Greatest Movie Casts of All Time

The greatest collections of talent in a single movie. Does not include actors who played themselves.

The Top Ten

The Departed - Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen The Departed - Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen Product Image

This is my favorite Scorsese movie. He is maybe the greatest director to ever live, and this movie really went above and beyond. Leo and Nicholson are two of the all time greats, and Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg aren't as good, but they are still both amazing actors who deserve and Oscar.

Best gangster movie and cast ever. Jack Nicholson was the best part of the movie, he's just so amazing! This should be number 1! Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon are also awesome but no one comes close to Jack Nicholson.

Dicaprio, damon, nickolson are enough! We do not need 10 big names like oceans twelve or eleven... 3 are enough! I think the best perfomance at movie is Dicaprios... A real talent and the actor with the best filmography... Damon does his best and Nickolson is a legend...

Best movie of all time. The cast was excellent. However, I think Morgan Freeman should have made an appearance.

The Return of the King - Sean Astin, Sean Bean, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Liv Tyler, Elijah Wood, Ian Holm, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, Dominic Monaghan The Return of the King - Sean Astin, Sean Bean, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Liv Tyler, Elijah Wood, Ian Holm, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, Dominic Monaghan Product Image

Everyone in these movies became like a family. The members of the Fellowship became incredibly close and are still good friends to this day. The cast do a fantastic job of portraying their characters and they fit together so well. They all gave their everything into making the movies to the best they could be.

They are my favourite cast ever and I think all the actors played their parts so well even though there were so many expectations for them to do well! My favorite cast and also my favourite movies too! They are all awesome and amazing!

The Best cast. It also includes The Two Towers and The Fellowship of The Ring, because they have the same cast members. So not The Return Of The King But The Lord Of The Rings.

This cast is absolutely perfect. They do such a good job, and if you watched the movies after reading the books, you would notice that each cast member fits so perfectly into their roles it's shocking. This would be a good movie without this cast... but with this cast it's the best movie in the world.

Pirates of The Caribbean - Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Kiera Knightely, Geoffrey Rush Pirates of The Caribbean - Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Kiera Knightely, Geoffrey Rush Product Image

Its just gotta be the best cast of any movie ever in the history of movies!

How is this #4?! There's 20 movies below that are better casts

The movie is really interesting

The Outsiders - Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, C. Thomas Howell, Leif Garrett The Outsiders - Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, C. Thomas Howell, Leif Garrett Product Image

One reason I think that this is one of the best casting jobs ever is that this, of course, isn’t the best films for any of these actors, is that after this, Cruise, Dillon, Lowe, Swayze, Lane, and Macchio started getting casted for unforgettable roles and legends in their own right (sort of).

It is laughable that any cast is placed above this... Although we have very short memories. Oceans eleven is the closest.

The amazing thing about this cast is that they were able to find so many big name actors before they were famous.

Best cast ever? Probably. The best casting job ever? Definitely. The whole movie was done on a $10 mil budget. Incredible.

The Avengers - Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L Jackson

Number 11! This one has the biggest stars ever! Come on Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johanssen!

Honestly, THE MCU makes some of the all-time casting decisions. This should be no.3, at least.

Very few films have an ensamble as good as this one with all perfectly well cast

Why the hell is Tom hiddleston not here

The Dark Knight - Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman, Michael Cain, Eric Roberts

Unbelievable movie with a great cast. And come on... You can't argue that Heath Ledger is one of the greatest actors in our time. RIP Heath, your talent is truely missed.

The superhero movie with no cheese, amazing acting and the imperfect villain and imperfect hero

God rest your soul Heath Ledger, that posthumous Oscar was so deserved!

One of the best movies ever and without a doubt one of the best casts!

Ocean's Twelve - Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, Matt Damon, Carl Reiner, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle Ocean's Twelve - Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia,  Matt Damon, Carl Reiner, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle Product Image

gu everyone who has ever seen this movie knows that this cast is so freakin unbelivable entertaining! there is nothig like them! even though the return is my favorite movie, I gotta say that this cast is a little bit better, sorry

Clooney, Pitt, Julia Roberts, Damon, beta Jones... Wow

The Expendables - Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gary Daniels, Eric Roberts, Charisma Carpenter, David Zayaz, Giselle Itie

Cast may be good but the movie wasn't that great.

Rambo, Terminator and John Mclane all in one film

you have some of the best action movie actors ever in one film

The Italian Job - Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, Edward Norton, Seth Green, Jason Statham, Mos Def, Donald Sutherland
Black Hawk Down -Josh Hartnett, Tom Sizemore, Sam Shepard, Ewan McGregor, Eric Bana, Jeremy Piven, Ron Eldard, William Fitchner, Ewan Bremmer

And Orlando bloom he's not in for long but he's still in it

You forgot Tom Hardy

Jaime Lannister!

