10+ Celebrity Cameos In Famous Movies Fans Almost Missed

While the late Stan Lee was the master of cameos, he's not the only celeb to pull them off successfully.

Plenty of celebs have made brief cameos, whether as themselves or actual characters. But some of these moments were so brief, you might have blinked and missed it.

If so, here's a refresher with these 10+ celebrity cameos in famous movies that fans almost missed.

Daniel Craig in *Star Wars: The Force Awakens*

Star Wars meets James Bond!

Since both movies were filmed at the same studio, it made it easy for Craig to play a Stormtrooper who guarded Rey. But since Stormtroopers wear helmets, this wasn't easily discovered.

Carrie Fisher in *Hook*

Fisher had a lot more to her resume than just acting. She was also a writer and script doctor who worked on movies such as Hook.

Due to this work, she appeared alongside George Lucas in the intro of the film as a couple who are lifted in the sky by Tinkerbell.

Dan Aykroyd in *Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom*

Since the Canadian comedian was a pal of director Steven Spielberg, he played one of the cargo plane escorts.

But since he had on a thick mustache and had an even thicker accent, he was hard to recognize.

Dustin Hoffman in *The Holiday*

Get this: Hoffman was never meant to be in the movie. He only made an appearance since he was around during the movie store scene.

His cameo had a cool layer since Miles picked up a copy of The Graduate and began to sing Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson.”

Glenn Close in *Hook*

Carrie Fisher wasn't the only celeb cameo in Hook. Glenn Close was also in it, with lines and all!

But since she had a full beard as Gutless the pirate, it was super hard for fans to tell.

Jimmy Buffett in *Jurassic World*

This cameo was everything.

Since Jimmy is good friends with the movie's producer, Frank Marshall, he got to play a man who wears a peach-colored shirt.

Not only that, but he double-fists margaritas as he tries to dodge a pterodactyl attack.

Harry Styles in *Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker*

Who knew Harry was a Star Wars fan? It was Mark Hamill who started the rumor that the singer appears as a stormtrooper around the 20- to 25-minute mark.

We wish we could see under those masks!

Sir Richard Branson in *Casino Royale*

Take a good look since this will be the only time you see the billionaire flying commercial!

According to Cinema Blend, he got his cameo after helping the movie at the last minute by lending them a plane.

Jim Carrey in *Liar, Liar*

In addition to being the star of the movie, Jim pulled off such a "him" move by making a cameo as Fire Marshall Bill, his old character from In Living Color.

Since he was among other people in the scene, it's hard to see him. But once you do, you LOL.

James Cameron in *Titanic*

If you're wondering why it was James' hand in this scene and not Leo's, it's because he drew that charcoal of naked Kate Winslet.

In 2011, it even sold for $16,000 at a movie memorabilia auction by Premiere Props.

Trevor Noah in *Black Panther*

While you may not see The Daily Show host on screen, you will hear his South African voice.

He voiced "Griot," the A.I. system that helped guide Martin Freeman's character as he flew a virtual plane during the big battle scene.

Stephen Colbert in *The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug*

This was a HUGE honor for the talk show host, who is basically the biggest LOTR fan ever.

He played a hooded spy in Laketown. But since he had an eyepatch, it was hard to recognize him at first.

Matt Damon in *Thor: Ragnarok*

Marvel fans got a serious giggle when Loki dressed up as his father and staged a play called “The Tragedy of Loki.”

But it wasn't Tom Hiddleston who played Loki in the play, it was Matt Damon!

Luke Hemsworth in *Thor: Ragnarok*

Speaking of that infamous theater scene, fans of the Hemsworth brothers were able to spot a familiar face: Chris' real-life older brother!

He played the fake-Thor and totally nailed it. Good to know we always have a back-up Thor if we need one!

Mike Myers in *Bohemian Rhapsody*

The Austin Powers actor's cameo was actually a full-circle moment.

That's because his line, "No one is going to be head-banging in the car to 'Bohemian Rhapsody'!” was a direct reference to his character in Wayn'e's World doing just that.

The Jonas Brothers in *Night at the Museum 2*

The JoBros made quite a unique appearance in the film.

They played the three Cupid statues that serenaded Larry (Ben Stiller) and Amelia (Amy Adams) with one of their own songs, "Lovebug." How sweet!

Elon Musk in *Iron Man 2*

Tony Stark finally met his match!

While brief, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX appeared as himself in the Marvel film.

