I was watching Bonnie and Clyde last night (I'm going through this gangster phase right now) and noticed a strange thing - Willy Wonka, sitting there in the backseat as a hostage in the gangsters' car. Turns out the 1967 movie was Gene Wilder's feature film debut. Not bad for a first movie, huh? Every actor has to start somewhere, of course, and some start a little higher than others. We've done quizzes on the embarrassing beginnings of thespians before; it seems only fair to talk about the pretty good beginnings as well.
4. Cuba Gooding, Jr., can claim a small role as a barber shop customer in Coming to America as his movie debut.
5. Anjelica Huston has got to have one of the smallest film debuts ever - she provided Agent Mimi's hands in the first Casino Royale.
6. Geena Davis played April Page in Tootsie in 1982, her first time on the big screen.
10. Kevin Bacon had a brief role in the classic frat movie Animal House as rival pledge Chip.
