26 Famous Actors You Never Knew Were In These Popular Classics.

#6. Kristen Stewart

Before she was an obsessed teenager in the movie Twilight, Kristen Stewart showed her love for an entirely different kind of man. At just 16 years old, Stewart's character, Tracy, fell for Emile Hirsch's character, Chris McCandless, in the 2007 film, Into the Wild. Before his passing at the end of the movie, Chris and Tracy become close friends as he travels around the country searching for his purpose.

#7. Seth Rogan

Funny man, Seth Rogan, will be immortalized by his hilarious roles in films such as Pineapple Express, Knocked Up, and Neighbors, but Rogan hasn't always been the comedian we know today. In fact, Rogan's debut role was in the dramatic movie, Donnie Darko. Even though Rogan plays a bully in this cult classic, he was able to show his redeeming qualities later in life once he started making people laugh.
