We love a good comedic celebrity cameo. From Oprah Winfrey on "30 Rock" to Carl Weathers on "Arrested Development" and pretty much everyone on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," there's just something amazing about actors who have enough self-awareness to spoof themselves.
"Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" (premieres Wed., Apr. 11, 9:30 p.m. on ABC) has really embraced the "actors playing themselves" thing, tapping star James Van Der Beek to do just that, mocking his "Dawson's Creek" roots and his particularly bizarre place in the world of fame. But
Dawson The Beek James isn't alone in the self-mockery; "Superman" star Dean Cain, "Hercules" himself Kevin Sorbo and "Mad Men's" Sally Draper, a.k.a. Kiernan Shipka, are all popping by "Apartment 23" to play "themselves."
To honor their obvious love of lampooning, we've compiled a list of our own favorite self-parodying celebs on TV and feel free to share yours in the comments.
