** This even extends to the Muppets themselves- as Ernie and Bert, Jim Henson and Frank Oz pretty much ended up in a RoleReversal of their roles as [[Series/TheMuppetShow Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear]].

* Creator/MarkHarmon has built his career on playing honorable men--doctors, law enforcement officers--but gave an absolutely bone-chilling performance as SerialKiller Ted Bundy in the 1986 miniseries ''The Deliberate Stranger''. Enough to result in a new onslaught of love letters to Bundy himself.

* Creator/SharonSmall in the TV movie ''No Child of Mine''. She is most famous for sympathetic, genuinely good-hearted characters like Barbara Havers on ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'' and Trudi Malloy on ''Mistresses'', and is absolutely ''[[{{Moe}} adorable]]''. In ''No Child Of Mine'', however, she plays a pathologically, violently abusive mother, and does it so convincingly that the result can be ''nauseating''.

** Jon Pertwee was mostly known for ''[[TheGoonShow Goons]]''-esque comedy roles and voice acting before being cast as the suave GentlemanAdventurer-style Third Doctor. He had in fact been cast for his comic abilities as the producer who cast him wanted to go in a more comedy-based direction, but ended up playing the role straight in an action show (although his comic talents were well-used).

* Billy Dee Williams in ''BriansSong''; where he portrays the shy, soft spoken, Gale Sayers. Quite a change from his usual portrayal of the suave, smooth, ladies man.

* Jason Biggs is best known for his work on the ''AmericanPie'' films, with the majority of his other roles basically being derivative of that performance, typecasting him as a nebbish loser with difficulty standing up for himself. His character in ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' is a welcome change of pace, allowing to utilize a much wider range of emotions, be a bit more proactive as a character, and deliver a few WhatTheHellHero speeches whenever he feels wronged.
