Advertisements I'm using the term "star" loosely, really just meaning actors best known for their work in current or recent series. Seems like I've had a rash of "before they were stars" sightings lately. In every case, they've been people that I had never heard of before their current work on whatever series they're on. But now that I know who they are, I'm seeing them in older work. (Sure, you could just pick someone and go to IMDB to see what they've done, but serendipity is more fun.) For instance, in catching up with Gilmore Girls season four (currently in season six) on DVD, I saw Teddy Dunn, now a regular on Veronica Mars, in a one-episode stint as a date for Rory Gilmore. A couple of days ago, while flipping channels, I paused at the movie Remember the Titans, only to spot Ethan Suplee, now known as Randy on My Name is Earl, playing a college football player. I've had one or two others recently that slip my mind just now, but you get the idea. What actors have you recognized in older work, now that you know who they are due to something newer?
