    I know that Johnny Depp didn’t actually plan to try out for his part in “Nightmare”–He got cast after driving a friend to the audition.

    Are these all movies where a future star was cast by accident, as it were?Report

    Thursday hint: you’ve really got to actually watch the movies in order to get the information you need. It drives me up the wall that IMDB doesn’t collect this information, because it seems like it wouldn’t be that hard for it to do so.Report

      Wait, I need to watch the movies in the order you listed them, or in the order they were released?
      (Just kidding, this has me stumped. I can get half way there on this [first films, famous] but the other half is killing me.)Report

    Friday hint: This almost always appears in the opening credits, and almost never in closing credits. It only (but not always) appears in relation to an actor who has not had a significant role in a motion picture previously.Report
