Bullet Train has an impressive cast list, but there are also several memorable and unexpected cameos in the movie.
The action flick sees Brad Pitt take on the role of assassin Ladybug, who is sent on a mission on a Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto that is full of killers just like him.
As well as fighting for his life against these assassins during the journey, Ladybug also has encounters with several characters played by fellow famous faces. Here is everything you need to know.
Which A-List Stars Have a Cameo in Brad Pitt’s Film?
There are three Hollywood stars who make cameos in the film, two of whom Pitt recently starred opposite in the film The Lost City.
That’s right, Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock both appear in Bullet Train, with Tatum appearing on the train itself and Bullock playing a more significant character in Ladybug’s life.
While on the Bullet Train, Ladybug has to do everything he can to avoid being detected by twin killers Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry) and Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
But they’re not the only people he has to evade, as Ladybug also draws the ire of the train conductor (played by Masi Oka) when he loses his ticket.
While trying not to be seen by the assassins and also the train conductor, Ladybug sits opposite a passenger played by Tatum.
Tatum’s character is immediately taken with Pitt’s Ladybug, and he even asks if the hitman’s request to swap clothes is “a sex thing.” In the end it was just a way to thwart the assassins chasing him because they believe that Tatum is Ladybug.
Eagle-eyed fans might notice that Tatum’s passenger is reading a romance novel when Pitt encounters him. This appears to be the same novel that Bullock’s character Loretta Sage wrote in The Lost City.
Bullock, meanwhile, takes on the role of Ladybug’s handler, Maria Beetle, and she speaks to him on the phone throughout the film, reassuring him of his mission and his capability to complete it.
Beetle is a constant presence in Ladybug’s life and she appears in person at the end of the film, once the train journey has reached its explosive conclusion.
The final Hollywood A-lister to appear in the film is Ryan Reynolds, who makes an almost blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo as Carver, the assassin who Ladybug is filling in for on the job.
Reynolds’ Carver may only appear briefly, but his significance to the plot is undeniable since it’s part of the reason why the train journey happens the way it does.
Bullet Train is out in theaters now.
