The Cameo: Todd Phillips can be seen playing the visitor who knocks on Owen Wilson’s door in search of a bunk-up with his girlfriend.
Why It’s Cool: Six words. “I’m here for the gang bang.”

Not bad little list. However, Polanski only stepped into that role when the actor didn't turn up. And the best director's cameo is always gonna be Terrence Malick in Badlands. Any brief glimpse of that genius' face has gotta be worth the No. 1 spot...?

Peter Jackson in Hot Fuzz?! Well I never..

I always thought the Peter jackson cameo in Hot Fuzz was him as one of those forensic guys at the beginning - So who are those people doing the cameos at that bit (i think Cate Blanchet is one of them)?

Cool list, but cameo is one thing and having a small role is another. QT in Reservoir Dogs can't be considered a cameo because he is in more than one scene. He even reappears later... to die. Also, a hand? Not a cameo. A face is a cameo.

Not necessarily a great cameo (but as you've doubled/trebled up on some of the directors on here), what about Todd Solondz on the bus in As Good As It Gets?

David Cronenberg called Batman stupid and he showed in Jason X?! What an idiot.

No.1: Spielberg at the end of The Blues Brothers.

The other great cameo from Hot Fuzz is Angels girlfriend, played by Cate Blanchett.

Obviously judging from my screenanme here, I am a big fan....so how come no Takashi Miike in Hostel?
Dec 13th 2012, 22:34
What about Richard Linklater in Slackers and more important ,....at the end of Waking Life?

sixth sense? signs?

SiMan, obviously the lady is Cate Blanchett but two of the other forensics geezers are Joe Cornish (Adam and Joe, Attack The Block) and I believe Edgar Wright,might be wrong about Edgar Wright, but the other one is almost certainly Joe Cornish, he is called Bob btw, thanks IMDB

yeah I think I was wrong about Edgar Wright, but that is Joe Cornish.

What about the Grandaddy of cameo directors Stan Lee??
Dec 14th 2012, 14:45
Good list but no Unbreakable?
Dec 16th 2012, 16:55
It's Luke Wilson, not Owen Wilson in Old School, honestly????
Dec 16th 2012, 23:55
Pretty sure that Stan Lee isn't a film director...

My favourite Todd Philips cameo is in Road Trip attempting to suck Amy Smart's toes.
