When it comes to cameos, no one is more experienced than Stan Lee.

The co-creator of iconic Marvel comic book characters like Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and the X-Men appeared in a new Audi commercial, in which he teaches several Hollywood stars the subtle art of cameo acting.

Lee’s class consists of writer/director/comics superfan Kevin Smith, “Guardians of The Galaxy” star Michael Rooker, and “Sharknado” star Tara Reid. “Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno makes a cameo himself, as a man looking for an anger management class.

“I’ve studied a lot of acting methods,” Rooker said. “I’ve studied the Stanislavski method, the method method, but I’ve never studied anything like the Stan Lee method.”

Lee certainly knows what he’s teaching, as he has appeared in bit parts in virtually every Marvel movie to date. From a museum guard, to a mailman, to a man waiting to cross the street, Lee has played them all. “When it comes to small roles, Stan Lee is the biggest,” Smith, who also directed the ad, said.

Fans will have to wait and see where Lee pops up in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1.
