Director/Producer Cameo In Their Own Movie(s)
Pretty much a thread where movie geek(s) know how to spot the director and/or producer in their own movie(s). Please feel free to add your director/producer film spots. Also, would be cool if you actually spotted w/o the help of IMDB &/or Wiki.
ARMAGEDDON (1998) - There is a scene where the scientist(s) are busy doing something and one of them is director Michael Bay sitting on a chair.
FAST & FURIOUS (2001) - The scene where they close the roads for the first race, an old ass pizza boy is blocked from his delivery route, it's Rob Cohen, the director. Also, the bit where Vin Disel and Paul Walker are in the suped-up Supra, a guy in a Ferrai pulls up w/ a girl acting all cocky, it's producer Neal H. Moritz.
THE TRANSPORTER (2002) - Jason Statham is looking for a file on suspect criminals on a CPU and the first criminal that pops up on screen is the film's producer, Luc Besson.
BAD BOYS II (2003) - Martin Lawrence and Will Smith need a car to catch the bad guys and Martin stops the first car he sees and it's a funky lil' car, the driver is Michael Bay. Funny-ass scene BTW.
CASINO ROYALE (2006) - The scene where James Bond goes into the town square to meet w/ his contact. James Bond's contact sets-up the police commissioner (I think). Anyways, the person is played by Michael G.Wilson. The film's producer.
EDIT: Spelling. =)

Wall Street (1987)
Oliver Stone took a small role as a stock trader, who invested in the hot stock of Anacot Steel, in a brief appearance during a 3-way split screen sequence or montage, exclaiming to his broker on the phone: "Take it and bid it!"
The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
Director Steven Spielberg could be found in a very small role eating popcorn and seated on a sofa (only seen faintly in the TV's glass reflection), in the final scene when Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), Sarah Harding (Julianne Moore), and Kelly (Vanessa Lee Chester) were watching a CNN Live report of the T-Rex being transported back to the "Lost World" of Isla Sorna after it had gone on a rampage in San Diego
Mean Streets (1973)
Martin Scorsese as the uncredited gunman Jimmy Shorts who shoots "Johnny Boy" (Robert DeNiro) and Charlie Cappa (Harvey Keitel) at the end of the film from the back seat of a car; to add another layer of meaning, he was also visible for a split instant in a "portrait" of Charlie in the opening home movies/main title credits sequence, and Scorsese also served as the interior voice of Charlie when he was kneeling and praying in church in one of the film's earlier scenes -- delivering the off-screen narrated line: "Lord, I'm not worthy to eat your flesh, not worthy to drink your blood."
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Quentin Tarantino Jimmie Dimmick.
Raging Bull (1980)
Martin Scorsese as a Barbizon stagehand (whose shoulder is glimpsed in the mirror) informing Jake LaMotta (Robert DeNiro), in the film's conclusion, that he has five minutes before going on stage.
Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
George Lucas dressed in alien garb as Baron Papanoida.
