->'''[[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]]:''' You replace [[Creator/MarkHamill Luke]] [[Franchise/StarWars Skywalker]] with fucking Fred from ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo?!'' [[OhCrap Aw shit]], Matthew Lillard was in that too. It's like these chuckleheads are joined at the hip!
-->-- ''Film/WingCommander [[TheMovie Movie]] Review''

Actors A and B were highly successful last time they were in a film together. Wouldn't audiences love it even more if they starred in ''another'' film together?

In other words, this trope refers to when two actors - or, occasionally, groups of more than two - end up working together over and over for no other reason than because directors think audiences like them. Sometimes, the two are in a RealLife relationship, but that's not the reason why they're cast together; the chemistry that gives them might help, but the essential point is audience appeal.

This trope was more common in the [[GoldenAgeOfHollywood studio era]], when most actors and actresses were under contract to a particular studio, and those studios would match them up together repeatedly if they proved a success.

This doesn't apply when the actors work together over and over because they're part of a film franchise (like the kids in the Film/HarryPotter movies, for example).

!!Examples:

* Creator/FredAstaire and Creator/GingerRogers were cast as a BetaCouple in ''Film/FlyingDownToRio'', and made such an impression that they starred in eight movie musicals over the next six years. ''The Barkleys of Broadway'' brought them back together once more; Ginger Rogers had been trying to put musicals behind her, but JudyGarland was unavailable. While not so much close offscreen (as she put it, "We had fun and it shows. True, we were never bosom buddies off the screen; we were different people with different interests. We were only a couple on film"), both are even interred in the same graveyard.
* Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler appeared together in seven Creator/WarnerBros musicals between 1933 and 1936. In fact, Ruby Keeler only appeared in three other feature films, one of them pairing her with then-husband Al Jolson.
* Jeanette [=MacDonald=] and Nelson Eddy co-starred in eight Creator/{{MGM}} musicals; [=MacDonald=] had previously been paired with Creator/MauriceChevalier (mostly under Creator/ErnstLubitsch's direction) in ''The Love Parade'', ''One Hour with You'', ''Love Me Tonight'' and ''The Merry Widow''.
* Creator/MattDamon and Creator/BenAffleck both appeared in ''School Ties'' and then both became stars when they co-wrote and co-starred in ''Film/GoodWillHunting'', then co-starred again in ''Film/{{Dogma}}''. They also both appeared in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' (cameos) and Damon made cameos in Affleck vehicles ''Film/ChasingAmy'' and ''Film/JerseyGirl''. Damon's career eventually eclipsed Affleck's, to the degree that ''TheOnion'' ran [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/ben-affleck-hoping-jason-bourne-has-sidekick-in-ne,2254/ an article]] entitled "Ben Affleck Hoping [[Film/TheBourneSeries Jason Bourne]] Has Sidekick In Next Movie". Affleck's latter-day career revival with films like ''Film/TheTown'' and ''Film/{{Argo}}'' may facilitate another Ben & Matt movie one day.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' by Affleck
-->'''Jay (Jason Mewes):''' Do they say who's fuckin' playing us in the movie?
-->'''Holden (Ben Affleck):''' No, but it's Miramax. So I'm sure it'll be Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. They put those guys in a bunch of movies.
-->'''Jay:''' Who?
-->'''Holden:''' You know, those kids from ''GoodWillHunting''?
-->'''Jay:''' You mean that fuckin' movie with [[Creator/RobinWilliams Mork from Ork]] in it?
-->'''Holden:''' Yeah, I wasn't a big fan either... but Affleck was the bomb in ''{{Phantoms}}''.
-->'''Jay:''' Word, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]], ''Phantoms'' like a motherfucker.
* During TheSeventies, in Venezuela, it seemed that Lupita Ferrer and José Bardina starred in {{Soap Opera}}s as the main couple too often. That was so pervasive, that recently a producer decided to reunite them in a soap, despite Bardina having been in retirement for two decades, and Ferrer having pursued an successful career abroad.
