King, Stephen Easter Egg - Stephen King in All of His Movies?

Stephen King has a habit of appearing as an actor, usually a very small part, in every movie that he creates. I have personally seen him in Maximum Overdrive, Pet Cemetary and a few others. Check it out, look hard, he is there.

Stephen King was in sleep-walkers, he was in the scene where the policeman who got stabbed in the ear had the police etc coming to take away the body also in the same scene with him was another great horror writer none other than Clive Barker.

The mini-series doesn't come close to having the macabre menace of the original...and Nicholson was chilling, while Weber was a cold fish

He played the priest conducting Gage's funeral in "Pet Cemetary". And, in the first "Creepshow" movie, his oldest son played the little boy with the voodoo doll.

Stephen King is in Langoliers.. He is cast as Tom Holby.. Boss of the Creepylooking and obnoxious businessman who had squandered away 8 million dollars (Craig Toomey). In the Stand he's Teddy Weizak (The Guy who gives Nadine a lift,and also who's the Guard that spots Tom and Stu's driving in that Snowmobile)

He played Tommy Weizak in 'the stand' and I'm pretty sure he was also in 'the shapeshifters'

If I'm not mistaken, I don't think he was in "Apt Pupil" either. By the way, the remake of "The Shining" may not have the "macabre menace" of the original, but it stays true to the book, whereas the original (in my opinion) just took the plot and left out the details that truly made the story. Although, I will admit that the acting left a lot to be desired. Anyway, the remake holds the honor of being the only movie to ever make me shriek out loud.

To Highhat, the movies you listed were not movies that Stephen King directed, they were merely movies based on his stories. Frank Darabont, for instance, directed both "Shawshank" and "The Green Mile." I'm not sure about "Stand By Me" or "Pet Semetary", but the "Creepshow" movies and "Maximum Overdrive" were King movies.

I believe King has had a role in every movie he directed, and he does act in a couple of movies that he did not actually direct. Also, if by "the farmer" you mean the farmer and wife who take in Charlie and her dad then King was not the farmer. The farmer is way to old to be King.

The Creepshow movies were NOT directed by Stephen King. He wrote the screenplay for the first one and the only involvement he had in the second one was one of the segments was based on one of his stories (The Raft) and he had a cameo. That's it.

This isn't true of all movies based on his creations. Three that come to mind right of the bat are The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me.

A friend of mine came into work gnawing on this bone about Stephen King and his movies... He claims that King did show up in Stand BY Me as one of the policemen that collect the body at the end of the movie.. I haven't been able to verify it yet, but it wouldn't surprise me. He said you have to look real hard because it's just for a second. I'm trying to find out if he's in the Green Mile...

And he played a Polish guy in 'The Stand'. I think his name was Bobby or Tommy, maybe something similar. He features in the end mainly, when his character is on 'border patrol' with another man and they see the main character and Tom Cullen coming towards them in the snow plough.

Stephen also had a bit part in his ABC mini-series "Storm of the Century". Look for him as a lawyer in Part Two. (personal injury lawyer, I believe)

Stephen King appearing in his movies is not unique. I believe he actually borrowed this tactic from Alfred Hitchcock who would appear in his own movies, too.

Sorry QuestionQueen, Stephen King was certainly NOT in IT. I can't even think of a scene (in the movie) with a bartender. You're mistaken. By the way, King typically only cameos in movies for which he's written the screenplay, so there are LOTS where he doesn't, IT included.

Stephen King had two parts in Kingdom Hospital. He was the lawyer in the commercial on the television in the janitors office and of course the janitor Johnny B. Goode.

He's only in the movies he writes the scripts for. Maximum Overdrive as his only shot at directing (notice most of the acting sucks? His fault) so this shouldn't be included in the directors portion...
