Before They Were Stars: James Woods on “Welcome Back, Kotter”

Welcome Back, Kotter is remembered as the TV show that helped jumpstart John Travolta’s career, so it’s neat to see him crossing paths with another future star in the very first episode. On the series premiere of the show, the Sweathogs wind up going head-to-head with the school’s debate team, who just happen to be lead by a young James Woods! You can first spot Woods at the 3:34 mark of this clip and it’s hilarious seeing him as an ultra-snobby intellectual.