The Contenders

The Hunger Games - Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Lenny Kravitz, Toby Jones, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Alexander Ludwig

This should be in the top ten. As Jen, Josh and Liam said, very dark movie but very light set. The cast are really bonding with each other. Definitely a great movie, great casting, awesome director, awesome friendship. Name it all!

A cast of young up and coming hot talent including Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence Isabelle Furhman, Amanda Stenberg, Leven Rambin and Alexander Ludwig among others.

Tropic Thunder - Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr, and Tom Cruise. Tropic Thunder - Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr, and Tom Cruise. Product Image

It also stars Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Nick Nolte, Bill Hader, Matthew McConagheh (I can't spell his name), Brandon so Hoo, Steve Coogan, and Danny McBride.

Saving Private Ryan - Tom Hanks,Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, Adam Goldberg, Jeremy Davies, Matt Damon

Young actors who grew famous. Similar situation as The Outsiders, where there were a slew of great actors today, who were not yet famous at the time.

Should be higher. Though many of them are't that much of famous. But the acted very good.

Also Bryan Cranston, but totally agree with this

Mars Attacks - Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Natalie Portman, Jack Black, Christina Applegate, Pam Grier Mars Attacks - Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Natalie Portman, Jack Black, Christina Applegate, Pam Grier Product Image

Give me one reason why anythings better

Why ten this is the best one

And Paul Winfield (1973 Academy Award Nomination), Joe Don Baker, Sylvia Sidney ( Academy Award nomination for her supporting role in Summer Wishes Winter Dreams)

this movie has all these awesome stars but 1 problem...
THIS MOVIE IS COMPLETE CRAP!

The Boondock Saints II:all Saints Day - Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly, Clifton Collins Jr., Judd Nelson, Julie Benz, Peter Fonda and William Dafoe
Iron Man - Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrance Howard, Jeff Bridges, Paul Bettany
Inception - Leo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Ken Wanatabe, Michael Caine

Best casting I have ever seen, amazing movie

A Bridge Too Far - James Caan, Sean Connery, Gene Hackman, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Robert Redford, Elliot Gould, Ryan O'Neal, Maximilian Schell A Bridge Too Far - James Caan, Sean Connery, Gene Hackman, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Robert Redford, Elliot Gould, Ryan O'Neal, Maximilian Schell Product Image

A bunch of has beens... History in the making...! You can watch this movie 100 times and still be entertained.
It was real then and not like it today... And not sure what is real and you always question the reality of the film making.
Elvis. Jackson, and the Beatles... Films have that maker of time too... And we forget to recognise this.
I bench mark my life as to what movies were made when and what I was doing at that time.
Movies are a great piece of art and everyone involved in the process should be recognised of their contribution to other peoples lives...!
Movies & Music make the World go around... Not money..

Probably the best cast of all, but an older movie "Robin and the Seven Hoods", with Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Sammy Davies Jnr, Peter Falk and Edward G Robinson runs it mighty close...

Michael Caine? When I watched this I didn't know most of these actors. But after few years I realized I had seen one of the best casts of all time.

Not as many stars as some other movies, but it definitely makes up for it with the quality of the individual actors.

Pulp Fiction - John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Eric Stoltz, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Phil Lamarr, Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken

Not a single weak link. Everyone does their character complete justice. Pulp Fiction is the type of movie that's almost impossible to pull off, but everyone gives their character humanism, complexion, and the appropriate amount of mystery. It's one of those movies where you can barely tell that the cast is acting, as they practically live the role. The fact that Samuel L. didn't get an oscar for that role is still a travesty.

Best cast ever, love 'em all!

What a great cast this is.

how can no one see that this is the best cast.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Tom Felton, Alan Rickman, Gary Oldman, Michael Gambon, David Thewlis, Timothy Spall, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson

I know it sounds prejudiced but so many of the successful English actors are classically trained in theater and the quality of their performances are truly impressive. None more so than in the entire Harry Potter series.

Boogie Nights - Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, Don Cheadle, Luis Guzman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Heather Graham, William H. Macy, Alfred Molina, Philip Baker Hall, Ricky Jay
The World's End - Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike The World's End - Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike Product Image
The Godfather - Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Abe Vigoda The Godfather - Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Abe Vigoda Product Image

How is this not higher? Three nominations for best supporting actor and brando winning best actor. Definitely should be top 10.

Marlon Brando, Al pacino, Robert Deniro these three alone best combo of all time

Marlon Brando and Al Pacino is enough for this movie.

Obviously the best for anyone who knows movies.

Interview with the Vampire - Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas, Kirsten Dunst, Christian Slater, Thandie Newton
Jackass 3D - Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, Bam Margera, Danger Ehren, Ryan Dunn, Dave England, Preston Lacy, Chris Pontius, Manny Puig, Sean William Scott

These guys are complete lunatics, but that's why we love them. With the Jackass crew there's no limit as to what can happen.
