Just started the third series of Norsemen on Netflix (brilliant, btw) and noticed that in the first episode none other than our very own Edd China of wheeler dealers fame pops up as a dining viking in a panning shot. Who else unexpectedly has made an appearance in random things?

Too big to be a cameo, but I always find it completely disorienting what a prominent role Trigger has in Fiddler on the Roof.  He pulls very few faces, though.

he's done a few tongue-in-cheek voiceover things but Werner Herzog in Rick and Morty really threw me off the first time I saw it

Ha, that really is an odd one, I'm a huge fan of Cohen's but had no idea he did that.

That's just bizarre, and also the doctor's response is fucking awful, she clearly has a serious mental issue and needs a hell of a lot of help.

The one that sticks in my mind (used to catch it over my mum's shoulder) is a man being talked out of putting his head in the oven and his wife saying 'you silly sausage'

Not really a cameo and I know he was (is?) an actor but the incongruity of seeing Christopher Biggins as Nero in I Claudius took some getting used to.

He turned up as an Eastern European hitman in an episode of The Professionals as well, which was bizarre. It was virtually a cameo too as he was only in the last 5 minutes before he gets killed.

To be fair, Trigger Lloyd Pack was an accomplished actor outside of 'doing a face when Del-Boy fell through the bar'.

Did some Shakespeare and everything.

His politics were good too.

Probably mean not a lot to most of you, but being a huge fan, seeing the late bard of Dundee Michael Marra's lovely turn in High Times was a hat fucker for me, Clive. Wish he'd done more acting, he was class. https://youtu.be/SJxO3XnvYmo?list=PL5o0pAhkIhBdA0fVFHFGNrij2oapdCq19&t=917

Robert Duvall's weird speechless five second cameo as a hatchet faced priest sat on a swing right at the beginning of the 70s Phillip Kaufman remake of 'Invasion Of The Body Snatchers'. Really helps set the uncanny waking nightmare atmosphere of what follows. Love that film so much.

He was in The Naked Civil Servant too.
