Ilia Volok on "Burn Notice" (2007)

Ilia Volok (Master Org/Viktor Adler, Wild Force) guest starred on USA Network's freshman drama "Burn Notice." As the first screencap will tell you, Volok played the role of Jan Haseck, a Czech assassin who comes looking for the series' main character, Michael Westen (played by Jeffrey Donovan). Volok appears in several scenes of the episode as his character follows, watches, stalks and shoots at Westen throughout the episode. While it's not shown on-screen, it is revealed at the end of the episode that Volok's character was found dead in his jail cell.

"Burn Notice" currently airs on USA Network

Cerina Vincent in "Murder-Set-Pieces" (2004)

Being a B-movie scream queen has its perks. If you're Cerina Vincent (Maya, Lost Galaxy), you can make an appearance in one scene of a gore-fest and still be credited as one of the film's main stars. That's exactly the case with "Murder-Set-Pieces," an extremely disturbing horror film centered around a deranged photographer who kills and mutilates his female subjects. Vincent is credited as "Beautiful Girl" and appears in the film's final scene opposite the killer. Despite her virtual cameo, she's credited third amongst the film's cast.

"Murder-Set-Pieces" is available on DVD

While he was an active Power Ranger, Selwyn Ward (T.J., Turbo-Space) appeared as an extra in the film "American History X."

Ward appears as a high school student who exits the school's restroom just as Furlong's character enters. The scene is the film's pivotal climax. Ward was uncredited, given that his character did not speak in the movie.
