    21 Movie Cameos I Bet You Didn't Even Notice, They Were So Sneaky And Random

    There's a reason why you might not have recognized Jeff Bezos in Star Trek Beyond...

    1. Bet you didn't know that one of the rednecks in this random _Deadpool 2 _scene is none other than Matt Damon.

    Alan Tudyk is the other redneck, but he's got less heavy makeup.

    2. Or that Glenn Close plays a male pirate in_ Hook. _

    Her disguise was so good that costar Dante Basco didn't recognize her.

    3. Did you know that Mark Hamill has played many other _Star Wars _characters than just Luke? For example, he played Dobbu Scay in The Last Jedi.

    4. I doubt you spotted George Lucas's cameo as Baron Papanoida in Revenge of the Sith under all that blue makeup.

    5. TIL that the claymation narwhal that voices the iconic line "Bye Buddy, I hope you find your dad" in Elf is none other than director Jon Favreau.

    6. And you probably didn't recognize him all grown up, but Ralphie from_ A Christmas Story_ has a small role in_ Elf._

    7. I doubt you noticed that Albert Finney, who played Leo in Miller’s Crossing, also played a female bathroom attendant in the below scene. 

    8. Or that Michael J. Fox played not only Marty, but also most of his family in Back to the Future Part II.

    9. _LOTR _superfan Stephen Colbert has such a small and unrecognizable cameo in The Hobbit that there's no way you noticed it!

    10. Director Peter Jackson also had tiny cameos in LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring and The Hobbit as the same nondescript villager.

    11. And even if you caught that one, there's no way you recognized him as this pirate Legolas shoots with an arrow in The Return of the King!

    12. Jeff Bezos appeared in Star Trek Beyond, and I can guarantee none of you recognized him.

    13. In an opposite example, you probably didn't recognize Ahmed Best, the actor who plays Jar Jar, in this _Star Wars _club scene.

    Anthony Daniels, who voiced C3PO, also makes a cameo in the scene.

    14. He's not wearing any prosthetics, but this Will Ferrell cameo in Impractical Jokers is SO tiny that I'm willing to bet you didn't notice it.

    15. Jim Carrey obviously played the main character in_ Liar Liar_, but did you know he also appeared as a background character? He was dressed as Fire Marshall Bill, a character he'd played on_ In Living Color._

    16. Similarly, I'm sure you know Eddie Murphy starred in Coming to America, but did you know he also played Randy the singer and Saul in the barbershop scenes?
