Best Movie Cameo?

Asked by trudacia (2513points) June 26th, 2008 from iPhone

I’m watching Neil Patrick Harris on Superpassword and I’m remembering how great he was in Harold and Kumar!

What are your favorite movie cameos?

Also have to mention Matt Damon in Eurotrip!

Christopher Walkin in anything. The general reaction from people is usually along the lines of “Oh shit its Christopher Walkin, sweet!”

I remember watching for Hitchcock! It was half the fun.

@uberbatman, Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper in True Romance. It was such a controversial scene but they both nailed it. Awesome scene, awesome actors.

Randy's avatar

I agree with uber. Walken is a
huge ass kicker! He’s a fav of mine.

every cameo in dogma [my favorite movie]

I like seeing Stan Lee in the Marvel movies too. Or the cameos from people who played the super hero back in the day.

Back to walken, i think his best little cameo was hands down Pulp Fiction. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass for two years

The Three Stooges in It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Very poignant. Seeing Joe made me miss Curly all the more.

It’s not a movie, but my favorite cameos (and spot the famous people in cameos) recently came from this Jimmy Kimmel oeuvre. Warning! It contains graphic language.

George Harrison in Monty Python’s Life of Brian. If you blink you’ll miss him. He actually waves to the camera.

George Carlin in Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob.

I love the fact that Father George Carlin blessed his golf club.

My first boss, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who was the technical adviser for “Close Encounters” had a bit part. He was neither awesome nor kick-ass – just a bearded astronomer.

Alec Baldwin in Glengary Glen Ross

Ned Beatty in “Network.” And to think it was 1976. Watched it again a minute ago on YouTube and sounds like it could be happening today. “You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and you will atone.”

@syz ive always loved this video lol. That man can dance. He can also cook.

@trudacia and Astrochuck Samuel L Jackson is another one like Christopher Walken who just seems to pop up everywhere, hes pretty awesome, but no one is as cool as Walken.

Will Ferrell in Wedding Crashers

trudacia's avatar

@uberbatman, speaking of Stan Lee, didn’t he do a cameo in Mallrats too?

El_Cadejo's avatar

@trudacia Yup

Edit: Heres some more of his cameos

Bill Murray at the beginning of The Darjeeling Limited… Wes Andersen tricks the audience into thinking we’re in for another Bill flick, but at the last minute he misses the train and the movie goes on without him. Awesome.

Quentin Tarantino in Pulp Fiction

AstroChuck's avatar

Matbe it’s just me but I hate when Quentin Tarantino makes appearances in his films. He makes such good movies and then goes and nearly spoils it all by popping up in some scene.

Bri_L's avatar

Jimmy duranty in It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad Worl. I don’t want to spoil his part for anyone

AstroChuck's avatar

And he “literally” kicked the bucket. Funny stuff. Now, off to find the Big W.

Bri_L's avatar

Well, there you go! A classic!

DragonFace's avatar

Jackie Chan in either Ong Bak or The Protector cant remember which one he was in but i think the Protector
