Some actors have perfected the art of making a cameo. They can drop in and blow your mind in five minutes or less and still make it home in time for dinner.

Whether they were a zombie, telling you how to sell insurance, or judging a Zoolander walk-off, we're pretty sure you'll remember these scenes. 

When you're starring in a film, you've got two hours to shine and deliver a memorable performance.

After reading this list, you'll be the go to guy or gal for definitive film cameo knowledge.

David Bowie has done eeeeeeverything. From reinvigorating rock music in the '70s, to turning into a hawk on Adult Swim's The Venture Brothers, there's nothing he hasn't done. He even had time to judge a walk-off between Ben Stiller's Zoolander and Owen Wilson's Hansel in the 2001 cult hit Zoolander.

Even when Cate Blanchett is covered in a clean suit and a face mask, she's still one of the most beautiful women in the world. She can even make safety glasses look sexy.

Michael Jackson is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list 46 Tiny Movie Cameos by Super Famous People

In all seriousness, Michael Jackson's cameo in Men In Black 2 isn't a cameo, so much as it's an admittance of his birth on another planet. You don't write a song like "Rock With You" without being from Mars.

Bill Murray is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list 46 Tiny Movie Cameos by Super Famous People

To say that this cameo was a surprise would be the understatement of the century. Bill Murray shows up, out of nowhere, in the middle of the film, and absolutely floored the audience. And he FINALLY answered our burning question about those damn Garfield movies. We always knew it was for the cash.
