It takes talent to do an impression of a well-known public figure, but it is almost on another level to use that skill on one's self. In these cases, actors have opted to make themselves the focal point of mockery by playing exaggerated and somewhat distorted versions of themselves for the sake of hilarity.
From Bill Murray's short cameo in Zombieland to John Malkovich's leading role as a human puppet in Being John Malkovich, here are a few examples of times an actor sacrificed their self-esteem and played a ridiculous version of themselves for the sake of art.
