Peter Gabriel in New York Stories
Jim Jarmusch in Sling Blade
It’s not a movie, so, tangential to this thread, but Jarmusch made a cameo appearance as himself on an episode of Pamela Anderson’s syndicated series V.I.P., of all things.
Hold That Lion
The only time all 3 Howard brothers appeared in a film, and the only time Curly appeared after his stroke, AND with a full head of hair.
Scorsese shows up briefly in After Hours
Pappy Boyington played a cameo on the tv show Baa, Baa black Sheep which was about his his squadron during WWII. There, I think I got that right.
Tom Skerritt in Harold and Maude.
Lou Rawls has a cameo as a cab driver in Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
Michael Nesmith as a cab driver in the movie Burglar with Whoopie Goldberg and Bobcat Goldthwait.
"that's my cousin strawberry man ..."
tom skeritt in UP IN SMOKE
often missed? not sure lol.
A few fun cameos in this video.
And George as a floor-sweeper in Checking Out.
Tom Cruise in Young Guns. They mention in the commentary that he was friends with some of the actors. They threw a hat and a big mustache on him. I believe he’s the first “bad guy” killed at the last gunfight when they start coming out of the house. He enters the frame, camera cuts away then cuts back as he’s shot out of the frame. It’s my favorite movie trivia question to use on people.
I know you're not serious, but here's an article about the whole "Elvis in Home Alone" myth. The extra whom people believe resembled Elvis is Gary R. Grott, who passed away in 2016. Grott was only 41 at the time of the film, so he was substantially younger than Elvis would have been if still alive.
I've seen the film many times and never noticed it either.
David Crosby, of all people, has 3, count em, 3 different cameos: Hook, Thunderheart, and Crossing the Bridge.
I recognized him each time due to his ... unique appearance.
Frank had basically the same cameo a few years later in Trading Places as a cop who inventories Dan Aykroyd's possessions at the jail.

George Clooney is one of the soldiers in the shoot-out scene in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Louie Anderson - Cloak & Dagger (1984)
What about Martin Scorcese as a passenger in a taxi in 'taxi driver'?
and yeah, sadly, I don't think (follow the links above) that it is Jack Benny in Casablanca.
Duke Ellington makes a cameo in 'Anatomy of a Murder' if i remember correctly.
Bob Dylan as 'alias' in Pat garrett and billy the kid (and also of course did the soundtrack,with the song 'knockin on heaven's door)
Truman Capote in "Annie Hall" (as someone on the street outside)
and its credited, so not really a cameo, but Paul Simon in that film too. Oh and the guy in the LA party who forgets his matra is jeff goldblum and annie's brother is christopher walken
Robert Duvall in the same movie.
Yep this was already mentioned on page 2 of this thread so I didn't see the point in repeating it✌️♠️
