Laurence Fishburne in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warrior

Before he becoming an Oscar nominee and, as Morpheus in The Matrix, a cult icon, a young Fishburne had a small but meaningful part in the third installment of the Freddy Krueger franchise. He played an orderly at a psychiatric hospital who takes an interest in his patients, including Krueger's would-be victim played by Patricia Arquette.
