Theres defo a conversation to be had about "oh shit that actor was in that?!/that character?!" 

Stolen from the movie thread.

I'll start with Cuba Gooding Jr and Geena Davis in Coming to America and Tootsie respectively

Wow, I didn't realise that Gina Davis was that old. 

I saw a bit of Earth Girls are Easy the other day 😍😍

Not a movie but the other day there was an old A Touch of Frost episode on and a very very young Damian Lewis in it.

Probably not quite the thing you’re looking for, but I was reading about Joan Rivers the other day and I stumbled on her sole directorial venture featuring an early role for Billy Crystal. This is sixteen years before the film “Junior”. The film also marks the beginning of the film career for Michael Keaton. Currently rated at a mighty 3.1 on IMDb.

I’ve mentioned it before but it surprised me when I found out that Arnold Toht from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the baby eating Bishop of Bath & Wells from Blackadder and Harris from Porridge were all played by Ronald Lacey.

Doing the Jurassic Park/World marathon at the mo and did not realise Vince Vaughan was in number 2! I haven't watched 2 for years and years (I was only 5 when it came out!)

One of my faves after watching him Ben Wyatt-ing it up in Parks & Rec is Adam Scott being the Defiant's helmsman in Star Trek: First Contact...

Is that the swimming episode one?

FYI the girl who played the pretty blonde married Keith Allen.


A couple of early Jeff Goldblum appearances, Annie Hall and Death Wish.

Sigourney Weaver also appears in Annie Hall. Not so much as blink and you’ll miss her, more like squint and you may see her.

Jake Gyllenhaal is Billy Crystal’s son in City Slickers.

Veering away from films, Xena: Warrior Princess is an absolute treasure trove...

Karl Urban in Xena: Warrior Princess: No_Small_Parts

Anyone memba David from the David & Goliath story in Xena: Warrior  Princess?: TheBoys

Nathan Barley had a pre-breakout Benedict Cumberbatch and Ben Whishaw...

Nathan Barley is 10 years old – but do you remember when Benedict  Cumberbatch appeared in it? | Metro News jaynedoll — professorfangirl: Here's a thing: he was filming... | Ben  whishaw, Nathan barley, Film

...and I'm not even going into X-Files, would take far too long.

Not an actor as such but this is the one I think of immediately, a lot of people know that Hot Fuzz's Nicholas Angel's ex Janine is Cate Blanchett under the hazmat suit but it took me at least until years later to learn that the Father Christmas who stabs Nicholas through the hand is LOTR Director Peter Jackson.

Great thread. First one that came to mind for me was Jimmy Fallon in Almost Famous

I haven't seen that film but a character who looks like that gives the vibe of probably having a pretty dubious browser search history 😂