* British actors tend to work with each other quite a bit. Watch the Harry Potter movies, then watch some other British movies and see how many of the Harry Potter actors appear together in the same movie. It can be all but guaranteed that if a British actor wasn't in a Harry Potter film themselves, they've shared a screen with someone who was -- probably several times. This phenomenon has been nicknamed "British Actor Bingo", leading to the common {{Tumblr}} wisdom that "Britain has twelve actors, six writers, three locations and ten props."
* Creator/SusanSarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri Martino have appeared in a few things together mainly as Mother and daughter. They appeared together on and episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'', the movie ''The Banger Sisters'' and currently in NBC's ''Growing Ivy'' all as mother and daughter. They both also appeared as the same character in ''ThatsMyBoy''.
* Creator/DavidSpade and Creator/ChrisFarley appeared in three movies together: ''Coneheads'', ''Film/TommyBoy'', and ''Film/BlackSheep''. If it weren't for Farley's untimely death, they might have appeared together again in ''Film/GrownUps'', whose script was put on indefinite hold after Farley's death and later filmed with Kevin James instead.
* Creator/TimAllen and Spencer Breslin, not counting the two ''[[Film/TheSantaClause Santa Clause]]'' movies, appeared together in ''Film/TheShaggyDog'' and ''Film/ZoomAcademyForSuperheroes''.
* Also Spencer Breslin has appeared in a few movies with his sister Creator/AbigailBreslin: ''RaisingHelen'', ''The Santa Clause 3'', ''The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement'' and the upcoming ''Perfect Sisters''.
* Creator/KatharineHepburn and Creator/SpencerTracy were never married, but they were together for ''decades'', and are still remembered as one of Hollywood's most famous couples. Movies they appeared in together include ''State of the Union'', ''Adam's Rib'', ''Pat and Mike'', and ''Guess Who's Coming to Dinner'', in which they play an old married couple. See the page pic for a few examples. Hepburn also costarred with Creator/CaryGrant in a number of films.
* Speaking of Creator/CaryGrant, he and Irene Dunne starred in three films together, two comedies (''Film/TheAwfulTruth'' and ''My Favorite Wife'') and one drama (''Penny Serenade'').
* Jordan Chan and Anita Yuen have a played a couple in at least 8 Hong Kong films.
* In-universe: ''Film/AmericasSweethearts'' is centered around a romantically involved movie star couple (played by Creator/JohnCusack and Creator/CatherineZetaJones) that starred in several successful movies before suddenly splitting up, forcing their publicist to maintain the illusion to promote their latest movie.
* Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes, in ''White Men Can't Jump'' and then ''Money Train''. JenniferLopez stood in for Rosie Perez.
** They first appeared together in the Goldie Hawn movie ''{{Wildcats}}'' in supporting roles.
* Creator/BenStiller and Owen Wilson seem to exist solely to appear in movies together. ''MeetTheParents'', ''Film/StarskyAndHutch'', ''NightAtTheMuseum'', ''{{Zoolander}}''....
** TheOtherWiki has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frat_Pack convenient table-thing]] for the movies these members of the "Frat Pack" have appeared in.
** Christine Taylor Stiller's Wife has appeared in a number of things opposite him. ''Zoolander'', ''Dodgeball'', and ''Arrested Development''
* Not counting the ''Thin Man'' series, William Powell and Myrna Loy were in 8 films together. Their first film together wasn't even ''Film/TheThinMan'', it was ''Manhattan Melodrama''. Counting the ''Thin Man'' series, they did a whopping 14 films together, more than any other American male and female co-stars.
* PeterLorre and Sydney Greenstreet appeared together in nine movies from 1941 to 1946, three of which starred HumphreyBogart. Bogart, Lorre and Greenstreet worked so well together on ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' that Warner Bros. would pair any combination of them or all three together, so sometimes it was Bogart and Lorre (''All Through the Night''), Bogart and Greenstreet (''Across the Pacific'', ''Conflict'') and then the aforementioned pairing.
* Jim Hutton and Paula Prentiss did five movies together in the early 1960s. (Prentiss is 5'10" and would have towered over a lot of leading men. Casting her opposite the 6'5" Hutton kept her from having to walk in a trench all the time.)
