Spoilers ahead for Free Guy!
Director Shawn Levy’s action-comedy Free Guy revolves around Ryan Reynolds’ bank teller Guy, an NPC in a raucous GTA-style, open-world shooter game called Free City who rebels against his programming.
But while Guy is the focus of the story, Free Guy doesn’t take place wholly within the realm of the video game. The movie sees “real world” characters, such as Jodie Comer’s coder Millie Rusk enter the game as avatars.
With Free Guy set in both the real world and one where people can hide behind their avatars, the film was ripe for cameos and Easter eggs — and Levy and Reynolds didn’t waste the opportunity to enlist some of their industry pals (among others) to appear in the movie.
