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 11 movies that I have seen, the same number at this level as 3 years ago.
There has been no change for Carrey since I last encountered him back in 2009, when I saw the previous year’s Yes Man.
DiCaprio first appeared on my movie screen in 1996, with The Basketball Diaries. After a three year run to start, I had a gap of 8 years between his films, from 2002-2009. 2011 was his most prolific year, with 3 different films. The most recent film of his that I’ve seen was last year’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, which I saw earlier this year.
A nice debut for Gugino, who first showed up on my radar in the mid-90s thanks to her role in the Pauly Shore classic Son-In-Law. She appeared in 2 films that I saw in 2001, 2016, and 2020, with 2011’s Hide and 2017’s Gerald’s Game.
2006 remains the last time I saw a starring role from Helen Hunt.
After replacing Dougray Scott as Wolverine in 2000’s X-Men, Hugh Jackman has been a steady presence on my movie screen. 7 of those appearances have been in the X-Men universe, including his last appearance, in 2017’s Logan.
