This Is Us: All the Times Guest Stars Made Us Nostalgic for 1980s/'90s TV

Forget MeTV: If you want a blast from TV’s past, all you have to do is tune into This Is Us on the regular.

» Top New Releases in Books

NBC’s heartwarming family drama excels at casting actors from some of the most beloved television shows and movies of the 1980s and ’90s — often without any sort of prior announcement — meaning each new hour brings the possibility of being surprised by a Married… With Children actress as Kevin’s Hollywood agent or a Different World alum living in William’s old building. Rebecca’s own mother made a Big splash when she first appeared in a Season 1 flashback, and a 21 Jump Street grad interacting with Jack in Vietnam. Stars of the Reagan and Bush eras: They’re everywhere!

We’ve been so delighted by the familiar faces that have popped up over the past three seasons, we’ve gathered our nostalgia-inducing favorites here. Our list features a bunch of people who’ve popped up in Pearson-land, as well as the TV series and/or films that made them famous. (Please note: This is not an inclusive list of all This Is Us guest appearances, so please don’t fill the comments telling us that we missed Jimmi Simpson’s excellent turn as a spiraling suit or Ron Howard’s cameos as Kevin’s benevolent director.)
