Show: Modern Family
Year: 2010
Cameo role: Black Mamba

This cameo is almost gratuitous—what does Kobe Bryant really have to do with this updated family sitcom? But it saves itself on two fronts: first, it’s Kobe, and he’s got major confidence on camera. Second, it’s a pretty relatable situation (at least for those among us who suffer from starstruck syndrome). What would you say if a celebrity like Kobe really just wanted to chat?
