Who is in Band of Brothers?

Who isn’t in Band of Brothers? I must have seen this show five or more times from start to finish, watching different shows in between. Each time I revisit Band of Brothers I have another ‘hey, that’s that guy from that show’ moment.

The star of the epic is Damian Lewis, playing Dick Winters. Throughout there are appearances from Andrew Scott, Jimmy Kimmel and Colin Hanks among others.
