And this would be?
Are you asking for the line or the actor?
Jack in Casablanca Revisited
What is the line? Who's your fav?
Alan Parker, the film director, appeared in his movie Evita as a film director.
The line was "this gun shoots backwards, I've just killed myself" ... brilliant use of a cameo.
Favorite actor: William Holden
Frank Oz in The Blues Brothers. He's the prison officer who returns the items Jake Blues checked in when he arrived in Prison.
Keanu Reeves in the TV movie Letting Go (which starred John Ritter and Sharon Gless). He played a teenager who is in the Audio Store and keeps cranking up the volume on the stereo display to the max.
Anthony Daniels in Star Wars - Episode II - Attack Of The Clones. In addition to playing C-3PO, he also appears as a patron in the Bar that Anakin and Obi-Wan enter.
Peter Fernandez and Corrine Orr in Speed Racer (2008 Movie). Fernandez was the voice of Speed Racer and Orr was the voice of Trixie in the 1960s English dub of the Speed Racer anime. Both did voice work in the live-action Speed Racer movie.
George Harrison in The Life of Brian.
If I had to bet money, I'd say that Clint is the guy at 28:28 but they overdubbed someone else's voice.
The Clash in The King of Comedy - credited as "Street Trash" I believe. Joe Strummer in focus. Mick Jones a little out of focus on the right.
That's the band's manager, Kosmo Vinyl, in focus...NOT Joe Strummer.
Far right (foreground and blurry) is singer/actress Ellen Foley - the female singer on Meatloaf's "Bat Out Of Hell" album, sometime girlfriend of Mick Jones, inspiration of "Should I Stay or Should I Go" and Public Defender Billie Young on Season Two of Night Court.
Ellen Foley was the inspiration for "Should I Stay or Should I Go"?? I did not know that
Nah, that's a small part. And fully credited.
I don’t know if this is true, but I’ve seen it said that Steve Ditko, comic artist and part-creator of Spider-Man, can be seen in a street shot in Taxi Driver?? He did live in New York most of his life.
oh yea, Coppola in Apocalypse as a news cameraman/reporter
Harrison Ford in American Graffiti 2
Also in the film of Hair but more than a cameo
Twyla Tharp has a cameo in Hair
That's debatable. The story goes that Benny visited the set while they were shooting a scene in Rick's cafe. Someone (perhaps Benny himself) suggested that Benny join the extras populating the busy cafe scene, either as a waiter or as one of the customers sitting at a table.
I've never seen a screen shot in which Benny is identifiable. (And yes, I've seen the link in the post above. It is clear that none of those people is Benny.) My guess is either the story is true - he is in the film, but it's impossible to spot and positively identify him; or the story is false - he did visit the set but somehow the story got got exaggerated and added the false detail that he appeared on camera, when he actually did not.
P.S. I have Benny's autobiography and his biography by his daughter, but can't get my hands on them right now. I do not recall any confirmation of this rumour in either book.

Jack in Casablanca Revisited
I'm not an expert but based on the pictiures on that site, Jack Benny may have been there but those pictures don't show him conclusively. Specifically the last three pictures; the hair part and the eyebrows are different from the picture they show of Jack Benny from that time. If anything only the first few pictures give his softer body shape.
Speaking of Jack Benny, he and dozens of others have cameos in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World - Wikipedia
In the rather excellent Source Code, directed by Duncan Jones (AKA Zowie Bowie), the plot of which has a whiff of Quantum Leap about it, the main character's dad is played by Scott Bakula - you only hear his voice on the phone.
There's a cameo by Herge, the creator of Tintin, in most of the Tintin books and all of the TV adaptations, usually as a face in a crowd scene. Good fun to spot once you know what he looks like.
Spielberg's big-budget Tintin movie opens with Tintin being sketched by a street caracaturist - this is Herge, and the caricature he draws is exactly the style of the original comics.
Raymond Chandler in Double Indemnity
How about Weird Al Yankovic in Bill & Ted Face the Music?
Sylvester Stallone cameo in ‘Stayin’ Alive’, which he directed.
Pappy on a Baa , Baa , Blacksheep. Weird because me and Paw in Law was talking about that today. Maybe someone already mentioned it.
Separate names with a comma.
