"He always plays himself."

What are some examples of actors "playing themselves" (not someone purposefully featured as themselves, but someone whose personality is so powerful that it overwhelms the character he/she is supposed to be playing)? For instance, some people say that no matter what movie he's in, Jack Nicholson always plays "Jack Nicholson." Other people say the same for Robert DeNiro or Clint Eastwood. I'm looking for some actors and roles that are the embodiment of this notion.

I recently saw Assault on Precinct 13 again and was smitten for some inexplicable reason by actress Laurie Zimmer who played the character Leigh.
Anyway she disappeared from acting and director Charlotte Szlovak made a documentary called Do You Remember Laurie Zimmer? which is about looking for here in L.A.
