Oh this is a great one — Melissa Ponzio plays Melissa McCall aka Scott’s mom on Teen Wolf (and she was Karen on The Walking Dead). But back in 2011, she appeared as a host on WebMD’s Ask the Dermatologist.
Here’s Sylvester Stallone in one of his earliest roles — a 1971 Woody Allen movie called Bananas. Sly played a thug on the subway who Woody Allen’s character throws off the train for taunting passengers with his friend. Of course, this being a Woody Allen movie, the doors open again letting the thugs back inside, and Woody has to run away along the train.
Oh this is adorable. Matt Bomer, best known for playing suave conman Neal Caffrey on White Collar and for being criminally underused in Magic Mike, once modeled for the cover of a book about gay youth called Rainbow Boys by Alex Sanchez. BRB, heading to Amazon and ordering this immediately…
Before he wormed his way into all of our hearts as Nick Miller on New Girl, Jake Johnson rocked a horrible mustache as the Jazz Man in Get Him to the Greek. Seriously, I can’t underscore enough how glad I am he shaved the ‘stache. Yikes.
If you don’t recognize this girl right away, try imagining her with a flannel overshirt and a pair of glasses — figure it out yet? She’s Ariel Winter, best known as Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, but here she is as a pageant girl in an episode of Bones.
My favorite earlier role of hers will always be this one, though. Classic.
You can see Nasim Pedrad being hilarious on Saturday Night Live every week, but one of her first acting credits was as a waitress in a season 6 episode of Gilmore Girls.
This is one of those finds that I’m *pretty* sure most people know about already, but since Chris Hemsworth as Kirk’s father blew everyone’s mind when we shared that, here’s another one that y’all might not be aware of. You know Jennifer Morrison for her roles in Once Upon a Time, House, M.D., or maybe even that one season of How I Met Your Mother...but did you know she played Kirk’s mom, Winona Kirk, in the heart wrenching opening sequence of the 2009 Star Trek reboot?
Jessica Walter, best known for her role in Arrested Development as Lucille Bluth, had a lengthy career before becoming the Bluth family matriarch (or head of ISIS, if you’re more of an Archer fan). Here she is in one of her four appearances on Murder, She Wrote.
Full disclosure: We don’t know what a “Big Time Rush” is, but apparently someone named Kendall Schmidt from Big Time Rush was in an episode of a show we do remember with great fondness: Phil of The Future, where he wore a tie and did a lot of pointing at things.
Many thanks to jenny-elizabeth, who found a very young Eric Dane (aka Dr. Mark Sloane on Grey’s Anatomy) in his first ever (uncredited) role on television, in an episode of Saved By The Bell where he plays an obnoxious teenager from the rival country club to the one the SBTB gang is working at.
Having jobs and doing boring stuff in the real world.
Max Carver, known for his role as one of the sexy, sexy alpha werewolf twins in MTV’s Teen Wolf, appeared without his brother in a season 6 episode of The Office.

Max Greenfield is best known now as Schmidt on New Girl, but he also appeared in a season 2 episode of Castle, playing David Nicolaides, a guy who [spoiler alert] murdered his foster brother for having an affair with his girlfriend. Sounds like a moment for the douchebag jar to me.
