6 Degrees of Judd Apatow Separation: Actors that appear in at least 2 films together?

Can anyone name the typical Judd Appatow actors that have been in at least two other films/tv shows together? Are there any more films missing from this list that have a bunch of the Appatow actors together in a film?

Where the fuck are Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Heavyweights, and Drillbit Taylor on your list? You know, as those were actual films where Judd Apatow was involved. All contain cast members that feature Apatow regulars, and two of them, are special to the Apatow legacy as that's where Apatow started to meet people who he would take with them for the long haul.

Oh yeah, can't forget about You Don't Mess with the Zohan.

Or you could've looked at the IMDB to begin with in the first place for Apatow-produced films first?

This is going to be a long post as there's A LOT of people who make it throughout the various Apatow productions. It doesn't help that Apatow is also friends with a majority of the people involved with The State. With that logic, The Ten and Reno 911! Miami also need to be on this list.

Okay. Let's just change gears then.

How 'bout that Judd Apatow team, always use the same cast, eh? Yep'. Sure would be neato to see him change it up.

I bet Apataow could do a great comedy without one of his usual cast members, but either way, i would rather see his usual troupe...

If Kevin Bacon ever stared in a Judd Apatow film his game would be cut down to 2 degrees of seperation.

It's like the rule that every Hollywood comedy must contain one of the following actors:

Will Farrell
Vince Vaughn
Steve Carell
Paul Rudd
Luke Wilson
Owen Wilson
Jack Black
Ben Stiller

Anchorman had seven of them! But know Apatow is trying to add Seth Rogen...

Re: 6 Degrees of Judd Apatow Separation: Actors that appear in at least 2 films toget

My bigger question is why hasn't Craig Robinson been a lead actor in any of Apatow's stuff, he def one of the funniest.

I read that Apatow in the early stages of writing This Is 40 thought about putting her in a small role in the movie because it would only make sense she would see her sister at her 40th birthday but Heigl wanted like 2 million dollars for about a four minute scene so he had to rewrite it. If she wasn't so difficult I'm sure Apatow would put her in other stuff.

OMFG. I love Robinson. He's fucking funny. Still haven't seen that one where he plays Satan though. That looked iffy but he looked funny.
