Sometimes cameos fall flat, but a lot of unexpected ones make movies more memorable. They also point out celebrities who don’t take themselves too seriously. Here are 10 times celebrities hilariously played themselves.
1. Lebron James in Trainwreck
The basketball player shows off his sensitive side by being into Downton Abbey, talking about relationships, and really loving Cleveland in this romantic comedy.
2. Jonah Hill in This Is The End
The funny man shows off his feminine side in the disaster comedy. The take on him is very unexpected which makes it pretty great.
3. Mike Tyson in The Hangover
Never break into the boxer’s home or you’re going to pay. The boxer might be the best part of the first movie thanks to his antics and his tiger.
4. Neil Patrick Harris in the Harold & Kumar series

5. Chuck Norris in Dodgeball
When you need a judge for your dodge ball, game who else would you turn to but Chuck Norris?
6. Bill Murray in Zombieland

7. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Our two fictional characters meet up the two super stars while they’re making Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season and things get interesting.
8. Bob Barker in Happy Gilmore

10. Megan Fox in The Dictator
Megan seems a little down on her luck since her scene involves her being paid to have sex with a dictator.
