As the title says, which films have instances where there was a minor appearance/cameo by someone who isn't really considered an actor, and which you genuinely enjoyed.

One of my picks, despite (or maybe because of) how absurd the role was, was Elton John, in the 2nd Kingsman film. I found myself at least smiling through most of the scenes that featured him.

Note: The person can either make an appearance as their real, celebrity selves, or they can be playing an actual character. Both are valid.

Kristen Stewart in Twilight.

I kid, I kid.

I always enjoy Stan Lee's cameos.

Considering Stan Lee isnt an actor...it should count

And you have to admire his commitment as well. It'd be great if the fan theory (that it's the same being in all the instances) ended up being fully confirmed (Feige has just teased the idea in an interview before). Because then he would have RDJ, Jackman, and the like, beaten by a country mile.

And that article doesn't include his latest cameo, on an episode of The Runaways.

Is that the one about him being one of those Watchers?

thought they dodge that one when we seen him talking to a bunch of them in Gotg vol 2.

TheVaultDweller
Well, not necessarily a Watcher, but could be something. This is what Feige teased:



And given the whole Fox deal (considering his cameos aren't limited to the MCU), they have even more freedom to turn this into something genuine if they ever actually wanted to. Not that they necessarily ever will, obviously.

Sooo many great cameos. Fun thread idea! thumb up

Mike Tyson in THE HANGOVER movies:
"I'm Mike Tyson, i've seen everything."

Billy Idol in THE WEDDING SINGER:
"Get out of my way, Billy Idol!"

Chuck Norris in DODGEBALL:
"Thank YOU, Chuck Norris."

Billy Zane in ZOOLANDER:
"Its a walk off!"

Kareem Abdul Jabbar in AIRPLANE:
"Listen kid! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night! Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes!"

Yes. I mean, It isnt a marvel movie until Stann Lee appears.

Not a Watcher.

I think Stann Lee would do perfect as TOAA.

Considering that he is one of the founding fathers of Marvel....TOAA would suit him well dont you think?

^^^i can see that.

If we're including TV (king of Jordan was in ST:TNG), then First Lady Michell Obama was on eps of iCarly and Jessie, as she shows no favoritism between Teen Nick and the House of Mouse.

Yeah, and from that (and tying in, theme-wise, with the writer mentioned earlier), Stephen King made a cameo on an episode of Sons of Anarchy, as a "cleaner" (as in corpse clean-up guy).

I can't believe I forgot about this one:

mE2HoZGSixs

riv6672
^^^apparently he loved the first one, asked to go a cameo if there was ever a sequel!

He was a white guy locked up in a psych ward fir thinking he was Michael Jackson on the Simpsons back in '91.

Musically, he sang back up on the Rockwell song 'Somebody's Watching Me' as a favor to his brother Jermaine, who was married to the singer's sister.

Ha... I love that show. Captain Holt is the best though IMO.