* Italian actors Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni appeared together in over a dozen films, from ''Too Bad She's Bad'' (1954) to ''Pręt-ŕ-Porter'' (1994).
* The comic duo Massimo Boldi & Christian De Sica had starred in so many movies that the Italian media called their split up a 'divorce' and the fact ''actually made it into newspaper headlines''.
* After Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny [=DeVito=] did ''Romancing the Stone'' and ''Jewel of the Nile'', which were related, they were all cast together in ''The War of the Roses'', an unrelated movie. Some fans of the two related adventure movies mistook the unrelated black comedy for the third installment of the series.
* Creator/PeterCushing and Creator/ChristopherLee not only did numerous HammerHorror films together, but a fair number of non-Hammer British horror films. They remained good friends, a fact Alan Davies lampshaded on ''Series/{{QI}}'' when he highlighted the surreality of [[Film/HorrorOfDracula Van Helsing and Dracula]] being so close. (They also were both in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' saga, but not in the same movies--by the time Lee appeared in ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', Cushing had been dead for eight years.)
* The husband and wife team of Vincent Cassel and Creator/MonicaBellucci have appeared together in the likes of ''Brotherhood of the Wolf'' (without sharing any scenes), ''Irreversible'', ''L'Appartement'' and ''Dobermann''.
* William Gaxton and Victor Moore were already established stars on Broadway in 1931, when they starred in ''OfTheeISing'', which began a partnership that lasted for fifteen years. After ''Of Thee I Sing'' and its sequel ''Let 'Em Eat Cake'', they starred in the Broadway musicals ''Theatre/AnythingGoes'', ''Leave It to Me!'', ''Louisiana Purchase'', ''Hollywood Pinafore'' and ''Nellie Bly''. They also starred with Creator/MaeWest in the 1943 movie ''The Heat's On''.
* Creator/AlfredHitchcock's ''Film/TheLadyVanishes'' had Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne, who proved such a hit as a pair of comical English twits that the pair were cast in pretty much the same roles for numerous other films in the 1940s. They actually played the ''very same characters'' in the 1940 (non-Hitchcock) thriller ''Night Train to Munich''.
* {{Bollywood}} runs on this trope and have their own name for it, {{jodi}}.
** Creator/ShahRukhKhan and Creator/{{Kajol}} in ''Bollywood/{{Baazigar}}'', ''Bollywood/DilwaleDulhaniaLeJayenge'', ''Bollywood/KuchKuchHotaHai'', ''KabhiKushiKabhieGham'', and ''Bollywood/MyNameIsKhan''.
** Creator/MadhuriDixit and Creator/AnilKapoor. Most famously in ''Beta''.
** On the buddy pairing side of things, we have Creator/AmitabhBachchan and Creator/{{Dharmendra}} in the 70's ''Bollywood/{{Sholay}}'', among others), and Creator/SaifAliKhan and Creator/AkshayKumar in the 90's and more recently, ''Tashan''.
* JohnnyDepp and Creator/HelenaBonhamCarter have emerged as the principal couple in Creator/TimBurton's ProductionPosse, appearing together (though not necessarily cast as a couple) in ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'', ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', ''SweeneyTodd'', ''Film/AliceInWonderland'', ''Film/DarkShadows'', and ''Film/TheLoneRanger''.
* Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson, more so than any other pair of [[Creator/BratPack Brat Packers]] (''TheBreakfastClub'', ''StElmosFire'', ''Blue City'')
* Creator/MasiOka and Creator/JaymaMays played across from each other in both ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' and ''Series/GetSmart: Bruce and Loyd Out of Control''.
* Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson both created and started in a number of stage productions, television shows, and movies, including ''TheYoungOnes'', ''{{Bottom}}'', ''The Dangerous Brothers'', ''FilthyRichAndCatflap'', and ''Guest House Paradiso''.
* Tony Curtis and NatalieWood appeared in three films together (''Kings Go Forth'', ''Sex and The Single Girl'', ''TheGreatRace'') even though they absolutely ''loathed'' each other in real life.
