In another one of those ‘blink and you might miss it’ moments, Bird Box boasts a cameo that only eagle-eyed MTV fans would have spotted.
No, we’re not catfishing you—Catfish host Nev Schulman really does appear in the Netflix film…as the subject of Sandra Bullock’s painting!
The MTV show creator and his wife Laura Perlongo revealed their cameo on Instagram, Schulman joking, “BirdBox was scary and all, but the creepiest part is how much the couple in Sandra Bullock’s painting looks like me and Laura.”
He then went on to reveal: “We actually know the artist (@lilyjmorris) who did the paintings for #BirdBox and posed for her.”
While the couple only pop up art form, we’ve got to say the unique cameo is a pretty awesome way to make an appearance.
