Before They Were Famous: Adam Scott on 'Boy Meets World'

Before he was an Adult Child of Divorce, before he even knew how to park or recreate, and certainly before he was anyone's stepbrother, Adam Scott was a big ol' bully. Get More »

Before They Were Famous: Casey Affleck in '80s TV Show

Casey Affleck PBS

It's hard to believe Casey Affleck turns the big 3-8 this week, just four days before his latest film, "Ain't Them Body Saints," hits theaters. It feels like we've watched the youngest Affleck grow up right before our very eyes. His first big-screen role came in "To Die For" (1995), opposite future bro-in-law Joaquin Phoenix. And then there are his collaborations with the elder Affleck, Ben, in films like "Chasing Amy" (1997), "Good Will Hunting" (1997) and "Gone Baby Gone" (2007). Get More »

Before They Were Famous: Aubrey Plaza as 'Teen Hag'

If you've ever wanted to tweet something to Aubrey Plaza using, say, her real name, you're not gonna have much luck. Instead, fans of the "Parks and Rec" and "The To Do List" star know to @ the actress @ a more unconventional Twitter handle: @evilhag.

But how does one come up with such a… unique name? We may have just found the answer. Get More »

Watch 11-Year-Old Shailene Woodley on 'The O.C.'

Welcome (back) to the O.C., bitch.

If the strains of Phantom Planet's "California" (here we come, right back where we started from, etc.) have been echoing through your dreams lately, it's no coincidence: Josh Schwartz's "The O.C.," which updated the classic soap opera format for teen audiences and introduced us to the indelible Seth Cohen, Ryan Atwood and Marissa Cooper, among other characters, debuted 10 years ago today.

Of course, those in the libidinous Southern Californian crew (who somehow maintained their razor-sharp hipbones even though all we ever saw them eat literally ever was bagels and vodka) weren't the only fresh faces on the scene when the show premiered. There was also bratty little sister Kaitlin Cooper, a.k.a. Shailene Woodley. Get More »

Watch Pre-Teen Paul Walker on '80s Kids Game Show 'I'm Telling!'

Paul Walker on I'm Telling! NBC

With "Fast & Furious 6" hitting theaters this weekend and a release date for a seventh "Fast" film already announced (July 11, 2014, for the record), Paul Walker's days of racing cars are far from over. As undercover agent Brian O'Conner, Walker hit the ground running — uh, speeding — back in 2001 with the first film in the hit franchise. In the latest installment, the full crew (including Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez) is back at it again, putting the pedal to the metal for yet another rush of adrenaline.

See Baby Leonardo DiCaprio Audition for 'The Outsiders'

Darren Julien and Martin Nolan of Julien's Auction House brought a valuable property with them to "Today," where Matt Lauer was bestowed early audition tapes featuring A-list movie stars. Three casting directors have released these 54 tapes to the public, and if you have $2000-$4000 bucks to spare (as Julien estimates the bidding prices), you may need a very good reason to buy a VCR...or a VHS-to-DVD converter.

Video: When Jennifer Aniston Starred in 'Leprechaun'

We're sure that whenever someone brings up "Leprechaun," Jennifer Aniston just laughs it off in her weirdly aggressive, somewhat entitled way, but you know that deep down she's completely seething. She certainly loses some points on our scorecard for not fully embracing her B-movie horror past — what, "The Bounty Hunter" was so much better?

"Leprechaun" was unleashed upon unsuspecting theaters in January 1993, more than a year before Aniston would first appear as Rachel Green on what was destined to be the long-running sitcom "Friends" (and at least a few months after her run as Jeannie Bueller on the short-lived "Ferris Bueller" TV show — remember that?). In the scene above, she descends into a filthy basement carrying a tray of iced tea for two, succumbing to Irish madness with calling out for her imaginary friend "Nathan," whom she also later references as the lusty Leprechaun caresses her luscious legs. Oh, the delusions of youth.

Actually, that's not what's going on at all, but does it really matter? LEPRECHAUN FOREVER. Come on, Jen.

Watch Keri Russell on 'The Mickey Mouse Club' in 1993

In this weekend's "Dark Skies," Keri Russell plays a mother who battles relentless demons  wreaking havoc inside her family's suburban home.

Ian McShane: Panty Dropper

Fact: It is impossible to avert your gaze when Ian McShane is staring at you.

Anyone familiar with Ian McShane’s Golden Globe winning role as the profanity-spewing, hard drinking Al Swearengen on HBO’s "Deadwood" shouldn't be remotely surprised that intense, gritty characters have been Ian McShane’s bread and butter for quite some time. Surely his knack for bringing swarthy, murderous types to life has aided him in being cast as the embittered dwarf king Beith in "Snow White and the Huntsman" and his latest curmudgeonly role as King Brahmwell in "Jack the Giant Slayer."

However, a careful look at McShane's decades-long career reveals a few nuggets of evidence that it isn't quite all malevolence and danger behind those beady eyes. Could it be possible that all of these latter-day seething character roles are actually hiding the longing, romantic heart of a true ladies' man? Get More »

Watch Josh Duhamel on 'All My Children' in 1999


Josh Duhamel definitely knows how to woo the ladies. Before anyone could "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton," the actor's very first role was on a daytime soap opera smooth-talking women to get what he wanted.

In 1999, a blonde, 27-year-old Duhamel got his big break as playboy Leo du Pres on "All My Children." Love, betrayal, and revenge were all part of Leo's storyline for three years until he was killed off in 2002, which really meant Duhamel decided to leave the small screen so he could pursue bigger things. Luckily, it worked in his favor. Get More »
