Which actor appears most often in your DVD collection?

I'm wondering if there's a website/resource on-line where I can type in all the titles in my DVD collection and it will tell me which actors/actresses appear most often in my collection. Anyone know of such a site? I thought the "my movies" section on imdb might do it, but I can't find that it does.

Any ideas?

Don't know any websites to help you out, but to answer the question in the thread title:

Schwarzenegger, probably. His run of movies from Conan the Barbarian through True Lies is great, and I own several of them. Then he jumped the shark with Junior and after that, well, T3 is the only halfway decent thing he starred in after that.

Usually the TV shows skew my results big time. I think Michael Dorn is up towards the top between ST:TNG, ST: DS9 and the TNG films.

Film-wise, Tom Hanks seems to be the big one for me. And I don't even own The Man With One Red Shoe!

I think dvd spot does something like that

I remember Guzzlefish used to have some great stats.

Matt Damon is #1, Followed by Ben Affleck

I was going to say, a slightly uncredited role in the Yakuza Papers film might be forgiveable ... but I have no excuse for missing Graveyard ...

Thanks ....
