Have you ever watched something and thought to yourself, “OMG! This guy/girl looks sooo familiar. I’m sure I’ve seen him/her somewhere else.” I can assure you, this happens to me constantly, and when it does, I automatically log on to IMDb to check the films and shows of the aforementioned star. Recently, we’ve had some “aha!” moments about some actors and where we’ve seen them before.

Gabriel Mann used to play the clueless boyfriend of Josie in the movie Josie and the Pussycats, but now he plays the conniving Nolan Ross in Revenge.

Garrett Reynolds (played by Yani Gellman) of Pretty Little Liars used to hang out with Lizzie McGuire (in the movie version, that is!). Side note: I just love his hair and outfit. So retro. Haha!

Another Pretty Little Liars cast member is making the rounds by appearing on all our fave shows. Torrey Devitto (Paul Wesley’s wife!) was once a crazy nanny on One Tree Hill, then she changed gears as a slightly psychotic older sister to Spencer. Now that she’s hanging out in Mystic Falls, I pray she’ll continue playing a trustworthy doctor/good girlfriend to Alaric (freaky side begone!).

And lastly, my most shocking realization of all was seeing Esther from the movie Orphan running around the arena and offing people in the recent Hunger Games. Isabelle Fuhrman still had that creepy vibe to her despite the fact that she was playing a totally different character. Then again, I think freaking out people is what she does best (haha!).

Do you have any surprising celebrity revelations of your own that you’d like to share? Sound off below!
