Strangest realisation?

Recommended Posts

There is nothing like watching Crystal Maze when you are young, to then find out that Richard O'Brien wrote Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Or am I wrong? Any other strange realizations or links between things you've watched.

Alex from Supergirl is the nerdy girl turned goth slut in the video for Marilyn Manson's version of Tainted Love.

I only found out the other week that the guy with the glasses in Big Bang Theory was the kid from Christmas Vacation. Blew my mind.

I guess it's not really a "realization" and more just crazy to look at his IMDb but George Miller's filmography is wild. Not only did he direct the Mad Max movies but he has also directed Babe: Pig in the City and the Happy Feet movies.

I've definitely got a better one than this, but BBC randomly added The Fades to their boxed sets recently, and I barely watched it the first time so definitely didn't click that the leads were Daniel Kaluuya and Fitz from SHIELD. Natalie Dormer was in it too. I reckon all three are now a tad richer.

Paulie Walnuts from Sopranos has a brief appearance in Goodfellas. Well, not the character himself but the actor. It's not a huge leap considering how many actors from Goodfellas appeared in the Sopranos. 

Oh, Penelope Spheeris created the Decline of Western Civilization documentaries. Then she had huge success with Waynes World. 

George Carlin as a narrator for Thomas and Friends, crazy.

Never knew Hodor was in the background for a few scenes in the first episode of Game of Thrones until I restarted my watchthrough.

Not strictly an actress, but years ago having the Jonathan Ross show on in the background and looking up when hearing a familiar sounding voice to see the model Agyness Deyn he was interviewing was known to me as Laura Hollins from 6th form with whom I got to second base with at a party.

That Walter White is Hal the whacky dad in Malcom in the Middle.

I actually figured this one out 10 seconds into breaking bad since I was a big fan of his as Malcolm's dad.

In fact, for whatever reason, everytime I watch new movies/series I tend to be like "Where do I know you from?" and I don't stop until I remember it. That's why I've spent many years finding every character from Freaks and Geeks on every comedy movie/series since then. :shifty:

Rewatching True Lies and finding that Eliza Dushku from Buffy was the kid.

Realizing years later that Allison Mack from Smallville, was the little kid complimenting Proctor on his bus driving skills in Police Academy 6.

Going through random cheesy movies a few years ago and finding out that Madeline Zima from the Nanny was one of the kids in the Hulk Hogan movie Mr Nanny. :P

That's a great shout @Beeker00Zero! I didn't make that connection for a few seasons of GoT.

I do that all the time too, I'm constantly googling actors to see what I know them from. I'm rewatching Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the other night had "The Pontiac Bandit Returns" on, only realising now on like the 4th viewing that Tito Ruiz, the druglord, is actually one of the Moncada brothers who play the Salamanca Twins in Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul.

I think you misunderstand. Hal is Walter White. Walter White was the new identity he assumed after he had a mental break and abandoned Lois and the kids. Heisenberg was just another manifestation of that psychosis.

I basically live on IMDB when watching anything now, massive victim of "what's he off" syndrome. 

Ooh, I know a good one, El Guapo's main henchman in Three Amigos played Santiago Munez's dad in Goal!

Realizing that Allison Mack from Smallville is the leader of your weird sex cult.

The guy who directed Slither directed Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Slither Slugs are in the Collectors... collection

In a really stupid one: The evil Russian from Taken 3 I knew I recognized from somewhere but couldn't quite figure out, until I realized I had already seen Taken 3 and that's where I knew him from.

Turanga Leela is Peggy Bundy

It took me years and years to register that it was Samuel L. Jackson in Jurassic Park because he’s not just playing Samuel L. Jackson.
