    don't forget about Jeff Goldblum in Death Wish…nearly fell off my chair when I realized it was him!

  • Henry Gibson

    #21: I'll go you one better: George Clooney in Facts of Life. And he was supposed to be a regular in both shows but got cut halfway through each of his first seasons.

    I wonder whatever happened to him.

    Don't forget Lady Gaga the Sopranos. Third season, I think, there's an episode where AJ and friends trash the school swimming pool. She's one of the teenage girls cheering them on.

    Steve Buscemi was not a "celeb in unknown role" in Pulp Fiction. It was a cameo appearance by an actor who appeared in the director's previous work—Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs. He may not have been a celebrity in 1994, but there were plenty of us who knew he was and recognized him in the role.
