Pixar’s latest film, Inside Out, pulls at your heartstrings until the point where you’re an exposed ball of emotions, and that’s thanks in part to the incredible voice cast. The animation movie giant expertly positioned Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Bill Hader as Fear, Lewis Black as Anger, and Mindy Kaling as Disgust, and together they are the face of Inside Out. However, there’s a whole crop of incredible voice cameos that you might have missed if you weren’t using your ears. The film is a visual explosion of enthralling imagery, so it’s understandable if you weren’t able to connect all of the voices with their actors.

During the course of the film, we meet the emotions inside the head of a young girl named Riley and discover what happens when two of them — Joy and Sadness — are unceremoniously thrown out into the wilderness of her mind. As they attempt to get back to headquarters, they encounter a number of interesting and hilarious characters along the way, including imaginary friends, mind maintenance workers, and horrid abominations. (Ahem, Jangles the Clown.) Let’s shed some light on some familiar actors who brought some of these supporting players to life.

Flea
Character: Mind Worker Cop Jake

When Joy and Sadness are whisked away to the maze of Longterm Memory and the exciting Imagination Land, they encounter two Mind Worker Cops. One of them is named Jake and he gets his voice from off-the-wall musician Flea, a.k.a. Michael Peter Balzary. You might’ve missed the bass player, composer, and part-time actor because he barely had any lines, but just know that the same guy who performed naked with the Red Hot Chili Peppers at Woodstock is technically in a Pixar movie.
