Today we'll take a look at 40 cameo appearances by people who aren't actors…well, until they made a cameo. Now that they have IMDb credits, who are we to call them “not actors”? Do we think Katy Perry is going to win an Oscar any time soon for her acting? No. But we also didn't give Lady Gaga enough credit before A Star Is Born, so prove us wrong.
