* Possibly because it's a {{Biopic}} incorporating several RealLife all-stars, ''Film/TheLifeAndDeathOfPeterSellers'' had Creator/GeoffreyRush in the title role, with EmilyWatson (as Sellers' first wife), Creator/CharlizeTheron (as Creator/BrittEkland), Stanley Tucci (as Creator/StanleyKubrick), John Lithgow (as Creator/BlakeEdwards), Creator/StephenFry (as a medium Sellers frequently consulted), and Miriam Margolyes (as Sellers' mother) in the key supporting parts. Steve Pemberton and Edward Tudor-Pole had minor roles as his fellow [[Radio/TheGoonShow Goons]], and supermodel Heidi Klum had a cameo as Ursula Andress.

* Creator/FrancisFordCoppola's ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' does sport an amazing array of big names. GaryOldman as the Count is just the tip of the iceberg. AnthonyHopkins plays vampire slayer Van Helsing, with WinonaRyder as Mina Harker, and Creator/KeanuReeves as Jonathan Harker (a part that Coppola planned to give Creator/JohnnyDepp before the studio intervened). The supporting cast has Cary Elwes, Music/TomWaits, Creator/RichardEGrant, Billy Campbell, and a brief appearance by a VERY nude Creator/MonicaBellucci.

* The intersection of films and songs is of course concert movies, and Creator/MartinScorsese's ''The Last Waltz'', which documented and celebrated the last performance of Music/TheBand, assembled a murderer's row of talent. Aside from the group themselves, there were performances from Music/EricClapton, Music/JoniMitchell, Music/NeilYoung, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Dr. John, Paul Butterfield, and Bobby Charles ([[WTHCastingAgency Neil Diamond]] too, but we don't like to talk about him)--and of course, a set by Music/BobDylan, who brought The Band to prominence as his backing group before they went solo. Oh, and just for completeness sake, the last song adds in [[Music/TheBeatles Ringo Starr]] and [[Music/TheRollingStones Ron Wood]] as backing musicians.

* In a slight inversion of this, the main characters of ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' included Creator/SteveMcQueen, Creator/CharlesBronson, Creator/JamesCoburn, Creator/EliWallach and Creator/RobertVaughn -- but at the time the film was made, only Creator/YulBrynner was really an established star.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' became probably the best modern use of this. Like Creator/{{Pixar}}, he was concerned with casting talent over name. It just happened that a lot of the talent cast were seasoned name actors. Scarecrow and Two-Face probably had the least famous actors cast in the major roles (Cillian Murphy and Aaron Eckhart, respectively), but again, it was their talent.

* Uwe Boll's versions of ''Film/BloodRayne'' and ''DungeonSiege''. Sadly, neither achieved the same goal as the rest of the movies listed here.



* There is a Creator/DisneyChannel Original Movie called ''Dadnapped'', featuring Creator/EmilyOsment, [[Series/KickinIt Jason Earles]] and Moises Arias from ''Series/HannahMontana'', Creator/JenniferStone and David Henrie from ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', and Phill Lewis from ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''.



* ''The Stolen Jools'', a 1931 crime spoof that featured cameos from the likes of Edward G. Robinson, Joan Crawford, Creator/BusterKeaton, Creator/LaurelAndHardy, Film/TheLittleRascals, Loretta Young, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and about 30-40 other big name actors.

For the character-actor inclined among us, there's also Michael Wincott, Rockets Redglare, Michael Badalucco and a cameo from pre-name SamRockwell.

* The ContinuityReboot of the ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' series actually billed itself on its name talent, which included people like Creator/ElijahWood, Creator/GaryOldman, David Spade and Wayne Brady in its primary roles. Even the minor roles tended to be filled with well-known (among voice acting afficionados) cartoon voice actors.



* ''Yellowbeard'' (1983), a pirate comedy, had [[Creator/MontyPython Graham Chapman]] in the title role, and a colorful lineup of comic and character actors supporting him: in alphabetical order, Peter Boyle, Cheech & Chong, John Cleese, Peter Cook, Marty Feldman, Michael Hordern, Eric Idle, Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars, James Mason, Spike Milligan, and Beryl Reid.
