MSN Tim Burton and Johnny Depp present these days 'Dark Shadows'. The director recovers his particular gothic humor to adapt the famous television series of the 60s. This is Burton's latest film who fully trusts his fetish actor for his projects. In 22 years Tim has pulled Johnny 7 times.
Kevin Smith and Jason Newes
Jason Mewes is Kevin Smith's fetish actor. In fact, their relationship is so close that Jason lived in the director's house long before making films together. Their relationship goes so far that Kevin is the only director that lately has Jason for his films.
Denzel Washington and Spike Lee
Then there are the actors that are fetish for several directors. It is the case of Denzel Washington. The African-American actor always made good crumbs with Spike Lee and both have coincided in four films. The last 'Inside man' in 2006.
Tony Scott and Denzel Washington
But Tony Scott has also pulled Denzel several times, although for more movidito roles. In 15 years they have signed five blockbusters such as 'Unstoppable' and 'Déjà vu'.
Álex de la Iglesia and Santiago Segura
But if there is an indissoluble tandem in Spanish cinema, that is Álex de la Iglesia and Santiago Segura. Despite the fact that the actor does not lack offers in Spain, France and the United States and that he also has his own projects as director, Segura always takes a place and De la Iglesia a role for his films. From 'The day of the beast' to 'The spark of life'.
Almodóvar and Banderas
Almodóvar not only has a fetish actress. He also has an actor and his name is Antonio Banderas. Both agreed in some of the most transgressive works of the Spanish cinema of the 80s as 'Labyrinth depasiones' and 'The law of desire'. Then they distanced themselves by the respective comings and goings on the other side of the puddle, and in 2011 they got together for 'The skin that I inhabit'.
Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe
Tony's brother, Ridley, also usually bet on insurance. If something works, why change it. That is why the director and Russel Crowe form one of the strongest tandem of the film scene that reached its peak with 'Gladiator'.
Almodóvar and Penelope Cruz
The Manchego director and the actress from Madrid already have a few jobs together although their relationship did not begin until they both succeeded in the United States.
Woody Allen and Scarlett Johansson
A few months ago Woody Allen confirmed his intention to return to work with Scarlett Johansson. After films like 'Match Point', 'Scoop' and 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona', Allen decided to take a break from collaborating with Johansson for fear of exploiting their relationship too much.
Scorsese and Di Caprio
Then Scorsese would fall for the charms of Leonardo Di Caprio. A tandem that has already signed half a dozen works among which 'Gangs of New York' stands out.
Scorsese and De Niro
But this fetish actor is not for life. It is the case of Martin Scorsese who has had two along his career. The first was Robert de Niro and together they have already signed almost a dozen films from 'Bad streets' to 'Casino'.
They started with 'Eduardo Manostijeras'
Both met for the first time to give life to 'Eduardo Manostijeras', a film that definitely triggers the actor's career and begins a period of collaboration between the two that has been successful in success. Then came 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', 'Sweeny Todd' or 'Alicia', among others.
