Not to be confused with MoneyDearBoy (though often the effect is the same); sometimes, the actors involved just did it for the heck of it and [[DoingItForTheArt not necessarily because they were paid very much]] or that they're trying to show that they can be versatile and [[PlayingAgainstType not be in]] the TypeCasting trap; which can be bad for actors. Which makes for a great work but still does nothing to reduce the surreality of their presence in it. Can also occur when an attempt at StuntCasting comes ''waaaaay'' out of left-field. But there are cases where the odd casting actually ''worked'' SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced. See also: BlackSheepHit, a hit song that doesn't sound anything like the band's other songs and PlayingAgainstType, when an actor or director makes a project outside of their usual character type.

We've all seen it. Sometimes, when watching a movie or TV show, you see an actor portraying a character and you can't help wondering how the hell he wound up in that role and/or entire production. "What the Hell, Casting Agency?" happens when you know quite well who the actor is - you just can't understand why he/she's in ''this''.
