Let's Talk About That Amazing Cameo In 'Paper Towns'


For all you John Green fans out there who rushed to theaters this weekend to see "Paper Towns," we have something to discuss ... O.M.G.

Spoiler alert for anyone who doesn't want to learn who made a surprise cameo in "Paper Towns." 


How amazing was that Ansel Elgort cameo?! 

Last year, John Green told The Huffington Post that the "Fault in Our Stars" actor and his co-star Shailene Woodley begged him to be a part of "Paper Towns," even if it was just for a second. "The day that it was announced, I got emails from both Ansel and Shailene, saying, 'I really want to be in "Paper Towns," just a small role, like if I could have like one line.' And I wrote Ansel back and I was like, 'Yeah, I'm sure we can find something for you.' And he was like, 'No man, I’m not kidding. I want to be in the movie.'"

Well, Elgort got his wish. The 21-year-old makes his brief cameo as a gas station attendant during the movie's road trip sequence. 

"It was kind of a last minute thing, but it was so funny," the star of "Paper Towns" Nat Wolff, who also played Elgort's best friend in "TFIOS," told HuffPost of the scene-stealing surprise. "They gave him like tattoos at the last minute, too, and it was pretty hilarious," he said.

Yes, we wholeheartedly agree.

 Elgort seemingly tweeted about his special appearance with the below post of a dragon emoji. (He rocks a dragon tattoo during the scene.)
