bankrole - The role of a lifetime for an actor: the role that makes an actor rich, either through sharing in the proceeds of the production or in the role's leading to future highly-paid roles.

e.g., Rocky Balboa was Sylvester Stallone's bankrole. If he hadn't written and starred in Rocky, he'd have been lucky to get anything other than more roles in soft porn films such as The Party at Kitty and Stud's.
