Everybody's career has to start somewhere, even for Hollywood royalty. You know the faces, but do you know where they started out? Take a look and find out!
1) Ryan Gosling - Sean Hanlon, Breaker High
Before Baby Goose became Hollywood royalty and an internet darling, he starred in this bizarre Canadian teen sitcom about kids who go to high school on a cruise ship.
The show ran for 44 episodes and ultimately didn't amount to much, but much like Drake's role on Degrassi, Canadians have never let Gosling live this one down.
2) Michelle Pfeiffer - Stephanie Zinone, Grease 2
A year before she played Al Pacino's wife in Scarface, and years before she'd don a leather catsuit and fight Michael Keaton in Batman Returns, Michelle Pfeifer starred as one of the Pink Ladies in this little-known sequel to Grease.
Pfeiffer essentially plays the main character, who is honestly a much better role model than Olivia Newton-John's Sandy from the first movie. She is the leader of the Pink Ladies and isn't afraid to go against tradition to live her own life. Her trademark sass and amazing acting chops make her the absolute highlight of the movie.
3) Jack Nicholson - Wilbur Force, Little Shop of Horrors
Long before he was quoting Johnny Carson and questioning our abilities to handle the truth, Jack Nicholson had a role in the original 1960s adaptation of the hit musical.
His character, Wilbur Force, is a masochistic dental patient who loves having his teeth examined. Would you believe this is one of the least unsettling roles he's had?
4) Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson - Kyle and Francesca, The Perfect Score
We know them best these days as costumed superheroes Captain America and Black Widow, but Chris and Scarlett first teamed up in the teen comedy The Perfect Score.
The movie is about a group of teens who try to break into Princeton and steal the answers to their upcoming SATs. Chris plays the charming leader of the group, while Scarlett is the haughty daughter of the owner of the building.
5) Laurence Fishburne - Cowboy Curtis, Pee-Wee's Playhouse
You probably remember Laurence Fishburne best as the stoic Morpheus from The Matrix, so would you believe he got his start in kids shows?
That's right, Fishburne regularly appeared on Pee-Wee's Playhouse as Cowboy Curtis, Pee-Wee's cowboy friend who dressed like a parody of John Wayne while also sporting a jheri curl mullet.
Those aren't the only early roles you'll wish you'd known sooner...
