I'm a little slow. I just realized that Lin Shaye is:

The repulsive landlady in Kingpin.

And was also the over-tanned neighbor in There's Something About Mary.

I was watching "That Thing You Do!" last night and caught Bryan Crankston making a short appearance as Gus Grissom.

He's on screen for like 5 seconds before the band plays the TV show.

Later, he played Buzz Aldrin in HBO's From the Earth to the Moon - which was a Hanks/Howard/Grazer production.

Flipping and caught "Pearl Harbor" for about five minutes. Took me another minute to realize that Michael Shannon (General Zod from MOS) was one of the plane mechanics.

She also plays the dog lady Ms. Newborn (ms noogybower according to Harry) at the beginning of Dumb and Dumber. I guess the Farrelly's think she is funny. And she is.

This may have been mentioned before, but the holiday season revealed that the son, Rusty, on Christmas Vacation now plays Leonard on Big Bang Theory.

What's embarrassing is that I've rewatched both series over the past year and it didn't dawn on me they were both played by Jeffrey Combs.

Also Rob McElhenney from Always Sunny was in this old anti-smoking commercial from like 1995. I remember seeing it in middle school.
