Ty Burrell

Yep, that’s right people. Phil from Modern Family and the dude from those orange juice commercials was in Dawn of the Dead AND the Incredible Hulk. It seems so long ago that Edward Norton had played the hulk before our beloved Mark Ruffalo, but it happened; and Ty Burrell was there as Dr. Samson.

Olivia Munn

Not really surprising, but hard to remember if you weren’t necessarily paying attention in Iron Man 2. Munn had played Chess Roberts, a reporter covering the Stark Expo before everything went to hell and robotic Iron Men tried killing Iron Man and War Machine Iron Patriot.

Jeff Bridges

Before Justin Hammer and the Mandarin there was Obadiah Stane, played by the one and only, bald Kevin Flynn……aka Jeff Bridges. I know 2008 seems like a long time ago, but really it was only 6 years ago that Jeff Bridges became the first villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Josh Dallas

Fandral

I never really realized that Once Upon A Time’s Prince Charming was the guy playing Fandral in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor; and I certainly did not realize that he was replaced by Zachary Levi in the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. I should start paying closer attention before reviewing anymore films…

Liv Tyler

Ty Burrell wasn’t the only one from the Incredible Hulk that people tend to forget was in the movie. Liv Tyler was also in it and she actually had quite a large role, but for some reason people don’t remember her involvement in keeping the big green dude at bay.

    Good list. (It was War Machine at the expo, by the way, not Iron Patriot.)

  • One more thing

    One other for this list: Richard Armitage (Thorin from the Hobbit) was the German assassin that Rogers chases through New York.

      Oh, good one. I didn’t even realize it was him in those scenes.

    • BeyondthePolice

      And another one that I only noticed because I originally saw the movie after seeing season 7 of Doctor Who, but Jenna-Louise Coleman, who currently plays Clara Oswald, the Doctor’s companion, on Doctor Who, had a small role as one of the two men’s dates at the technology expo in The First Avenger.

    I wish Terrence Howard wasn’t let go. For one I hate recasts and for two I think the roles suits him way better than frail-looking Don Cheadle. Don’s an excellent actor but that role really isn’t for him.

    • The Walking Cuban

      I hate recasts but I can’t change em and honestly Cheadle may be thinner but he’s not scrawny. He’s got that athletically thin look, like some military guys, they run so much that they don’t add muscle, but they do have muscle. Thing is, either way, the suit hides the man. Part 2, he stuck out big time, being a recast, but by part 3 he nailed the bromance the way Howard did except without, you know, sounding like a Memphis pimp. “A mayn, is like a DOG” “Gimme the suit, Rhodie, you’re drunk”

      • wat

        Haha I didn’t like him in IM3 either.

        • The Walking Cuban

          Haha bou2 watch Cap 2 PAYCE

          • wat

            Ughhhh I need to see itttttt

  • Thunderchild

    Liv, Tommy Lee Jones, and The Dude were important supporting actors. Really not fair to say people can easily forget them.

  • Josiah Silas Michael

    If you forgot about Iron Man, you’re not paying attention.

  • Antonio F.

    I don’t know who Olivia Munn or that blonde chick are, but how could Tommy Lee Jones’s role or Terrence Howard’s possibly be forgotten?

  • ToolThatFabricatesArticles

    You are officially a retard if you think people “forgot” about the roles played by Tommy Lee Jones, Terence Howard, Liv Tyler, and Jeff Bridges. These were all integral characters to the Marvel Universe. Why not describe this article as it was meant to be? “A cheap excuse to get hits by mentioning Marvel”. Learn 2 Journalism you idiot.
