    Danny Glover wasn't hiding in Maverick. Bret Maverick wanted to see the robbers face and pulled down the bandana to reveal that's it's Danny Glover. They both character got a sense of deja vu because both actors were in the Lethal Weapon movies. This was a joke.

    ARE YOU EFFIN' KIDDING ME?! The Danny Glover cameo in "Maverick" was used as a joke to poke fun at the Glover/Gibson collaboration in the "Lethal Weapon" movies, and the moment even shares a music cue with those films when the two are interacting. It's not "hidden" in any way, shape, or form -- it is just a surprise cameo. Time to find new writers, Looper.

    I really don't want to be "that guy", but in Maverick the bandana acutally slips off of Danny Glovers face, and he and Gibson stare at eachother confused for about 5 seconds while a very recognizable melody from Lethal Weapon plays in the background. After that, while escaping the scene of the crime, Glover can be heard saying "i'm too old for this shit". So all in all, that's hardly a well hidden cameo.

    You do know that they remove Glover's mask right? He's hardly hidden. It's also a completely intentional (fun) poke at Lethal Weapon. Maybe you should watch more than 3 seconds of a film?

    Huge actors just love to appear in Star Wars movies as stormtroopers. Daniel Craig and Tom Hardy both appeared as stormtroopers in Star Wars.
