#1 Rick Moranis as Wayne Szalinski
The beloved comedy actor of the '80s and '90s took a break from acting in 1997 to focus on raising his children. "I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn't miss it." Moranis, however, claims he's NOT retired. "As soon as [a role] comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it."

#4 Kristine Sutherland as Mae Thompson
Kristine Sutherland is best known for her iconic role as Joyce Summers, Buffy's mom, on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. In an AMA on the Buffy The Vampire Slayer subreddit, she was asked what sort of special effects were used to make the kids look small in HISTK, to which she responded, "There were several sound stages in Mexico that they used to build the sets. They were at the right scale to make the kids look small. I only saw a couple of them as they were being built while we were filming the normal size part of the script first. The sets were amazing! Imagine a blade of grass that TOWERS over your head."
