Chris Violette on "Queer as Folk" (2004)

The year before he suited up as Blue Ranger, Chris Violette (Sky, SPD) had a small role on the gay-themed cable drama "Queer as Folk." Violette was credited as "Gym Bunny" and appeared in only one scene of the sixth episode of the show's fourth season. His character flirts with series regular Randy Harrison and gets drawn into a competition between two of the show's lead characters, Justin (Harrison) and Brian. This was a minor role and Violette had no real lines during his scene.

Season 4 of "Queer as Folk" is available on DVD

Erin Cahill on "On the Lot" - 3 (2007)

Erin Cahill (Jen, Time Force) continued to appear in the FOX reality series "On the Lot," which showcases a group of young directors competing for a contract at the Steven Spielberg studio, Dreamworks. In Episode 10 of the series, she appeared in contestant Will Bigham's short film "Spaghetti," an homage to "spaghetti westerns." Unlike her previous appearances, Cahill's role in the short film was not very big, as she was only a supporting player to the short film's two male leads.

Cerina Vincent in "Conversations with Other Women" (2005)

Presented in split-screen, "Conversations with Other Women" tells the story of two wedding guests whose flirtation reveals their previous past together and the connection they still share many years after their failed marriage. Cerina Vincent (Maya, Lost Galaxy) appears in the film playing the role of Sarah, the current girlfriend of the male lead (played by Aaron Eckhart). Given the style of the film and focus on the two main characters, Vincent appears in only a handful of scenes. She is also never heard speaking.
