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


Definition from Wikipedia:
Cameo är när en kändis dyker upp i en statistroll, som exempelvis Hitchcocks biroller i hans filmer. Även på svenska används ordet cameo tydligen eftersom gästframträdande oftast betyder att kändisen spelar sig själv.

Example sentence(s):
  • Cameo kallas när en känd person; en skådespelare, regissör, författare, sportpersonlighet, politiker eller liknande, gör en statistroll i en film och bara syns i förbifarten, i bakgrunden av filmen. kan också användas för samma sak i böcker. - Wikipedia

cameoroll


Definition from Susning.nu:
Cameoroll eller bara cameo, sådan roll i film då en känd person, såsom en stor filmstjärna och skådespelare, eller annan del av filmpersonalen, politiker, affärsman eller någon annan kändis, deltar under en kortare sekvens. Ofta gäller det en statistroll eller en pytteliten roll. Alfred Hitchcock hade ofta en mindre roll i sina filmer. Ingmar Bergman var också känd för att göra cameoroller.

Example sentence(s):
  • För att vara pompös har /Ben Kingsley/ visat ett sinne för självironi i en cameoroll i "Sopranos" och som rollfiguren Guru Tugginmypudha i Mike Myers parodiska "The love guru". - Dagens nyheter 07/11/2008  
  • Michael Biehn, som spelade Kyle Reese i första Terminatorfilmen, har avslöjat att han syns i en cameoroll i ”Terminator 3”. - Tellusfilm.com  
  • I denna roman skymtar Atwood personligen i en kort cameoroll: hon har i biografin De röda skorna sagt att det är hon själv som i ett av bokens avslutande kapitel objuden dyker upp på ett party som anonym svartklädd doktorand. Hitchcock skulle säkert inte haft några invändningar. - Bokhyllan - Recension
