The urge to cameo is an easily understandable one. If you're typically known for your name and your work but not your face, it's not hard to see why you wouldn't mind a quick moment in the spotlight.

Given his epic career, Stephen King has had this urge a fair few times, ranging from walk-on parts to fully fledged characters. We've assembled six of the best examples here to showcase his acting talents.

Fever Pitch

If you're a King fan then you'll probably be aware that he's quite the Red Sox obsessive so in this romantic comedy, set against a baseball backdrop, he seemed like a perfect fit for a small cameo, playing himself.

Maximum Overdrive

In the only film he ever directed, King gave himself the small but funny role of a man encountering a rather rude ATM...

Rose Red

In this small screen adaptation of his supernatural thriller, King cropped up as a rather unlikely pizza delivery guy.

Frasier

Two cameos for the price of one here. Firstly, you can hear famed chef Wolfgang Puck as 'Tom' and then after, a very brief but funny voice turn from King as 'Brian'.

Sleepwalkers

Three cameos here for the price of one as King crops up alongside other horror legends Tobe Hooper and Clive Barker.

Sons Of Anarchy

An extended cameo on the hit show which was offered to King after he raved about the show in his Entertainment Weekly column. Apparently he was lured by the opportunity to ride a Harley.
