Jessica Rey on "Las Vegas" (2004)

Jessica Rey (Alyssa, Wild Force) played a small role on the hit NBC series "Las Vegas" towards the end of its very first season. In the episode titled "The Big Bang," she plays a casino employee named Kelli. She interacts with series regular Nikki Cox, who invites her and the other employees to attend a members-only concert at the casino, in an effort to allow them the privileges she was denied when she was in Kelli's position. Rey has several lines in her first scene and appears again at the end of the episode attending the Everlast concert.

Season 1 of "Las Vegas" is available on DVD

Jason David Frank in "Junior Defenders" (1997)

As his first tenure as a Power Ranger was winding down in 1997, Jason David Frank (Tommy, MMPR-Turbo, Dino Thunder) donned a different set of tights in the indie flick "Junior Defenders." Originally titled "Groupies," the film tells the story of a man who kidnaps the four stars of his favorite childhood television show (Junior Defenders) and takes them to Hollywood, forcing them to shoot a new episode of the series, after the show was cancelled on a cliffhanger fifteen years before. Frank appears in the last half hour of the film. His character, ironically also named Tommy, is the last member of the Junior Defenders cast to be abducted. The film was released for the first time on DVD in 2007, ten years after it was produced.
