Have you ever seen two actors share so much chemistry that it makes you wish they starred in a film together? Or have you ever just daydreamed about certain stars collaborating on a project? It often feels like wishful thinking because generally, celebrities don't always have control over who they work with. When a casting team makes their final decisions, there's no guarantee that they'll wind up with actors who share similar backgrounds or already have the perfect chemistry - and that's understandable!
However, it would be pretty epic to see our favorites together on the big screen, from real-life BFFs to actors who could literally pass for twins. We don't know about you guys, but a small part of us has faith that at least a few of these pairings will eventually happen. Until then, though, check out which famous actors seriously need to do a movie together.
This one might sound like a stretch since Nina does more mature roles and Victoria is best known for her work with Nickelodeon, but hear us out. Victoria has a knack for comedy, as we've seen with The Outcasts, Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List and her hit show, Victorious. But Nina has also appeared in a few comedies of her own, including Let's Be Cops and Crash Pad. Since both have experience in the genre and they share a bit of a resemblance (major), we can totally see them playing sisters in a rom-com drama.
Remember how everyone's hearts exploded when the two Ryans met and hung at the People's Choice Awards in 2016? Well, just imagine how insane it would be if we got to see their gorgeous faces in an entire film. Since they're both accomplished actors who've done a variety of genres, including action, comedy, romance, and drama, the possibilities for them are endless. If we could choose, though, we'd love to see these guys star in a laugh-out-loud comedy like The In-Laws or The Proposal. Still, whether it's a coming-of-age film or a classic rom-com, seeing these two share the big screen would definitely make audiences lose it.
Did you know that it was Jennifer Lawrence who convinced Shailene to star in Divergent? The actress was actually planning to turn down that role without a second thought until J. Law sent her a series of emails encouraging her to go for it (thank goodness she persisted!). These two may not necessarily be BFFs in real life, but this alone feels like a sign that these ladies would work well together. Most of you are probably considering a YA-themed flick since both actresses garnered tons of fame through major YA adaptations. However, both of them have proven to be so much more than just the face of The Hunger Games or Divergent. As far as we're concerned, they could pull off almost any genre.
Though both ladies have established themselves as versatile actors by now, it's no secret that they dominated in the rom-com area. Anne Hathaway is still pretty well known for her role as Princess Mia in The Princess Diaries and Reese Witherspoon's Legally Bloonde is a beloved classic to this day. Considering their long track records and comedic talent, it would be so fascinating to see their chemistry on the big screen, especially for a comedy film. Anyone else seriously wishing for a Devil Wears Prada-esque movie starring these two beauties?
We can't be the only ones who see a huge resemblance between these two. In fact, if they were around the same age, they could honestly pass for twins. The Breaking Bad star and Michael Fassbender, whose projects include Steve Jobs and Inglourious Basterds, have met once before at the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2016. To this day, a part of us is still hoping that they at least discussed the possibility of working together as father and son on screen. We could definitely see them starring in a gripping drama, mystery or thriller.
Not only are they brilliant comediennes, they're also among the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. Director and producer Judd ApatowL actually worked with both of them on their most memorable comedies, Bridesmaids and Trainwreck. So the fact that they have yet to work on a single project together is kind of insane.
Rumor has it, though, that the two have been trying to land the right project together for at least a year. Sources have speculated that the stars would most likely costar as mother and daughter for a comedy, even despite the small age gap. But still, we get the feeling that anything they do together would be a huge hit.
Here's a fun fact: Skeet Ulrich's twins have actually worked with Robert Downey Jr. before (Naiia Rose and Jakob Ulrich did a few scenes with him in Due Date). But surprisingly, their dad has yet to share any scenes with the Iron Man actor, even though the two could totally pass for relatives. We can envision them as brothers in a crime drama or mystery action/adventure like Sherlock Holmes. But what we'd love even more is getting to see Skeet and his kids costar with Robert at some point.
