Chris Martin - "Shaun of the Dead"
The famous singer and keyboardist of Coldplay, deciding to play in a movie, chose not only the very small role, but not the best film. The parody comedy "Shaun of the Dead" - frankly, not a blockbuster - it plays a zombie, whose main characters meet on the road and run away from him a minute later.

Johnny Depp - "21 Jump Street"
At the end of 1980 hserial "21 Jump Street" brought fame little-known then young actor Johnny Depp. Well, the debt must be repaid, and in the remake of the series 2013 unrecognizable Depp appears in a cameo as a victim of the main villain, barely having time to exchange a few words with the young police officer in the performance of Channing Tatum, who went to that same role once played by Depp.

Cate Blanchett - "Hot Fuzz"
Nasoyan stars love self-irony - to find where it is greater than in a typical British comedy, with its typical British humor! The creators of the action comedy "Hot Fuzz" have picked up a good joke for Cate Blanchett - recognized around the world beautiful blonde appears on screen in the role of an ex-girlfriend of the protagonist.

Balance is Morrisett
Comedy "Dogma" - a parade of stars, from Alan Rickman to Matt Damon. And they play a variety of representatives of the divine and the diabolical armies of solving their problems on Earth. Who could play the role of a supreme being, God in such a company? None other than as a singer Alanis Morriset, a girl with an angelic voice and a spark of the divine talent. Well, Alanis unexpected craving for cinema is easy to understand: who would not stay in the role of God at least a few minutes of screen time?
Michael Jackson - "Men in Black - 2"
Superstar appears on the screen for a few minutes - in the role of an undercover agent of the secret service for contacts with aliens, making a report on the work of aliens in Antarctica. Well, the "Oscar" for self-irony here would be quite appropriate.
Kurt Vonnegut - "Back to School"
Comedy 1986 "Back to school" about a millionaire, will go with his son to the university to help to cope with the vicissitudes of study, to put it mildly, does not apply to intellectual films. Jokes on the screen - completely below the belt. Nevertheless, at least in one of the episodes of the intellect surpasses - when the screen in a cameo by Kurt Vonnegut, helps the protagonist to write essays, appears on the screen ... Kurt Vonnegut himself. As a writer was persuaded to take part in such a vigorous project - a mystery.
Daniel Craig - "Star Wars: The Awakening forces"

However, the reasons for the appearance in the film Segal remained a mystery.
Quentin Tarantino - "Inglourious Basterds"
Tarantino appears on screen in almost every soy picture - here is the director hobby. But the most unusual cameo from him - perhaps, after all, in the movie "Inglourious Basterds." In it, he does not even appear in the entire frame. In the story of the painting, the SS Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) strangling the British spy Bridzhin von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger). But his hands in a scene of suffocation belong not to Walz, and Tarantino himself! Why not trust the director this scene and the actor chose to perform her own, is not known.
Eldar Ryazanov - "Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!"
