Matthew McConaughey in Unsolved Mysteries (1992)
McConaughey appeared in an episode of the TV show, where he proceeded to mow a lawn shirtless and then get murdered. YIKES. We’re glad that even though he played someone who was killed, his career continued to flourish.
Ryan Gosling in Are You Afraid of the Dark? (1995)
It’s hard to imagine a time when Ryan Gosling wasn’t…well, Ryan Gosling. But long before he was singing with Emma Stone or being a badass in Blade Runner, he was on Nickelodeon’s most terrifying show.
Jennifer Lawrence in Monk (2006)
J.Law played “mascot” in an episode of Monk and it honestly makes me love her more. She had one line and was dressed in a ridiculous costume.
Will Smith in Blossom (1991)
Will Smith played the Fresh Prince on an episode of Blossom and it’s the crossover we didn’t know we needed. Both of their hat games are very strong.
Reese Witherspoon in The Man In The Moon (1991)
If you haven’t seen this movie, I can’t suggest it enough. It’s Witherspoon’s first role and she’s absolutely spectacular in it. Who doesn’t love a good coming-of-age story?
The next celeb and their early role is truly hilarious.