Anyone who doesn't sleep under a rock knows that both Viola Davis and Regina King are iconic in the acting world. Viola, known for Fences and The Help, continues to win our hearts week after week as the fierce Annelise on How to Get Away With Murder. And Regina has appeared in a number of popular films and shows, including American Crime, 24, The Big Bang Theory, and Enemy of the State. Both ladies have an impressive track record and are quite versatile. So regardless of genre, it would honestly be a dream come true to see these major talents work together.
They're both comedic legends who have countless hilarious films under their belts. Jim Carrey gave us classics like The Mask, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and the Truman Show. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler blessed us with The Waterboy, Big Daddy, Happy Gilmore, and tons more. So if we were to put them together as the stars of a clever comedy with complex characters and a well-written script, it would just be magical. At one point, we did have an inkling of hope when Marvel was reportedly considering both actors for Guardians of the Galaxy, but unfortunately, that never happened.
Tom Cruise and Will Smith are actually good friends in real life. In fact, they're so close that Tom once invited Will to play hide-and-seek in his Los Angeles home! Considering the amount of chemistry that they already have off-screen, we can only imagine how awesome it would be to see these guys in an action/adventure or sci-fi film - preferably as partners. Tom is a true action hero and Daredevil at heart, while Will, who's a master at incorporating humor, has proven to be very versatile. Here's hoping that a filmmaker will actually cast these two together one day.
We find it kind of shocking that these two icons have never actually done a movie together. Both are ridiculously talented and highly sought-after because they've covered such a broad range of roles in the past. No one could forget Denzel's performance in films like The Equalizer, Fences, and American Gangster. And Leonardo has been giving us flawless performances since day one, with classics like Titanic and What's Eating Gilbert Grape. It would be so fascinating to see them take on roles in either a psychological crime thriller or action drama. Bonus points if they're enemies!
How cool would it be to see these two in an action film? Keanu blew us all away as Neo in The Matrix films, but like Christian (aka Batman), he's also done a variety of different roles. If they were to team up for a movie, it would be most interesting to see them in a sci-fi action film because that's where they truly shine. But still, given their experience, they could probably get away with co-starring in any genre.
These two are actually close friends in real life and, technically, they did costar in a brief Funny or Die video (you can watch it here). However, they have yet to act on a project together. Perhaps its because the Parks and Recreation actress has a very different background from Natalie, who tends to take on more serious roles. But still, we can't forget the fact that Rashida has ventured outside of comedy with films like The Social Network and Decoding Annie Parker. If they were to do a movie together, it would most likely be a feel-good comedy or drama — perhaps a rom-com in which they play BFFs?
Tom Hardy was nothing short of brilliant in his latest film, Venom, but that's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of his acting skills. And Jake is just incredibly versatile with his roles, going from Brokeback Mounain to Prisoners to Southpaw. To say that these guys are talented feels like a major understatement. But if they were to ever join forces for an action, sci-fi, or mystery, or war film, they'd put out a major hit that would most likely leave us speechless.
Guys, James was absolutely terrifying in his most recent movie, Split. And if you've ever seen Gil Kenan's Poltergeist, then you already know that Sam also has a knack for scary films. If you're really into thrillers and horror films, then these two just might be your dream team. Don't be too surprised if you ever see a scary trailer that features them both in the future.
They were the comedic duo that we never knew we needed until they got up on stage to present an award at the 2018 Oscars. Fans raved over their bit, saying that they stole the entire show, and some even begged to have them co-host another event. But you know what would be even better? Seeing these two ladies star in a film together. Anyone who has seen Bridesmaids would agree that Maya was phenomenal as Lillian, and Tiffany was literally the highlight of Girls Trip. Since they already have such amazing chemistry, we could totally see them as fictional BFFs in a comedy film.
We don't know about you guys, but it's been a dream of ours to see these two ladies work together on a movie - especially since they're good friends in real life. Although Zendaya and Yara did *technically* work together on the animated film, Smallfoot, it would actually be even more rewarding to see them do live-action. We'd love to see them as relatives or BFFs in a brilliant coming-of-age drama or comedy, similar to Love, Simon or Eighth Grade... We can at least hope, right?
