Eight of the best unexpected and hilarious cameos from comedy movies.Eight of the best unexpected and hilarious cameos from comedy movies.

Of all the cameos on this list the Vonnegut one has to be my favorite. I have trouble reading (correction - starting) any of his novels without first flashing to this scene. '...and another thing, Vonnegut! I'm gonna stop payment on that check! Hey Kurt, can you read lips?'

Cartoons reimagined in the real world through the realistic eye of Photoshop.Cartoons reimagined in the real world through the realistic eye of Photoshop.
