Must have been from one of the Travel channel shows where the man says if you want to play cash, tell the dealer "cash plays". Do any casinos actually let you do this playing cash and being paid in chips?

Rare. The Feds don't like it and all the MBA types have issued memos about Not letting money play.
Stop the play if you have to or say No Action on the Cash. Formal Buy In only.

Now maybe at higher amounts it still happens but I doubt it.

No casino that I know of. Perhaps this was an older show?
Casinos don't let cash play for a miriad of reasons but the latest and most important one I would imagine is the new money laundering regulations which does not allow a casino to accept wagers without confirming the amount and more importantly the validity (I'm not sure if that is the right word to use here) of the currency.

I've seen it happen, but not for more than a bet or two.

Technically no, but all one has to do is throw their money down and clearly state, "$100 on [insert bet here]." The dealer will quickly take the money, hand it to the box, and book the bet. (I have yet to see a dealer/box deny anyone who has done this)

However the cash has to be changed up and the bet placed on the desired amount BEFORE the game is placed in action, before the wheel is spun, before the dice are passed out to shoot.

I don't know of any casinos within the US who shouldn't follow this rule. If they do, they are taking unecessary risks with the feds.

Not from what I've seen. There have been plenty of instances where I've seen someone throw down money for a bet in craps, and the dealer/box books it. Granted, all of these situation may have been with players whom the dealers knew well, but whatever the case, that's what I've observed many times here in Vegas.

As I mentioned there is obviously a difference between what should happen and what actually happens. A cash bet can most certainly be thrown down on the game but like I said the correct procedure is that the change has to be made and the chip placed before the outcome of the game is decided......

If that always happens, I obviously have no control over. I was merely pointing out what I know of internal policies with regards to cash changes and indeed IF "cash plays".

Yes it was an old show. I've seen it many times through the years and this portion always stuck out to me seeming strange and against protocol.

Actually the phrase is usually money plays..... but unless you've just left the Rio and are heading to a nice local bar with a Mexican Restaurant next to it and a line up of good local musicians, Money Plays won't mean much these days.
