Freeks and geeks was a great show that got terrible ratings and was yanked off the air after the first season
its great to see so many of its stars go on to other projects

Honestly, most of the people in Tombstone were already stars when that came out.

What about Silverado? Movie had a nice mix of current stars and some up and comers? Including Danny Glover(pre-Lethal Weapon) and a young Kevin Costner.

What about an episode of "Amazing Stories" called "The Mission" with a young Costner and Keifer Sutherland as part of a B-17 crew over Europe. Episode was done before either became big.

Marshall from "How I Met Your Mother" was in there also. Plus, Seth will be in the next Kevin Smith movie. Also, the sister was on ER.

Seth was also in Donnie Darko. You know that instant cult classic from a few years back.

Im pretty sure most of the Colonial Marines in 'Aliens' hadn't had much work prior to that film, guys like Bill Paxton are major stars now.

Everyone in Reservoir Dogs except for Harvey Keitel and Lawrence Tierney were pretty much unknowns, pre-release.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer:

Allison Hannigan,
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Michelle Tractenburg

The rest of the cast fell into a black hole, though. Kind of unfortunate from a show that re-defined TV.
