Last year, Bored Panda wrote about famous people who made it only after they hit 30. Naturally, we're not used to seeing these people when they were young adults, but it only makes us even more curious, because, well, haven't you ever wondered what Morgan Freeman looked like in his twenties? Because we sure did. Therefore, Bored Panda has made you a short list of people that we haven't seen as young adults and teenagers before. So scroll down below to vote for the ones that you like and that surprised you the most!

The first time I had ever seen Colin Firth was when he was in 1984's "Another Country". It also featured Rupert Everett and Cary Elwes. We were all young and pretty back then, weren't we?

Stephen King didn't want Nicholson in The Shining, and to this day hates the movie. Jack had just won raves in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, where he played a mental patient. King did not want people thinking the father was already insane (the hotel is what pushes the father into insanity, and it's a huge arc in the book), because of his role in Cuckoo.

Jack had at least two appearances on The Andy Griffith Show when he was young. One is where Opie and his pal find a baby that'd been abandoned, and keep it until Jack's character and his wife show up to claim it. Can't remember how they glossed over the fact that the child had been abandoned, but it must have involved some real fast talkin'. Then there was the episode I call 11 angry men and one calm lady. Aunt Bea was on jury duty, and proceeded to hold up a quick guilty verdict by refusing to believe that Jack's character could have looted the local Dept. Store, probably Weavers. Aunt Bea said jack was too good looking to be a robber. In the meantime, the real criminal decided to stick around long enough to get caught himself, while he ranted and raved that Aunt Bea was standing in the way of justice. Of course, Aunt Bea was right. Andy got him to admit a lighter dropped when the store was looted was his. Oh, and rumors that Jack those parts thru Aunt Bea's casting couch have never been confirmed.
