Sequel Reprise

Burt Reynolds briefly reprises his role as The Bandit in SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT PART III (1983).

The film was originally entitled SMOKEY IS THE BANDIT, with Jackie Gleason playing both Sheriff Buford T. Justice and the Bandit. According to the legend, test audiences reacted poorly, finding Gleason’s two roles confusing, and so the Bandit scenes were re-shot with Jerry Reed playing the role.

At the end of the film, Buford finds Cledus and begins to apprehend him, but Buford then imagines Cledus to be the “Real” Bandit (Reynolds cameo appearance) who sweet talks him to letting him go and starting a new pursuit.

Charlie Sheen reprises his character of Bud Fox, briefly running into Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) in WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS (2010).

XMEN_First Class

In X-MEN: FIRST CLASS (2011), Hugh Jackman reprises his role as James “Logan” Howlett / Wolverine in an uncredited cameo in a bar, dismissing an approach by Xavier and Lensherr to join them. Jackman said he accepted the offer to appear because “it sounded perfect to me”, particularly for Wolverine being the only character with a swear word. The cameo took about eight takes during a two-hour shoot on the Fox Studios lot in Los Angeles and the actor changed his line in an ad-lib from “fuck off” to “go fuck yourself”

Just like Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine, Rebecca Romijn makes a cameo appearance as well in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS (2011), The model turned actress played Mystique in the previous X-MEN movies. In the 2011 prequel, she was portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence.

However, in a scene with Erik Lehnsherr (before he became Magneto), Rebecca Romijn appears as the “older” Raven and the blue Mystique we came to know in the previous movies when she was told by Erik he prefers the “older and true” Raven.

Ving Rhames very briefly reappears in a uncredited cameo as Luther Stickell, Etan Hunt’s colleague at the end of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL (2011). Rhames character has the distinction of appearing in all four MISSION IMPOSSIBLE films along with Tom Crusie. It has been reported that he received $7.7 million for his 3 minutes of screen time, but that maybe due to his contract stipulating a minimum salary when appearing in the 4th film


In MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL (2011), an uncredited Michelle Monaghan reprises her role as Julia Meade, Etan Hunt’s wife. Monaghan character married Hunt in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III, but a failed assassination attempt between parts 3 & 4 forces her into hiding in Seattle.
