1. PATRICK EWING AS THE ANGEL OF DEATH IN THE EXORCIST III (1990)
It should come as no surprise that movies ending in the number “3” are rarely any good. Not many people are aware that The Exorcist III exists, but it most certainly does, and it ain’t pretty. Still, despite tepid reviews and thin box office returns, this flick actually does bring something noteworthy to the table: Patrick Ewing.
Complete with an outstretched pair of feathery wings and a pristine white robe, the former New York Knicks center has a brief—and extremely random—cameo in the movie as the Angel of Death, much to the befuddlement of fans everywhere. The cameo serves no real purpose as Ewing doesn’t really do much, but the mere sight of the Hall of Famer is surreal enough to be memorable. Just not for the right reasons.
While we're sure that Ewing could never rival Marlon Brando or Joseph Cotten for acting dominance, the filmmakers could have at least given him something to do so his part didn't seem completely nonsensical. As a side note, if he had those wings in real life, maybe Scottie Pippen wouldn't have his manhood in a jar on the mantle right now.
