Sandra McCoy (Kendall, Wild Force) appeared briefly on the hit comedy series "Two and a Half Men" at the start of the sitcom's fourth season. McCoy appears as Tina, a love interest of Charlie Sheen in the premiere episode "Working for Caligula." After ending his romance in the Season 3 finale and watching his brother get married instead, Charlie starts the new season all alone in his house which leads to a major party. His brother Alan arrives to find Charlie in bed with Tina...and two other women. The fun comes to a halt when Alan reveals his new wife dumped him, taking his money as well. Charlie reluctantly takes Alan and his son back in. Sandra McCoy has a few lines as Charlie introduces her to his brother in the scene. Cerina Vincent was previously posted for appearing on "Two and a Half Men." Interestingly enough, Vincent was also a love interest for series star Charlie Sheen.

Ron Roggé in "Obsessed" (2009)

Ron Roggé (Captain Mitchell, Lightspeed) made a brief appearance in the recent big screen hit "Obsessed." Roggé appears in only one scene, playing Roger, an employee who works with lead characters Derek Charles (played by Idris Elba) and Lisa Sheridan (played by Ali Larter). When Lisa sets out to get her hands on Derek, she pulls him into the men's room during the company Christmas Party, determined to get his attention. While Derek resists her advances in a bathroom stall, a drunken Roger enters and while he has no real lines besides laughter, his behavior hints that he thinks something romantic is happening in the stall which he can't see. Most of his appearance on-screen is from the viewpoint of the characters in the stall. Although Roggé appears in only one scene, his character is referenced again later as having caused an entertaining accident at the party after Derek's departure. The film also stars Beyoncé Knowles. Roggé's Lightspeed Rescue co-star Keith Robinson also appeared in films with Idris Elba ("This Christmas") and Beyoncé ("Dreamgirls").

"Obsessed" is available on DVD
