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

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

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.

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.

all the charactrs rocks... n the movie was awesome...

I knew it'd be on top 5. All the legendary actors were here. - zxm

2 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 best cast ever. They fit together so well. You really could believe that they were saving the world together. - LadyLioness

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!

When you have viggo mortenson, orlando bloom, hugo weaving, ian mckellen, cate blanchett, elijah wood, and liv tyler, it is incomparable

Goog god, I love this cast

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

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

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

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

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

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

this is possibly one of the best movies ever!

While Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, and Tom Cruise were good, the rest were rather bad itle meh. I'll probably post a review of this movie soon. - RalphBob

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

I like Ocean's Eleven with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack - beatles5

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

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

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

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

Why the hell is Tom hiddleston not here

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

Some might also add Cobie Smulders, Stan Lee and Gwyneth Paltrow to the ensemble

Josh Brolin?

8 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

9 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.

What a great cast this is. - Bman23

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

Best cast ever, love 'em all!

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

"Not as many stars as some other movies" -what planet are you living on? THIS IS A PROPER ALL STAR CAST - ONLY TOWERING INFERNO MATCHES IT

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. - zxm

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

You forgot Michael Caine - FredTheGooner
