Here he plays the role of a priest. His role is short-lived: he appears only at Missy Dandridge's funeral.

Golden Years (1991)

The miniseries wasn't a hit, but the scene where King plays a greedy corporate boss appearing at the head of a table on a runway was a memorable scene.

Red Rose (2002)

Sons of Anarchy (2008–2014)

King appears in a season three episode as the character Richard Bachman, who helps dispose of a corpse. He's a recycling expert - the best in the business.

It (2019)

An adaptation of King's novel It. In the film, he appears as the owner of an antique store. The cameo was created in the style of an Easter egg for King fans.

Confrontation (2020)

In the new adaptation, Stephen King appears as a resident of a nursing home. And there he is only in an advertising photo at a bus stop.
