Extras That Made it "Big"

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
So I was watching What About Bob this morning and there is a scene where he has someone fake a phone call to Richard Dreyfus and the "hooker" that he uses in the actress that played Janet Soprano (Tony's sister in the series).
Gave me a little chuckle as I thought she was probably just some walk in then to a Hollywood casting agency to get that part and then 10 years later would have a pretty regular role on one of the best shows ever.

Who else do you randomly see popping up when you watch 70-90s movies?

Paul Giamatti in Singles (making out with a girl in a restaurant.

Bill Paxton in the Terminator.

Brad Pitt was an extra in Less than Zero and Renee Zellweger in Dazed and Confused. Couldn't pick either out, though.

Isn't this how just about every actor starts out?

Nothing to do with the thread, but at the time you would have found me doing exactly the same thing, in exactly the same uniform.
