Harrison Ford in American Graffiti. His role is small but pivotal. Taking on greater significance with knowledge of his later career. Bob Falfa is almost a prototype for Han Solo. Of course its also the first time he worked with George Lucas.
I've always thought of John Milner as the proto-Han Solo. Milner exchanges with Carol (Mackenzie Phillips) reminds me of Han and Leia. In fact I came up with an alternate cast for Star Wars using the American Graffiti cast

Luke Skywalker- Ron Howard
Han Solo- Paul Le Matt
Leia Organa- Cindy Williams

American Graffiti has Suzanne Somers as the Girl in the T-Bird.
