I didn't know he/she was in this!
« on: November 27, 2009, 01:27:22 AM »
I seem to get a lot of pleasure out of spotting famous actors in films I didn't know they were in.

For example:

Kevin Bacon was in Planes, Trains & Automobiles? Huh.

or

Is that a young John Rhys-Davies in The Naked Civil Servant?

For me, it's more about spotting famous actors before they hit it big time, but whatever works.

This thread will be popular one day.  You just wait.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I don't care if I have to do all the posting myself :)

That's a good job spotting John Rhys-Davies there. I don't think I would've recognized him looking so young.

I believe it's Mathieu Almaric, but I may be wrong.

Well that explains why I didn't recognize him, I have no idea who that is.

Watching Donnie Brasco on Showtime the other night, I was surprised to see that the wiretap tech who asks Donnie to explain 'fuggedaboudit' is played by Paul Giamatti; and Tim Blake Nelson plays his partner.
