New York Film Locations




Top 20 Actors Chart

This chart was compiled in January 2012 from the current list of films showcasing on OTSONY. Surprisingly, actors such as Sarah Michelle Gellar, Heather Graham, Bill Murray, Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Garner, Dustin Hoffman and Jessica Alba all missed out on a chart position due to the competition being so strong in regards to the quantity of New York based films each actor had featured in. We start our chart at number 20 with actor Hugh Grant, who has so far been featured in 5 films.

Thank you for visiting otsoNY, a free service since 2009. We have lots of ideas to help increase the awareness of the website as well as development new features such a Virtual Tour Guide, a Film Location App for your mobile and a otsoNY Hardback Book, but none of this is possible without financial backing. Our overhead costs such as hosting, server space and support maintenance have also increased over the years and otsoNY is now at risk of shutting down without financial help.
