Every Celebrity Cameo in the ‘House Party’ Reboot

New Line Cinema’s House Party remake, in theaters now, has extra celeb cameos than one can rely on each fingers. In reality, certainly one of the joys of viewing it with a crowd of individuals, versus watching it at dwelling, is attending to collectively gasp and holler at the bevy of well-known faces who find yourself crashing LeBron James’ crib—or attending a separate “Illuminati” gathering.

It’s no shock that so many celebrities would agree to look in a reboot of the beloved ’90s cult comedy. One may also think about {that a} basketball star as widespread as James, whose SpringHill Company co-produced the movie, was in a position to persuade A-listers like Lil Wayne, Mark Cuban, and Snoop Dogg to provide the comparatively small-scale movie a star-studded enhance.

All of House Party’s cameos are brilliantly timed and assist the movie attain an thrilling crescendo; I’d evaluate it to the reverse of a bounce scare in a horror movie. And whereas a few of these visitor stars have been beforehand introduced, there’s nonetheless a handful of pleasant surprises for audiences to take pleasure in.

If you’ve already seen the movie or don’t thoughts being spoiled, try a full record of House Party’s cameos beneath.

LeBron James

In addition to producing the movie, James performs an enormous half in House Party, as protagonists Kevin (Jacob Latimore) and Damon (Tosin Cole) secretly plot a boisterous bash in the Lakers star’s mansion. When James exhibits up, Damon challenges him to a one-on-one recreation of basketball. If he wins, James will let him and Kevin off the hook. If he loses, James will name the police. You can guess how this ends.

Bill Bellamy

Robin Harris’ “Pop” had a a lot bigger comedic presence in the unique House Party. But seeing Bellamy, an enormous star in ’90s and early aughts Black movies, basically tackle the function as Kevin’s dad—even for just a few seconds—is an absolute deal with.

Kid ‘N Play

It would be a sin not to include the stars of the original House Party and its two sequels in some respect. And while they only make a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it look at an Illuminati celebration, their presence takes the movie in an unexpectedly wild course.

Mark Cuban

No shock that this basketball team-owning billionaire can also be a member of the Illuminati, based on this film.

Big Sean (and Hit-Boy)

It’s no secret that James is a fan of Big Sean. In the movie, the Detroit rapper arrives at James’ mansion with distinguished hip-hop producer Hit-Boy. They aren’t given a lot to do besides observe the celebration’s chaos, nevertheless it’s at all times good seeing the good-looking face of Ariana Grande’s ex.

Kid Cudi

The rapper has been flexing his appearing muscular tissues for over a decade now, and right here, he will get to be extra of a supporting character than only a cameo. And whereas he’s solely tasked with enjoying a stoned-out parody of himself in this movie, he does a reasonably nice job bringing the laughs. When Kevin and Damon uncover James’ championship ring is stolen, Cudi takes them to an Illuminati gathering to get a alternative. Then, in an unexpectedly chaotic flip, he will get stabbed to demise in a gladiator-style struggle at the celebration.

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne famously had beef with James a couple of decade in the past that has since been put to relaxation. He’s additionally an enormous Lakers fan. So why wouldn’t he conform to have one line in this movie?

Karrueche Tran

The Claws actress exhibits up for about three seconds in a reasonably thankless cameo throughout the celebration. She seems nice, although!


A celebration hasn’t actually began till you’ve heard Juvenile’s 1999 basic “Back That Azz Up.” The Louisiana rapper exhibits up throughout a DJ set to carry out the track, and even in a crowd of moviegoers, it’s exhausting to not transfer in your seat whenever you hear it.

Early on, we study that Damon has an enormous crush on R&B singer Mýa. He finally ends up inviting her to the celebration in a disguised e-mail, and for some motive, she finds his poetically corny message endearing. I can’t think about the “Case of the Ex” singer really being in such a goofy man, however the movie is basically a dude’s fantasy.

Tristan Thompson

Take again what I mentioned earlier—Tristan Thompson’s look in the movie is an precise jumpscare. Presumably, we’re supposed to search out the inclusion of the NBA star—who’s in all probability greatest recognized for dishonest on Khloe Kardashian—both extraordinarily jarring or laugh-out-loud humorous, as the movie cuts to the tightest close-up of his face. Either means, no thanks!

Odell Beckham Jr.

Fortunately, Thompson’s nefariousness is counterbalanced by star footballer OBJ, who leans into his “himbo” schtick as a confused celebration visitor.

Lena Waithe

The Emmy winner, recognized for starring in Master of None and penning Queen and Slim, earns certainly one of the greatest laughs when she pitches a TV present concept throughout a smoke sesh. “Roots but backwards.”


Pop and R&B singer Tinashe will get to point out off her Janet Jackson-level strikes throughout the movie’s signature dance sequence. Something about her look—identical to her unassuming presence inside the pop music sphere—is immediately humorous. Nevertheless, she completely kills it on the dance ground, as per standard.

Anthony Davis

One can assume it was fairly straightforward for James to get his unibrowed teammate out of the home for just a few hours to briefly seem in an out of doors scene.

Walter Emanuel Jones

It’s at all times enjoyable when a distinct segment childhood determine pops up in a comedy movie, often as some type of gag. Likewise, it’s considerably of a joke when the actor who performed the unique Black Power Ranger exhibits as much as the celebration making an attempt to satisfy “hoes.”


The web character, who you’ve in all probability seen hanging out with Drake, Lil Yachty, or Jack Harlow, will get to knock down a portrait in a hilariously tense scene.

Snoop Dogg

The West Coast rapper is after all in attendance, casually having fun with the festivities with a joint. Duh.
