Entertainment TV From Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to Dolly Parton: Stars Who Made Cameos on 'Hannah Montana' These guest stars really got the best of both worlds By Andrea Wurzburger Updated on March 28, 2021 06:30 PM Share Tweet Pin Email 01 of 25 Noah Cyrus Disney Channel It's all in the family! While Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, played her television dad Robby Ray Stewart on the series, her little sister, Noah, managed to make a few cameos herself, appearing in six episodes across the show's four seasons. 02 of 25 Dolly Parton Disney Channel/Kobal/Shutterstock Cyrus' "honorary godmother" in real life, Parton played Hannah Montana's aunt and godmother, going simply by Aunt Dolly on the show. 03 of 25 Brooke Shields Joel Warren / © Disney Channel / Courtesy Everett Collection Nothing could get between Shields and her ... guest-starring role on Hannah Montana. She played Miley's late mom, Susan Stewart. 04 of 25 Joey Fatone Joel Warren/Disney Channel via Getty The former member of 'NSYNC showed up on the show in season 2, episode 21, when he played former baseball player Joey Vitolo, who owned an Italian restaurant in an episode fittingly called, "Bye Bye Ball." 05 of 25 Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Disney Channel The former WWE wrestler-turned-actor appeared on the show as himself in season 2, episode 17. If you're wondering why he looked so fabulous, it's because Miley and her BFF, Lilly (Emily Osment) made a deal with a tabloid to get a photo of him post-makeover. 06 of 25 John Cena Eric McCandless/Disney Channel via Getty The professional wrestler also had a guest-starring role as himself on the show. He appeared in season 4, episode 7, and showed Miley's brother Jackson (Jason Earles) some wrestling moves ... in a hallucination. 07 of 25 Selena Gomez Danny Feld / © Disney Channel / Courtesy Everett Cyrus' fellow Disney Channel fave (Gomez starred on Wizards of Waverly Place) played Hannah Montana's nemesis, making multiple appearances throughout the series. 08 of 25 Dr. Phil Eric McCandless/Disney Channel via Getty Dr. Phil McGraw appeared as himself in season 4, episode 9, when Miley hallucinated him while driving. 09 of 25 Alison Brie Disney Channel The Glow actress played Nina, a hairdresser who convinced a smitten Jackson to let her do his hair, only to make him bald. Hey, in the words of Hannah Montana, "Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days." 10 of 25 Jesse McCartney Joel Warren / ©Disney Channel / courtesy Everett Collection The "Beautiful Soul" singer made everyone (including Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana) swoon when he met her backstage at her concert in season 2 and invited her to hang out with him. 11 of 25 The Jonas Brothers Joel Warren / © Disney Channel / Courtesy Everett Collection It wouldn't be a Disney Channel show in the early 2000s if The Jonas Brothers didn't show up. They appeared in season 2, episode 16, eventually collaborating with Hannah Montana on the song, "We Got the Party." In real life, Cyrus and Nick Jonas dated in 2006 and she famously wrote her song "7 Things I Hate About You" about him after they broke up the following year. 12 of 25 Corbin Bleu Joel Warren / © Disney Channel / Courtesy Everett Collection The High School Musical star made two appearances on the show: the first on the series premiere as one of Miley's crushes, and the second during season 2, when he won an auction to have dinner with Hannah Montana. You can see the dilemma! 13 of 25 Ray Romano Joel Warren / © Disney Channel / Courtesy Everett Collection Everybody Loves ... a cameo! The actor made his in the same episode as Bleu as one of the celebrities being auctioned off. 14 of 25 Ray Liotta Jaimie Trueblood/Disney Channel via Getty The Goodfellas actor played Miley's high school principal, who just so happened to be a massive Hannah Montana fan. 15 of 25 Lisa Rinna Disney Channel The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star made a cameo in season 3 of the show as the cousin of the Stewarts' neighbor, Francesca, who was a huge fan of Robby Ray. 16 of 25 Larry David Danny Feld / © Disney Channel / Courtesy Everett Collection The Curb Your Enthusiasm star pulled off the ultimate "cool dad" move when he nabbed himself and his daughters, Cazzie and Romy, a cameo on the show. 17 of 25 Kelly Ripa Disney Channel Ripa played herself on season 4, episode 12 of Hannah Montana, interviewing Miley after she revealed her secret identity to the world in episode 9. 18 of 25 Kat Graham Disney Channel The Vampire Diaries alumna made an appearance on the show in season 3, playing Jackson's girlfriend, Allison. 19 of 25 John Cryer Dean Hendler/Disney Channel via Getty Cryer played Lilly's wacky father in season 3 of the show. Cyrus would later return the favor, appearing on Cryer's sitcom, Two and a Half Men, in a guest role in 2012. 20 of 25 Heather Locklear Disney Channel The Melrose Place actress played Heather Truscott, Lilly's mom. She and Robby Ray sent everyone into a tizzy when they decided to go on a date. 21 of 25 David Koechner Disney Channel You'll recognize Koechner from The Office, The Goldbergs and more, but he appeared on Hannah Montana as Miley's kooky Uncle Earl on season 2, episode 22. 22 of 25 Gilbert Gottfried Disney Channel The comedian and voice actor played harsh music critic, Barney Bittman, on the same episode! 23 of 25 Jay Leno Eric McCandless/Disney Channel via Getty The late-night host got the fictional scoop of the century when Miley revealed her secret on his show in season 4 of the series. 24 of 25 Austin Butler Disney Channel The actor played Derek Hanson, Miley's blind date who was a bit of a scaredy-cat, in season 2, episode 7. 25 of 25 Sheryl Crow Craig Sjodin/Disney Channel via Getty The singer and Hannah Montana performed a duet of "Need a Little Love" together in season 4.
