Search for Actors by their Face

You’ve watched a show or movie before & said, “Oh, I’ve seen that guy before. What else has he been in?” This addition to the IMDb app would allow you to answer the question quickly without having to look up the show & scroll through their cast to find the one page you want to see. Like Shazam matches music & Google photos can name a face & group all pictures of it together, the addition would essentially allow you to scan your television and pull up the IMDb page of the actor or actress, allowing to instantanteaously see their other work, birthday, spouse, etc. Because the idea in its own app would just be another app that you only use everyone once in a while, it perfectly fits with what IMDb is already doing. It can just be a little scanner in the corner that you click whenever you have that “who is that?” moment.

It was just an interesting idea that I had, don’t come at me wrong lmao.
