50 memorable movie cameos

Stacker Logo By Rachel Cavanaugh of Stacker | Slide 1 of 51: There’s almost nothing better than your favorite celebrity suddenly popping up during a great movie, appearing for just a few minutes—or even a few seconds—to offer viewers a tease of their talent. In fact, cameos can sometimes be more memorable than full-length roles.

The circumstances leading up to these bit parts always differ. A cameo can be the result of a friendship between the actor and director that leads to a spontaneous, last-minute addition to the film. Other times, it’s a long-envisioned moment that the producers had to move mountains to make happen.

Sometimes celebrities play themselves, poking fun at their stereotypical characteristics or making a joke about a recent item of gossip. Other times, they’re in the background or performing split-second walk-ons that you’d miss if you blinked.

Stacker put together a list of the 50 best movie cameos of all-time, pulling movies across several countries and decades. Read on to see some of the funniest, most iconic moments in film history.
