Shall we play a game?

Premise of the game is simple.

You each get 3 guesses to name the person that is associated with the most movies on my personal Emby system.  Only movies count and not TV Shows.
You can use all 3 guesses in one post or spread your guesses out in multiple posts.

I'll let it run until someone guesses the person I think has the most movies.  At that point I'll run some SQL to see if there is another person with more movies associated but for now I honestly don't know the answer but "think" I know who has been in the most movies (no hints).  So it will be kind of fun for me as well as I honestly don't know the answer yet.

I'll post the number of movies that show up for any person guessed.

So to be clear this is what my personal Emby server shows based on my choices of meta-data providers when searching for a person.  It's not based on the meta-data provider or any 3rd party list.
You can guess an actor, director, writer or producer. Different versions of a movie are only counted once.  If I have a 3D, 1080, 720 & 4K version of movie it's still just one movie for this purpose.

So if you guess "Tom Cruise" you would not win and I'd tell you that he appears in 51 movies.
If you guessed "John Malkovich" I'd tell you he shows up in 63 movies but still not the top contender.

The current size of my movies currently stands at 23K+ movies.

So let's see who gets the answer first.  I will bet after the fact a lot of people will say.  Yea that makes sense, this "person" has been in a lot of movies, probably more than you thought. :)

110 Movies
This is even higher then the person I thought had the most movies on my system.
Now that you bested me, I had thought Bruce Willis with 102 movies was likely the most.

Cheaters. :)

Danny Trejo right now is tops with 110 but there is at least one other person in more movies I've just found.
I asked my son the same question and the person he mentioned has a higher movie count.

To make this a bit more interesting. I ran some SQL and now know the answer.

The top five People:

1. ???, 163 Movies
2. ???, 129 Movies
3. ???, 122 Movies
4. Danny Trejo, 110 Movies
5. Bruce Willis, 102 Movies

1 of the top 3 should be pretty obvious but the other 2 are more obscure and might require Googling unless you know your movie trivia or watch credits roll.

Some hints.  One has been dead for over 35 years and born before 1900, one is mostly known as a voice actor in many great movies, one is a major box officer actor/actress still making movies to this day and should be an obvious guess.

2. Samuel L Jackson, 129 Movies

Mel Blanc?

22 Movies

I think he's more known for cartoons then movies, but not sure.

So another hint.  The guy is still living.

That is correct but he is (was) the most famous voice actor I knew of.  Wasn't sure what your Looney Tunes collection was :).

Same for me as well.  If someone asked me to name a voice actor he would be the first name I'd think of.
Of course I grew up in the era of Mel Blanc.

Another hint.  The other voice actor still not named was born some 35 to 40 years after Mel Blanc was born.
