Sometimes I see an actor on screen and I just know that I have seen them in something else recently. Usually this feeling does not include the “big names.” I know who many of the A-listers are, I could knock out a mean game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon for most celebrities without too much effort (yes, even without the aid of the interwebs), and I can usually pick out stars in roles before they were famous (I’ll take Ben Affleck in Buffy the Vampire Slayer the movie for $200, Alex). However, it is usually the actors who are either just emerging on the scene or those who often play the supporting roles that make me rack my brain. Typically, I try to figure out what show I recognize them from on my own; but as a last resort, I consult the plethora of online resources (read: imdb).
