Before They Were Stars (3-for-1 Special): Zach Braff, Craig Ferguson & Gwyneth Paltrow in a Failed CBS Pilot

It’s common for celebrities to have “Before They Were Stars” clips feasted upon them when they appear on talk shows, but this is a rare case where both the guest AND the host are featured in the clip. Last week, Zach Braff appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig brought up the fact that the two of them acted together in a TV pilot for a failed 1989 CBS series called High. This was Zach’s first major acting gig and he was only 14 at the time. I have no idea what this show was about (or if it had anything at all to do with drugs), but the scene they show features a very cheap plug for a new cutting-edge gadget called a Game Boy. They pull out a cast picture, where you’ll see another recognizable face who also had their first acting gig on this show: 17-year old Gwyneth Paltrow!
