Watch seminal (or not) scenes from famous people's first-ever film appearances

Film stars: They were once just like us (only on camera and probably not at all like us)! Every Leonardo DiCaprio and shell of a man that once was Mel Gibson had that first role in a film—a moment that launched a career that spanned decades, sometimes millenia. Yesterday, Flavorwire produced an encore to its "And Introducing…" video from earlier this month, showing off the fleeting moments of today's big film stars' early work. And it's pretty enlightening. For example: I had no idea Edward Norton started with Primal Fear, which is a pretty badass movie. Also it seems Alison Brie started her film career in 2007—CRAZY, RIGHT?!
