Jose Ferrer in Lawrence of Arabia. Honorable mention to the guard who beat Lawrence, and the guard who held his wrists to keep him stretched out.

I love this scene from A Bridge Too Far. The actor is Christopher Good.

I was always partial to the knight from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Particularly the you chose poorly / you chose wisely lines. Use them both as punchlines pretty frequently.

Reminded me of Matt Damon in Euro Trip. "Scotty doesn't know!"

Gary Oldman's and Chris Walken's characters in True Romance are only on the screen for a couple of minutes but they are the most memorable scenes of the film.

Billy Bob Thornton's minute or two in Tombstone is fantastic. "It's like I'm playing cards with my brother's kids."

I liked Jason Isaacs as Cpt. Steele in Black Hawk Down.

The Coens really do use a lot of these. Does John Goodman count in Oh Brother Whereart Thou? Jesus in Lebowski? Shep in Fargo?

If I may, Clint Howard.

While he gets his face in a lot of movies/shows because of Ronnie and is a Major/minor, I still like the "surprise" when he shows up.

I think he actually had four scenes, but with less than ten minutes of screentime, Michael Lonsdale gave "Ronin" its title.

Chuck Norris, as himself, "Dodgeball, A True Underdog Story."

The girl on the Honda Street Scrambler in " Vanishing Point", because my first motorcycle was a red/white 1970 Honda CL175K4.

his role in Bladerunner was awesome,

While I hated the movie Captain Marvel, Stan Lee playing himself rehearsing lines to play himself in the movie Mallrats was pretty hilarious.

Honorable Mention to Dwight Yoakam's Doyle, a fantastically executed piece of shit caught on film.
