“Parks and Recreation” have had their fair share of political cameos over the years, featuring all sorts of politicians, including Joe Biden himself. But on one particular episode of the show, John McCain makes an appearance.
In it, he tries to catch the attention of the main character, played by Amy Poehler. Unfortunately for him, she’s preoccupied with something else and doesn’t even notice him.
Elon Musk: Iron Man 2
It’s pretty fitting that tech billionaire Elon Musk appears in a cameo on "Iron Man 2." After all, Robert Downey Jr. spent quite some time studying the SpaceX CEO to basically portray him on screen, and, in the process, the two became friends.
Although it’s not a very large part, Musk can be seen having a conversation with the main character, Tony Stark, during his party, where he even tries to pitch him an idea for a new electric jet. Parts of the movie were filmed at the SpaceX facilities.
The Jonas Brothers: Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
The Jonas Brothers don’t actually appear on screen in the second installment of the "Night at the Museum" movie franchise, but superfans may recognize their voices, coming from three stone angelic cherubs. The identities behind the voices become particularly clear when the cherubs break out into Jonas’ song, Lovebug.
The Grammy-nominated Jonas Brothers are most well-known for their music, but they have also displayed acting skills as they rose to fame on the Disney channel.
Mike Myers: Bohemian Rhapsody
Funnyman Mike Myers appears in the Queen biopic film "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a fictional record exec who delivers the line “no one is going to be headbanging in the car to Bohemian Rhapsody,” – a nod to one of his other famous films, "Wayne’s World," in which he does just that.
"Wayne’s World" helped popularize Queen’s music again in the US after the death of Freddie Mercury.
Dolly Parton: Miss Congeniality
Dolly Parton’s cameo in this hilarious 2005 film is so much more than just a brief appearance. Some would probably say that it’s the funniest scene in the movie. The country music star plays herself, though there are imposter Dollys afoot as well, which leads to the real Dolly being mistakenly tackled by an FBI agent. Whoops!
The country music star has recently been in the news for modestly turning down a proposal that a statue of her be placed at the Tennessee Capitol building. After all, she already has Dollywood!
