How were the others clichéd and his being mistaken for Heff not?

Just because it was the first one, and it was funny and it was unexpected .

It was about his 8th, or 9th. I think enough thought went into them all (the MCU ones at least) to ensure none were clichéd.

Mike Skinner (The Streets) in Doctor Who 'The Time of Angels'. Played a security guard. Got kissed by River Song with hallucinogenic lipstick and he lets her through to whatever he was security guarding.

Some really good ones. Especially that doc Martin one.

Just to clarify the rules a bit.

1. It’s TV not film. Otherwise it would be just lots of pictures of Matt Damon in different wigs.
2. Extended cameos or guest star appearances are okay.
3. A famous actor appearing in Star Trek before they were famous doesn’t count. (At that point they were an extra) they have to have be famous BEFORE the appearance.
4. Shows that are well known for big name cameos like the US office or Big Bang theory don’t really count as they aren’t really unexpected.
5. It’s TV and not movies.

Mark Hamill in Man Down was a genuine shock. A character that lived off screen but had been referred to throughout the whole series, revealed to be him right at the end.

Apparently did it as a tribute to Rik Mayall, who Hamill was a huge fan of.

These are the best sort of cameos, where it's never credited and you never really know if it's them or not

I don’t think it’s that surprising when a star appears in a show that likes to have celebrity cameos. For example Extras hardly let an episode go by without featuring someone who you wouldn’t normally expect in a small sitcom.


Sigourney Weaver on Doc Martin is the best on this list so far. I assume cameos are not something it normally does (I have never watched the show).


One that surprised me at the time was John Cleese in Cheers. But I think by that time the show was huge, so it wasn’t difficult to attract big names.


I don’t know why Stan Lee was mentioned. His cameos are in films. But he’s been doing them long before the MCU. He was even in Mallrats (he’s reading the Mallrats script in Captain Marvel).
