The 20 Worst Movie Cameos
Making cameo appearances is an art. No matter how famous you are, how recognizable your face is, you still have to deliver the right lines, make the right moves, and overall, date the movie in a proper way. The cameo is not a big deal for a movie, it’s not a career-ruining thing for the celebrities either, but for some movie fans, they are minor mistakes that are just fun to be found out.
Here are 20 terrible movie cameo appearances that should never happen even for a single second.
20. Django Unchained
The Cameo: Quentin Tarantino shows off his best Australian accent, which frankly, isn’t very good.
Why It’s Bad: Not only is the accent wonky, the whole scene seems an incongruous distraction after the dramatic high point of the Candieland shootout.
19. The Exorcist 3
The Cameo: A bizarre appearance by NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing, seen here playing the Angel of Death.
Why It’s Bad: Random sports cameos are bad enough at the best of times, but in a horror movie? Not for us.
The Cameo: Alanis Morrissette arrives to deliver the baffling climax to Dogma, playing none other than God, er, Herself.
Why It’s Bad: The ending feels like the punchline to a mid-par SNL sketch, rather than a satisfactory payoff to a feature film.
The Cameo: Series author Stephenie Meyer can’t resist getting her mug on screen, appearing here as the cashier at a local diner.
Why It’s Bad: The cameo wouldn’t be so bad if the camera didn’t linger on Meyer for quite so long. She may as well be sitting next to a light-up sign marked “AUTHOR CAMEO!”
