Many years ago, using the weekly TV guide that came with the Sunday Chicago Tribune, I started keeping track of all of the movies I had seen over the course of my lifetime. The guide would list the two main stars for each movie, and that is a tradition that I’ve carried on in my database ever since. So, given those guidelines, and thanks to a corona virus inspired uptick to my movie watching this year, it is time to look at the 100 actors that have starred in at least 10 films that I have seen, as of July 1.
Today, we continue with the 10 actors that have starred in 12 movies that I have seen, an increase of 1 at this level from 3 years ago.
The Veronica Mars star made her first “big screen” appearance in my life with the television remake of Reefer Madness in 2005. She’s been a pretty steady presence since, with a 2 year gap in 2015 and 2016 being her largest. Like Father, which I saw earlier this year, is my most recent exposure to her.
I have not seen a Michael Douglas starring project since 2015’s Ant-Man.
Aaron Eckhart first showed up on the list of film actors I’ve seen way back in 1999 with Your Friends & Neighbors. Since then, his appearances have been a little haphazard, with nothing more than 3 2-year streaks over the past 18 years. The most recent film of his I’ve seen was 2014’s atrocious I, Frankenstein, which I unfortunately saw earlier this year.
My final Haim film was 1993’s Just One Of The Girls, which I saw in 2004. Haim passed away in 2010, so he is not likely to be moving up this list anytime soon.
In 1992, I headed to the theaters to see White Men Can’t Jump, where I first encountered Woody Harrelson in film. 7 of Harrelson’s films came between 1992 and 2000, after which there was a long lull. Harrelson came back in to my world in 2008, then added 2 more in 2010. After a 9 year layoff, Harrelson returned earlier this year with 2019’s Zombieland: Double Tap.
