I turned on my TV the other day and catch the final seconds of a Frasier rerun just as the credits start rolling. I’m about to change the channel when a familiar name pops up, seeming out of place for Frasier: “Stephen King”. “Whoa,” I think, “Stephen King on Frasier, this I have to see.” Turns out Stephen King had the smallest of roles on the episode, as a guy calling in to Frasier’s show.
I knew he’d appeared in a few movies and tv shows made after his books, and a search on IMDB reveals a total of 21 actor credits.
Here are my 5 favorite Stephen King appearances.
1. Mr. King as Brian, at the very end of this Fraiser clip.
2. As a diner patron wanting more coffee on an episode of Under the Dome
3. As a minister in Pet Sematary
4. As “Bachman” in Sons of Anarchy
He gets rid of a body while listening to 80’s music. King fans will recognize the character’s name ;)
5. Finally, a three-for-one deal, as he appears alongside Tobe Hooper and Clive Barker in Sleepwalkers.
Know of any other Stephen King cameos?
