Re: Bit roles before they were "famous"

A pre-Bones Emily Deschanel has a bit role as a secretary at the beginning of Spider-Man 2.

John Ratzenberger seemed to pop up all over the place in the late 1970s/early 1980s. He has one line as a Rebel Alliances deck officer on Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. He's one of the military guys tracking the nuclear missiles in Superman: The Movie. And he's one of the NASA mission control guys in Superman II.

Before he was Captain Hollister on Red Dwarf, Mac Macdonald had a bit role as a colony administrator on LV-426 in Aliens. Ironically, his role was cut from the theatrical version and didn't resurface until the special edition came out in the early 1990s, after Red Dwarf premiered.
