Cameos seem to be all the craze now thanks to films like The Hangover and Zombieland. Two pretty cool cameos have been announced.
First, it is being reported that Brad Pitt has filmed a brief cameo in the film that Angelina Jolie wrote and is currently directing. The film is an untitled romance set during the Bosnian War. Shooting is currently underway with stars Zana Marjanovic and Rade Šerbedžija.
A Hungarian news agency is reporting that Pitt's scene was filmed by the second-unit this past Saturday. Supposedly the scene will feature his character trying to escape a military facility through a curtain of sniper fire. The image below only shows Pitt in his street clothes and not in character.
Secondly, TMZ has reported that Bill Clinton has flown to Thailand and he filmed a cameo with the cast and crew of The Hangover 2. Supposedly, President Clinton will appear in a a scene with Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper.
The big question is do you think cameos add or detract from a film. I am a believer that for comedies, cameos are a great addition. I worry for dramas and other films that cameos can detract from the story.
What are your thoughts?
