Everyone has those moments when they're watching an old TV show or movie where they go - Hey I know that actor! Want to know why you didn't recognize them before? They weren't actually known at the time! Now that you know pretty much every actor in the world, check out these 5 actors I bet you didn't realize were in these films/shows!

1. Charles Michael Davis - That's So Raven

Everyone loved That's So Raven. It was one of the funniest Disney shows back in the day; however I bet you guys didn't know a sexy vampire walked the halls of Bayside High School. What vampire you ask? It was the one and only Marcel from Originals! Yup! That smoking hot vampire was once a nerdy High School boy, just wanting to dance with Raven.

2. Miley Cyrus - Highschool Musical 2

We all know the foam-finger humping, almost-completely naked, curse word slinging Miley, but did you guys notice her in High School Musical 2? I kind of guessed you didn't. She wasn't a main cast member - heck she wasn't even part of the cast - she was an extra! Now if pull out your old HS2 DVD and skip all the way to the ending song, to the left side of the pool, way in the back you'll see Smiley Miley being cute, cuddly and not so inappropriate like she is now.

3. Kyle Gallner - Wet Hot American Summer

Most people know Kyle from such films as American Sniper, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Haunting In Connecticut. Thirteen years ago, way before he even did those films, we got to see little Kyle in a small but, oh-so-cute role as Bobby's buddy in Wet Hot American Summer. Wasn't he just a cutie pie? The answer is yes!

4. Seth Rogen - Donnie Darko

Seth is our giant, funny, teddy bear. But before he was Teddy, he was annoying the crap out of Jake Gyllenhaal in the film Donnie Darko. His role is much bigger than the previous actors I've listed but I seriously didn't notice him when I first watched the film! Watching it now I'm like - Hey! it's the Green Hornet!

5. Dominic Monaghan - Hetty Wainthropp Investigates

Wondering around in this wonderful little British program called Hetty Wainthropp Investigates is the Dominic Monaghan. He has a pretty steady role and the show as a whole is a fun watch. So if you don't mind tuning into one of the British TV channels your local cable company has given you, I'm pretty sure you can catch some re-runs!

6. Megan Fox - Bad Boys II

Nowadays, Megan Fox is every teenage boys' dream for her oh-so-sexy role as Mikaela Banes in the Transformers movies. But before that, she was just a pretty girl in a club in Bad Boys II- well, she's always going to be the pretty girl anywhere, she's Megan Fox! Now go rent the film and look closely at the club scene - I'm sure you'll spot her, with no problems!
