Writers Digest has put together a neat compilation of Stephen King movie appearances.  Zachary Petit writes about Creepshow, “Creepshow, written by Stephen King and directed by George Romero (Night of the Living Dead), features an entire segment starring King. In a hilariously weird turn, he plays an overall-clad man who discovers a meteor in his yard, and experiences some trying side effects.”
His list goes as follows:

with clips:
  • Pet Sematary
  • Maximum Overdrive
  • Creepshow
  • Langoliers
  • The Stand
  • Sleepwalkers
  • Rose Red
  • Kingdom Hospital
  • Frazier
cameos without clips include:
  • Knightriders (1981)
  • Creepshow II (1987)
  • Golden Years (1991)
  • Thinner (1996)
  • The Shining (1997)Storm of the Century (1999)
  • Gotham Cafe (2005)
  • Sons of Anarchy (2010)
. . . and not mentioned: The SIMPSONS!

Check out the site, as Petit includes several clips that are a lot of fun.  My favorite is Sleepwalkers and Maximum Overdrive.
  • check out my article: King On Screen (HERE)  which also does not include the Simpsons.  Go figure.
  • And here is an article from my favorite Stephen King website, Lilja's Library, titled, "Did You Catch Stephen King?"  ALAS!  he did get the Simpsons.
