Sorry for bringing this old topic up, but would it be possible to go one step
further with the cast info screen to link actors between movies and provide
search capabilities, so you can see what other movies in your collection a
particular actor plays in.
Similar to what MyMovies does - http://www.mymovies.name/screenshots/mediacenter2005.aspx
See there example screenshots with Matt Damon and Quentin Tarantino.
