English term or phrase: cameo role
Definition from The Documentary Site:
A brief but memorable role that usually appears in only a few scenes and with few speaking lines. Prominent actors are typically cast in these parts.

Example sentence(s):
  • For whatever reason, be it a deep-seated desire to act, a lack of a casting budget, or just “if you want something done right, do it yourself”, many directors at some point in their careers have stepped out from behind the camera to act. This is typically in a smaller, cameo role, and often with varying degrees of success: sometimes they’re completely natural and sometimes they bring the film to a screeching halt. And sometimes you’d never even know they were there. Cineleet
  • "Arnold Schwarzenegger will be invited to take a cameo role in a fourth Terminator movie. Producers want the Governor of California to make an appearance in the film. Terminator files
  • Julie played a cameo role in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), playing Madame Rosmerta. BBC Home

cameo uloga (nastup)

Definition from Wikipedia:
Cameo uloga ili cameo nastup (često u skraćenom obliku samo cameo) je vrsta kratkog nastupa neke poznate ličnosti u filmovima, video-igrama, predstavama ili na TV-u. Obično su to sami režiseri, sportisti, političari ili drugi poznati glumci. U većini slučajeva njihovi nastupi u tim sporednim ulogama nisu navedeni.

Example sentence(s):
  • Film Mikea Todda, Put oko svijeta u 80 dana (1956.) bio je pun cameo nastupa (John Gielgud kao engleski batler, Frank Sinatra svira klavir u salonu) te je predstavio pojam izvan kazališne profesije. Zanimljivo, i filmska verzija iz 2004., redatelja Franka Caracija, također je puna cameo nastupa. - Wikipedia
