Script Summary: Shows you what roles actors have had in movies you've seen. Requires Firefox 3.5 or later. Also seems to work in Google Chrome.
The September 2010 redesign of IMDb broke this script. It may be a
while before I fix this the right way. In the meantime, if you want
to use this script, you can tell IMDb to use the old version: see
and then install this version, which is a temporary fix that I hope will work.
If you install this version, it will notify you when an update is available.
Requires Firefox 3.5 or later. (Also seems to work in Google Chrome.)
- Keep track of movies you've seen, by clicking on [+] next to them.
These movies are highlighted wherever links to them occur on IMDb.
- When looking at a cast listing, click "..." next to an actor
to see which other movies you've seen that actor in. Click
on "Where have I seen these actors?" to see this for all.
If this doesn't work, use the Userscripts.org discussion at

* This script keeps track of the seen movies in its own table (an
about:config preference), not online on IMDb. It's a good idea to
backup the list occasionally: Click on "Show seen movies" in "User
script commands", hit Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, Enter/Return, and copy text.
If you know how to make it save to IMDB's "My movies" or somewhere
online, any code contributed will be appreciated.
* For each cast listing, it actually visits each actor's page to
find all his/her movies. Not only can this be slow if you're on a
slow connection, it might also be considered too much strain on
IMDb's servers. Use with discretion.
