Starting in his bedroom and now Hollywood use him to cast for some films. Genius. I use everytime I'm watching a film to see what other have this actor or "who's that bloke again" reviews are helpfull and informative. Top class
This is a wonderful database of films and not only in English language. I often pop in there for films info which is nicely displayed with all the details you need to know or almost. If I had spare money I would pay for their membership so to contribute to their site.
This is a comprehensive site standing for the Internet Movie Database and has become very popular amongst the proletariat as well as the executive in recent years.
But, as massively successful sites are wont to do (Facebook!), they become a victim of their own success and have been criticised in a number of areas in the past, most recently for publishing ages of actors without their consent.
You might say WGAF but actually, it's an important factor when casting agents, well, cast so it becomes an accepted grey area and actors may find it useful to misrepresent themselves occassionally.
There has also been allegations of the site refusing to 'display' and therefore advertise certain films.
Still, if ever you recognise an actor but can't get his name off the tip off yer tongue then IMDB (or Wiki) will be there for you to put yer out of yer misery.
They have everything I need to satisfy my movie trivia thirst, movie updates and reviews and even news on upcoming titles or rumors. Absolutely everything i need for movies and actors. As a huge fan of film I LOVE this site!
IMDB is exactly what it claims to be, the movie database. Want to know about some obscure movie from 1987? Who played Merlin behind Tom Cruise in Top Gun? Who directed Das Boot? It's all there with easy to follow links and lists of upcoming movies for actors so you know what's coming at the box office.
