* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Claudius is [[Series/DoctorWho The Master!]] [[note]]Twice, actually; Jacobi voiced the Master in the non-canon ''WebAnimation/ScreamOfTheShalka'', then was brought back canonically when ''Doctor Who'' returned to television.[[/note]]
*** Or, if you ''really'' want to be clever: "Hey! [[Theatre/{{Hamlet}} Claudius]] is playing Claudius!"
** Augustus is '''''Creator/BrianBlessed!!!'''''
** Livia is [[Film/{{Dune}} The Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam!]]
** Tiberius is Inspector Wexford.
** Caligula is [[Film/{{Alien}} Kane!]]

** Aelius Sejanus is [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard!]]
*** With Hair?!
** Macro is [[LordOfTheRings Gimli!]]

*** Yosser is also [[Titanic Captain Smith]] and [[Film/LordOfTheRings King Theoden]]
** Agrippina is [[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E3SilverNemesis Lady Peinforte]]!
** And pretty much every actor who turns up has appeared in at least one other BBC production. There's even a [[http://calapine.dreamwidth.org/459307.html Doctor Who/I, Claudius DRINKING GAME]].
** Castor is [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Mr. Gibbs]], though [[IWasQuiteALooker you really wouldn't know it.]]
** Livia's slave in episode one is [[Series/AlloAllo Lieutenant Gruber]]!

* {{Plagiarism}}: Not this work, but it turns out that Richard Condon plagiarized several passages from ''I, Claudius'' in ''TheManchurianCandidate''. This went unnoticed until a few years after Condon died.
