    The wife and I, for fun, we went through our DVD collection to see what actors showed up the most in our movies (we have roughly 1,000 films on DVD)
    We came up with this:

    1. Patrick Stewart
    2. (Tie) Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks
    3. (Tie) Arnold, Matt Damon, and Sean Connery
    4. (Tie) Will Smith and William Shatner
    5. (Tie) Clint Eastwood, Jim Carrey, Charlton Heston and Christopher Walken

    Keep in mind, this is just what we have in our collection.

    What's yours?

    1000 movies and Patric Stewart is #1? How many movies has he done? :lol
    I don't have specific numbers, but mine would be Harrison Ford, Abbott & Costello, Ginger Rogers, and William Shatner, not necessarily in that order.

    Trust me, we were quite surprised as well! The ones that put him over were Ted, Excalibur, Robin Hood men in tights, Dune, Safehouse and of course the Star Trek and X-men franchises.

    Now that I think about it, the most represented actor in my collection has to be Jackie Chan.

    Clint Eastwood.
    Laurel and Hardy are a close second, though.

    I have no clue where all of mine are, but I have a feeling it'll be a Japanese voice actor at #1. And that's even counting full series as "1". Most of my DVDs are Japanese.

    Harrison Ford and Sean Connery are up there for sure. Other than that I've got a (possibly surprising to some) very small DVD/Bluray collection. I watch a lot of my stuff in digital media, and nowadays it's more TV than anything else.

    I'd have to run the numbers, I think.. I have a fair bit of Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp's in everything, etc. I have an app that tracks that stuff, but I haven't been feeding all my DVDs and Blu-rays into it like a good boy.

    I gave away the last of my DVDs last week. I hadn't watched one in 4-5 years so it was time to get rid. I'm a big fan of digital media.

    Interesting and fun question. :)

    If we aren't counting television, Arnold tops the list with 14 films (including Pumping Iron).
    Number 2 is Stallone with 13.
    And coming in third... Bill Paxton??? (11 films)

    If we count television- Patrick Stewart/Lee Majors/William Shatner

    First place in my collection goes to Buster Keaton. I have a box set that includes 11 of his feature length movies and 21 of his short movies. Second place is probably Boris Karloff.

    I have a lot of various movies and sure some of the same actors appear in many of the titles, but I would have to say that Mel Blanc and Frank Welker are on more films than anyone else. I have an extensive animation library and those two WERE my childhood :)

    Remember kids. We are talking ONLY feature films. Absolutely NO TV as that would drastically change the dynamic of this thread.

    William Powell & Myrna Loy Two boxed sets--Thin Man series, and another of their other couplings. They made a lot of films together.
