Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were in Classic Movies and Shows

Josh Brolin In ‘The Goonies’

Unless you’re Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit or Joel Courtney in Super 8, chances are if you’re an actor, not everyone saw you in your earliest work, and you had to take some more minor roles in order to finally get noticed.

This collection shows a number of actors in some of their earliest acting gigs, and a lot of them popped up in classic movies or shows and you just didn’t realize who they were at the time. Some of these will mess with your mind, and make you want to go back and rewatch the films to catch their appearances.

You can check out the full gallery below which I believe was initially assembled over at Buzzfeed.
