Music videos tend to be a hit or miss, but one way to spice up the visual component of songs is to have a strong cast for the video, and having celebrities on board is a good way to do so.

You may not have even realized that certain actors and high-profile figures have starred or made cameos in videos by your favorite bands, so we compiled a photo gallery of some of the more prominent ones. For some of these celebs, these were the first true instances of exposure for them, and may or may not have helped further their careers. As for some of the others, it may have just made the band look pretty damn cool having someone so huge appear in their works.

And we promise... they aren't all Aerosmith videos, though they'd have a good roster of actresses to complement their videos.
