Use Siri to find movies with two specific actors Apps

Sure, IMDb’s advanced search tools can you help find occasions when two disparate actors appeared in the same film. But navigating IMDb when you want to play offshoots of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is no fun. If you have a Siri-capable iOS device within reach, you can find movie star overlap using only your voice.

Give Siri an instruction like, “Show me movies with Jason Biggs and Woody Allen,” and the virtual assistant should suggest Anything Else a moment later. And in cases of overlap—“What movies have both Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry”—Siri provides a list of all the matching films. (In that case, it’s both Rugrats in Paris and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.)

Tap on a matching movie to see more information about the film.

Use Siri to find movies with two specific actors

I like this hint, but aren't those the same question just phrased two different ways?

How would one ask the question "what actor was in both The Crossing Guard and Chinatown?"

(That wording doesn't work.)

I blame myself for the confusion there. I just meant that when there are multiple movies that feature both actors, Siri will provide a list of all of them. It's certainly the same question type each time.

I don't (yet!) know of a way to get Siri to provide a common actor across two films.
