Default Interesting appearences in Music Vids

I dont see much about this and had an idea. I am curios to see how many celebritys have done cameo's or appearences in music videos and see some of your favorites. My favorite (as of yet) is... Bruce Willis in the Stylo video by The Gorillaz. James Van Der Beek in Ke$ha-Blow was amusing as well... Lets see some of your favs!

"Stylo" is a great video (and song). Arnold Schwarzenegger in the video for "You Could Be Mine" by Guns N' Roses is one of my favorites. Also, Rodney Dangerfield's appearance in the video for Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling" is pretty good (but the song itself isn't, uggh). Christopher Llloyd does his Back to the Future character very well in the video for "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News - the video would be very mediocre without him.

In Kate Bush's "Cloudbusting" music video, Donald Sutherland does great dramatic acting work. I don't know if there is a similar serious performance by a major actor in any other video.

Also, there's the memorable character G.W. Bailey plays in the video for Richard Marx's "Don't Mean Nothing."

Weapon of Choice!



Actually enjoy the track, but I think at least a part of that enjoyment is the video or memory of the video.

Christopher Walken does a beautiful illusion turn in that video too. Haha.

Also like Robert Downey Jr. in Elton John's "I Want Love."

I messed up with my Sutherland comment, for I'd been thinking of Walken not in "Weapon of Choice," but earlier in Madonna's "Bad Girl" video. That's a serious, well-played role.

Eric Roberts got a career boost from the rogue he plays in "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers. He even recently reprised the role in a video for the band.

Of videos from the past 2 years, I'd say Jennifer Lopez's ride-along appearance in "Becky from the Block" is one of the most amusing.

Courtney Cox wasn't famous then.

I just remembered Michael Madsen in the video for "As Long as You Love," with Justin Bieber. Usually I don't like graphic violence, but both people are basically playing themselves and getting the negativity they deserve.
