Cool Videos: 25 actors before they were famous and the 25 greatest unscripted scenes in film

08.16.2011

Today, we bring you a two-fer of video coolness!

If you've ever wanted to see some of your favorite (and not so favorite) actors and actresses before they were famous, YouTuber 'pleatedjeans' has compiled a fun 3-minute video showcasing 25 actors and their often forgotten (and sometimes embarrassing) beginnings. Sarah Jessica Parker, whoa!

Meanwhile, 'mewlists' has put together a very cool list of the 25 greatest unscripted movie scenes (though "improvised" is probably a much better word to describe how these actually came to be). As the video will note, be sure to keep the YouTube annotations on for a brief explanation of how exactly the improvisation in each scene occurs.

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Is it me though?

I definitely enjoyed the 25 Unscripted scenes, but it seemed more like Unscripted lines. Save for anything Bill Murray did in Caddyshack (The scene in Carl's "house" with Ty being one of my favs of all-time), they just seem like 3 second snip-its. Enjoyable nonetheless. And if you're gonna post a movie of Jack Black's before he was famous, at least make it Airborne. Now that is a lost 90's classic. Ok, I'm done venting for the evening. Now back to your regularly scheduled comments.

Sorry for double post but Jon Favreau was also in Batman Forever as Bruce Wayne's entourage during his visit to Wayne Tech department. No dialogue though.

Great article and fury159 just beat me to it... how in effing hell could you have left out the Raiders swordsman scene!?

Anyway - does the guy whipping out his weenus at the end of Teen Wolf count as unscripted?

25 actors - Jon Favreau in PCU
25 improvised - Harrison Ford in "Raiders" when he shoots the swordsman. It wasn't dialogue, though I was shocked it still didn't make it.

They could have included Jackie Chan in an earlier role when he was in Enter The Dragon with Bruce Lee in '73. He was in it for about 4 seconds until Bruce snapped his neck :)

Affleck

I can't find the scene on Youtube but Ben Affleck appeared in the final basketball scene of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

Jack Black was so thin. If Daniel Craig watched this video, he'd probably laugh at his own hair style. And John Cusack looks like The Beatles.

Brando

How about Brando's glove play with Eva Marie Saint in On The Waterfront. Saint accidently drops her glove and Brando picks it up and continues the conversation as if nothing happened. He never misses a beat. Brilliant acting. [link]

One of my favorites is in The Quick and the Dead when Gene Hackman decided to slap Sharon Stone in the face with his gloves. It was unscripted and unrehearsed, and that's real surprise and anger you see in Stone's face as well as Crowe having to hold her back. Hackman and Stone weren't getting along on the set, and that scene kind of upped the tension.

Also forgot the Raiders of the Lost Ark line, "It's not the years, it's the mileage." Ford's improv once again.

I didn't know the hospital explosion misfire in TDK was improvised. Wicked.

Great videos, but how did Stallone's grand performance in "Kitty and Stud's" not make the cut?
