Abigail the lab-lass in NCIS played a  waitress in  Frasier's Cafe Nervosa

Leonard from Big Bang Theory was Rusty Griswald in one of Chevy Chase's vacations

Re-watching Minder on ITV4 has been good for spotting a lot of our own.

Just watched Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and saw a few more...

Iain Glen, currently the loyal servant of the dragon lady in Game of Thrones, was the lead bad guy.

Daniel Craig, a few years before Layer Cake brought him to most of our attention (and led to 007).

And a quite young Julian Rhind-Tutt, before he became the heart throb in comedy series Green Wing, and many a credit card advert.

One of my guilty pleasures from way back "Can't buy Me Love" Starring Patrick Dempsey has a very young Seth Green (Family Guy,Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) playing his younger brother.

Saw Greg Kinnear in a non-speaking role, an incoherent reporter at a press conference in an 1991 episode of LA Law, blink and you miss him in the teaser of Spleen it to me, Lucy

Steve Buscemi's in the same episode as a psychopathic killer on death row.

Batman Begins (yes I've started the trilogy) has two.

Jack Gleeson, aka Joffrey in Game of Thrones, appears as the young boy who gets saved by Batman.

And probably less of a big star, Mark Boone Junior, aka Bobby from Sons of Anarchy, is a dirty cop. Though apparently he is also in Memento which I'd be mentioning if I had that on Blu-ray and had watched it before Batman. :)

"Russell Crowe appeared in Neighbours"

Just watched Gladiator, and Tommy Flanagan (Chibs, Scottish guy) from Sons of Anarchy was in it.

Nicholas Lyndhurst was a Nazi in the best ever storyline in The Tomorrow People, complete with dodgy German accent.

Your giving your age away with the Tomorrow People, he he, I remember this Si-Fi series, was it not targeted for older children, but still a bit dark in storylines? 

Just checked wikipedia (created 1973, that far back, gasp!), was in Oz at the time, did not goto UK till 1977, so it must have been showing there, along with Blue Peter, Doctor Who and the Real Avengers (with Steed & Emma Peel). We tended to get all the UK stuff on TV. And you lot got in return Skippy the bush kangaroo, and the Flying Doctor

Saw Kubrick's Lolita this week, and the nurse in it was Lois Maxwell, aka Miss Moneypenny, actually the role she did immediately before that.

Carrying on with Kubrick... Watched Full Metal Jacket last night, obviously early roles for various actor regulars, but two worth mentioning.

The first is Vincent D'Onofrio who plays the tall dumb private, he also plays Edgar in Men in Black (the guy who gets his skin inhabited by the nasty alien). That guy has a good range!

The other one is Arliss Howard, who anyone that saw Rubicon will recognise.

My husband has been watching an old sitcom on ITV3 this week called "Faith in the Future", starring Linda Bellingham and Julia Sawalha. It dates from 1996. I was quite amused to spot Simon Pegg playing a young geek. It was one of his earliest TV roles before he hit the big time.
