Awesome Cameo: Hook

There’s a really interesting cameo in Steven Spielberg’s Hook, which I learned about recently. Watch the following clip and see if you can guess who it is before scrolling down for the answer:


Finished watching the video? Glenn Close plays the pirate who Hook interrogates and puts in the box with the scorpion. I caught the end of Skylark on TV last night and was reminded of her cameo. Pretty freaky, eh?

  1. That is incredible!

    This wasn’t the cameo I thought you were talking about.
    When I was a pro-wrestling obsessed teenager, there were rumors that Mick Foley played a pirate that bumps shoulders with Peter as he’s walking.

  4. […] this unlikely pair ’cause of something I saw on somebody else’s blog … over at Cinexcellence where Striderdemme has a link to a YouTube video of a strange cameo, I saw this clip of Glenn Close […]
