IMDb needs a cross-reference feature. Type in 2+ titles, it will show similar actors & crew. ie. Downton Abbey x Game of Thrones

This would also be really useful for comparing two actors, or an actor and a director to see what joint projects they might have worked on. Especially for someone like Judd Apatow, who is known to work with the same actors in different projects.

I wonder how much use it'd get, as they'd need to devote some developer time to it.

It sounds more like the kind of feature an external site might implement if IMDB had a fully featured API.

Starting with the "Two People Working Together" working together one can check what films three or more actors share in common. For instance, here is a search for titles With Moe Howard And Curly Howard And Larry Fine:

One can do something similar for films. For instance, these are the people associated with the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy:
