Not sure if this really counts, but I just saw Jeff DeMunn in Chuck Russell's The Blob remake. He's obviously gone on to be in pretty much every Frank Darabont film, plus The Walking Dead (Dale). I'd completely forgotten he was in it.

Shawnee Smith is also in it, albeit in a major role. Paul McCrane pops up as well, although RoboCop had come out the year before so he was probably pretty well-known my then.

Speaking of RoboCop, the film's legendary composer Basil Poledouris appeared in an episode of Star Trek as a red shirt. Here he is second from the left:



RIP maestro.

Can I say my niece who has just landed her first extra role in an as yet unknown project filming in Cornwall?  Just on the off chance that in 20 years time she is collecting an award or two.

A young Kim Katrrel in an episode from the TV series Logan's Run (which is really awful but watchable in a MST3K kind of way).

Just watching episodes of Longmire (the Netflix season is much more back to the first season where each episode is much more of a self contained mystery but with better long running stories and cliffhangers), and googled the lead Robert Taylor, mainly because I wondered about the age gap between him and Ally Walker (she's 2 years older! which is quite amazing not just because she looks younger, but also because TV is so often putting actresses in that are 15 years younger than whatever bloke they are supposed to be falling in love with)...

...where was I? Oh yes, he was in The Matrix as Agent Jones!

Jeff Goldblum in Starsky and Hutch as a movie director. Although it was a few years after Death Wish so maybe he was already one of those 'Hey it's that guy' actors.
