They Come With The Name

You know, when the star turns up in the re-make.

Main

Trope
It also counts when the actors/ voice actors from a film/ TV show make a return in an unrelated sequel, when their show/ film character is on another, or when the TV show is made into a film (or vice versa) and roles are reprised. Examples of this is when Jim's dad manages to make it into yet another American Pie film - and it still makes sense. Or Patrick Swayze as the instructor in Havana Nights. Then, when in Family Guy Season 7 the cast of 'How I Met Your Mother' is ordered to be killed, and theactors from HIMYM play their characters from the other show. In cases like these, the trope would be of the second show.

In one Marvel Avengers comic book, Nick Fury asks that if they ever make a film about S.H.I.E.L.D and the Avenges that he be played by Samuel L. Jackson, which he is. (Marvel had previously exchanged likeness rights for Fury in the modern comics with Samuel L. Jackson for the role of Fury in the films.)

    Perhaps 'Adaptation Creator Cameo' would be a catchier and wider-reaching title.

    Wouldn't that imply that the creator of the adaptation cameos in it? Maybe 'Creator Adaptation Cameo' instead? Or something like 'They come with the name' (e.g. if you're using the name, whoever made it famous gets to tag along)

    'The come with the name' sounds like when a guy shows up to give a title to something, or has a reputation for something.

    Related to Real Person Cameo, such as when Erin Brockovich shows up as a waitress in Erin Brockovich.

    And we do already have Creator Cameo, which is similar, and might easily be confused with this trope.

    The first paragraph described is Creator Cameo. The creator can be spotted in the film for no (plot-related) reason, simply as an Easter Egg for the audience.

    I also think this sounds like Creator Cameo.

    So, ditched the 'Creator Cameo' bit.

    The star turning up in the remake is surely Remake Cameo.
