See if you can tell that it's actually Matt Damon in the following films.

It wasn't just Scotty who didn't know that it was Matt Damon who made the cameo as the bad boy rocker in this raunchy comedy, many of us were surprised.

'Behind the Candelabra' (2013)

Basically no one in this film looked anything like they typically do, but that's what happens when you star in a Liberace biopic. Matt Damon plays Scott Thorson, Liberace's lover, alongside Michael Douglas as Liberace.

'True Grit' (2010)

Those sideburns! That 'stache! That cowboy hat! As Texas Ranger LeBoeuf in this Western drama from the Coen brothers, Damon is barely recognizable.

'Happy Feet Two' (2011)

Shockingly, Bill the Krill was played by Matt Damon in the sequel to the "dancing penguin" film Happy Feet. I know, I'm amazed, too — that barely looks like Matt Damon.
