Some music videos also contain surprise cameos from celebs.

While some are brief, many have starring roles. Here are 10+ celebrity cameos in famous music videos fans almost missed.

Leonard Nimoy - Bruno Mars (The Lazy Song Official Alternative Version)

It’s hard to picture Leonard Nimoy outside of his iconic Star Trek role as Spock, but the actor managed to ‘Trek’ his way into a Bruno Mars music video.

A half-awake Nimoy is shown retrieving the newspaper with messy hair and his robe.

Megan Fox and Jake Monaghan - Eminem (Love The Way You Lie)

The two actors found themselves playing a couple in a toxic relationship. It perfectly showed the battle of love and hate.

Sadly, this mirrored some of the physical abuse Rihanna endured in her own former relationship with Chris Brown.

Norman Reedus - Lady Gaga (Judas)

As a former model, The Walking Dead actor felt right at home in Lady Gaga’s hit music video.

He represented Gaga’s counterpart Judas in what was a love triangle between Reedus, Gaga, and Coach Carter actor, Rick Gonzalez.

Natalie Dormer - Hozier (Something New)

The Game of Thrones actress thought she found herself a new King in Hozier's “Someone New” music video.

It shows a melancholic Dormer manifesting hope and romance, only to end up alone in the end.

Rupert Grint - Ed Sheeran (Lego House)

At first glance, it looks like Ed Sheeran is starring in his music video for Lego House. But in a magical surprise, it’s actually Harry Potter star, Rupert Grint!

After the final installment of Harry Potter, the ever-so-similar, red-headed Englishmen made the collaboration.

Katie Holmes - Eve 6 (Tongue Tied)

When a young Katie was in-between filming Dawson’s Creek, she found time to be in Eve 6’s “Tongue Tied” music video.

She plays a highschooler in class who is distracted by daydreams about her classroom crush.

Kathy Griffin - Eminem (The Real Slim Shady)

Most people know Eminem's famous lyric, “Will the real Slim Shady, please stand up?”

If not, we're sure Kathy Griffin can remind you of it, as the comedian lip-synced the line in Eminem’s "The Real Slim Shady" music video.

Idris Elba - Mumford & Sons (Lover of the Light)

The English actor is known for his role in HBO’s The Wire and Luther.

But his A-list status didn’t stop him from taking an opportunity to star in a Mumford & Sons music video, which shows him dancing in the street. What can’t this man do?

Zooey Deschanel - The Offspring (She’s Got Issues)

Before the New Girl actress appeared as Katy Perry’s twin in her “Not the End of the World” music video, she appeared in the video for the popular ‘90s alternative band, The Offspring.

Zooey was 19 at the time and sported bright red hair that gave us Fifth Element vibes.

Keanu Reeves - Paula Abdul (Rush, Rush)

If you weren’t born before the ‘90s, there is a good chance you wouldn’t have seen the beloved Keanu Reeves in Paula Abdul's music video.

Taking on a James Dean, Rebel Without a Cause look, Keanu is seen in a red jacket while in competition for Paula's heart.

Charlize Theron - Brandon Flowers (Crossfire)

The gorgeous actress found time between all of her action roles to play a similar role in the action-filled Brandon Flowers “Crossfire” music video.

Theron must have felt at home, wielding a weapon and sending bad guys through windows.

Channing Tatum - P!nk (Beautiful Trauma)

In P!nks “Beautiful Trauma” video, the Magic Mike hunk wasn’t afraid to show off his girly side.

The star was part of a role reversal, going from wearing a snazzy suit to wearing a dress with makeup and a matching bonnet.

Mandy Moore - Good Charlotte (Little Things)

While brief, the video does feature a 17-year-old Mandy Moore.

She played a role similar to her movie roles: a high school “pretty girl” putting on lipstick while snarking at the punk group as they arrived at school.

Brie Larson, Anne Hathaway, and Kristen Stewart - Jenny Lewis (Just One of the Guys)

There was nothing better than seeing this iconic trio of women become like “one of the guys” in the music video.

The women looked like a Euro boyband in matching Adidas jumpsuits, hats, and funny mustaches.

Tyra Banks - Michael Jackson (Black or White)

From model to television personality, Tyra Banks made an iconic appearance in Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” music video.

But, it was a bit unsettling to see a large man morph into the then-18-year-old Tyra.

Ben Stiller - P. Diddy (Bad Boys For Life)

Ben Stiller became a bad boy for life when he starred in the P. Diddy music video.

In it, he plays P. Diddy’s neighbor who asks the rapper to stop shooting golf balls through his window. He also tries to score an invite to his next party.

Mila Kunis - Aerosmith (Jaded)

When Aerosmith released their “Jaded” music video in 2001, fans were surprised to see the That '70s Show actress in a red dress.

It shows Kunis trapped in an old playhouse theatre before exiting a trap door into a peaceful forest.

Scott Eastwood - Taylor Swift (Wildest Dreams)

It’s fitting that Taylor Swift's “Wildest Dreams” video had the dreamy Scott Eastwood.

We’re sure T-Swift and fans weren’t complaining to see the son of the legendary Clint Eastwood sharing a love story screen with the singer.

Jennifer Lopez - Janet Jackson (That’s The Way Love Goes)

Did you know that Jennifer was once a backup dancer for Janet Jackson?

Given that info, it’s no wonder that Lopez decided to show up in Janet’s video to dance again. We need another collab!
