This may not come as a shock to people aware of his work, but Eli Roth has spent nearly as much time in front of the camera as behind it. After cameo appearances in two Troma films, Terror Firmer and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV, Roth played a hitchhiker character named Justin in his feature directing debut, Cabin Fever. Three years later, Justin returned in tim Sullivan’s 2001 Maniacs:
He popped up in The United Monster Talent Agency along with Frank Darabont and a few other famous faces, then played small but important roles in Jon Watts’ Clown and director Fruit Chan’s Don’t Look Up:
He had smarmy cameos like the wet t-shirt contest host in Piranha 3D and the band manager in Rock of Ages.
He even wrote himself a sizable role in the natural disaster thriller Aftershock:
He will perhaps be most well-known on-screen for his roles in two Quentin Tarantino movies. Death Proof…
…and Inglourious Basterds:
However, I like to think that his best work was as the man who was killed on the toilet in Richard Kelly’s mind-bending Southland Tales.
