Alex Wong/Getty Images founder Jeff Bezos might be working on his own plans for space travel, but it doesn’t look like he’s above getting a little help from Hollywood. According to Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin, Bezos will have a small cameo role in the upcoming science fiction film.

Bezos joins other celebrities who have had roles in high-profile reboots, such as Daniel Craig, who portrayed a stormtrooper in The Force Awakens; Jimmy Buffett in Jurassic World; and Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Lin said that Bezos would be portraying an alien in a long tracking shot in the film, and the tech billionaire is listed as playing a Starfleet Official on IMDb. Star Trek Beyond star Chris Pine noted that the Bezos made a splash when he arrived, accompanied by nine body guards all traveling in three limousines.
