Re: Bit roles before they were "famous"

Here's a couple from the NAKED CITY television series:

A very young Martin Sheen plays a lunch counter tender.



And a teenaged Christopher Walken (credited as "Ronald Walken").

Wow, you can see where Emilio Estevez has a resemblance!


And that young Christopher Walken ---!

Teri Hatcher was also in an episode of Night Court. Don't know if anyone mentioned that yet.

He and John DeLancie were on an awesome episode of the 80's Twilight Zone called "Dead Run". Spiner played a 'Nam draft dodger being sent to hell, and DeLancie was the executive responsible for sending him there.

Jonathan Frakes was on a different 80's TZ ep. He played a slightly drunk party guest who hits on Pam Dawber. But he backs way the hell off when he finds out she's a secretary (this is in a parallel 'verse where secretaries are world famous).

And of course Robert Duncan McNeill was in one of the best 80's TZ eps of all, "A Message From Charity" (he played an 80's teen who communicates with a girl in Colonial times).

Shatner was in a couple of original Twilight Zone episodes and may have been on The Outer Limits as well.

Her appearance in that movie has always boggled my mind. Moore was listed in the cast in the opening credits of the movie -- star billing, in fact (she was the fourth name in the credits, after Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones and Sela Ward), despite having three scenes and about twelve lines of dialogue.

Martin Sheen and Christopher Walken also did guest appearances on Hawaii Five-O.

John DeLancie in the Six Million Dollar Man episode "Death Probe, Part II." He was the Army medic in the opening scene who insists on examining Steve Austin's injured arm, then sees the bionics and faints.

He was on the original BSG as well. In the 'Terra' story arc.

DeLancie was also in a couple of other 6MDM episodes, "Sharks" and "Just a Matter of Time".

There's a bit of discussion on the Blu-ray, maybe it's also on the DVD, I dunno, but they had a whole subplot with her that was cut out.