* John Cusack and Tim Robbins - although they've made few films in which they share the lead, they often cameo in each other's films.
* Also John Cusack and his sister Joan Cusack have appeared in many movies together.
** John Cusack also made seven films with Jeremy Piven. And eight with Ned Bellamy. He seems to like doing this.
** Joan Cusack has also been in three films with HaydenPanettiere - ''RaisingHelen'', ''IcePrincess'' and in a CelebrityVoiceActor capacity ''[[{{Hoodwinked}} Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil]]''.
* JamesCagney and Joan Blondell, early in their film careers; they were together in ''Sinners' Holiday'', ''Other Men's Women'', ''Film/ThePublicEnemy'', ''Blonde Crazy'', ''The Crowd Roars'', ''Film/FootlightParade'' and ''He Was Her Man'' between 1930 and 1934.
* Leon Ames and Mary Astor, most notably in ''Meet Me In St. Louis'' (1944) and ''LittleWomen'' (1949).
* DakotaFanning and Creator/KristenStewart. First as the horrifying Jane and the helpless Bella in The {{Literature/Twilight}} Saga, then as the lovers Cherie Currie and Music/JoanJett in the {{Biopic}} ''Film/TheRunaways''.
* Tommy Kirk and Kevin Corcoran were cast as brothers in five Disney movies of the late Fifties and early Sixties: ''Film/OldYeller'', ''The Shaggy Dog'', ''SwissFamilyRobinson'', ''Bon Voyage!'', and ''Savage Sam'' (where they reprised their ''Old Yeller'' roles).
* Pierre Arditi and Sabine Azéma are only good friends in real life, but you'd be forgiven for thinking they're married... Filmmakers have a thing for making these two French actors play couples. Alain Resnais pairs them in almost all of his movies and they've been either husband and wife or lovers in at the very least ten films since 1983.
* Creator/JackieChan with either Sammo Hung and/or Yuen Biao.
* Creator/LaurelAndHardy. While they were a great team onscreen and onstage, for many years, their contracts were out of synch with each other.
* Even before ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'', JohnSimm and Phil Glenister had done ''Series/StateOfPlay'' and ''Tuesday''. In 2010, they'll be back together in ''Mad Dogs''.
** They were joined by Marc Warren (Danny from ''{{Hustle}}'') in LOM, ''State of Play'' and ''Mad Dogs'', so it seems it's a trio.
* Russian comedy trio Vicin, Nikulin and Morgunov (Coward, Booby and Hardened) appeared in total of seven movies until Nikulin decided it's overdone.
* Character actor Scatman Crothers appeared with buddy JackNicholson in several films, including ''OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' and ''Film/TheShining''.
* Creator/KenichiSuzumura and Creator/MaayaSakamoto, whose characters are often in love (sometimes one-sided, sometimes reciprocated). This became HilariousInHindsight when they got married in August 2011.
* Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins of ''Film/GingerSnaps'' fame played sisters again in ''Film/AnotherCinderellaStory''.
* Creator/KevinConroy and Creator/MarkHamill: Granted they're usually playing {{Franchise/Batman}} and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, but sometimes they're not and in recent DC productions where Conroy wasn't Batman they've often got Mark Hamill to play his opposite number because they work so well together.
* Doris Day and Rock Hudson are well-known for starring together, despite only doing so in 3 movies: ''PillowTalk'', ''Lover Come Back'' and ''Send Me No Flowers'' (which all also starred Tony Randall).
* JudyGarland and Mickey Rooney first starred together in ''Thoroughbreds Don't Cry''. Over the next six years, they appeared in three movies as Betsy Booth and Andy Hardy, and also starred in the movie musicals ''Babes in Arms'', ''Strike Up the Band'', ''Babes on Broadway'' and ''Girl Crazy''.
* AdamSandler seems to love working with Creator/DrewBarrymore. Currently they have starred opposite each other in three movies. First in ''TheWeddingSinger'', second in ''FiftyFirstDates'', and finally in ''Film/{{Blended}}''.
