I know about Johnny Depp and Kevin Bacon, but what about some in the 90s or later?

    21) Harrison Ford in "The Possessed" (1977) ~ This failed TV pilot aired the same year that "Star Wars" was released, actually only a few weeks prior to when he would achieve stardom! Of course, he had rough times with roles until 1980, '81 and '82, when he starred in "The Empire Strikes Back", "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Blade Runner", respectively.

    22) Kirsten Dunst in "Interview with the Vampire" (1994)
