      Also agree with Eminem in Funny People.. Self absorbed mess of a movie but his cameo is the highlight

      So, at 22, you have Kelly Brook. Can I just point out to you what you said about her performance the other week.. and I quote... "The slimy blonde quizmaster moves from rags to riches and Laura Aikman to Kelly Brook, who here seems determined to bury her career like it’s someone she’s just run over".... I've got to say that you guys make less and less sense to me as each new issue comes out. You're turning into ITV 2, which is a bloody shame as you used to be so much more.

      A very fun list! And ... again, of course there could be more entries, like these: Bill Murray (again) in "Space Jam". James Carville in "Old School". Dale Earnhardt Sr. in "Stroker Ace" (...I had to list this one...RIP Dale). And maybe John McEnroe in several Sandler movies...

      I would like to add Vince Vaughn, Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen (apart from his recent detour in drama), Dame Keira Knightley, Gemma Arsetaton, and every other f*cking 'actor' that turns up and think they can f*cking phone in the same performance and hope no-one f*cking notices. Argggh!!!

      How's about Buzz Aldrin in Transformers 3. It must have been weird for him to 'act' against something that wasn't really there. Wonder how he found the experience.

      Love that scene in Waynes World! Also got taught by Pete (Alice's guitarist in that scene) for a lil while was awesome. Resisted the urge to do the "I'm not worthy" thing haha! And HELL YES to NPH he was hilarious in the H&K films! Also that Billy Zane film where Kelly Brook gets her bangers out? Three... And its f*****g HILARIOUS! Someone goes to smash a rock on someone else's head (no spoilers to ruin this amazing film for you guys) and its too heavy for him and he falls over backwards onto a spike. Slapstick gold!

      Where's Charlie Sheen in Being John Molkovich? He plays up to he hell-raising persona, and the banter between him and Malcovich is hilarious (Masheen/Malcatraz)!

      @ChrisWootton - Maybe the article/review you quoted was written by someone else and not Ben Falk (who compiled this list). Total Film isn't a hive mind like The Borg, so it's possible that one writer would have a different opinion to another.

      Might I add if this included TV, it'd be full of Entourage! Seth Green, John Cleese, Jason Patrick, amoung others, all do a fantastic job of playing real a*****e versions of themselves! Same goes for Extras :D One thing that always makes me like an actor is when they can laugh at themselves.

      I think the Jason Biggs and James van der Dawson cameo in jay and silent bob strike back was better than the affleck and Damon one. Also biodome was p**s funny

      Saw a screening of The End of The World and it was so f****n awesome. Many celebrities has cameos playing a corrupt version of themselves. Laugh from start till the end with this movie.
