Stephen King cameo?

    I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Stephen King had an anonymous cameo in Silver Bullet, playing one of the werewolves/parishioners in the dream sequence.

    Am I right?

    Would have to ask as that was before my time but maybe someone else has an answer for you.

    If you go to 1:08 (by my timer) there is a lone wolf with his hands on the back of the pew in front of him sort of swaying back and forth -- that kind looks like stephen, but I'm sure I'm just seeing him in there by the power of suggestion.

    I just ordered the blu-ray from Umbrella. If he was in it, then it should be mentioned in the commentary or one of the extras, but I think not.
    I wonder if he did the cameo in Knightriders and the role in Creepshow mostly because Romero asked him, and since Romero must have been a hero to him he obliged.

    Since he wrote Cat's Eye and Silver Bullet himself, you would kind of expect to see him in it. But it's only from Maximum Overdrive that he starts doing them more regularly.

    Mr. Cranky The Roosters are Number 1.

    Corey Haim played that part fantastic in this movie and he was fantastic in Lost Boys. I watched the movie about a month ago and King wasn't in it because King plays himself generally, albeit he dresses up for the part like a pharmacist or a bus driver etc. King's best acting, in my opinion was in Golden Years where he is a grumpy bus driver.

    Jordy Verrill in Creepshow is my favourite of his appearances, but it is a complete role, not a cameo, of course.

    I think the one in Knightriders is quite funny, but the funniest is probably in Maximum Overdrive. I wonder though why he put his cameo in that right at the beginning. Perhaps it was in the spirit of an anthology film where a writer or narrator introduces the story? I think it sets the tone of the film to comedic rather than scary right from the start.

    He does the same thing with his glasses, lifting the sunglasses, as in the Golden Years cameo.
