* [[Series/That70sShow Jim]] [[Series/{{Reno 911}} Rash's]] character in ''Film/SkyHigh''. We first see him as the love interest's father; he has two lines and then disappears. When he next shows up, it's in the climactic school dance scene, and if the viewer notices him at all (unlikely, as he's in the background and the viewer is probably looking at Creator/KurtRussell), they will probably assume he is just chaperoning his daughter. [[spoiler: Then the Creator/PatrickWarburton-voiced BigBad's identity is revealed, and Jim gives an incredibly creepy smirk...]].
