Top 100 Stars in Cameo Roles at the Domestic Box Office
See also: Top Cameo Stars at the Worldwide Box Office
Note: This chart is not adjusted for inflation. The figures represent the total amount of domestic (US+Canada) revenue generated by all the movies a person has had a cameo role in over their lifetime. Roles in animated movies and other voice-only roles are included in the calculations in this chart.
A cameo is a small role performed by a well-known actor or director, often limited to a single scene, with the casting done specifically because of who they are, not because of their acting talents. Examples of cameos are Alfred Hitchcock's appearances in his films and Stan Lee's brief appearances in Marvel films. Note that small parts played by actors before they became famous are not cameos. Rather, they are either supporting roles or roles as an "extra."
