An extra in the movie adaptation of your life

Description: Pavement put it often feels a bit sad, or a bit cheap, but then again if you're making the film of someone's life and they're still around, it's a little rude not to put them in.

Erin Brockovich (2000)
  The real Erin Brockovich has a two-second appearance as a diner waitress near the beginning of the film.
24 Hour Party People (2002)
  It's a meta meta world. Tony Wilson makes a couple of appearances to comment on this movie about his life, including one in a scene where star Steve Coogan runs through all of the cameos of people whose lives are portrayed in the film. Whew.
Europa Europa (1991)
  The real Salomon Perel is the final image in this film.
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002)
  Chuck Barris plays his present day self, hopefully in better shape in real life.
What's Love Got to Do With It? (1993)
  Angela Bassett is so good it's almost a disappointment when the real Tina Turner takes over at the end,
Apollo 13 (1995)
  Jim and Marilyn Lovell both have cameos, Jim as an Iwo-Jima captain and Marilyn as an observer at the launch.
Blow (2001)
  George Jung's daughter Kristina played a clerk in scenes that didn't make it to the final cut, though frankly if I were being played by Jaime King I wouldn't want to be in the movie either. A little unnecessary, yes?
Catch Me If You Can (2002)
  You can see the real Frank Abagnale Jr. as one of the French policeman in the scene taking place in, well, France.
Dead Man Walking (1995)
  The real Sister Prejean has an unlisted cameo as a member of the vigil.
Fever Pitch (1997)
  The film is a kind of oblique take on Nick Hornby's book, which is autobiographical. Hornby plays an Arsenal fan in the April 15, 1989 match scene.
The Basketball Diaries (1995)
  Leo plays Jim Carroll, while Jim Carroll plays Frankie Pinewater (again with the AKrizman).
American Splendor (2003)
  Harvey Pekar in essence became famous for his running commentary on life, so it seems more than fitting that he be present providing commentary on this amazing film about his life.
