You might know Salli Richardson-Whitfield as Dr. Allison Blake on SyFy’s Eureka, but did you know she appeared in 2 episodes of Criminal Minds as Tamara Barnes? 

You might know Gina Torres from Firefly or Suits, but how many of you remember her as Emerson’s baby mama in Pushing Daisies?

Maybe this is the wrong place to say this, but I just can’t wait until we can feature her on this blog and credit her with a well-deserved run as Wonder Woman. Just sayin’.

Eddie McClintock can now be seen as the loveable, dorky, sixth-sense toting Warehouse agent on Syfy’s Warehouse 13, but before his government job began, he played a love-interest for Dr. Temperance Brennen on a few episode arc on Bones.

Thanks, thetenthweasley

Rob Benedict is best known for playing Chuck (aka the prophet aka God) on Supernatural but that wasn’t his first encounter with otherworldly creatures. He appeared in two episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a vampire named Jape.

Thanks, injectablefame712


Bianca Lawson has been playing a teenager on TV for 20 years. 

And let’s not forget she can be seen now on MTV’s Teen Wolf. But she’s not 17 there. Hooray for growing up! 

After keeping Neptune safe as Sherrif Keith Mars on Veronica Mars, Enrico Colantoni appeared as a night security guard in a 2010 episode of Bones. The episode also starred former Veronica Mars alum Francis Capra as a suspect.

Thanks, thetenthweasley!

Sam Witwer is most famously know for his role as one of the main characters in Being Human (US). But those of you re-watching Angel season 4 (episode 18) with a keen eye, might have spotted him as John Stoler, a dude trying to kill a higher being who is later admitted to the psychiatric ward.

Thanks, im-on-the-pursuit-of-happiness43!

I will go to my grave insisting that Josie and the Pussycats is one of the most underrated teen movies of all time. And here is a sentence in which I’ll pretend I don’t also secretly enjoy MTV’s Teen Wolf reboot. And here is a sentence for people who fall smack in the center of the Teen Wolf/Josie and the Pussycats fandom venn diagram: JR Bourne, who plays werewolf hunter Chris Argent in Teen Wolf is the owner of a shop selling things that are orange in Josie and the Pussycats


You might recognize David Harewood best as David Estes, [spoiler redacted] Director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center on Showtime’s Homeland, but while rewatching Doctor Who: The End of Time last night, I shouted “OH SHIT!” at my TV screen (and probably scared the crap out of my neighbors) when he appeared as Joshua Naismith, the billionaire who helped to resurrect The Master. But seriously though, at this point there are so many Brits on Homeland you could tell me Mandy Pantinkin is a North London native and I’d probably believe you. 


You know him best as the Vice President of America, but back in 1993 then-Senator Joe “America’s Happiest Warrior” Biden made an inexplicable appearance on Carmen Sandiego

Tyler Hoechelin is brooding sourwolf Derek Hale on MTV’s Teen Wolf, but before sprouting fur and claws (and a raging hardon for Stiles) he was Martin Brewer on 7th Heaven, seen here opposite Haylie Duff

You might recognize Holland Roden as the super-smart, absolutely fabulous, little-bit-crazy, and werewolf immune teenager Lydia Martin from MTV’s Teen Wolf reboot, but if you’re a fan of LOST, you knew her first as a young Emily Locke (played as a grown up by Pushing Daisies' Swoosie Kurtz).

Melora Hardin, who you probably know as Jan on The Office, appeared in an episode of Friends (The One With The Stoned Guy) as Celia, a woman seeing Ross who is really into dirty talk. Still don’t remember her? Maybe you’ll remember her by her nickname, “The Bug Lady,” after her job as the curator of insects at the museum where Ross works.

Simon Helberg is Howard Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory but back in the 90s he appeared on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch as the owner of a website that let users change the past. So, definitely not typecast then.

Thanks, tomasingo!
