It was until it was released on VHS that I ever realized that Saturday Night Live funnyman Dan Aykroyd had a cameo in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. One of my fellow co-workers at the video store wouldn’t believe me though even when I paused the tape and pointed him out, so I’m very grateful that Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News was kind enough to share this behind the scenes photo of Spielberg and Aykroyd chatting it up on the set.
