* Creator/BenAffleck's roles in the comedic [[Franchise/TheViewAskewniverse View Askewniverse]] made him notable. While he did try to branch out, none of these attempts really took until the latter half of UsefulNotes/TheOughts, when he directed an adaptation of ''Literature/GoneBabyGone'' to good reviews. He has since become a respect dramatic director, repeating the trick twice more with ''Film/TheTown'' and ''Film/{{Argo}}''.

* Creator/ShiaLaBeouf is most remembered for starting off as the goofy younger brother from ''Series/EvenStevens''. One of his other popular roles as a child was his work as Stanley from ''Literature/{{Holes}}'', which isn't a comedy but isn't completely solemn either. As an adult he's most well-known for his action or dramatic roles such as the ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries''.

* A lot of VoiceActors who primarily do WesternAnimation (as opposed to {{Anime}}) could be seen as this in some roles. Most Western animated shows are comedic, so when they play characters in DC or Marvel superhero cartoons, or action/story-driven series (that are more dramatic and serious in tone), it can be seen as this. Creator/JeffBennett in ''{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}}'', DeeBradleyBaker in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', and TaraStrong and Creator/JohnDiMaggio in ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' could be seen as this. Additional, some more story and drama-driven video game roles can also serve this purpose, such as Creator/RobPaulsen voicing the Cyborg Ninja in ''[[MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes]]''.

* Creator/TakeshiKitano was first known as a wildly popular slapstick TV comedian Beat Takeshi. He then suddenly went on to direct and act in a number of extremely dark, dramatic crime films playing badass yakuza characters (years later, he embraced his reputation of Japanese Charles Bronson, playing in several successful yakuza films by other directors'). Even though he continued to brandish his own brand of irreverent, absurdist comedy in his later films, he still managed to go even ''darker'' directing a couple of heart-rending tragedies after a near-fatal bike accident. Western viewers who were first exposed to his bloody yakuza films (or a suicidal ''Film/HanaBi'', or hipsterific and elegiac ''Dolls'') were quite surprised to see the old scarface in old reruns of the loopy game show ''TakeshisCastle''.

* From Fred Stone's dramatic performance in ''Literature/AliceAdams'' (though not in a starring role), one might not suspect that he had been famous for starring in a long series of musical extravaganzas (a forgotten genre of shows very similar to English {{pantomime}}s), starting with the 1903 production of ''TheWizardOfOz'', in which he played the Scarecrow.

Added DiffLines:

* Martin Billany, a.k.a. Creator/LittleKuriboh, is an example among [=YouTubers=]. After admitting he suffers from depression, he scaled back his comedic output as seen on ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' and ''WebVideo/TheMarkRemark'' and focused for some time on ''We're Still Here'', a far more serious look at his struggles with depression. He's since returned to doing funny, light-hearted stuff, but ''We're Still Here'' still gets more updates than other [=LittleKuriboh=] segments, and increasing discomfort with what he sees as mean-spirited humor on ''The Mark Remark'' has indirectly resulted in his serious wrestling op-ed segment ''Mark My Words'' becoming more than a one-off thing.

* Music/MileyCyrus' ''Series/HannahMontana'' co-star Creator/EmilyOsment, also known for appearing in kids' movies like the second and third ''Film/SpyKids'' movies, ''Film/SoccerMom'' and ''Film/TheHauntingHourDontThinkAboutIt'', has shifted gears to more dramatic and adult fare like ''Film/Cyberbully201'', the action-adventure Crackle web series ''WebVideo/{{Cleaners}}'' and indie dramas like''Film/KissMe'', a far cry from her zanier childhood roles.
