Yeah, I'm surprised this wasn't the first one mentioned. Matthew McConaughey really caught his big break through this one. It's actually a cool story.

Maybe this isn't quite a "ton"of up and comers, but Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger were both in "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation," which sat on a shelf for a couple of years until both of them became famous...

Proof that everyone's gotta start somewhere, I guess. :D

and of course Harrison Ford

Loved that show! That show deserved a better fate. I believe it was only on for one season.

Great film! Although this is Mr. Ford's debut, he wasn't a starring role, just a mysterious drag racer. I'd say "Star Wars" was his breakthrough role.
