It is said that you are no one in acting unless you have acted in a film with Michael Caine. There may be some truth to this, because even arguably the greatest actor of the last century, Sir Lawrence Olivier, starred in a film with MC, namely, Sleuth.

I believe Morgan Freeman has this quality. You're no one in Hollywood unless you have acted in a film with Morgan Freeman. Even Jack Nicholson, arguably the greatest actor of modern times, starred in a film with Mr. Freeman.

Who would you pick as the litmus test for actors and actresses?

Gary and Molly's Baby Girl!!! :rofl:

I have to say IMO Gary B was pretty good in a few roles, like Silver Bullet.
I absolutely Hated Molly R in the Stand, other than that I guess she's generally alright.
Then there is Shelly D. She was in no way shape or form the right actress to play Wendy. Other than being an abomination in that movie, she's okay too.
I still haven't been able to think of an actor or actress, other than the ones that have been mentioned so far, that I think are litmus test worthy.
