If you are a Star Trek fan, then you’ve probably seen Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. And if you have seen that beloved classic, then you probably remember this:

Well, it seems that infamous punk, Kirk Thatcher, has returned to movie screens. However, it’s in a different city and different franchise. In speaking with StarTrek.com, the actor (who also co-wrote the punk song above, ‘I Hate You’) and former Leonard Nimoy assistant/co-producer revealed he has a small cameo role in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

I was having a meeting with the guys at Marvel and Kevin Feige had to leave early to catch a plane to New York for the last few days of shooting and wrap on Homecoming. I mentioned that I was going to New York too, only two days later. He got excited and asked if I would be interested in doing a cameo as a punk in Spider-Man? I, of course, said, ‘Sure!’ He said the producers would get in contact with me and I changed my flight from a Friday morning flight to a Thursday red-eye. I arrived in Manhattan at around 1:30 in the morning and my call time was 4:30 a.m. the same day… So I grabbed a couple hours sleep, took a taxi to the set and had brought my own wardrobe. They made me look a little grungier, and the whole thing was done by 11:30 that morning! So, it was really only about 48 hours from Wednesday afternoon when he asked if I was interested to Friday lunch time when we had finished shooting the scene

See him below, credited as ‘Punk on Street.’

What do you guys think? It’s a fun little cameo in a movie already filled with a lot of those!

Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters now.
