    I thought it was time for one of those cheesy topics that wasn't serious or political in any way - and it better not turn into one! :p

    Anyway, recently I find myself watching older movies and saying "Holy shit, he/she's in this movie?!" - or something like it. Here's a few I've ran across or remember:

    Before Jack Black was widely known, he was in The NeverEnding Story III (I must explain that I wasn't actively watching this movie, but ran across it when I was channel surfing.)

    Cortney Cox was in Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark music video as one of the girls in the crowd

    Hilary Swank was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie) as one of the snobby high school girls

    Chris Rock was in Beverly Hills Cop II as a valet parker in the Playboy Mansion

    Kevin Bacon was in Friday the 13th and got killed.

    Before becoming famous in their own right, Barry Manilow used to play piano for Bette Midler, and Melissa Manchester and Katie Sagal used to sing backup for her. Actually, at that time, Bette wasn't exactly famous herself: she was still singing in a gay bathhouse.

    Jack Black played a soldier in Mars Attacks!

    Remember Kevin Spacey's breakthrough performance in Working Girl? Neither does anybody else. -_-

    George C was in an NBC sitcom named "ER" long before he was in the NBC drama "ER."

    Alanis Morissette
    Starred on Nickelodeon's show, "You Can't Do That on Television" as a wise-cracking young pre-teen.

    Cuba Gooding, Jr
    Was a kid in the barber's chair in "Coming To America".

    Ben Affleck
    Was in the movie "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," playing a basketball player (no lines).

    Freddie Prinze, Jr
    Was in the original "Home Alone," as an extra.

    Viggo Mortensen
    Had a miniscule part in "Witness." Look for him in the scene where Harrison Ford beats up the local punks who harrass him and other Amish. Viggo is one of the Amish sitting in the back of a wagon.

    Hey, too bad he didn't try any "method" acting techniques with that role. Might have been spared the Carrey oeuvre. ;)

    Um, Simon Rex did a few jackoff videos. That's the only one I can remember because it was such a huge scandal.

    Didn't David Duchovny (from X-files) also do some adult movies? Or was that just some rumor?

    And it was reallllllllllly bad. He had difficulty keeping it up and very little actual genitalia was shown in action. Just movement, with no detail. The movie was laughably titled "Italian Stallion." He isn't.
