* HeyItsThatGuy: In the last season episode "Medieval Crimes," you'll spot Creator/JoshHolloway (aka Sawyer from Series/{{Lost}}) as part of a cheesy Ren-Faire restaurant gang that robs jewelry stores. It was one of his first credited TV roles.
** In the episode "Last Hope", a young Creator/MilaKunis appears as one of the troubled kids at the Ranger Camp.
** In the two-part episode "Lucas", the titular AIDS-suffering child is played by [[Film/TheSixthSense Haley Joel Osment]].
** In the episode "Right Man, Wrong Time", [[MaryElizabethMcGlynn Mary Elizabeth McGlynn]] portrays country singer Merilee Summers. This is [[Franchise/SilentHill a demonstration of]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome her singing voice]], and this is one of a few live-action acting roles [[Anime/GhostInTheShell prior]] [[Manga/OutlawStar to]] [[Anime/CodeGeass her]] [[Anime/CowboyBebop voice]] [[Anime/WolfsRain acting]] [[Anime/DigimonTamers career]].
** Wrestling/{{Sting}} appears as a drug dealing biker antagonist in the episode "Unsafe Speed."
** Walker fights Wrestling/RandySavage in "Fight Or Die."
** Wrestling/HulkHogan appears in "Division Street" as a reformed thug working to help children stay on the right path and be of good faith.
** [[Franchise/CrashBandicoot Krunk]]'s voice actor Marshall R. Teague reappears as many different characters on this show.
** Rowdy Wrestling/RoddyPiper appears as Cody "The Crusader" Conway, a wrestler based on Piper himself, in the episode "The Crusader." He even played the [[ActorAllusion bagpipes]]!
** Doris Roberts plays much the same character as she did on ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' in the episode "The Big Bingo Bamboozle".
** Fans of ''Series/TheWonderYears'' should note that Dan Lauria plays an abusive father in the episode "A Father's Image".
* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/CamClarke is everywhere in this show. Usually he's just a background voice on the radio or TV, but occasionally he dubs over other characters when they're off screen. One time he actually dubbed a villain who was ''on screen,'' which created a huge dissonance the next time you hear the guy and he has a voice that actually looks like it would come out of him.
** In the Mexican Spanish dub, Walker is [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Waylon Smithers]].
** In the Japanese dub, Walker was voiced by the late Takashi Taniguchi, who also was the regular dub voice for Creator/TommyLeeJones in Japan. [[HilariousInHindsight Hilariously enough]], he also dubbed '''Creator/BruceLee''' in some of his films. Also, [[Creator/YukoMizutani Alex Cahill]] is [[Anime/TenchiMuyo Mihoshi]].
** In the German dub, Walker is ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Mr. Krabs]]''.

* [[ChannelHop Company Hop]]: The first four episodes were made by Cannon Television, before they ran into financial difficulties. Enter CBS (along with the Ruddy/Greif Company, [[Creator/ChuckNorris Top Kick Productions]] and Columbia Pictures Television) to pick up the slack, in a literal case of NetworkToTheRescue.

* CastingGag / CelebrityParadox: In "The Moscow Connection", at the very beginning, Trivette reads out a piece of literature describing in an almost poetic way of a stand off between two men. Walker questions what book this is, and Trivette says it is ''The Secret Power Within''. Walker follows this question by asking who wrote it, and is told that Chuck Norris had. He simply shrugs and claims to have never heard of him, earning a track record telling by Trivette of Chuck's achievements in martial arts. Again, Walker says he never heard of him--yet corrects Trivette when the latter makes a mistake in listing Norris' accomplishments.
** In Season 7's "Code of the West", the four main characters talk about who would play them in a movie. Trivette get Denzel Washington, Alex gets Helen Hunt, C.D. gets PaulNewman ([[FunnyAneurysmMoment kinda sad in hindsight because both actors are now dead]]) and Walker gets...Chuck Norris. When Walker complains they got Oscar winners, Trivette points out that Chuck was a six time World Karate Champion, which pleases Walker. Good thing since, of course...

* YouLookFamiliar: Actor Marshall Teague makes no less than ''six'' appearances on the show as entirely different characters, all of which are the main villains of each story, usually disguised as different people under heavy makeup. On top of that, he plays the main villain of both the first ''[[BookEnds and]]'' last episodes of the series. Not only this, but he also plays an [[{{Expy}} ancestor]] of his character in the GrandFinale, making him the proud owner of '''seven''' different character roles. And he even plays a major villain in "Trial By Fire", bumping his appearances up to '''''eight!'''''
