    Having just watched Blade II for the first time, I was shocked to see Luke Goss (from Bros) feature in the credits as they rolled up the screen. He played none other than Nomak :eek:

    Anyone else got any "cor blimey" moments of a similar vein, with actors featured in movies that you never realised were there? :D

    Slightly off topic I have noticed actor that have not been credited such as Jason Robards in Enemy Of The State and Emilio Estevezin in Mission Impossible.

    the one which surprised me more than anything else when i read it was that the twins from the first couple of series of "better homes" were playing the latest baddies in Matrix reloaded - apparantly they are the only identical twins in the world who are black belts in martial arts

    Oh come on! That doesn't count.

    Here's a tip: Look at the front cover or the poster before watching :p

    Well, if you are going to be like that! It was widely known that him from Bros was in Blade 2 - he went round all the chat shows etc when it was released telling everyone that he's a Hollywood star now! :rolleyes:

    I missed all that! :eek:

    He's not on the front cover though, so it was a shock to me. I didn't even recognise him in his drag outfit - it was only when the credits rolled up at the end :D

    I watched Enemy Of The State on DVD a while ago (haven't seen it for years). I was surprised when I saw Jason Lee (Kevin Smith films) Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Seth Green (Austin Powers, Buffy) and Jack Black (Tenacious D :eek:). I'm sure there are a lot more uncredited actors as well (Gabriel Byrne being one!)

    I had no idea until I rewatched it :)

    I too missed Jack Black the first time I watched Enemy of the State at the cinema. It was only when I rewatched it on DVD that I realised it was him (but then I'd never really heard of him at the time I saw it in the cinema).

    Jack Black also plays a white rasta in "I still Know what you did last Summer" - I was surprised to see him in that :D



    Here's one Garrett might be able to answer for me ...

    Stan Lee was in Mallrats and I was surprised they managed to get him to contribute to that movie. So I was thinking... is Jason Lee the son of Stan Lee??

    you will find that Stan lee is avery close friend of kevin Smiths, Kevin Smith writes storys for Daredevil comics (A Marvel charecter) as well as movies so there is a connection there. I Have a DVD called Stan lee's Mutants, Monsters and Marvels, that is co-presented by Kevin Smith.

    As for him being Jason lees Dad I dont think so but have you tried looking in the trivia section on IMDB

    Are Jamie Oliver and Mick Jagger related, or Juliet Morris and David Bowie ?
    Luke Goss in Blade 2, yes I thought he was working in a Muswell Hill kebab emporium these days...
    Hannibal, Gary Oldman surprised me !

    Gary Oldman in Hannibal. Nicole Kidman in The Hours - that nose!
    Loads of others but my mind is a-glow with whirling transient nodes of thought, careening through a cosmic vapor of invention...

    Here for you Squirrel is the low down on Jason Lee - he used to be a profesional skateboarder - big time - signed to S.M.A./Blind/and many other companies,I used to own a skateboard shop and he was one of our biggest sellers,so when I saw it was him in Mallrats it was :eek: and from there on he has gone onto big time acting - well done to him I say :smashin:

    Watching Joyride/Roadkill the other night and I recognised the cafe owner who tells the two naked guys to leave, he's none other than the long haired biker who Arnie steals clothes, boots and a motorcycle from :)

    I was really surprised when I heard that Donnie Wahlberg from the 80's band "New Kids on the Block" played Vincent Grey (The weird guy at the beginning) in the Sixth Sense. :eek:

    He apparantly lost 43 pounds for the role.

    Now, I wasn't a NKOTB fan, but I would have thought I would have recognised one of them seeing as my sister had posters of them all over the place ! :laugh:

    Jason Isaacs was the surgeon at the end of resident evil! and is set to play William Birkin in the Nemesis sequel. (that will mean something if you've played the games.)
