Sam Elliot was in both Parks and Recreation and The Ranch. Obviously this means that after he lost his job when Eagleton was reabsorbed into Pawnee in Parks and Rec S6 E2 Deppelgängers and getting caught up in the great Yerba Mate vs Matcha Mate war, Ron 2 needed to get away and revinvent himself, so he traded in his Trusty Sandals for Stetson Boots, his freegan vegan quinoa for steaks and his yerba mate tea for whisky and went to Colorado to start a new life.
Mark Addy was in A Knight’s Tale as Roland and Game of Thrones as Robert Baratheon. Obviously this means that after Roland saw William (Heath Ledger) tear it up in Knight’s Tale, he had to flee the despicable proliferation of rock and roll in olde England, so he went to Westeros and renamed himself Robert Baratheon and used all that knighting knowledge to become king.
Jeffrey Wright was in both Casino Royale and Westworld . Obviously this means that after Felix Leiter discovered that his old friend James Bond was in fact a robot, he went into the private sector as as Bernard Lowe and used some of his CIA agent knowledge of people to become a programmer of hosts.
