Famous Actors Who Started On Guiding Light

It's not uncommon for actors on a soap opera to go on to bigger and better things.  However, the show Guiding Light, which ran on CBS from 1952 to 2009 (not including 19 years on the radio), has a pretty impressive group of alumni.   Here is a list of some of the actors that got their start on this show:
James Lipton
Christopher Walken
Billy Dee Williams
Cicely Tyson
James Earl Jones
Kevin Bacon
Frances Fisher

If you're a Star Wars devotee, like me, then two names on the list will jump out at you, Billy Dee Williams and James Earl Jones.  James Earl Jones actually replaced Williams after he left the show.
