hes never in a starring role but still recognizable (kinda like gary busey)

Ahem.... it's a little-known fact that Gary Busey played the title role in THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY (and did a damn good job of it too, as I recall) 8)

Here's a non-Douglas solution to the Sutherland problem:

Donald Sutherland starred in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" with Leonard Nimoy
Nimoy starred in "Star Trek" with George Takei
Takei appeared in "The Green Berets" with John Wayne
Wayne got killed by a squid in "Reap the Wild Wind"

Well done! (I had no idea that Takei was in THE GREEN BERETS, but I remember reading about REAP THE WILD WIND in the Ellis book SEARCH FOR THE G.S.)

Taningia, the elliptical structure of your sequence is quite lovely.

:oops: Why thank you, Clem -- a were-squid always appreciates a compliment on her elliptical structure.

Juliette Binoche's great grand-mother owned a cat named George.
George Lumiere made film about an pioneering early trip to the moon.
The Moon was depicted as exploding in the new version of the 'Time Machine'.
The first version of the Time Machine had interesting Morlocks.
The Morlocks also appeared in the X-Men comic.
Patrick Stewart, Prof X, has never appeared in a film with Juliette Binoche.

See, easy!

very nice....that was most of my original path, the only more direct way i could think of was :

macy with rip torn in 'down periscope'
rip torn in 'men in black' (squid baby)

WK,

Ouch. So much for my dreams of concision.

Here's one I can't work out, and though he came to film via a circuitous route, he was a movie star:

Frank Sinatra.

i almost suggested him earlier... ignoring the 'from here to eternity' path (the one i used earlier)... this took me awhile, and i can say its a miracle i remebered one that helped out....

sinatra - shirley maclain in 'oceans eleven'
maclain - richard dreyfuss in 'postcards from the edge'
dreyfuss - robert shaw in 'jaws'
shaw in the deep
