There is an old saying: There are no small parts, only small actors.
That is never more true than when it comes to the movie cameo. Just watch Anchorman online, watch 21 Jump Street online and even watch Pulp Fiction online and you'll see that the cameo can oftentimes steal the thunder from the stars themselves!
Click through and enjoy our 9 legendary movie cameos that history will record as some of the most impactful!
1. Johnny Depp in 21 Jump Street
Johnny Depp had been rumored to be in the 21 Jump Street movie. But, they kept it under wraps successfully. So, when he took off his wig and mustache and it was Depp... fans of his turn on the original show and new fans of the movie cheered!
2. Christopher Walken in Pulp Fiction
Christopher Walken made quite an impression with only a few short moments in Pulp Fiction. Just don't ask him to keep a watch for you.
3. Keith Richards in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Since Johnny Depp modeled his Captain Jack after Keith Richards, it was only appropriate that Richards appear at some point in the series as his character's (drunken) father.
4. Michael Cera in This Is the End
Does an appearance count as a cameo if the person practically steals the movie? That was the case with Michael Cera and his persona-busting turn in This Is the End.
5. Will Ferrell in Wedding Crashers
You would almost think that Will Ferrell would be in the cast of Wedding Crashers. But, then you realize he wasn't... except for one shining moment.
6. Tim Robbins in Anchorman
Tim Robbins could not have been a better choice to appear (briefly) as the anchor of the PBS news program. Love his fro!
7. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Airplane
The whole movie he tries to pretend he's not Kareem. But when that kid tells him his dad thinks he's lazy on the court, he breaks character and the sky hook man arrives!
8. Hugh Jackman in X-Men: First Class
Hugh Jackman will be all over X-Men: Days of Future Past. Seeing him say 'f--- off' in First Class was a fan head-blowing moment.
