Great concept, great potential, needs a couple of minor changes...

First right of the bat - keep the actors involved interesting people. Great start getting the mighty Willem Dafoe do the first episode, so REAL actors with a good history, I couldn't care less about some newcomer and their 5 IMDb credits. Consider Keith David, JK Simmons, Benicio Del Toro, Jay Acovone, a Norman Lloyd episode would be real trippy.

I felt this was too quick, probably to cater to the low attention span of today's internet-obsessed youth, a lot more material can be fit in if you doubled the episode runtime, that way the guest's answers don't have to be edited into small answers, allow detail, let them tell interesting stories, have them elaborate on how they came to find their first acting job.

Also the whole "keywords" quiz-type thing I felt were not that interesting to watch, this and the overall feel/tone of the episode made it seem like the creators tried a little too hard for the whole experience to come off as jolly and light-hearted. Inside the Actors Studio would come off as that sometimes, but that was more natural, had more to do with the natural charisma of the person being interviewed as well as the interviewer. This show should focus on the initial idea of an actor going through his IMDb filmography, the keywords quiz thing should be scrapped because its nowhere near as interesting as seeing an actor discuss films from his past and have clips accompany it (I always like a good use of movie clips).

In summary; do more with this idea, make it a little longer and focus on being informative rather than entertaining. IMDb's previous attempt at creating their own media hasn't really interested me until now, just don't try to pander to the lowest common denominator, because then you would just be squandering a good premise.

Great first episode. Willem Dafoe is one of the greatest actors and really funny guy. If only it was longer. 5 min is too short for so much work he did and I would like to hear more of the behind-the-scenes stories. That is the best part. Looking forward to the next episode!

Fun and entertaining. There are so many stars i want to see on the show. Like Steven Segal, i always wanted to ask him if he could remember anything from the movies his played in. He has played the same part in 50 movies, can he tell them apart? =P

a fun concept with (hopefully more) legendary actors!

Seeing the first two episodes, I'm already hooked! What i hope is that this series does not become something that only focuses on "commercial" actors. Danny Trejo and Willem Dafoe are two very specific actors that deserves being featured on this concept, I hope it keeps going like that. Two future recommendations from me would be Michael Madsen and Sean Bean!
