Quentin Tarantino shows up in Pulp Fiction. Is that a cameo or a role?
Can I change the question?
Shaq suits up for the Cavs, is that a cameo or a role?
It's a cameo.
I argue that its a cameo. A cameo bc it's the director and he's featured in that one scene.
My gf argues that it's a role bc he has a name and he moves the story along. Its getting pretty heated. Help me out NT
And I'd say it's both. Cameos are sometimes non-speaking roles, or they can also be brief roles with speaking and acting. It's probably a role morein this instance since he's there for an entire scene and plays a fairly pivotal part of that story.
A better example of a cameo in Pulp Fiction is Steve Buscemi played the Buddy Holly impersonator/waiter at Jack Rabbit Slims.
i say role, just like kevin smith in all his movies
ben affleck in clerks 2 -> cameo
I think cameos as more of a wink-nudge kind of thing. Like "hey it's that guy that I kinda expected anyway"
they really don't add anything to the story
I agree with what your girl says about a role having some sort of point to the story
It's a role. He shows up in the credits as a cast member.
^that's a big clue right there
I'll also say role b/c a cameo to me is a brief appearance rather than a named character that's important to the plot.
I also think Tarantino's over-acting is hilarious and entertaining. "Don't Jimmy me, Juuuules"
btw Quick top 3:
1) Reservoir Dogs
2) True Romance (I count it)
3) Pulp Fiction
Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction = role
Samuel L Jackson in Kill Bill Vol 2 = cameo
cameos are also called cameo roles soo......
What about Samuel L. Jackson in True Romance?
^def cameo wasn't he some unnamed pimp/goon at Gary Oldman's place?
role, cameos add nothing to the movie except a "oh cool, thats ______ ______"
never knew that.
Yeah, that's what I figured. Nice name btw
i'd say role, he's one of the major characters in the last story
i say role..
directors can have roles too, just like clint eastwood in grand torino..
cameo, is more of like, adam sandler in a rob shnieder film..
