Celebrities, they're just like us! As in, a long time ago, no one would recognize them when they had small roles in movies or TV shows you barely remember. This compilation features 25 well known actors in unknown cameos.
Famous on the Internets
(Warning: A few vulgar words are used, but by definition of some standards, it's still safe for work.)
Sure, Mario may have had humble beginnings as a construction worker rescuing Pauline from a runaway primate, but since his subsequent adventures in the Mushroom Kingdom, the famous plumber has definitely become "The Man" over the years and he's not digging this Angry Birds phenomenon.
This take on The Godfather, which shows the war between the console veterans and their new smartphone app nemeses is brilliant. Although, it would have been better served with a scene depicting failed Sega mascot, Alex Kidd getting gunned down at the tollbooth while he tries to play rock, paper, scissors with his assailants.
Characters from the 2010 cult monster flick, The Troll Hunter have found themselves in one of the original Star Wars trilogy's most famous scenes. This ridiculously impressive achievement in editing is the work of Norwegian graphic artist, Rune Spaans, who seamlessly erased Luke and Vader and re-composited the Troll Hunter characters. It's a sight to see.
For comic book fans, excitement over The Avengers movie has been building since Robert Downey Jr. first put on the Iron Man armor back in 2008. Now that Earth's Mightiest Heroes are finally going to assemble on the big screen, Isaiah Mustafa, whom you might know as the Old Spice Guy, is looking to bring another famous Avenger to theaters, Luke Cage. Old Spice's suave spokesman has put together a mock teaser trailer featuring himself as Luke Cage and it's pretty cool. Take a look!
One of the most notable highlights of this past weekend's UFC 129 event, was the spectacular knockout kick used by Lyoto Machida which sent MMA legend Randy Couture down to the mat unconscious with a dislodged tooth.
Here is that KO, appropriately set to the soundtrack of the film which made that particular kick famous. No legs were swept, no wax was put on or off, and no one was put in a body bag, but dammit, it was cool!
While there have been other attempts to immortalize the most famous cheat code in gaming history, none have been so effective in conveying the quintessence of what 30 lives adds to the classic experience as this one.

Chris Hardwick, our intrepid Gadget Pr0n correspondent on Attack of the Show, and host of the upcoming series Web Soup, will be cavorting with late night host Jimmy Fallon tonight on The Jimmy Fallon Show. He's going to be talking about the show, which will premiere on June 7th, at 9PM, and which will feature a sort of Talk Soup format for the internet. It's going to be hilarious.
Of course, Chris is a world-famous comedian, as well, so his interview on tonight's Fallon should be pretty funny. You should tune in to NBC at 12:35AM and watch him do his thing. We certainly will. And, don't forget to catch the premiere of Web Soup on June 7th at 9.
