Lifelounge guide to actor cameos in music videos

Lifelounge guide to actor cameos in music videos

Chevy Chase
Christopher Walken
Djimon Hounsou
Donald Sutherland
Eddie Murphy
Keanu Reeves
Robin Williams
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Scarlett Johansson
Stephen Dorff
From Keanu to Buffy, everybody who knows anything about something knows that appearing in an artist's video can be a big cred boost. (Unless it's somebody rubbish like Nickelback.) Here are some of Lifelounge's favourite actor cameos in music videos.

Keanu Reeves 'Rush, Rush' by Paula Abdul

It's kind of sad/odd that these two ended up a meme and the other a drunky-drunk American Idol judge. We have faith in a comeback for each though. (Well, maybe just Keanu.)

Scarlett Johansson in 'What Goes Around' by Justin Timberlake

After JT's *revenge* video 'Cry me a River' with the Britney lookalike, you'd think he was done. But then he launched a billion rumours that he was boning Johansson with the video that alluded to their relay-lay and orgies.

Donald Sutherland in 'Cloudbusting' by Kate Bush
This is one dignified gent, right?

Sarah Michelle Gellar in 'Sour Girl' by Stone Temple Pilots
Creepy creatures, some twisty dance moves and a gothic Sarah Michelle Geller reprising her role as Kathryn Merteuil from Cruel Intentions. Not really.

Robin Williams in 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' by Bobby McFerrin
If anybody says Bobby McFerrin killed himself, please tell them that hoax is approximately 20 years old now.

Eddie Murphy (and Shaquille O'Neal, Iman and Magic Johnson) in 'Remember The Time' by Michael Jackson

Eddie Murphy did a lot of pointing and staring that was overshadowed by MJ's dancing and a lot of fabulous costumes. I bet you remember.

Djimon Hounsou in 'Love Will Never Do (Without You)' by Janet Jackson
Apart from having the very handsome Blood Diamond actor in it, this video has the pro that it's possible Janet Jackson's greatest song ever forever.

Chevy Chase in 'Call me Al' by Paul Simon

Hands up who it was who said they were convinced that Chevy Chase was actually Art Garfunkel and this was a real duet? SOMEBODY TOLD ME THAT.

Stephen Dorff in 'Everytime' by Britney Spears
He is such a dashing, short man. Then he went and got nasty with Pamela Anderson. Also, note: this is when Britney was way into Kabbalah. Good times.

Christopher Walken in 'Weapon of Choice' by Fatboy Slim
Who knew he could move like that?

Emily Browning was in the Evermore clip for Lights Surrounding You. She doesn't really do much but she's in it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVMDqyR0Xq4