* JimmyStewart starred in four films with Margaret Sullavan (''Next Time We Love'', ''The Shopworn Angel'', ''The Mortal Storm'', ''TheShopAroundTheCorner''), and three with June Allyson (''The Stratton Story'', ''The Glenn Miller Story'', ''Strategic Air Command'').
* Creator/LaurenBacall's first role on the screen was as HumphreyBogart's love interest in ''To Have and Have Not''. They got married and subsequently co-starred in ''Film/TheBigSleep'', ''Dark Passage'' and ''Film/KeyLargo''.
* DannyKaye and Virginia Mayo appeared together in ''Wonder Man'', ''The Kid from Brooklyn'', ''The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'' and ''A Song is Born''. Mayo also had a bit part in Kaye's first feature film, ''Up in Arms''.
* ErrolFlynn and Creator/OliviaDeHavilland were in eight films together between 1935 and 1941 -- mostly because she was one of the few women who could put up with him, but they also had fantastic chemistry and were actually very good friends. [[TwiceShy And both had unrequited crushes on each other]]. Darn.
* JeanHarlow, in her too-brief film career, starred in six movies with Creator/ClarkGable: ''The Secret Six'', ''Film/RedDust'', ''Hold Your Man'', ''China Seas'', ''Wife vs. Secretary'' and ''Saratoga''. Una Merkel co-starred in four Harlow films: ''Red-Headed Woman'', ''Bombshell'', ''Rifraff'' and ''Saratoga''.
* Creator/BetteDavis named Creator/ClaudeRains as her favorite person to work with; Rains appeared in four movies Davis starred in, playing second to Paul Henreid in ''NowVoyager'' and ''Deception''.
* Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau starred together in ''Film/TheFortuneCookie'', ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'' (1968 movie version and 1998 sequel), ''TheFrontPage'' (1974 movie version), ''Buddy Buddy'' and ''Film/GrumpyOldMen'' (and its sequel, which actually sparked a revival of the pairing for a few more movies in the '90s). They both had parts in ''Film/{{JFK}}'', but shared no screen time. After both Lemmon and Matthau passed away, they were even buried in the same graveyard, near each other.
* Creator/RichardPryor and Creator/GeneWilder did four films together: ''Film/SilverStreak'', ''Film/StirCrazy'', ''Film/SeeNoEvilHearNoEvil'', and ''AnotherYou''.
** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen And nearly five.]] Creator/MelBrooks originally intended to cast Pryor in the role of Bart in ''BlazingSaddles'' before the [[ExecutiveMeddling studio stepped in]] due to concerns over Pryor's drug use and reliability. Pryor ''did'' remain on the film as a writer, however.
* Tim Conway and Don Knotts starred together in the two ''TheAppleDumplingGang'' movies, along with ''ThePrivateEyes'' and ''ThePrizeFighter''. Both actors also appeared in ''Gus'', though they didn't share any scenes together.
* Brazilian actors Wagner Moura (best known for his role in ''TheEliteSquad'') and Lázaro Ramos, going as early as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekS27ZEAdus 1998]] and even extending to the PenelopeCruz film ''Woman on Top'' (2000).
* Creator/ScarlettJohansson and Creator/ChrisEvans have been in four films together so far: ''ThePerfectScore'', ''TheNannyDiaries'', ''Film/TheAvengers'', and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''.
* Creator/KirkDouglas and Burt Lancaster starred in six movies together: ''I Walk Alone'' (1948), ''Gunfight At The O.K. Corral'' (1957), ''The Devil's Disciple'' (1959), ''The List of Adrian Messenger'' (1963), ''Literature/SevenDaysInMay'' (1964), and ''Tough Guys'' (1986).
* Creator/AmandaSeyfried, JustinTimberlake, Vincent Kartheiser, and Creator/OliviaWilde were in ''AlphaDog'' and ''Film/InTime''.
* KateBosworth and Creator/JamesMarsden were in ''Film/SupermanReturns'' and ''Film/StrawDogs''.
