Dan Aykroyd’s Subtle Cameo In Temple Of Doom
One of the stars of 1941, along with his The Blue Brothers co-star John Belushi, is legendary former Saturday Night Live cast member Dan Aykroyd. The forgotten wartime comedy would be his first collaboration with Steven Spielberg, but not his last. Only some eagle-eyed viewers would recognize it, though.
In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, as Indy, Willie, and Short Round arrive at an airport to take a plane out of China, they are greeted by a man named Weber, who says he arranged the transportation for them last minute. Portraying the brief role (hidden behind a fake mustache and a not-so-convincing British accent) is, indeed, Dan Aykroyd.
