Before They Were Famous in the Nineties (and now), in the Eighties They Were..., Actors First Names Beginning with E

This is a list of actors from the little and big screen, and the small roles they had before their big break. I'm not looking for what a particular actor did outside of acting, I'm looking more for bit roles and TV commercials. I think you could just write down waiter for almost any actor if you really wanted to if that were the case.
