What movie or television show had the best "before they were stars" cast?
The amazing thing about so many shows and movies is that they may feature a superstar nobody has heard about yet. Across the years of on-screen entertainment, which movie or TV show had the best cast "before they were stars"?
21 Jump Street is first thing that came to mind. Sure, Johnny Depp was the only member of the cast that went on to bigger things. But, still... Johnny Depp.
Moonlighting was Bruce Willis' first real role, too.
Hard to pick one but I can think of a few-the 1990s installment of the Mickey Mouse Club is a blatant example. Even if you don't like any of the stars that came out of it, you can't deny their influence on popular culture. Another 1990s show that launched several mega stars was In Living Color.
Non variety shows I would name Freaks and Geeks which pretty much includes a good majority of the Judd Apatow posse.
By far the "Outsiders." I mean the cast are all stars now. Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze R.I.P., Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Diane Lane and C. Thomas Howell. Sorry if I forgot anyone.
That casting director deserves a medal. What a group.
It was before they were known. I think the movie was made in 1983.
I know. He/she must've seen the talent before anyone else did.

What fall television show are you most looking forward to?For me, I would have to say The Walking Dead. I absolutely adore this show, and can't wait to see where they take it in season 3. My runner up would have to be Homeland. Season 1 was amazing, I can't even imagine where it...

Over the years I have enjoyed South Park, (It took me a while to get used to the graphics,) The Simpsons, American Dad, The Hill, Drawn Together, Family Guy and others because that writing is so damn good.I don't watch crime shows, but my guess is some of the writing is clever and well constructed...
