People Share Their Favorite "As Himself" Cameos In A Movie

Starring....

Cameos are so fun, right? And occasionally cameos just star the star as themselves. Sometimes whole movies star the star as themselves (ie, Being John Malkovich) but it's always really fun to see a celebrity poke fun at themselves on the big screen.

u/Netwinn asked Reddit for some of their favorites:

Who had the best "as him/herself" cameo in a movie?

Here were some of the most fun answers.

Poor Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks in The Simpsons Movie. "This is Tom Hanks saying if you see me in person, please leave me be."

I Want To Believe

Not a movie, but Alex Trebek (in a fake mustache) as a government agent who looks "incredibly like Alex Trebek" was a pretty good laugh in one of the funniest episodes of The X-Files.

Billy Idol Gets It

Billy Idol in the Wedding singer.

Why Is Everyone Else Silent?

Marcel Marceu in Silent Movie by Mel Brooks. For those who don't know, he's a famous mime who has the only dialogue in the film.

C'mon Chappelle

Wayne Brady on Chapelle's Show.

"Does Wayne Brady have to choke a b-tch?"

Adam East

How about the fact that Adam West is always "Adam West" in so many tv shows.

And He's Not Even An Actor

The only person to ever play themselves in Star Trek was Stephen Hawking.

Good Movie Hunting

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back'

Baywatch By The Sea

David Hasselhoff in the Spongebob Movie

The End For The End

I really liked Michael Cera in This Is the End.

How many times have you met the man or woman of you dreams until they blindsided you with something so insane that it had you sprinting for the door? It's enough to make you want to stay single and stay clear of the chaos and confusion of the dating world.

There's a huge difference between a nice guy and a "nice guy." Actual nice guys treat women with respect simply because they're human beings and all humans should be treated with respect unless they prove themselves to be terrible people. The "Nice Guy" is a whole other monster. "Nice guy" always has an ulterior motive. "Nice guy" isn't nice to women because they're human, he's nice because he wants something in return - and he often flips out in scary ways when he doesn't get it.
