Who are the actors common to both Pleasantville and Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

As part of my grieving process over the death of Paul Walker1 who was in the Fast & the Furious franchise, I was researching his life. It surprised me that he was also in Pleasantville since it is one of my favorite movies and I had not connected the actor to both films (and would never have recognized him in a million years).

This got me to thinking about the actors I had noticed as common between BtVS (another of my favorite shows) and Pleasantville, since I had already spotted 3 of them.

Are there any I missed?

  1. Conclusion: He was a really nice guy and is a loss to the world. My heart goes out to his loved ones, as well as the many people he might have helped through his (considerable) generosity.

Huh.. Do any of the lurking down-voters care to explain their reasoning? – Andrew Thompson Dec 13 '13 at 16:16
I don't understand the downvote or the vote to close the question, either. I answered it in less than 20 minutes. It's not like it was opinion-based or had no answer. Probably just someone who didn't like Paul. – Meat Trademark Dec 16 '13 at 9:44

Most Popular People Credited in "Pleasantville (1998)" And Credited in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997 TV Series)" There are 13 more names (in addition to the three you spotted) in common. A handful are crew and one is just stuntwork, but I hope this helps.

That was a better answer than I was expecting! Thank you so much.. Now I'm compelled to go through the list and identify where each actor fits in the relevant show. – Andrew Thompson Dec 13 '13 at 7:01
This answer would be even better with a summary of the link content, e.g. a short list of the people and what their job was. – atticae May 16 '14 at 16:03

There are currently 8 actors in Pleasantville. Look at this link for the others you missed.

Wow! There was some really clever 'actor spotting', with clear identification, in that one. Thanks. :) – Andrew Thompson Mar 13 '14 at 4:41
I have the accepted answer, but I gotta give you a +1 for having the pics. Nice work. – Meat Trademark Mar 14 '14 at 21:16
