10 Tiny Matt Damon Roles That Prove He's The King Of Cameos

10. Thor: Ragnarok

Marvel Studios

Thor: Ragnarok got everyone talking about the wild cameos throughout. Some were from Taika Waititi's long-time collaborators like Rachel House and of course, there was the reliable appearance of Stan Lee too. But there was one scene that had not one, not two but three surprise appearances.

An early scene includes a play recounting the plot of Thor: The Dark World. Playing Thor is Luke Hemsworth, Chris Hemsworth's brother while playing Odin is Sam Neill, who Waititi knows through Hunt for the Wilderpeople. And as Loki is Matt Damon.

Producer Kevin Feige recounted his surprise at Damon agreeing to do the cameo. According to him, they were struggling to find a suitable cameo and Chris Hemsworth suggested Damon. Feige was dubious, but Damon hopped on a plane to the set and the rest is history.

I'm based in the UK, looking to make a career out of writing about entertainment and culture. The only thing I like as much as watching films, playing games or listening to music is enjoying as much hummus and crisps as I can while I do so. My favourite film is Eddie the Eagle and I like any game that lets me wander around beautiful worlds (or eat hummus and crisps).
