Ok, I interpreted this differently before (Actress best known for role as 1960s person shown in western). Let's try again...

is Austin Pendleton the point of the Big Bang photo?

I'm still not sure I get this. So... actors who are known for a time period, shot in any other time period? That is, actor whose peak was the '70s shot in the '90s? Or is it more like, actor who is associated with the '70s playing someone from another time period (1940s or something)? Am I being spectacularly thick?

emil.y, Saturday, 22 February 2014 16:48 (five years ago) link

I don't get it either

actors who - together - are generally associated - together - in one period (be it from actually working together during that period or making some period based film or tv show together like nimoy and shatner) photographed together in another period different from the one they are associated with. so 'here's this dude you only know from civil war movies in a late 70s roller disco movie' doesn't count but 'here's this dude and this dudette you only know from civil war movies they made together in a late 70s roller disco movie they made together' does.

basically this is mainly gonna be a compendium of stunt casting.

Mifune seems like he's in his prime

That's Brent Spiner, not Austin Pendleton.

jesus christ that's jesse heiman in the background of that big bang shot isn't it. i mean hardly surprising - OF COURSE he's there - but still.

this probably doesn't quite count, but there's something disorientating to me about the cast of Dad's Army in 70s clothes/glasses

soref, Saturday, 22 February 2014 20:08 (five years ago) link

OK, now that I see the rules I take mine back

In Walked Sho-Bud (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 22 February 2014 20:33 (five years ago) link

Ahhh, thanks balls. I knew I was missing something.

emil.y, Saturday, 22 February 2014 20:34 (five years ago) link

That pic is v disturbing and a candidate for real england maybe?

cardamon, Sunday, 23 February 2014 00:14 (five years ago) link

OK then this would be one, I think...

Considers spamming thread with 70s sitcom casts out of costume, thinks better of it.

another kinda sorta one, Kate O'Mara and Colin Baker in The Brothers and Dr Who

soref, Sunday, 23 February 2014 13:12 (five years ago) link

That's not Kinda, it's Mark of the Rani.

(Niche Doctor Who joke there.)

Ian Glasper's trapped in a scone (aldo), Sunday, 23 February 2014 13:14 (five years ago) link

I keep thinking there must be loads of examples from Dr Who of two actors who later starred in another show together both appearing as part of the guest cast in period/'futuristic' setting, but I can't bring any to mind.

soref, Sunday, 23 February 2014 13:26 (five years ago) link

don't know most of these but love that 70s show one

totally don't get the Kirk & Keeler one

And I know what you're thinking, Hey! I bet there's some photo of Cheech & Chong playing insurance agents on Law & Order right?

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.aoltv.com/media/2008/10/cheech-chong-perform-today-460lvg102808.jpg

I'd say don't even bother looking.

pplains, Sunday, 23 February 2014 17:45 (five years ago) link

did not recognize '70s Show cast at all. Kutcher needs makeup.
