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.
John McCain: Parks and Recreation
"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.
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.
Matt Damon: Deadpool 2
Matt Damon has a wide range as an actor and has played some crazy characters in his day. But for the most part, we were expecting them when we went into the films. But in “Deadpool 2,” we were all pretty shocked to see the Matt Damon “redneck” scene.
He is almost unrecognizable, with special effects makeup, a wig, and a fake beer belly. And, while the actor appeared in the script as “Redneck #2,” he wasn’t even officially credited on the film.
Jimmy Buffett: Jurassic World 2
The Margarita Man himself served up drinks in one scene of the “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” film. The musician was a longtime friend of the film's producer, Frank Marshall, who thought he’d add a little extra to the movie, and he did. In the film, he can be seen carrying two margaritas through a bar as he works.
Other than encouraging people to chill with Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett was also seen on the screen in small roles in various productions. The most memorable one is, perhaps, the recurring character of Frank Bama in "Hawaii Five-0."
