No otha class gonna do that!I do have a feeling that this is just far too similar to Hey, It's That Guy!/Voice, so those trivia tropes should be considered as well for this. And in either account, much of the rest would be accounted for in Actor Allusion, so what can be done about either of the two?

Status of possible Fallout RP idea: Fleshing out locations/factions. Home freaking run!
Still just awesome like thatI'd say we can make this a purely in-universe trope, about an actor who, well, has played a role with which s/he is forever associated, to the point of it either being the butt of jokes at his/her expense or becoming a big part of the person's ego, etc.
Insert witty and clever quip here. New handle, same name. My music.
Wouldn't something like that be covered by I Am Not Spock?

According to the I Am Not Spock page, Role Association is the Just for Fun version of this trope. I'm not thoroughly sure what this means though.
Didn't we just have Hey, It's That Guy! in here because it was chronically misused for Role Association?
A Wizard boyTechnically, because people were annoyed at the persistent usage as "This character is that guy from that other show!".
"Watching anything with a well seasoned cast will have echoes of the actors' previous roles, making the current viewing seem bizarre and humorous. It's Actor Allusion and Hey, It's That Guy!/Hey, It's That Voice! taken to their logical extreme. Just for fun, twist the cast of a film or series into the screwiest collection of characters." So it is supposedly Hey, It's That Guy! The Same but More?

Some of the listings use lesser known roles, so it isn't really I Am Not Spock. IMHO, it's Hey, It's That Guy! / Hey, It's That Voice! inserted into a plot.
SF-81A Black KnightRole Association is what people chronically misuse Hey, It's That Guy! and Hey, It's That Voice! for, whereas Hey, It's That Guy! is supposed to be actors who turn up in a lot of one-shot roles, with few if any lead or major supporting roles. I'm inclined to fix both problems by redirecting Hey, It's That Guy! to Role Association or vice versa and making a new trope to cover the definition of Hey, It's That Guy!. Problem then becomes wick cleanup.

The Hey, It's That Guy! thread was quite firmly against that option. It was decided that Hey, It's That Guy! and related tropes stay the way they are. Redirecting Role Association to Hey, It's That Guy! could work, though.

SF-81A Black KnightOk, so suppose we redirect Role Association to Hey, It's That Guy! and Hey, It's That Voice!, transplant its definition and description onto them, and then make a new trope for what Hey, It's That Guy! is supposed to be.

That is just what the previous post rejected. Role Association is a Just for Fun page that has currently no issues with any misfitting entries, no problems with being referred to incorrectly. Any alteration to either of the pages of Hey, It's That Guy! or Role Association would be appalling because they represent a large amount of work by many people to make two pages with distinct and coherent identities in a deliberate fashion after dealing with concerns raised already in the Trope Repair Shop. I see no reason to actually change anything with this page.
