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.
