MovieQuiz 3374 (closed)

Vagebond's Christmas 2013 Special [3/5]

Anyone can join!

The images below show a set of (tv)movies and a set of actors/actresses.
Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to use the actors (m/f) to connect the movies.

in this example the link between the movies State of Play and RED is Helen Mirren because she appeared in the cast of both movies.

The list of 72 movies:
2 of which are tv-movies: Fail Safe (2000) and Witness Protection (1999)
FunFact: the order of the above movies is the same order I watched them in a few years ago.

In random order: 
the list of actors/actresses you need to connect the above movies:
For recognizability purposes most of these images have been taken from their IMDb home pages.

All shown actors/actresses have been used as a link; a few have been used multiple times to link/connect movies.

To collect 100 points for the Regular Hall of Fame you have to submit the name of only one actor/actress: the one that has been used the most as a link between movies.

Still confused? Here's a 'How to Solve' summary:
Start by comparing the IMDb cast info of movie 001 (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) and movie 002 (Billy Elliot). Find an actor/actress that appears in the cast of both movies AND is shown in the thumbnails at this page. Write down that name.
Proceed with comparing movie 002 (Billy Elliot) and movie 003 (Gangs of New York) to find the actor/actress that links these movies AND is shown in the thumbnails.
After you've found the 71 links between the 72 movies you'll see that one actor/actress has provided the most links. That name is the final solution you have to submit.

To receive 100 points for the HoF your submitted answer has to be correct (duh!). Multiple guesses are allowed - but will result in a penalty: for every wrong guess you submit, 10 points will be substracted from the maximum score. It's to prevent endless, wild guessing. So if you got it right in your third guess you will be rewarded with 80 points instead of the full 100.
