The Ten Most Prolific Actors of the Last Five Years

When the idea to put together a list of the 10 most prolific actors over the last five years occurred to me, I figured: Nic Cage -- Bam. Number one. John Travolta, Christopher Walken, and maybe DeNiro would round out the top five. After spending a few hours on iMDB, I was surprised to learn that none of those guys even broke the top 20. Most of the top 10, in fact, are made up for faces you know better than the names -- character actors. People you see everywhere you look, but rarely give a second thought to.

The criteria was as follows: Voice work counted (on films), as did cameo appearances, and television movies. However, appearances on television series did not count, which makes many on the list even more impressive considering how many credits they had excluded because they were on TV. Only credits from 2004 - 2009 were counted.

Honorable mentions: Bruce Willis, Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, John Hill, and Donal Logue.
