Im wondering if you guys think there could be legal issues about that?

Of course not. See Being John Malkovich. And countless other scripts I've seen with Brad Pitt and John Stamos, etc as main plot lines. And so many comedy scripts have cameos from famous people in them.

It doesn't matter legally during writing stage. It's not being published or sold.