After Stark complimented him on his Merlin engines, Elon said, "I’ve got an idea for an electric jet!"

Matt Damon in *Deadpool 2*

What is a cameo list without this epic appearance by Matt Damon?

He wore a prosthetic nose and beer-belly to pull off a very believable southerner. Brad Pitt made a cameo as himself in the same film.

Chris Martin in *Shaun of the Dead*

While the rumor of the Coldplay singer playing a zombie wasn't true, he did, in fact, make an appearance on Shaun's TV.

He played one of the supporters of a fictional charity called ZombAid in the movie's final scene.

Molly Ringwald in *Not Another Teen Movie*

It's fitting that a film that parodies the entire genre of teen-angst films would feature an original member of the Brat Pack.

Molly makes an appearance toward the end of the movie and calls Jake (Chris Evans) out for quoting Pretty in Pink.

Stan Lee in *Avengers: Age Of Ultron*

I suppose I could have put down just about any Stan Lee cameo and it would have sufficed.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Stan has to be walked out of the bar after consuming Thor's Asgardian liquor. It's classic and hilarious.

Dan Aykroyd (again) in *Casper*

One of the most memorable lines from Casper is when Dan Aykroyd says, "who ya gonna call? Someone else."

It's a brilliant throwback to Ghostbusters and a clever way to convey just how menacing the Ghostly Trio truly is.

David Bowie in *The Prestige*

David Bowie makes a short but incredibly impactful cameo appearance as Nikola Tesla.

In the film, it's Tesla who designs the replicating machine for Robert Angier. Bowie does such a brilliant job that many fans missed him entirely their first go-around.

Channing Tatum in *This Is The End*

Desperate times call for desperate measures, but I for one never foresaw a scenario in which Channing Tatum would become the sex slave of Danny McBride.

That was definitely a curveball that I didn't see coming.

Bret McKenzie in *The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring*

Bret McKenzie is one half of the folk/comedy duo, Flight of the Conchords. But with that long mane of chestnut-brown hair and that smooth babyface, you'd never be able to tell that it was him.

Johnny Depp in *21 Jump Street*

When Johnny had the blond wig and beard on, I had no idea that it was him.

Johnny also starred in the 21 Jump Street TV series that the film is based on, so it only seems fitting that he'd make an appearance.

Ian Brown in *Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban*

Ian Brown is an incredibly well-known and respected British musician. He's the lead singer and multi-instrumentalist for the band The Stone Roses.

You can spot him reading a copy of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History Of Time inside The Leaky Cauldron.

Donald J. Trump in *Home Alone 2: Lost In New York*

Enjoy this cameo while you can! In recent weeks, several petitions have begun to surface requesting to have Donald J. Trump's scene scrubbed from future versions of Home Alone 2.

Michael Jackson in *Men In Black 2*

That's not a look-alike or CGI, it's really the King of Pop! Supposedly, Michael was such a huge fan of the first film that he requested a cameo appearance in the sequel.

Danny Pudi in *Captain America: The Winter Soldier*

Many will likely remember Danny as the lovable TV geek, Abed Nadir, from NBC's Community.

He shines briefly in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, making a cameo as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Keith Richards in *Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End*

Most fans of the first film were well aware of the fact that Johnny modeled the character of Jack Sparrow largely after Rolling Stones guitarist, Keith Richards.

It was nothing short of poetic to cast Keith as Jack's father.

Tom Cruise in *Tropic Thunder*

Tom Cruise' cameo appearance in Tropic Thunder was so incredibly awe-inspiring that he received a Golden Globe nomination for all his hard work.

I think what really seals the deal is the after-credits dance scene, don't you agree?

Ozzy Osbourne in *Little Nicky*

Ozzy Osbourne has built a career from his infamous reputation as heavy metal's Prince of Darkness.

The fact that he becomes the savior of sorts in Adam Sandler's satirically satanic comedy is pure brilliance.

Matt Damon (again) in *EuroTrip*

Let me be the first one to say that EuroTrip is not a good movie. But one of the lone shining moments is undoubtedly this shocking appearance by Matt Damon.

If I'm being honest, I still sometimes catch myself singing "Scotty Doesn't Know" in my darkest moments.

Steven Spielberg in *Blues Brothers*

That's right, the legendary director is the one who helps The Blues Brothers pay their taxes!

Boy, that's quite an outfit Steven is rocking. Those glasses just might be the creepiest things I've ever seen in my life.
