10 Movie Stars and Their Early Roles


Courteney Cox in Masters of the Universe (1987)

Life was pretty sweet while playing Monica in NBC's megahit sitcom, Friends, but in 1987 Courteney Cox was running for her life from characters named Gildor and Karg. Cox had done a Bruce Springsteen video and television work before this He-Man movie, and she completed other film projects in 1987, but this role made her a favorite among the sci-fi set and possibly foretold her future work in kitschy movies such as the 1996 thriller Scream.
