A cameo (also known as a cameo role or cameo performance) is a brief appearance or voice part of a known person in a TV show or film, typically unnamed or appearing as themselves. These roles are generally small, many of them non-speaking ones, and are commonly either appearances in a work in which they hold some special significance (such as actors from an original movie appearing in its remake).
