Ricky and Morty is a hilarious Adult Swim cartoon. Something very funny about the show is its many celebrity cameos and parodies.
Season 4 of Rick & Morty has finally debuted nearly two and a half years after season 3 came to a conclusion and the two titular characters have picked up right where they left off, taking numerous sci-fi inspired adventures and running into countless other crazy creatures across the infinite number of universes.
There may still be five episodes left in season 4, but there have already been numerous guest stars throughout the first five episodes falling right in line with the previous Rick & Morty seasons which were abundant with celebrity cameos – and here’s our list of the 10 best that have appeared throughout the entire series.
Every Community Guest Star
Dan Harmon may have found international success with Rick & Morty, but die-hard fans of the shows creator know that he also created the comedy Community, a sitcom centered around a group of misfit students at a community college.
Fans of the show have noticed several Community actors frequently popping up in Rick & Morty episodes, with key cast members such as Joel McHale, Jim Rash, Gillian Jacobs, and John Oliver having all made guest appearances throughout the years. That said, we’re still waiting for Donald Glover, Alison Brie, Yvette-Nicole Brown, Ken Jeong, and Danny Pudi to make appearances (probably can’t get Chevy).
Keegan-Michael Key & Jordan Peele
While it might be a cartoon, Rick & Morty is undoubtedly a comedy so it’s only natural that the show might bring in some guest stars who have experience with comedic television. Enter: Key & Peele.
The comedy-duo who had their own show on Comedy Central from 2012-2015 have taken the entertainment world by storm in the past decade and have popped up in dozens of movies and shows – including the season 2 premiere where they played 5th Dimension Testicle Monsters (you read that right). This entire episode was bizarre and Key & Peele were the only comedians who could’ve helped pull it off.
Let’s just say that you don’t pay with money (followed by creepy, undertone cackle). Alfred Molina may not be the most recognizable celebrity on this list, but that didn’t stop the actor’s cameo from being hilarious as his character, The Devil, clashes with Rick over a variety of cursed items that he sells in an antique shop.
One of the few guest stars from the first season, Molina’s character is usually the smartest person in the room (he is The Devil, after all) and thoroughly enjoys getting the better of people – until Rick comes along and beats him at his own game.
If you haven’t had the chance to watch any of season 4 yet, we’d highly recommend it – and not just because of some of the amazing guest star cameo’s the season has already had, including acclaimed director Taika Waititi. The filmmaker who gained international attention after his smash-hit, Thor: Ragnarok, plays an alien named Glootie who has an incredibly keen interest in getting somebody to help him develop an app.
However, Rick tattoos on the alien’s head that nobody should help him develop the app, which (of course) prompts Jerry to start helping Glootie immediately. We won’t give away the episode (there are actually multiple other guest stars in it) but we will recommend it.
“Pickle Rick” is one of the most well-known episodes of the entire series (rightfully so) and it has two guest-stars that appear on this list, the first of which is Danny Trejo.
The actor plays an assassin named Jaguar, tasked with killing the pickle version of Rick when he accidentally breaks into a secure compound. This entire episode was ridiculous as it was brilliant, and the addition of Danny Trejo made it even better (especially with lines like, “this can only end with one of us dead – and I have never died,”).
