12 Now-Famous People You Didn't Know Were in Movies You've Seen
There are a lot of current stars who did embarrassing things early in their careers, so it's neat to see the early work of current stars in good films that you don't remember them in because you had no idea who they were the first time you saw the movie. Every once in a while, I'll flip through the channels, stumble across a movie I haven't seen for a few years, and I'll notice some huge fucking star in a bit part in a 1998 movie that I loved and I'll be like, "What the ...?" I had no idea he was in this movie.
Here are 12 instances of just that.
Ryan Gosling -- Remember the Titans
Michelle Williams -- Species
Jake Gyllenhaal -- City Slickers
