So, I just watched the old film, A Bridge Too Far. It would seem that, after 1977, a secret law was made in Hollywood. The law was this: If you make a large production film or TV series, you must use at least one actor from A Bridge Too Far. Some small names from the cast:
James Caan (has he ever played a nonsmoker? Just wondering. I love him.)
John Ratzenberger (Cliff on Cheers)
And so many faces you recognize and can't quite name. It's kind of fun to see them all so young.