* EllenPage and Maxwell [=McCabe=]-Lokos. They were in both ''The Tracey Fragments'' and ''Mouth to Mouth'' together, both times playing fucked up people on good terms with one another. In the former, [=McCabe=]-Lokos helps Page's character, and in the latter, it's the opposite.
* Italian actors Creator/BudSpencer and Creator/TerenceHill worked so well as a screen couple, they made over a dozen films together from the late 60s to the 80s. They first appeared together in the 1959 film ''Hannibal'', under their original names of Carlo Pedersoli and Mario Girotti.
* Creator/EmmaRoberts has been in three films with Creator/RoryCulkin - ''Film/{{Lymelife}}'', ''Film/{{Twelve}}'' and ''Film/{{Scream 4}}'' (the latter also counts as a reunion for Creator/MaryMcDonnell and Creator/HaydenPanettiere, as both were in the PoorlyDisguisedPilot / MadeForTVMovie ''Film/ChestnutHill'').
* Creator/RobertDeNiro and Creator/AlPacino in ''Film/TheGodfatherPartII'' (although they never appeared together in this one), ''Film/{{Heat}}'' and ''Film/RighteousKill''.
* Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Creator/KateWinslet in ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' and ''Film/RevolutionaryRoad''.
* Before their deaths, Creator/AnthonyPerkins is paired up with Creator/MartinBalsam in three movies: ''{{Film/Psycho}}'', ''Film/CatchTwentyTwo'', and ''Film/MurderOnTheOrientExpress''.
* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger is buddy with Creator/SvenOleThorsen in numerous films, including ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982'', ''Film/{{Predator}}'', ''Film/{{Eraser}}'', and ''Film/EndOfDays''.
* Creator/TomHanks and Creator/MegRyan in ''Film/JoeVersusTheVolcano'' (1990), ''Film/SleeplessInSeattle'' (1993) and ''Film/YouveGotMail'' (1998).
* Creator/BurtReynolds and Creator/DomDeLuise have a number of co-starring roles, including ''Film/TheEnd'', the second ''Film/SmokeyAndTheBandit'', ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'' and both ''Film/CannonballRun'' films. The fact that they were good friends makes this not surprising. For a lesser interpretation of "co-starring," Reynolds also played a part (as himself) in Mel Brook's ''Film/SilentMovie'', which [=DeLuise=] played a major part in.
* The two "Coreys" ''Creator/CoreyHaim'' and ''Creator/CoreyFeldman''. Their credits together include ''Film/TheLostBoys'', ''Film/LicenseToDrive'', and ''Film/DreamALittleDream''. And their RealityShow.
* Creator/KeanuReeves and Creator/SandraBullock were in ''Film/{{Speed}}'' and ''Film/TheLakeHouse''.
* Between 1942 and 1945, [[Creator/DonaldOConnor Donald O'Connor]] and Creator/PeggyRyan were in 12 movies together, not counting their guest spots in ''Film/BoweryToBroadway'' or ''Film/FollowTheBoys''. Of those 12, the first three (''[[Film/WhatsCookin What's Cookin'?]]'', ''Film/PrivateBuckaroo'', ''[[Film/GiveOutSisters Give Out, Sisters]]'') had them as mere supporting players in Andrews Sisters vehicles, and four of them also featured Creator/GloriaJean.
* Creator/RyanGosling and Creator/EmmaStone in ''Film/CrazyStupidLove'' and ''Film/GangsterSquad''.
* Creator/PeterCapaldi and Creator/AnnaChancellor in ''Fortysomething'' and ''Series/TheHour''.

* Creator/EmilyRose from ''Series/{{Haven}}'' starred with Creator/LucasBryant in ''Perfect Plan (2010)''. She also worked with Creator/NolanNorth and Creator/ClaudiaBlack in ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}''.
* ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'' examples:
** Many, many cast members also appear in ''LegendOfTheSeeker''.
** Manu Bennett (Crixus) was in an episode of ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'', where his character has an affair with Xena, just like Crixus has an affair with Lucretia, played by Creator/LucyLawless.
