Okay, not really a bit part, but watched The Goonies last night and I never realised the main kid (the one with asthma) was Sean Astin, aka. Samwise from LotR!!!!

Jerry O'Connell being Verne the fat kid from Stand By Me got me.

Interestingly both Sean Aston and Will Wheaton (the leads from SBM and The Goonies went on to appear in Toy Soldiers together. One of my favourite coming-of-age/terrorist/hostage type movies.

I'm not sure she's that famous, but when watching an epsidoe of Frasier on Ch4 recently, I recognisedLaura Linney, (the main actress from the Big C) as one of Frasier's girl friends.

it's quite possible, many actresses of that sort of age, played his many girlfriends over the years ;)

Two more obscure ones, having just watched Army of Darkness (and finishing off the Evil Dead trilogy box set, picture quality on AoD wasn't remotely as bad as I feared)...

Babylon 5 fans may remember Patricia Tallman from Babylon 5 where she played a telepath in the later seasons. She is also a stuntwoman and played the witch in the cellar in AoD.

And Embeth Davidtz, who plays Ash's love interest has since been in Matilda and more recently plays Peter Parker's mother in the Spider Man reboot.
