Cameos arefun little treats for us here atCracked, yet we gotta say it: our guilty pleasures are cameos that haveaged badly. Seriously, there is nothing quite like a cameo that presents itself as awesome and fun, but actually comes off as eerie. And something similar can also happen with guest appearances: Sometimes they go down in history as creepy or cringe-worthy just because of the later history of the guest star. Indeed, like Robert Blake playing a scary “Mystery Man” in David Lynch’s Lost Highway a few years before he was accused of murdering his wife, real life can retroactively make art truly unnerving. In this Pictofact, then, we take a brief look at 20 cases of cameos and appearances that now make us go yikes—but hey, be also on the lookout for the cases in which the cameo has come after that which makes it yikes-y.
