22+ Of The Most Well Hidden Celeb Cameos We All Missed

Some of the most fun moments in watching a film involve you hitting whoever is next to you and going, "Is that who I think it is?" right in their ear.

Wait, that's just me?

Well, if you want to join me in scaring your friends and punching the air when you guess that celeb correctly, then read on.

Matt Damon in "Deadpool"


Everyone — and I mean everyone — missed this cameo.

And that's because you fully cannot recognize Matt Damon under all those prosthetics.

He's the hillbilly who believes deeply in the benefits of wet wipes. As for his friend? Well, that's Alan Tudyk.

Jimmy Buffett in "Jurassic World"

Wastin' away in Margaritaville...literally.

Jimmy Buffet made a memorable cameo in Jurassic World as a magarita-loving park guest.

He made sure to grab a sip before bolting away from the Pterosaurs, and for that I respect him.

Garrett Morris in "Ant-Man"


If you blinked when Ant-Man fell on top of a car, then you missed who was behind the wheel.

It was SNL alum Garrett Morris, who actually dressed up as Ant-Man way back in the day.

Bill Murray in "Dumb and Dumber To"


The level of comedy that movies are on when they hide really high-profile actors behind masks is...beyond this realm.

Bill Murray hid in plain sight for Dumb and Dumber To. He played Harry's roommate, who had some illegal hobbies.

Bryan Singer in "X-Men: Days of Future Past"


Directors are much easier to hide than high-profile actors, even if they are famous ones.

For X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer stepped behind a (smaller) camera to become a bystander filming the fight between Mystique and Magneto.

Daniel Craig in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

Did you spot Daniel Craig in The Force Awakens?

Probably not, on account of him being, you know, inside a Storm Trooper suit.

Peep James Bond in Rey's interrogation scene...if you can.

Cameron Diaz in "Minority Report"


In between Tom Cruise running all over the damn place, this brief shot of Cameron Diaz is visible. Well, the top of her head, anyway.

Bonus points: Director Cameron Crowe is front and center, staring the camera down.

Jim Carrey in "Liar, Liar"

Reddit | Heisenbro3556

Yes, you are correct: Jim Carrey does star in Liar, Liar.

However, some eagle-eyed In Living Color fans spotted the actor in the background of one scene dressed as his iconic character, Fire Marshall Bill.

Cynthia Nixon in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"


In Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Jason Segel got wasted while sitting in a bar.

What you didn't catch was Cynthia Nixon walking behind he drunkenly talked about Sex and the City.

Brad Pitt in "Deadpool 2"

YouTube | Lord Serverinus

Pitt's character in Deadpool 2, The Vanisher, only appears for mere his character dies.

The producers conceived the joke when they realized that having the invisible character only reveal his face at his death was a perfect moment for a celebrity cameo.

Chris Martin in "Shaun of the Dead"

Simon Pegg created a cult phenomenon when he wrote Shaun of the Dead.

But he was doing something else, too — giving movie buffs the challenge of finding Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin in the background of a scene.

Yeah, idk why Chris Martin was there, either. But I'm cool with it.

Nathan Fillion in "Guardians of the Galaxy"


Dude. Shiny.

(That one was for Firefly fans).

Turns out, Nathan Fillion made a vocal cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy as a huge alien that Star-Lord faced off with while in prison.

Richard Branson in "Casino Royale"

Reddit | ThrowAway_459

I mean, it's no Jimmy Buffett in Jurassic World, but it'll do.

Richard Branson earned himself a small cameo in Casino Royale, thanks to his donation of a plane.

So yeah, he bought his way into a James Bond film. Quite a Bond villain thing to do, tbh...

Dan Aykroyd in "Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom"


Of all the cameos on this list, this one blew my mind the most.

Dan Aykryod's close friend, Steven Spielberg, had no trouble sneaking him into the film.

He appears as Weber for a few seconds, shaking Indy's hand.

Cate Blanchett in "Hot Fuzz"


Simon Pegg strikes again!

Cate Blanchett appears in Hot Fuzz as Nick's ex-girlfriend, Janine.

You can't see much of her face in the film, thanks to the mask, but that voice is unmistakeable.

Glenn Close in "Hook"


Remember the pirate that Captain Hook made cry and then threw into the "boo box" in Hook?

Glenn Close. In drag.

I know.

Another fabulous cameo comes in the form of Phil Collins as the police detective!

George Harrison in "Life Of Brian"

Reddit | anoelr1963

Believe it or not, everyone's favorite British comedy group had a hard time financing this classic film.

Lucky for them, and all of us, George Harrison stepped in and actually started his own production company to fund Life Of Briansimply because he wanted to see it.

This is the kind of energy I want to put into the universe.

Peter Jackson in "Hot Fuzz"

Montreal Gazette

Massive Shaun of the Dead fan Peter Jackson jumped at the chance to appear in a Simon Pegg production.

You can see him taking a knife to Simon in Hot Fuzz, dressed as Santa. Why not?

James Cameron in "Titanic"


Remember the unforgettable scene in Titanic, when Jack draws a nude Rose?

That wasn't Leo drawing her — it was James Cameron!

Cameron is left-handed, so they had to flip the frame in post-production so he could match Leo's right-handed movements.

Jimmy Buffett in "Hook"


Surprise! Another Hook cameo, because that movie was full of them.

Long before he and his margaritas hit up Jurassic World, Jimmy Buffett was cavorting around as a pirate in Hook.

Ron Jeremy in "Ghostbusters"


Obviously, this was one of porn star Ron Jeremy's more family-friendly movie scenes.

The role was uncredited, and happens about an hour into the movie after the explosion at Ghostbusters headquarters.

Trevor Noah in "Black Panther"

YouTube | Ankka5

Trevor Noah? In Black Panther? It's more likely than you think.

Noah loaned his voice to the film. You can hear him when Martin Freeman hops inside Shuri's Wakandan ship simulation — he's the voice of it!

Carrie Fisher and George Lucas in "Hook"

Reddit | u/Gaebril

You didn't think I'd forget these two, did you?

The iconic couple kissing on the bridge in the opening scenes of Hook are, in fact, Carrie Fisher and George Lucas.

Carrie worked on the script for Hook, which explains why it's amazing. I will not be taking other opinions at this time. Thank you.

David Beckham in The Man from "UNCLE"

Digital Spy

If you look past the projector flare and large glasses, you can see that the Russian projectionist from The Man from UNCLE is, in fact, David Beckham.

Guy Richie asked David to do the cameo, and he obviously agreed.
