Los Angeles: Jeff Bezos, the Amazon CEO is all set to make a cameo in the upcoming sci-fi action film "Star Trek Beyond". The film’s producer JJ Abrams and director Justin Lin confirmed his appearance in interviews on Friday, according to The Guardian.

Also according to reports by the Hollywood Reporter Bezos will be having a small appearance in the film.

The business tycoon, who is big fan of the franchise, will play the role of an alien in the movie. 

"He was awesome. It was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didn't matter because he was so into it," said Lin. 

Praising Bezos for his acting skills, Lin said, "He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting, like, three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because... he just nailed it every time."
