Stan Lee has a one-second-long cameo appearance in Iron Man 2 (at 00:21, introduced as Larry King): If Stan Lee doesn't count as a person involved in the production, then Larry Ellison also appears in the same scene for about three seconds. I'm not sure if this is the briefest cameo ever, just the first thing that satisfies ...

According to inverse.com, he might appear in 6 unreleased films: Ralph Breaks the Internet: It’s unclear whether or not Lee actually lends his voice to Ralph Breaks the Internet, but outlets are labeling it as a cameo, so Lee probably has at least one line. Madness in the Method: Lee’s credited as “Stan,” which probably means he plays himself, a ...

Brad Pitt's cameo in Deadpool 2 was around 2 seconds long and holds the record I believe. He also did it for a coffee. http://www.factfiend.com/deadpool-2-landed-record-breaking-cameo-coffee/

Alright seems a simple Google search would have done. It was Tobias, as clarified in this article: In Infinity War, Star-Lord, Gamora, Mantis and Drax return to Knowhere in hopes of prying the Reality Stone from The Collector before Thanos can get his hands on it. However, they arrive to find widespread destruction. When they hear Thanos’ booming ...

Basically, they were both fans of Shaun of the Dead and knew the director. From an interview on About.com with Edgar Wright: Interviewer: How did you get Cate Blanchett to do that one little cameo? Wright: I'd met her in LA and knew that she was a fan of Shaun of the Dead, so that was kind of a start. The first thing we wrote in Hot Fuzz is the kind of the ...

Garret Morris portrayed the Ant Man in an SNL skit during its 2nd season back in 1979 called "Superhero Party".

No obvious connection, but this is actually not unusual. While it seems that Stan Lee has a personal connection to the projects in which he makes a cameo appearance, as enforced by his appearances in the Sony Spider-Man productions, the X-Men Cinematic Universe, and of course the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, he actually has a history of cameo'...

Coldplay's lead singer Chris Martin had two brief cameos in Shaun Of the Dead; one as a zombie; and one as himself, which lasts for about one second by my reckoning.

In Netflix, Stan Lee having cameo as same character in all MCU shows: His Daredevil cameo: His Jessica Jones cameo: His Luke Cage cameo: And in Iron Fist, which you already spotted He just portrayed as a honorable NYPD officer and their marketing face in MCU netflixverse. But remember like all his other Marvel cameos this one is also not to be taken too ...

Because he is a watcher or works for them. Likely Uatu, the watcher that's assigned to watch Earth. Confirmed by Marvel in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Marvel chief Kevin Feige has endorsed the popular fan theory that Stan Lee is playing the same character in all of his MCU roles. http://screenrant.com/stan-lee-mcu-cameo-theory-marvel-kevin-feige/ ...

No official words I can get about it but IMDb claims Malone said this line: Brooklyn Bystander : [looking at a glitched stoplight] I think it's a Banksy. Going through official script, only one Brooklynite have a speaking line and it's same as IMDb and you yourself said he was credited as Brooklyn bystanders. ET Online confirms it: “Post Malone gets ...

Not the shortest, but may be the shortest with a line of dialogue. And it's my fave. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men - First Class. I don't think this falls foul of the stinger rule as it was in the movie itself. There was no guarantee he'd turn up later in the franchise either. WARNING! Swear words!

From this screenrant article: For Deadpool 2, the Stan Lee cameo is more in line with those of the Marvel shows on Netflix than his show-stopping MCU appearances. Indeed, just his famous face appears rather than Stan "The Man" himself. In this case, it isn't a photograph or poster but a graffiti portrait painted on the side of a building; Stan's ...

There really isn't one. The only reason there would be is if SAG had a special "cameo rate", which it doesn't*. Based on the examples I've seen, they're generally: one or two scenes big-name, recognizable actor in an otherwise minor role unexpected - generally not announced in advance, no credit in the opening cards to keep the secret a surprise ...

There's no overarching right answer to this. I think there are a few reasons for it: For starters, it's fun. You've mentioned lots of directors in your question who have done it and it's likely they all got a pretty good kick out of it. Think Hitchcock's many roles or Tarantino in Reservoir Dogs, or Pulp Fiction. There's also a tradition argument. Stan Lee,...

Though this may be a duplicate of Why are some actors uncredited in certain films? I felt it worth adding this point, that some people may not be aware of. Her IMDB page credits her as "Policewoman" - no character name. This is a classic sign that someone is adding their own IMDB credits as an "actor" when in fact all they were was a Supporting Artist... ...

Earliest I can think is of is BBC news reader Kenneth Kendall reading the news in 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968:

Stan Lee is the face of Marvel, and comics in a much larger sense. He's one of the most easily recognizable names of the Golden Age illustrators who are still alive. Given that Stan Lee actually receives nothing from Marvel (that "Executive Producer" credit he's always given is merely a show of respect, but they don't respect him enough to give him a dime ...

No. Scorsese's larger cameo was a last minute substitution caused by the original actor scheduled for the stalker being unavailable. When George Memmoli, the actor who was to play a man stalking his wife who hails a ride with Travis, was injured on another movie, Scorsese agreed to play the part himself. Says Schrader, “I was afraid that Marty would see ...

According to this interview with Edgar Wright, there is indeed one surprise cameo in the film - but as of yet the name has not been revealed. OK - having seen the film, there are a couple of 'guest spots' - but if we are talking uncredited cameos then Pierce Brosnan would have to rank up there ;) Rafe Spall is also in there, but I doubt he ranks as a 'big' ...

Mark Heap from Spaced is in there and I'm pretty sure I saw Julia Deakin too, also from Spaced

According to CNN, Lee said, I hate to admit this, but I do not share in the movie's profits. I just share in the interviews, in the glamour, in the people saying, "Wow, I love that movie, Stan" -- but I'm not a participant in the profits. Also checkout around 6:58 of the video. And his net worth is estimated to be ...

No, there was never a Felix Leiter in the Brosnan era, most likely because of his removal from active service because of his missing leg. The reboot of the franchise with Casine Royale made it possible for Leiter to re-appear.

There was a picture of the TOS cast on a wall in one of the kids' bedroom. I'm pretty sure it was in the "movie within the movie" but I'm not positive. I'll see if I can get a screen shot and attach it to my answer. Nimoy himself, as a live actor, was not in the movie.
