For example, Billy Dee Williams plays Two Face, which is a great easter egg for anyone who remembers that he played Harvey Dent in the 1989 Tim Burton Batman. But if you didn't know that, it's not like it'll cause you any trouble.

1989 Two-Face was Tommy Lee Jones.  Billy Dee Williams is Lando Calrissian. 

As for my recently watched movies... Remember the Titans (good film, if historically inaccurate) and West Side Story (America is the best song.)

*checks Wikipedia and imdb* I think you are actually wrong on this. Billy Dee Williams was both Harvey Dent '89 and Lando Calrissian. Tommy Lee Jones was Two-Face in Batman Forever (which was 1995).

Dincrest is 100% wrong, Harvey Dent in the Tim Burton Batman film was a minor role, and was played by Mr. Calrissian himself, Billy Dee Williams.

TASTY!

Billy Dee Williams being Harvey Dent in the first two Batman films was why The Adventures of Batman and Robin's Harvey Dent was black (right up until he turned into a Tommy Lee Jones looking white guy with some bad blue face; although IIRC, the TAoB&R Two-Face transition occurred prior to Forever's release, which means that either they got stupidly lucky or had backstage access to a really early casting pick).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I stand corrected then.  So Agent K and Lando were both Dent

As was whoever played him in The Dark Knight.

And since Luke Skywalker was Joker in Batman The Animated Series... Star Wars/Batman crossover!

He told a great story on Rob Paulsen's voice acting podcast about getting the part of the Joker and how he was sure that they wouldn't hire him because he was Luke Skywalker. He said he decided to give them the kind of audition that made them go "man, I really wish we could hire that guy, he was so awesome..." Then they did hire him, and he freaked out because he didn't remember what he did, and he didn't realize that they taped those auditions. :D

I think it was this episode. It's a great podcast, but starting from the most recent stuff and moving back, the audio quality was so often terrible that I had to give it up. I'm not an elitist for audio quality, I just listen on earbuds outside, and my phone will only allow me to turn it up so loud.

Risky business, I forgot how understated this movie was, for a movie about a "brash youngster taking a turn at pimping" it's really kind of dry and perhaps all the better for it.

Also Rebecca Demornay needed to be in a lot more things.
