Which sci-fi star filmed a cameo in E.T. that was cut before release?

Steven Spielberg holds a lot of sway in Hollywood. I mean, who else could pull off a power move like getting a movie star to make a cameo in your new movie, and then cut the scene entirely?

Spiels does not give an eff, and he will clearly steamroll anyone who gets in his way. Don’t let his down-to-earth nice guy demeanor fool you. If he reaches out to you for a cameo, just keep this in mind.

You may have heard rumblings of rumors regarding this exact scene on internet forums or whispered among friends on movie night. The rumors are true, but who was the star that Spielberg ruthlessly cut out of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial?
