Being an actor is the best job in the world. You’re basically paid to play pretend. (The hard part, of course, is getting to the point when you are paid for it at all.) It is, however, still a job, and the reasons why actors pick roles often reflect that -- say, they need to pay the rent, or buff up their resume, or their boss says, “I know you’re busy, but…”

But then again, there are times when actors just have fun. Have you ever had fun typing numbers into a spreadsheet? Do you ever feel like a child flipping burgers? Of course not, not even birthday clowns find their jobs fun (especially not birthday clowns). But actors do get to pick gigs just to have a good time. It might not be every day, of course -- but here are a few cases when they totally did that.
