[[Series/KamenRiderDenO Den-O]]'' takes the cake for allowing star Takeru Satoh to show off his singing, acting, and even break-dancing skills. In fact, odds are Ryutaros' penchant for breakdancing was created entirely to allow Satoh more opportunities to show off.



** The Hyper Battle Video of ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' had Gaku Sano, Yutaka Kobayashi and Yuumi Shida showing off their interests, most notably Yutaka's baking skills. Yutaka even briefly had a web series called "Yuta Café", where he would bake things for the other cast members. And during the Baron focus episode of Gaim Gaiden, this comes into play again when Shapur bakes a cake for Mai.

** ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' had an episode where a MonsterOfTheWeek challenges the Kamen Rider Club to a contest, and even lets them choose the terms. Gentaro chooses Double Dutch, which is Sota Fukushi's specialty; likewise, JK (Shion Tsuchida) chooses breakdancing.

* In the recent broadway adaption of School of Rock, it's a cast REQUIREMENT for the children and adults to have high skill in music like Percussion, Electric Guitar, Bass, Keyboard and not to mention have a KILLER voice. Needless to say, the show's musical bits are some of the best on broadway. Imagine seeing a 12 year old shred an electric guitar like a badass.
This list shows the last 10 events of 434. Show all.
