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

As part of my grieving process over the death of Paul Walker 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?

    Huh.. Do any of the lurking down-voters care to explain their reasoning? Commented Dec 13, 2013 at 16:16

There are 17 people (at least) who worked on both projects. About half are crew and one is stuntwork (which is kind of both).


  • Mark Blucas
  • Danny Strong (actor on Buffy, cameo & crew on Pleasantville)
  • Jason Behr
  • Nancy Lenehan
  • Denise Dowse
  • Andrea Baker
  • Paul Morgan Stetler
  • J. Patrick Lawlor
  • Joseph Benjamin Stewart


  • Jacob Chambers (stunts)
  • Randy Eriksen
  • Tim Speed
  • Kenneth Hunter
  • Jeff Orsa
  • Elizabeth Rabe
  • Chadwick Cohn
  • Kenneth Estes

    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. Commented Dec 13, 2013 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.
