It’s not unusual to see big stars cameo in movies. Emma Watson had a few lines in This is the End, Selena Gomez showed her face in The Muppets and Hugh Jackman in X-Men: First Class was priceless (even though he was only on screen for, like, .5 seconds). What is rare, though, is when we see book-to-movie adaptations feature the authors of the novels themselves.

Last August, it was reported that John Green would make an appearance in the big-screen version of his tearjerker novel, The Fault in Our Stars, leaving Nerdfighters fangirling all over the world. Unfortunately, his stint’s been cut from the film. (*sad face*) BUT director Josh Boone says we’ll find some solace when the flick becomes available after its time in theaters.
