Based on this discussion and the trope pages of Actor Allusion and Casting Gag, would it also be a Sub-Trope of Casting Gag?

They say "A Casting Gag relies upon casting an actor in a role that reflects on their Real Life history. An Actor Allusion is any character, plot or situation that references a previous plot or role for the actor."

Needs a Better Description. An actor being from the same city as the character they play is remarkable. Being from the same country is not. Also, I can't speak for every example, but the Glee and The Vampire Diaries had the character rewritten to suit the actor.

This could be very easy to get confused with Actor Allusion.
