Top 10 Funniest Film Cameos (Part 1)

10. Alice Cooper - Wayne's World

Alice Cooper, real name Vincent Damon Furnier, is known for his somewhat scary stage performances in the past. Back in the 60's, he was even involved in an "accidental" incident involving a chicken that came onto stage. How the hell a chicken happened to come on stage is unknown. The story goes that, thinking the chicken could fly, Alice threw the chicken into the crowd; naturally, the fans in the first few rows tore that chicken apart and naturally, tabloids embellished on that incident, noting that Alice tore the chicken's head off and drank its blood in an Ozzy-like fashion. Over the next few decades, Alice Cooper developed the rock theatric show, even employing a magician to help with such acts as their on-stage guillotine. Because of this image that Alice Cooper developed, it was hilarious to see the "real" Alice Cooper when Wayne and Garth met him back stage:

9. Billy Idol - The Wedding Singer

Billy Idol could make a cameo in anything and it'd be awesome...because Billy Idol is awesome. What better movie for it than a comedy set in the 80's involving weddings, a time when Billy was in his prime after releasing the hit single "White Wedding." If you forget the scene, Billy makes an appearance toward the end of The Wedding Singer aboard the plane that Adam Sandler gets on in hopes of stopping Julia from becoming Julia Goolia. Billy is sitting there in first class and after hearing Adam Sandler's story, takes part in helping him execute his plan.

8. Screech - Made

It's not Screech's performance in his very short appearance in the underrated Made, but the role that he plays in the scene. For those who have not seen this film, the plot is that Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn play good friends that get involved in a money laundering scheme in NYC; Favreau is the level-headed guy who's trying to follow the instructions, but he takes the risk of vouching for his obnoxious hothead friend, played by Vaughn. The following video of Screech's cameo is a bit choppy, and I warn you that there is a good handful of F-bombs in it:

7. Rob Van Winkle - TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze

Better known as Vanilla Ice, this cameo wasn't intended to be funny back when this movie was released because it was during the short time that everyone didn't laugh when hearing "Vanilla Ice." In retrospect, however, this cameo is hilarious. Do you remember those dance moves? Souljaboy's got nothin' on the Turtles and Ice. Go Ninja Go Ninja Go! Shredder had to ruin all the fun though when he busted through the speakers all hopped up on secret ooze.

6. Chazz - Wedding Crashers

This is the first cameo of this list that features someone not playing themselves. It's also probably the first cameo that's actually the best part of the entire movie. Will Ferrell enters the movie toward the end of the film as "Chazz," the guy who's still living at his Mom's house crashing funerals and playing with nunchucks. The "meatloaf" yell is priceless. Once again, although not as many f-bombs are dropped as the above video for Made, I must warn you that this video is NSFW:

Stay tuned for the Top 5 tomorrow...
