Matt Damon isn’t hurting for a little role here and there.

Since breaking through to superstardom with “Good Will Hunting,” the 1997 love letter to Boston that he wrote and starred in with his friend Ben Afflect, Damon has starred in hit films like “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “The Departed,” and the “Bourne” series, just to name a few.

But over the years, the Academy Award- and Emmy-winning actor has made countless appearances in films that many people may not even be aware that he’s in. His very first professional acting debut was a cameo of sorts -- a single line of dialogue in the Julia Roberts’ 1988 film "Mystic Pizza."

To celebrate Damon -- whose birthday is Oct. 8 -- these are some of the most unexpected cameos throughout his career.
