Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd

Former Friends star Jennifer Aniston's movie credits include The Switch, Marley and Me, with Owen Wilson; The Break-Up, Along Came Polly, Bruce Almighty, The Good Girl and Office Space. Most recently, Aniston was seen opposite Paul Rudd in the critical and box office bomb Wanderlust. Aniston and Rudd had better luck with The Object of My Affection, released in the late '90s.

Paul Rudd has been featured in more than 50 films, oftentimes in broad, low-brow comedies. Among Rudd's credits are Judd Apatow's This Is 40, Dinner for Schmucks, Our Idiot Brother, I Love You, Man, Role Models, Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Cider House Rules, and Clueless.

Next, Paul Rudd will be seen in Paul Weitz's Admission, with Michael Sheen, Tina Fey, Lily Tomlin, and Wallace Shawn. And later this year, Rudd and Emile Hirsch should be seen in David Gordon Green's Prince Avalanche, winner of the Best Director Silver Bear at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival.

Michael Douglas and Jamie Foxx

Michael Douglas won a Best Actor Academy Award for his performance as the greedy villain and Charlie Sheen mentor in Oliver Stone's Wall Street (1987). Douglas had previously taken home an Oscar as one of the producers of the 1975 Best Picture winner One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, directed by Milos Forman, and starring Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher.

Among Michael Douglas' other film credits as an actor are The China Syndrome, with Jack Lemmon and Jane Fonda; Romancing the Stone, The Jewel of the Nile, and The War of the Roses, all three with Kathleen Turner; Curtis Hanson's Wonder Boys, with a pre-Spider-Man Tobey Maguire; and Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, with Shia LaBeouf and Susan Sarandon.

In early 2005, Jamie Foxx received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Collateral, starring Tom Cruise. That same year, Foxx won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance as Ray Charles in Taylor Hackford's Ray. Of note, Foxx is one of the actors – alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz – featured in Quentin Tarantino's Best Picture Oscar nominee Django Unchained.
