nice list, however as with all these 'top 50' type list features that Empire does, I wish they'd include a page that just summarizes the list, as scrolling through every individual page takes ages.

This list immediately made me think of Julia Roberts in Ocean's Twelve... whose character Tess has to impersonate the famous actress Julia Roberts to fool the 'real-life' Bruce Willis??? Urgh.

I'm sure everyone involved thought this was awfully funny, clever and meta... but it's the self-satisfied straw that breaks this lame camel-of-a-film's back.

No love for Kurt Vonnegut in Back to School? Which also sets up for a great call back joke

Brilliant list, but you just have to have forgotten these 2 amazing playing themselves examples.

1. Tom Jones as Tom Jones: Saviour of the Universe in Mars Attacks.
He helps save the world from Ack-Acks and then is first in the queue in the repopulating of the planet. Plus he is at one with nature. Amaze-balls! But the Voice is NOT a fan of Slim Whitman.

2. James Brown as unlucky but slightly creepy James Brown in The Tuxedo.
The Godfather of Soul is in his dressing room when stumbled upon by Jackie Chan and Jennifer Love Hewitt. He initially is very generous and polite, offering the mis-matched couple front row seats but immediately follows it up by "complementing" Miss Love Hewitt on her "Nice Rack". Jackie then accidentally side swipes him and knocks him out cold (sweat).

I loved seeing "future Tom Petty" in The Postman, particularly when Kevin Costner's character asks him "Weren't you famous once?"... Nice joke.

Seriously Julia Roberts in Oceans Twelve doesn't get a mention...
That was brilliant and I don't think anyone saw that coming.

Johnny Depp in L.A. Without A Map?? Dull film but the combination of David Tennant and Johnny Depp onscreen is just too awesome to be ignored.

You should have put film critic Leonard Maltin on this list. His appearance in Gremlins 2, reviewing Gremlins as the Gremlins themselves take issue it it, was inspired.

Unless you were worried the Gremlins might come after you next.....

Did I miss Mel Brooks' 'Silent Movie' in the compilation? Surely you can't ignore a film that features Burt Reynolds, James Caan, Liza Minelli, Anne Bancroft, Paul Newman and Marcel Marceau all playing themselves? Newman is my favourite, but the Marceau gag is the most memorable.
