    Mine are:

    Hugh Jackman – X-Men: First Class

    Once Wolverine Origins rolled around, I was pretty much sick of seeing the character getting all the spotlight. I was glad to hear that First Class would be focusing on other superheros in the Marvel universe; it was a breathe of fresh air. In saying all that, I actually thought the Wolverine cameo in First Class was hilarious, while showing a side of the character we barely got to see throughout the X-Men films.

    Robert Patrick – Waynes World

    The T-1000 is a relentless, killing machine from Terminator 2: Judgement Day, that pulls over Wayne Campbell during a scene in Wayne’s World. The fact that the T-1000 is such a sinister character, it makes the scene highly hysterical. As a kid in the 90′s, I never saw a cross-over like that. I remember re-winding that scene back, replaying it over and over.

    Bruce Campbell – Darkman

    One of the last scenes in Darkman, involves Peyton Westlake(Liam Neelson), deciding his future. He makes it clear to his love interest that he is a monster and needs to leave. To hide from his loved one, he dawns a new face…the face of Bruce Campbell! Look at that face. Look at the tense, dramatic stare of Mr Campbell as the film wraps. Pure movie magic!

    Samual L. Jackson – Iron Man

    Iron Man was the first to start the countdown to The Avengers. This begins with the post-credits scene featuring Samual L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who wants to discuss the ”Avengers Initiative” with Tony Stark. Seeing these two Mavel characters interact was a fanboys wet dream. After the film, a lot of questions were brought up as geeks across the web discussed what we were in for next.

    Stan Lee – Mallrats

    What would a movie that is influence by comic book culture be without Stan Lee? During a scene in Mallrats, Stan Lee makes a cameo by giving love advice to Brodie(Jason Lee). Stan is charming and brilliant, while Brodie just wants to ask about superheros and their sexual organs. At the end we find out that Stan Lee was paid off to say those things to Brodie.

    Cate Blanchett – Hott Fuzz


    This is a cameo I didn’t know about until recently, but how could you notice that the person behind that mask and goggles was Cate Blanchett? The fact that such a huge star is put in an unrecognizable role makes this cameo freaking genius. I’m curious to know how many people out there knew it was her first time around.


    Johnny Depp – 21 Jump Street

    Speaking of unrecognizable roles, Johnny Depp’s cameo in 21 Jump Street was fantastic. Depp is covered in make-up, prosthetics and a wig during a few scenes, but it’s not until the end that we see Depp without the extreme make-over. The best part of this cameo is, it ties the movie and the TV show together.

    John Landis – An American Werewolf in London



    Director John Landis makes a quick cameo in his own film, An American Werewolf in London, when a car hits him, sending him crashing through a window. I like seeing a director making cameos in their own movies, especially when it’s a fun or quirky.



    Drew Barrymore – Scream


    How do you grab an audiences attention? You cast a big named star and have them killed off in the first scene. This is exactly what happens in Scream, when Drew Barrymore is killed off during the opening sequence. No one expected it and it instantly draws you in because you know, no character is off limits.


    Bill Murray – Zombieland

    When the characters in Zombieland break into Bill Murray’s mansion, the movie takes on a whole different life. You don’t feel like your watching a zombie flick, but a SNL skit of sorts. While the direction changes, it works in an odd way. We see Murray re-enacting Ghostbusters, smoking weed and dressing up as a zombie to scare Columbus, which results in Bill’s death.

    -Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross. A tremendous few minutes.
    -Christopher Walken in Pulp Fiction. Iconic.
    -Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper in True Romance. Wonderfully acted.
    -Gary Oldman in True Romance. Gary Oldman as a rastafarian drug dealer is too weird not to love.
    -Marshall McCluhan in Annie Hall. Extremely clever and funny.
    -Howard Cosell in Bananas. Another great Woody Allen moment.
    -Luke Wilson in 3:10 To Yuma. It's always a great surprise when [blackout]a famous person shows up for a couple minutes and then dies.[/blackout]
    -Tobey Maguire and Jon Voigt in Tropic Thunder. Both parts were hilarious.
    -Peter Jackson in Hot Fuzz. He really did look like someone who'd stab a cop.

    The one that immediately came to mind was Johnny Depp. Truly shows how awesome of an actor he is as well. His character is in the beginning and in the end! I thought he was just in the end till watching it over again. First tv adaptation with a kick ass legit passing of the torch cameo.

    I actually got a pretty big kick out of seeing Emily Blunt (almost) reprise her role in the Devil wears Prada in the latest muppets movie. That was a good cameo.

    Stan Lee's cameo in the Amazing Spider-Man was my absolute favorite. Man, just love that scene.

    Many good ones, but Bill Murray in Zombieland is the single most joy inducing cameo ever. I had the pleasure of seeing that movie at its premiere so I had no idea it was coming. It was completely out of the blue. It was so funny, so unexpected, and the crowd ate it up so completely, that I got a little misty eyed. Just pure happiness.

    My favorites from the ones that have already been mentioned:

    Johnny Depp in 21 Jump Street
    I was waiting for it throughout the movie, but I was still surprised when it came, both by the timing and that it was what it was. And it was a really funny scene, with Depp clearly having a lot of fun.

    Robert Patrick in Wayne's World
    "Have you seen this boy?"

    Hugh Jackman in X-Men: First Class
    I assumed there would be one, because apparently Jackman has to be in every X-Men movie during his lifetime, but I was worried about how they'd fit one in without breaking continuity, considering Wolvie's not supposed to meet Xavier or Magneto or know what an X-Man is until Singer's first movie. They pulled it off very nicely, though, and delivered the funniest moment in the movie.

    Samuel L. Jackson in Iron Man
    I may have heard about the possibility of this one before seeing the movie, I don't remember, but I don't think I really expected it, and it was a thrill, not just the moment itself, but the realization of what Marvel was building toward.

    Stan Lee in most of the Marvel movies


    And some more of my favorites:

    Christopher Walken in Pulp Fiction

    Alice Cooper in Wayne's World

    Charlton Heston in Wayne's World 2

    Luke Wilson, Tim Robbins, and Ben Stiller in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

    Gene Hackman in Young Frankenstein

    Ethel Merman in Airplane!

    Bruce Campbell in Raimi’s Spider-Man movies

    Dylan Baker is hilarious in his bit part in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.

    Bruce Campbell in Spider-Man 2

    Stan Lee in The Amazing Spider-Man. His best cameo ever.

    Hugh Jackman in X-Men: First Class.

    Anthony Hopkins in Mission: Impossible II. "Well this isn't Mission Difficult, it's Mission Impossible. Mission Difficult should be a walk in the park". Best line in the movie.

    Cillian Murphy in The Dark Knight Rises. "Death....by exile!" "Sold! To the man in the cold sweat!"

    Rutger Hauer and Powers Boothe in Sin City

    Michael Caine in Inception

    Sean Connery in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

    Charlie Sheen's cameo in Loaded Weapon 1 was the funniest scene in the movie.

    Kevin Bacon's taxi race with Steve Martin in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
