That Guy Who Was In That Thing

Postby Thad » Thu Feb 26, 2015 11:47 am

Because I completely forgot Steve Buscemi was on Pete and Pete.

X-Files is just full of "Oh wow, it's that guy!" moments. I remembered the one where Ryan Reynolds gets killed in the cold open, but I did not remember that one of the girls who killed him went on to play Laurie on That '70s Show. Coincidentally, the following episode features Kurtwood Smith.

Also, Jack Black playing the hapless best friend of Giovanni Ribisi with Thor powers.

The biggest one for me in recent years was when I went back and watched Witness starring Harrison Ford and the Amish Woman he corrupts and seduces and I was like Holy shit what Aragorn

Now that's an awkward role to get typecast in.

Listen, she made a lot of money playing an Amish Woman who Harrison Ford seduces and corrupts over the years, and in my opinion she brought something new to each role. The variety of passionate, smoldering bonnets, for one.

More X-Files:

Teenage girl abducted by creepy photographer: Jewel Staite, later Kaylee on Firefly.

Young Chinese woman with leukemia: Lucy Alexis Liu, who would go on to drop the "Alexis" from her screen credit.

(Same episode as Lucy Liu: Chinese gangster: James Hong. But that's like saying "Same episode as Lucy Liu: water: wet." I'd be more surprised to see a Chinese gangster NOT played by James Hong.)

I finally remembered where I'd first seen Jon Favreau! He played a millionaire who dated Monica on Friends.
