Premiering in 1999 on NBC, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit was billed as the grittier, more "ripped from modern headlines" companion show to Law and Order, and man has it delivered.
With a beloved cast of recurring characters and new mysteries to solve each week, the show's remained a staple on TV for almost 20 years, so much so that some actors even showed up on there before they were big! In particular, these 15 appearances either caught us off guard at the time, or when we look back on them now.
1) Before she became a movie star (along with her sister), Kate Mara appeared in the show's second season.
2) Bradley Cooper showed up before he was big in Hollywood.
3) Will and Grace star Eric McCormack guest-starred as a murder suspect. Somehow we're not surprised.
4) Sabrina herself, Melissa Joan Hart, appeared as a teacher suspected of sexually assaulting her students.
5) Whoopi Goldberg played a businesswoman who falsely reported child abuse.
6) Bob freaking Saget himself played a murder suspect in season 8!
7) Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons had a recurring role in the first two seasons!
The cameos just get crazier from here folks...
8) Norman Reedus appeared as a rock star on the show, before he was a rock star in our hearts.
9) It wasn't until 2011, but John Stamos had an appearance on the show!
10) Before she was guarding the galaxy, Zoe Saldana appeared on the show in 2004.
11) Elizabeth Banks was the prime suspect in a murder investigation.
12) Hayden Panettiere was actually two different characters between 2001 and 2005!
13) Amanda Seyfried played a sexual assault survivor in 2004.
14) Only on SVU could Carol Burnett be accused of killing her husband.
15) And of course, we can't forget that Jeremy Irons appeared on the show twice.
Mustaches were ever present in the 80s. It seemed like everyone knew someone with a big ol' mustache just chilling out under their nose. They weren't like the overly elaborate ones like you see now, these were large, bushy and excessive in all the best ways. But who did it best? There are a lot of fancy mustachioed men, but who was the ultimate? Check out the list below and vote for who you think deserves the mustache crown. Freddie MercuryHis talent is so vast that no one feature could possibly express his awesomeness, but that mustache does come close.
Arguably one of the best family comedies of all time, Mrs. Doubtfire was really just a gift to this world. Robin Williams brings his A-game to a premise that could have gone so very wrong, but instead, it became a classic that is still adored to this day. The movie came out over 20 years ago, but children and adults both love it and for good reason.

There is arguably no better binge-worthy show than The Office. Regardless of how many times I've seen it, I will never get tired of listening to Michael Scott dig himself into a hole, or watching Jim prank Dwight to extreme levels.

If you grew up in the 90s, there is no doubt that you remember Animaniacs. It was one of the best cartoons on television by far, and apparently they are coming back.