** Creator/VivaBianca (Ilithyia) and Creator/HannaManganLawrence (Seppia) starred in ''X (2011)''.
* Creator/JamesFranco and Creator/MilaKunis are in ''Film/DateNight'', ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'', ''Tar'' and ''Third Person''.
* Creator/FrankSinatra and Creator/GeneKelly in the musicals ''Film/AnchorsAweigh'', ''{{On the Town}}'', and ''Take Me Out to The Ball Game''.
* Creator/BreckinMeyer and Creator/AmySmart played a couple in ''Film/RoadTrip'' and ''Film/RatRace''.
* The success of ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'' was in large part due to the chemistry between leads Creator/PaulNewman and Creator/RobertRedford. Little wonder they were paired again in ''Film/TheSting''.
* The box office value of film pairings such as these was established early on, as recognized by the in-universe example of Don Lockwood & Lina Lamont from Singin' in the Rain.
* Creator/JenniferConnelly and Creator/RussellCrowe in ''Film/ABeautifulMind'' and two upcoming films, ''Winter's Tale'' and ''Noah''.
** Russell also worked with Creator/PaulBettany in ''Film/ABeautifulMind'' and ''Film/MasterAndCommander''.
* Ever since ''SilverLiningsPlaybook'', Creator/JenniferLawrence and Creator/BradleyCooper are in ''Film/AmericanHustle'' and ''Film/{{Serena}}''.
* Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson, in both Zombieland and Film/NowYouSeeMe
* Creator/MarkWahlberg and Creator/MilaKunis appeared in ''Film/MaxPayne'', ''Film/DateNight'' and ''Film/{{Ted}}''.
* Other than the two live-action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movies, Creator/MatthewLillard and [[Creator/FreddiePrinzeJr FreddiePrinze, Jr]] worked together on ''Film/ShesAllThat'', ''Film/WingCommander'' and ''Film/SummerCatch''.
* Creator/AlanRickman and Creator/EmmaThompson in ''Film/SenseAndSensibility'', ''Film/LoveActually'', ''Film/JudasKis'', ''Film/HarryPotter'' movies and ''Theatre/TheWinterGuest'' (which Alan directed and made a cameo).
* Former husband and wife Creator/KennethBranagh and Creator/EmmaThompson did multiple films together during their marriage: ''Henry V'', ''Dead Again'', ''Much Ado About Nothing'' and ''Peter's Friends'', as well as the TV series ''Fortunes of War'' (which came before their marriage). They both appeared in the ''Harry Potter'' series, but not in the same movie: Branagh's lone appearance was in the second film, while Emma Thompson joined the series starting with the next film.
* Creator/JamesFranco and Creator/MilaKunis have appeared together "Film/DateNight", "Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful", Tar, and Third Person. (Also, a WebVideo/FunnyOrDie short called "The Hills with James Franco and Mila Kunis.")
* Creator/SimonPegg and Creator/NickFrost have been in four films together: ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', ''Film/HotFuzz'', ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', and ''Film/{{Paul}}'', as well as the television series ''Film/{{Spaced}}''. They also starred together in a WebOriginal/CollegeHumor sketch, where they played [[Franchise/StarWars R2-D2 and C-3PO]]. In ''Film/{{TheAdventuresOfTintin}}'' they played the twins Thompson and Thomson.
* Although their partnership was tragically cut short, JohnBelushi and DanAykroyd made three films together (''1941'', ''Neighbors'' and ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'') and would certainly have gone on to do more - had he lived, Belushi would have been in at least two more films with Aykroyd (he would have been in ''The Blues Brothers'' sequel and played Venkman in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''). Hell, at one point, Creator/MartinScorsese wanted them to be in ''GangsOfNewYork'' together. (Yes, Scorsese has been working on the idea ''that long''.)
** Fellow SNL alumni and frequent co-collaborators HaroldRamis and BillMurray were also this early in their careers.
* The release of ''Dolphin Tale 2'' in 2014 will mark the fifth film that Ashley Judd and Creator/MorganFreeman have both appeared in (the others are ''Film/KissTheGirls'', ''High Crimes'', ''Film/DolphinTale'' and ''Film/OlympusHasFallen'').
