Jenny Hanley, presenter of Magpie and daughter of Cliff Hanley (he who wrote the words to Scotland the Brave) was a Bond Burd appearing as the Irish/Scottish burd in OHMSS.

Clearly a pre internet urban myth there...

I'd doubt Cliff would have let his son become a Tory MP!

Watched Jagged Edge last night and was surprised when I saw Michael Dorn's name in the closing credits. Unrecognisable as the assistant DA in the courtroom scenes.

Rikki Fulton turning up in Gorky Park really took me by surprise when I first saw it too and, aye, he was surprisingly good.

Did I hallucinate the whole thing, or does Basic Instinct 2 start off with Stan Collymore getting a gobble off Sharon Stone?  :o

Seen him in a couple of things and only recognised him from his voice.

I find it inconceivable that no one has mentioned Mandy Patinkin.

Erm...everyone knows he is in The Princess Bride.

This one is less obvious.

Ainsley Harriott, known mainly for his popularity on Scottish football forums, was in an episode of Red Dwarf.

Nightmare on Elm Street director Wes Craven learned his trade working on the sets of porn films, and would occasionally appear in on-screen roles.

Brian Tildsley from Coronation Street was in Robocop 2.

I did not know about Ainsley Harriott in red dwarf.

Slightly off topic, but Robert Englund auditioned for Luke Skywalker. When he didn't get it, he mentioned the part to his flat mate ... Mark Hamill

Similarly, Jackie Earle Haley was up for a part in A Nightmare on Elm Street, and his mate tagged along to the audition so they could hang out afterwards. The casting director saw the friend, asked him to audition, and gave the role to him instead. Wonder what Johnny Depp's up to these days anyway?

Quarter of a century later, Jackie Earle Haley would find himself cast in Robert Englund's old role in the Nightmare on Elm Street remake.

I remember that! Even when on-screen for a second, he sticks out like a sore thumb.

I watched it tonight for about the fourth or fifth time but I'd never noticed him before.
