There are 7,769 actors detailed on the CCC website. Some have missed a single film. Others, many more. Then, there are the champions. Like these … and look how Nicholson is closing in on Brando's top total … now that I found I'd had the same film twice in Marlon's page. (Exciting huh?!)

2. Nicholson - 154 
3. Cary Grant -142 
4. Paul Newman - 139

Penny For Your Thoughts

Jack Bannon as Batman's Alfred

After Penny Dreadful and It's Pennywise, what's next - Penny Farthing? No, it's Pennyworth. Yes, Batman's general factotum, not to say dogsbody, has won his own series. Jack Bannon, from Medici, enacts his origins in the SAS, would you believe, and then is his own security biz. So more a series about the Mike Caine version of Alfred than the old dodderers, Alan Napier (on TV) and Michael Gough. Though just why an ex-SAS hero would choose to end his days as a butler, rather than settling down in Hove with Pussy Galore is one for the writers' bullpen to deal with. And, according to Bannon, showrunner Bruno Heller has "created this great playground to muck around in."

Girls, Girls, Girls

Just look what Brie Larson has started…
Maisie Williams, the ex-Aya Stark in Game of Thrones, leads Marvel's New Mutants in August (as Wolfsbane) and guess who is Agent M is in the all new (?) Men in Black: International? Tessa Thompson, of course, aka Thor's Valkyrie. Her boss is Emma Thompson (no kin) as Agent O.
Sophie Turner's Jean Grey turns into Dark Phoenix in the latest from Marvel's X-Men Division… Which has Mystique telling Xavier, "You might want to think about changing the name to X-Women."

Courtney Whitemore as Stargirl

DC hits back early next year, with Courtney Whitemore, aka Brec Bassinger, aka … Stargirl… and with, says DC, "the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America." So that means what? We're going to have The Avengers v The Guardians v Justice League v Justice Society v Manchester United?

Who IS This?

Nicole Kidman in Destroyer

Is this Nicole Kidman as a trainwreck of a cop in Destroyer? Or Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher #23? Or even Nic coming on strong as an even tougher Jacqueline Reacher? Answers on a postcard, please. No, no - it's Nic the cop. She has just never looked so much like ex-husband Tom before.

WELCOME to a unique directory of what you never saw on-screen. The films the stars did not make. The movies that never were. The most definitive collation of casting stories ... Check up on all the films - of yesterday, today and tomorrow - that your favourite stars never made... A cast of thousands - 7,766 actors - to click on... More than 40 years in the making!! And 2,313,666 words of spirited text. The ultimate in movie trivia ... Better! Exactly the kind of history that Hollywood deserves. Back to front. Upside-down. Inside out. Full of flashbacks, close-ups, tracking shots (and, alas some badly edited sequences - sorry about that!) forming a fascinating, new and often bizarre flip-side perspective on your treasured movies and stars.

This is the film that bred this site ... after Robert Redford told me he'd planned a little black-white version - with Robert De Niro, and Michael Moriarty as Woodstein.


Paris poppette Yvonne Monlaur was among the final few testing as Patricia, Thunderball's health club masseuse … with the mink glove. Delightful Mollie Peters won and then wed a policeman.



Meryl v Italian producer Dino de Laurentiis. Read all about it - in her first item.


Why didn't Rip Torn make Easy Rider - see his blue section on his page.


For the fullest story of why Anthony Michael Hall did not make Stanley Kubrick's 'Nam classic, go to Hall's page. (The blue section).


How Hollywood ruined Marilyn Monroe's dream role in The Brothers Karamazov is on Marilyn's page - item #17


Asked if she'd work with Woody Allen again, Frida Pinto said, "Absolutely not. I wouldn't work with him because I'm in solidarity with women who have come out with their stories, whether they are proven or not." Unbelievable!

"I don't know if I want to work for Disney." Dave Bautista. A real hero.

"This is my first priest… I'm ticking the boxes. Cowboy - check. Politician - check. Lawyer - check. I've basically spent my career working my way through The Village People."Rob Lowe on selecting roles

"Snogging Rachel Weisz is like you've won the lottery." Olivia Colman on The Favourite.

"I actually played Santa once. It was a voice for an animated film. I got fired. I don't think people bought me as Santa." John Malkovich

"What is the most important lesson life has taught me? You are never first choice." Zoe Wanamaker

"I'm nothing but compost most of the time." Bill Murray

"Breasts and bottoms look boringly alike." Lee Remick

"What Audrey Hepburn had, you couldn't teach, you couldn't even learn it. God kissed her on the cheek and there she was." Billy Wilder

"Nearly every woman I know in Hollywood has been 'Weinsteined' at some point. If not by him, then by someone else." Lisa Guerrero

Writing about Where Eagles Dare, 1968, Geoff Dyer said Clint Eastwood, "is not just squinting, he is squinting in German."

& THANKS to Eric Idle for this about Robert Downey Sr directIng Robert Downey Jr (and Eric) in Too Much Sun, 1990.  Senior:  "Robert, when  do you learn your lines?"  Junior:  "Oh usually by the third take."


Alas poor Chewie, we knew him well. His alter-ego, the great Peter Mayhew,  died in May at 74 ... David Prowse refused the role; he hated the suit. The London  hospital porter from Yorkshire won it in ten seconds. All he did was ... stand up. He was 2.2m tall. He had depth as well as height. George Lucas called him “the closest any human being could be to a Wookiee: big heart, gentle nature.” “We were partners in film and friends in life for over 30 years and I loved him,” said Harrison Ford. Rian Johnson (director of the next trilogy) added: “To create a beloved character with warmth and humour is a testament to any actor’s spirit. To do it under a half ton of yak hair takes a true legend.”


Some pages have muddling changes of typefaces, colours, spaces, and somewordssqueezedtogether ...  Extremely sorry! As Valmont said: "Beyond my control." This follows improving security. Long story.  Corrections are happening.
