You can approach this three ways:

1) who is in lots of movies as to not get bored?
2) who is the most frequently occurring actor in movies I like?
3) what actor will I not get bored of.


The answer to all of those is Bruce Willis.

Probably what I based mine off of the most. That and does he cover multiple genres. 100 dramas would get old.

I wouldn't go that far. Mainly because I'm not crazy about the Die Hard movies. But Sin City would be huge for me. Fifth Element would be huge for you
