You know how, when revisiting a certain movie you haven’t seen in years, you notice background and supporting characters that you didn’t notice before because they’re famous now? I recently watched Singles again — a movie I’d seen a dozen times — and had completely forgotten that Jim True Frost (Pryzbylewski from “The Wire”) and Paul Giamatti had recognizable roles in it. Someone should come up with a name for this phenomenon. We’ll call it the “She was in that” phenomenon.
Today, as I was researching a list I’m working on for later today, I stumbled upon January Jones’ IMDb profile and had quite a few She was in that moments myself. Before she Betty Draper (and Emma Frost), January Jones bounced around Hollywood with quite a few supporting roles. Many in movies that I’d seen and had no recollection of until stills from the films jogged my memory. Here are 8 Films that I’d completely forgotten Jones was in.

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights
