ScreenRant has released a fun new video list that points out famous actors and other well-known people who are secretly hidden in ten popular movies. Some of the cameos include Edward Norton in Kingdom of Heaven, Tim Burton in Hoffa, Gene Hackman in Young Frankenstein, Cameron Crowe and Cameron Diaz in Minority Report.
Most of the time, movie cameos are a fun way to put familiar faces in front of audiences — even if it’s only for a moment or two. Usually, the whole point of a cameo is that we’ll recognize the famous person in front of us. But sometimes, directors get a bit sneaky. They hide famous faces behind masks, make-up and CGI, and sometimes they just put them in roles you wouldn’t expect. And yeah, sure, this might negate the purpose of having an extra celebrity or 2 in the movie, but it also creates some fun Easter eggs for fans to discover.
