Mikhail Baryshnikov made a cameo appearance in Rasputin vs Stalin. He was portrayed by PewDiePie.

Information on the cameo

Mikhail Nikolaevich Baryshnikov (nicknamed: Misha) was born on January 27, 1948, and he was a Russian dancer, choreographer and actor. He is known to be one of the greatest ballet dancers in history alongside Vaslav Nijinsky and Rudolf Nureyev. After a very good start in the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad, he stopped doing ballet and went to Canada in 1974 to start a career in western dances. After joining many companies (but leaving shortly afterwards), he joined the New York City Ballet as a high rank dancer to learn George Balanchine's style. He then danced with the American Ballet Theatre, where he later became an artistic director there.

Appearance in the rap battle

He appeared in the background when Mikhail Gorbachev said the line, "I had the balls to let Baryshnikov dance, playa!" He also acted as the transition to the next scene, in which Gorbachev said, "Tore down that wall like the Kool-Aid Man! Oh yeah!"
