One of the best parts about going to the movies is when you are surprised by a cameo from an unexpected A-list actor.
Sometimes you may not recognize them if they are wearing a full mask or helmet. A couple of good examples would be from one of the last Star Wars movies. Daniel Craig (the current James Bond) as a Stormtrooper and Simon Pegg (Scotty in the new Star Trek movies) as the owner of a junkyard in “The Force Awakens." Both uncredited in the film and fully concealed in their costumes.
In other cameos, it’s much easier to pick them out.
