I was thinking Danny Trejo was about to qualify, with Spy Kids & Mariachi/Desperado, but checked IMDb and he wasn't in El Mariachi. But then I noticed he was in all three Dusk Til Dawn's, even though 2 & 3 were direct to video.

Thought of another Spy Kids related one (can't tell I saw #3 today, can you :D) - Cheech Marin, for Spy Kids & the Cheech & Chong movies.

Do you mean his "man with no name" movies? I don't think Josey Wales really falls in with those. I guess you can count Fistful of Dollars/For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly though...?

True he was only in the original Josie Wales film.

John Cleese in

Harry Potter (third one next summer)
Python movies

If Python movies are a stretch, wait a bit for the next Bond movie ...

Very old thread but this one just came to mind.

Tim Allen in the Toy Story and Santa Clause trilogies.

I hadn't seen this thread until knarf posted. Having read through it all, I'd be inclined to disqualify series films (planned for more than 3) as "trilogy" films.
If topic were altered to be something like, "Actors with multiple recurring roles in film," then most of the preceding apply.

Good call on Tim Allen, though.

So, then Tom Hanks will make it when The Lost Symbol is released.
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

At this point, Bruce Campbell would technically qualify for his cameos in Spiderman.

Definitely. Thought about that while on the treadmill this afternoon. "Oooooooh, yeah."

I don't think Ken Jennings has been in any trilogies.

I don't think I saw Matty Damon listed for the Bourne and Oceans movies.

(Or does that fourth Bourne movie nullify that?)

---------------

What about Gary Oldman for Batman and Harry Potter?

(Again, I'm unclear about the number of appearances needed.)


---------------

Michael Sheen for Underworld and Twilight?!?!?
He was only in 3 of 4 Underworld movies, but that's still 3 movies, though not sequential, but there were 5 Twilight movies based on only 4 books, so he sorta has some bonus points coming or something, I think, like extra Twilight credit which can be applied to Underworld.

If this were renamed something like "Multi-Series* Actors" (* where series is a sequence of movies with 3 or more films), they'd probably all be legit. Either way, all interesting examples, I'd say.

(Sheen did appear in three Twilight movies, but, arguably** the last two movies are halves of one whole.)

So Matty Damon did fit for a time before Bourne Legacy, but then was retroactively nullified. If that's the case, can we really count Harrison Ford?

Almost. There are three Star Wars films (I discount the Holiday Special as it was a TV special), so he's halfway there; I think his most likely way into the club would be if they made a third Indiana Jones film.
