Also...Rene Zellwegger and Matthew McConaughey both starred in the straight-to-video Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.


McConaughey was in Dazed and Confused a year before Texas Chainsaw.

Jim Carrey - He was in a movie called Once Bitten, Twice Shy.

It was about Vampires, but I don't remember the plot. 1st PG-13 movie I ever saw.

Not that it was a terrible movie, as I really enjoy it, but a Michael Keaton/Henry Winkler picture, Night Shift (also with a young Shelley Long) had Costner in a complete background role:

That was a great movie. Keaton had a decent comedy run in the 80's.

Brad Pitt had a guest starring role on Growing Pains as well. He played a rockstar who was a douchebag that Ben idolized


Shia LaBeouf


Juliette Lewis and Mayim Biyalk were on the Facts of Life towards the end when they were trying to spin off into a new show with younger kids at actual boarding school and not a bunch of 30 year old women all living together with some old lady

Crazy arse movie. I remember seeing it when I was young and then seeing it after Mask had come out.

I liked Carrey on In living Color. But that vampire movie was crazy. By having sex in a coffin he was cured of becoming a vampire? The scene when he orders his burger raw. yuck

The movie was Once Bitten. I went to go see that movie and the ticket person asked me to show proof of age for a PG-13 movie. Those were teh early days of PG-13.


Once Bitten, Twice Shy was a horrible song by a crappy band called Great White.

I'm not sure I would call Peter Scolari a star.
