ON MOVIES ~ Stealing Scenes From Actors...



Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Leave a link to your blog post where you’ve shared your response or, if you don’t have a blog, share your response in the comment section at the end of this post.

This week's movie topic is all about Cameos...

While watching the Daytona 500, aka "America's Race", this weekend we couldn't get images of Talladega Nights out of our brain since the Fox broadcasting crew had cameos in the movie. That got us to thinking about other movies with cameos that were entertaining. Here are some memorable cameos we enjoy - which ones are on your list?

  • Aretha Franklin - The Blues Brothers (1980)
  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & Barbara Billingsley - Airplane! (1980)
  • Bob Uecker - Major League (1989)
  • Quentin Tarantino - Pulp Fiction (1994)
  • Bob Barker - Happy Gilmore (1996)
  • Roger Clemens - Kingpin (1996)

    Man, you always get the good ones! I decided to take it a step further and list the director cameos. Here is my post:

    Being from the UK, have to admit that I'd not heard of a lot of the people you mentioned, even though I'd seen some of the movies (although there were exceptions and I agree that Aretha was great in The Blues Brothers).

    Anyway, I've now posted my own list, although in the spirit of your list I tried to concentrate on non-actors.

    My absolute favorites were when Alfred Hitchcock would make appearances in his films...

    Stephen King does it too... not that I'm a sci-fi nut... those are just two that I can think of right now!

    Bill Murray was the best thing in Tootsie! "I think we're getting into a weird area here."
