Paramount Pictures

It's been quite a celebratory year for Paramount Pictures in the wake of the studio's 100th anniversary. The studio has already released a cool iPad app, an awesome commemorative poster and a new logo that's been all over the big screen. Now the long history of one of Hollywood's most iconic studios is on display in a very cool way. Vanity Fair captured a total of 116 of the biggest and brightest talents from the studios' past including actors, directors, producers and even a few executives responsible for the most iconic films like The Godfather, Indiana Jones, Iron Man and many more. See if you can spot your favorite stars!

Now the photo is so big that we've only included a fraction of it below. But you can go to Vanity Fair's website to see the whole photo where you can hover over every inch and see the names of everyone included:

Paramount Pictures - 100 Years, 116 Stars

From Harrison Ford to Tom Cruise on the superstar side of things to Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams behind the camera. Producers like Robert Evans are in the mix and even Sumner Redstone, the biggest honcho of them all, came along. Generations of stars are represented from Billy Dee Williams (he's aged quite a bit since his Lando Calrissian days) to Shia LaBeouf. Even less active talents like Dana Carvey and Molly Ringwald get a spot. This is truly an epic photo and if someone took out the location of this photoshoot, Hollywood would be in sad shape. Now how do we get them to make a movie together?

        Tommy Chong is funny. If he wore a suit he's look like every other jangball in the photo.

    WHERE THE HELL IS AL PACINO, JOE PESCI, DANY DEVITO, BRUCE WILLIS, SLY, ARNIE, CHRIS HEMSWORTH, TOM HANKS, JEFF BRIDGES, JOHN LITHGOW, JAMES FRANCO, SETH ROGEN, JIM CARREY, ANGELINA JOLIE, GWYNETH PALTROW, JENNIFER ANISTON, BRIAN CRANSTON, MATT DAMON, JEREMMY RENNER, SCARJO, KURT RUSSELL, JAMIE FOXX, SAMUEL L JACKSON, UMA THURMAN, JAKE GYLLENHAL, CHRISTIAN BALE, JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT, KEVIN BACON, TOM SIZEMORE, GERARD DEPARDIEU, RAY LIOTTA, MICHEAL SHANNON, RAY WINSTONE, IAN McKELLEN, HUGH JACKMAN, PAUL HOGAN, AND SO ON AND SO ON AND SO ON GOD DAMMIT. AND I AIN'T EVEN MENTIONNING PHOTOSHOP. THEY COULD'VE PHOTOSHOPED A FEW IN THERE, LIKE BRANDO AND LEDGER FOR THAT MATTER. I guess some of the actors on my list haven't even worked for paramount but i know some of them are on my list. Plus, the executive nobodies(even though they ARE important and all, seriously, who REALLY knows who Alejandro Gonzalez is?) FUCKIN JUSTIN BIEBER AND JOHHNY KNOXVILLE?, WHAT THE HEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLL PEOPLE? Might as well put 50 CENT in there.

      While I completely agree about Justin Bieber, Johnny Knoxville on the other hand has made over $320 million dollars on just a total of $36 million in budgeting for the three Jackass movies. That's ridiculously profitable. Also of note: No one from the G.I.Joe Movie(s) is in this photo, as far as I can tell, which I guess I can understand.

    Nice, Bruce Dern. Where the hell is Clancy Brown?!

    Trying to think if ARNIE/SLY/BRUCE made a film for PARAMOUNT iam suprised like above that Pacino & Pesci arent there. With Dana Carvey and Micheal York you'd have thought Mike Myers wouldve been there. Kevin Costner is there and Harrison Ford but yet no spot for Sean Connery. and Gore Verbinski is there yet no Johnny Depp, how come George Lucas isnt there representing INDY? I do admit to get them all there is awesome....... until I saw fucking Beiber why oh why is he there for feck sake! Glad Rob Downey JR is on the higher tier. But mega credit for getting Borgnine - Douglas - Glenn - Rooney there, been better if they had Brando there :)

    Interesting groupings of peeps.  How much you wanna bet RDJ prodded Bieber to do the cheesiest thing possible, or at least knowingly approved of his silly idea, saying - " Oh yeah, Beebs!  I think that's a GREE-AT idea!  You should totally do that!" And so he did.  I like David Lynch way off on the side.  haha-llywood.  Snicker.

    This is Legend- (wait for it) .....dary!!! LEGENDARY!!! ,Although I personally trongly dislkie(i don't like to use the word hate) Justin Bieber, he's such as little hypocrite and not even an actor.... Other than that everyone else is Awesome!! :)  Hell, Even though I dont like jackass..... Knoxsville is still ok in my book :)
  • Digg
    This is pretty cool, but it would have been better with some more Old Hollywood. How about some of Paramount's lesser known contract players?
  • Truong18
    How the hell did Justin Bieber got in there?

  • happy camper
    What the hell is the Bieber doing here? he isnt a actor and Paramount just distributed the film in a few places not even gave money to produce the thing. So weird.
  • Max

    When did James Caan turn 173 years old? I also just noticed Katie Featherston on there, I think that's awesome. Megan, Rosie, and Shia (doing Robin Williams impression) are separated.Would've liked to see Bale in that spot behind Wahlberg.  Maybe WB said no. :P
