With only a mere two weeks (and two days, but who's counting?) until the premiere of the highly anticipated Suicide Squad, I felt the need to investigate to see what unexpected cameos we might spot in the film. You know, that moment where you go, "Hey, that's that one guy. He's in stuff."
Well, you'll be seeing a lot of that in the upcoming DC film. We've already unearthed some surprising Easter Eggs, and the cast is full of A-listers such as Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, but what about the cast that sometimes blend a little in the background? Will there be anyone we recognize?
Yes, yes there will.
5. Akinnuoye-Agbaje — Waylon Jones / Killer Croc
Akinnuoye-Agbaje has more of an actual role than a cameo, but do you recognize him? Agbaje played Mr. Eko on the infamous television series, Lost. What's more, he played the villainous role of Algrim / Kurse in Thor: The Dark World. However, there is one more underrated film that I bet you've seen him in.
Remember when he played this guy in The Mummy Returns? Lock-Nah was the second most terrifying character in the whole series (after the Mummy himself, of course). He'll project his intimidating appearance in Suicide Squad as he takes on the role of Waylon Jones a.k.a. Killer Croc.
4. Kenneth Choi — Yakuza Boss
Who could forget Chester Ming from Wolf of Wall Street? That was Mr. Kenneth Choi. He works again with Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad as the Yakuza Boss. Before this DC role, he was a devoted addition to the Marvel films. In Captain America: The First Avenger he played Jim Morita, a soldier in the Howling Commandos in World War II.
Choi will actually be returning to the MCU in Spider-Man: Homecoming, acting as Peter Parker's principal.
3. Alex Meraz — Uncredited
Doesn't he look familiar? That's because Alex Meraz played the friendly neighborhood werewolf, Paul, in Twilight series. *Paul Lahote is a Quileute shape-shifter and the third-in-command of the Uley pack. As one of Jacob Black's best friends, he's appalled by Jacob's romantic interest with Bella and angrily transforms into a werewolf.
IMDb has an uncredited mention on Meraz in the new DC film, but keep an eye out for him in his human form.
2. Hugh Scott — American Hostage
Hugh Scott's first notable role (that you may not recall) is the "New Clerk" in the horror film Prom Night (starring Brittany Snow). If I recall correctly, he's the mastermind behind letting the prom teenager's crazed, obsessed teacher into her hotel room. Silly, Scott.
Other than that, Scott made a minor appearance in the new Deadpool film. He plays David Cunningham. According to Looper, this minor appearance means more than most fans realize.
Though never named specifically, Deadpool's red-eyed pal during his ongoing torture was named David Cunningham, also known as Worm.
In the comics, Worm has cybernetic implants that, essentially, make him incredibly smart as he's able to access and process an abnormal amount of information. Perhaps we'll see more of Scott in the future.
1. Mark Falvo — Firefighter
This one may be hard to find, but Mark Falvo has some deep roots in comic cinemas. He played a "Football Fan" in The Dark Knight Rises and a S.H.I.E.L.D Agent in The Avengers. Falvo will make an appearance in Suicide Squad as a firefighter. You can also spot him as a reporter in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. MCU Wikia states that this makes him one of the few actors to date to have appeared in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe.
Who wants to bet Falvo will make a cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming?
