** The seemingly-unimportant lab worker whose circuitous plane trip will [[spoiler:unleash the apocalyptic virus]]: doesn't he look like the {{Jerkass}} cop who [[{{Determinator}} persistently oppresses]] [[Series/{{House}} Gregory House, MD]]? But... it ''couldn't'' be him; neither of those characters are like the [[WideEyedIdealist infinitely kind and patient]] hospital resident on that [[Series/StElsewhere oddball medical series]] (yeah, a long time ago), which wound up being remembered for the increasingly-complex [[EpilepticTrees nutjob artifices]] inspired by its AllJustADream finale.
** Creator/ChristopherMeloni is playing a cop, [[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit again]]. With long hair for once.
** Done in universe by Dr. Railly, when she sees Cole in a photograph from WorldWarOne, which was the first step to convincing her that Cole may be from the future.

* DuelingStarsMovie: Creator/BruceWillis vs. Creator/BradPitt. This might be more of a retroactive example, as Pitt (while having found recent acknowledgements for his roles in ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'' and ''Film/{{Se7en}}'' ), wasn't nearly as big a star as Bruce "''Film/DieHard''" Willis at the time of the film's release.
