Thomas Dolby in Howard the Duck in the night club brawl scene. Granted he wasn't the "composer" of the picture, his songs played a significant role in the film and one of the teaser trailers even listed his credit as "Music by Thomas Dolby" before John Barry came along.

Heitor Pereira and some other RCP musicians were in the first scene of It's Complicated.

that's awesome!

I've seen that film like 10 times. charming score too.

Checking IMDb it was Heitor, Ramin Djawadi, and Ryeland Allison.

Hans' Nancy Myers and James L. Brooks scores are always lovely.

I think this was the score that Hans told Varese to cancel their release of since he thought it was too repetitive and didn't want people to waste their money on it. Ended up being like 4 or 5 tracks on iTunes.

Well, what are your requirements for that? I write music, I use pencils and papers, and sometimes it gets performed and I get paid.

Sounds like a composer to me.

I wonder how big his role is.

So has anybody seen this yet? Did you spot him?

Apparently he has a speaking part even.
