21 Best Athlete Movie Cameos of All Time

athlete movie cameos

Athletes tend to make terrible actors. Sure, there are a few who’ve managed to become legitimately successful in Hollywood—like Jason Lee, or Terry Crews—but they are the exceptions. For the most part, if you get paid to play sports but you also want to be in movies, you’re going to have to settle for athlete movie cameos.

That’s not as bad as it sounds, though. When judiciously deployed, athlete cameos can steal scenes, or even entire movies. And to prove it, I’ve put together this list of the 21 best athlete movie cameos…that I could think of…or find on the internet.

Are they literally the 21 best athlete movie cameos of all time? Probably not. But that’s a better title than “21 Athlete Movie Cameos That Mostly Pretty Good,” and I’m sticking with it. So stop worrying about the wording and just enjoy the list. It’s damn funny.
