9. LeBron James in Trainwreck.

Universal Pictures

“Honestly, his scenes are the best in the movie. I would 100% watch a buddy flick movie between LeBron James and Dr. Aaron (Bill Hader). I have rewatched this movie a couple of times simply for the LeBron scenes.”

10. Bill Murray in Zombieland.

Sony Pictures Releasing

11. Kelly Ripa in Broad City.

Comedy Central

12. Simon Cowell in Shrek 2.

DreamWorks Pictures

“He was his normal pre-Eric grumpy self, just in animated form.”

13. Keanu Reeves in Always Be My Maybe.

Netflix

“He played himself as this, like, elitist, weirdly bohemian version of himself and his scenes are probably my favourite in the movie.”

scytheanastasia

“The man is hilarious! He makes himself an egotistical caricature that you can’t stop laughing at.”

14. Jessica Biel in BoJack Horseman.

Netflix

“She was so willing to do self-deprecating humour and use her name in a humorous way (‘un Jessica BIEL-evable’). It’s all the more funny considering she’s playing herself as the ex-wife of Mr. Peanutbutter.”

15. Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

HBO

“He is hilarious playing a distorted version of himself and about 1/3 of the characters on that show would also fit this list. It is just so well done.”

yitzyzraven73

“You just know he is almost exactly like that is real life.”

16. Ted Danson in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

HBO

“Especially this last season where he was feuding with Larry!

25. Cher in Will and Grace.

NBC

“Oh! She came up to Jack (who is obsessed with her) and he totally blew her off because he though she was a queen in drag!”
