Whether it's a star's first-ever role in a television show before they made it big, or a director choosing to have a high-profile actor appear for a split second in a surprise scene, cameos have a lot of power over viewers. They can make a scene come together perfectly or completely bring it down. Find out which of your favorite celebrities have been asked to play themselves in some of these hit movies.
Ben Affleck, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The hit 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan just like the hit TV show. Do you remember this familiar face during the scene with the high school basketball game? That's none other than Ben Affleck playing your classic jock character. This cameo was right in the middle of his come-up into fame.
A Dynamic Duo
Ben Affleck should credit a lot of his '90s fame to his writing partner and best friend, Matt Damon. They wrote and starred in films like Good Will Hunting in 1997. That film is considered one of their best joint efforts, and Affleck went on to star in films such as Shakespeare In Love, Armageddon, and Pearl Harbor. He and brother Casey Affleck are both still esteemed actors, and Damon remains close as well.
