Hey, here’s Bryan Cranston and some other people on The X-Files

Did you know that actors who are well known for one thing have also been in other things? And that in some of those things, they didn’t even get top billing, even though we all know that they would go on to do other things where they would? It’s like acting is something people work at for many years before finally getting their big break! 

Clearly the Hollywood dream machine failed these actors, because they had to settle for bit parts on The X-Files before landing the roles that would make them famous. BuzzFeed Pop has rounded them all up in one slickly produced video, so that we may take a moment to contemplate the fleeting nature of fame, and indeed of all human existence. (Although none of these people have any real cause to complain, because they got to witness the simmering sexual tension between David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in real life.)
