A little while ago I wrote some terrible code which took data from themoviedb.org and pulled all the actors you listed found every film they’d been involved in. The original idea was to produce maps a little like the fabulous Tube map (which I’ve always had a bit of a love for). It turned out that making the things that look like the tube map is hard, but the data was interesting. Specifically what was interesting was were actors turned out to have been in numerous films together.
Originally I used GraphViz to produce some slightly clunky maps, but it turned out D3 Force Graphs were easy enough to implement and pretty. I’ve published the Python script I used to pull data across.comments powered by Disqus
