Yes yes, your favorite pairing didn't get included because guess what? There's just too many to list. Directors commonly work with the same set of actors on multiple projects all the time. The ones included in this poll is but a small fraction of what could have been listed. Like say what about Christopher Guest and his cadre of comedic stars (Eugene Levy, Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, etc)?

Of course, this poll also didn't do itself any favors by listing Clint Eastwood/himself, which

Of course, this poll also didn't do itself any favors by listing Clint Eastwood/himself, which technically means you can pick anyone who directs and stars in the same movie numerous times. Because of that, I voted for Jackie Chan.

Joblo really messed up this poll. Why is Molly Ringwald and John Hughes an option, but Kurt Russell and John Carpenter isn't an option? You know you fucked up a poll when the "other" option gets 100 votes.

I like most of the above but I'm posting to give an honorable mention to two budding pairings: Ryan Gosling/Nicolas Winding Refn and Michael Fassbender/Steve McQueen.

The Scott/Washington combo is my favourite, but from the list I like the DiCaprio/Scorsese pairing.

Honorable mention(s): Damon/Greengrass, Jovovich/W.S Anderson

Chris Nolan-Michael Caine?

Mr. Caine has been in five films with Nolan, and even though 3 of those are part of a franchise, the other two gave Michael Caine pretty sweet roles. He was really good in The Prestige and his small but important role in Inception gave the movie an added quality. Knowing that you can look forward to Michael Caine showing up in a Nolan movie is actually pretty awesome.
