Remember when a famous dude showing up as himself in a movie was a novelty? Now you’re legally required to add in the random-famous-guy cameo scene to every Judd Apatow-produced script before it can be considered completed in the eyes of the law. AnimalNewYork recently put together a supercut of famous-person cameos in movies just to show you how pervasive a trend this really is. The supercut has 23 cameos, and they didn’t even include Lou Ferrigno in I Love You Man (anything else they missed?). It’s gone so far that in Seth Rogen’s new movie, everyone‘s playing themselves. Pretty soon, movies will just be celebrities playing us pretending to be them and everything will be a sequel to The Human Centipede.

Full list of cameos included after the jump:

1. John Malkovich- Being John Malkovich
2. David Hasselhoff- Sponge Bob Square Pants
