Courteney Cox in ‘Dancing in the Dark’ by Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen

Long before ‘Friends’ was even a thought, a young fresh-faced model named Courteney Cox shot to fame as the wide-eyed woman pulled up onstage to dance during Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘Dancing in the Dark’ video.

The clip became so iconic that everyone wanted to cast the fledgling actress, but her early choices with the ‘Misfits of Science’ TV series and films like ‘Masters of the Universe’ and ‘Cocoon: The Return’ didn’t exactly pan out. She caught a big break playing Alex’s girlfriend on TV’s ‘Family Ties’ before finally seeing her career take off with ‘Friends,’ a full decade after her ‘Dancing in the Dark’ appearance.

Next Cameo: Rolling With Jolie
