Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Quien Es Esta Nina Edition?


Long before it was a thing, Otter Disaster and I used to play a wide-ranging and never-ending game that we called “Hey, It’s That Guy!”  (Somebody else later made a website about it, but we were TOTALLY firsties.)  Not so long ago, I was utterly startled to find a young Scarlett Johansson as the daughter in ‘Eight-Legged Freaks,’ but the REAL shocks came when I accidentally viewed a late night episode of ‘Californication.’  In addition to Agent Mulder in the lead role, I found myself shocked to recognize a few of his conquests from their other roles as well:  Chandler’s ex Janice from ‘Friends,’ Diane from ‘Loveline,’ and most shockingly, Gracie, the youngest daughter from ‘The Nanny.’  Sure, everyone grows up, and preteen actresses will eventually grow up into full-grown women, but the moment where my brain finally kicked into gear was something of a full-frontal revelation (and, no, that is not merely a clever metaphor.)

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) knows the face, but completely blanked on the name, asking: What’s the most surprising (you should excuse the expression). “actor reveal” you’ve ever encountered?
