Just as the title implies, I want to know what actor/actress has been in the most movies ever. I began wondering this the other day when I was having a movie discussion with friends and realized nearly all the movies we talked about had Phil Hartman cameo. So?

Internationally it's probably someone in Bollywood.

I'm sure someone on imdb.com would know.

I know John Wayne had a ton, and so did John Rhys-Davies. Just check it out on IMDB.

What's he doin?
He's finishing his senior thesis. Pigman is trying to prove the Caine-Hackman theory. No matter what time it is, 24 hours a day, you can find a Michael Caine or Gene Hackman movie playing on TV.
That's his thesis?
Yes! That's the beauty of college these days, Tommy! You can major in Game Boy if you know how to bullshit.

Dear Yahoo!:
What actor has appeared in the most movies? I heard it was Gene Hackman.
Brooks
White Lake, Michigan
Dear Brooks:
To find your answer, we headed straight to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), a huge and comprehensive film resource we've consulted many times.

First, we looked up Gene Hackman to see if your suspicion was correct. This venerable actor has completed 73 films (not including TV movies) plus one currently in post-production and two uncredited film appearances. That's a respectable number, but it didn't sound record-breaking.

If you're looking for the actor who had the most leading roles in films, Guinness World Records lists John Wayne as tops. The Duke was the leading man in 142 movies.

However, film roles can take many forms, and a voice may be just as important as a face on the screen. The man behind Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig had more movie actor credits to his name than anyone. Mel Blanc performed in 709 films, not including over 100 TV movies and video productions. He also had 81 uncredited voice parts in films.

Of course, these stats only focus on American and European movies. There's a great, big world of filmmaking out there, and India's Bollywood film industry is the most productive on the planet. India made a record of 948 movies in just one year, 1990, and Indian actors regularly make more movies than Hollywood actors.

Right behind Mel Blanc on the IMDB's list of most prolific actors is Adoor Bhasi. Before his death in 1990, Bhasi was featured in 549 films. It's possible that other Indian film actors have been in upwards of 1,000 films, and with Bollywood production steaming along, Bhasi's ranking may be easily surpassed.


A-ha! Mel Blanc indeed.

What about Peter North? He's the first one I though of.

EDIT: Holy shit, IMDb says 1591. :shock:

If you get that general then it's no one famous it's probably some nobody who's a backround person in a ton of movies. Who's been in the most movies as a semi-main charecter would be a better question. If anyone here's checked the leading man list. My main man Samuel L Jackson should be overtacking Harrison ford in the near future. Greatly due to Star Wars of course. In terms of all time gross.

Makes me think of one of those "turn game name into a porno title."

I saw that you put Peter North and he had the most, I just noticed that Tom Bryon was in alot of films also and thought he should be listed also.

I thought this topic was for which movie had the most and longest credits, as in director, producer... etc.

I was just in Batman Begins and the credits must be at least 12 minutes long.

I always thought Hitler had the most. He definitely has the most starring as himself.

I've made the observation that every movie Steve Buscemi physically appears in is gold. No voice work counts, because he did a voice in that terrible Disney cow movie.
