Let's face it: Extras are mainly used by filmmakers because cardboard cutouts are easier to knock over. But thanks to the advent of the Internet, it turns out extras are doing a lot more than just filling space, often times even stealing the scene.

These day players may not be the marquee names in the credits, but they're going to make damn sure they make their mark. Or, in one super unfortunate case, maybe get kicked in the nuts by a literal goddamn horse while the cameras were rolling. We asked our readers to provide some of the weirder things they've done.
