Sam Raimi always had the personality of a performer. Back when he was making amateur films with childhood friends Bruce Campbell and Scott Spiegel, Raimi appeared in them as well.

…one of a series of famous faces dying in Scott Spiegel’s Intruder…
…the one-two punch of Coen Brothers films as a snide gunman in Miller’s Crossing…
… and a silhouetted pitch man in The Hudsucker Proxy…
…or two appearances for the ever-present John Landis in Innocent Blood…
…and Spies Like Us.
