UPDATED OCTOBER 2017

I don't know if these actors/actresses are the directors' personal favorites; but by taking a look at their filmographies it's clear who their favorites are professionally...

(In no particular order)



A quick summary:
Directors tend to like themselves the most.


Please feel free to add any suggestions for actors whom I have missed, thank you and Enjoy!

I don't get how a director get really direct a movie when they're playing the starring role and in nearly every scene, like Eastwood and Woody Allen. "Hey Woody, you need to be looking to the left and act like you've just lost someone you love" "Got it, Woody" "Hey, I'm the director, you call me Woodrow"

Great List!
Ace in the Hole was directed by Billy Wilder, not Vincente Minnelli.

Michael Gough was in Tim Burton's Batman, Batman Returns, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride and Alice in Wonderland.
Lisa Marie was also in four: Ed Wood, Mars Attacks!, Sleepy Hollow and Planet of the Apes.
He has other recurrent actors that were in more than two of his movies (Danny DeVito, Paul Reubens, etc.)

You totally have to add David Lynch! :)
Harry Dean Stanton was in The Cowboy and the Frenchman, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Hotel Room, The Straight Story and Inland Empire.
Kyle MacLachlan was in Dune, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and Twin Peaks (TV).
Jack Nance was in Eraserhead, Dune, Blue Velvet, The Cowboy and the Frenchman, Wild at Heart and Lost Highway and Twin Peaks.
Grace Zabriskie was in Twin Peaks, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Wild at Heart and Inland Empire.
Angelo Badalamenti who wrote the music for a lot of his films, also appeared in Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Wild at Heart, On the Air, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive.
...to name a few!
And the man himself appeared in Dune, Twin Peaks (tv and movie) and Lost Highway (and The Amputee)

I agree with Cédric Klapisch-Romain Duris.

Steve Buscemi is also in the segment of "Paris, je t'aime" called "Tuileries" which is directed by the Coen brothers.

Zhang yimou also casts Gong li alot:
Raise the Red Lantern
The Story of Qiu Ju
To Live
Shanghai Triad
Curse of the Golden Flower

And Wong Kar wai's filmography is crazy i know, but you could at least include Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung. There's an awesome grid of this on his en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wong_Kar-wai

:D YOU HAVE AN AMAZING LIST BTW

In case it hasn't already been mentioned, Seth Rogan was also on Judd Apatow's brain-child Freaks and Geeks. If you're counting TV shows.

I love this list! WELL DONE!

I think directors use the same actors over again because they get along and are reliable.
