Apparently, co-starring in George Lucas' Star Wars prequel trilogy, Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, and every Marvel flick from Iron Man to The Avengers has done a Jackson good: He's associated with more money-making movies than any other actor.

That's according to the Guinness Book of World Records, so you know it's gotta be legit. Seriously, this doesn't mean that people are going to see those movies because he'll be appearing as Nick Fury or Mace Windu. It's just that Jackson has a knack for choosing movies that'll be popular.

Either that, or, given the fact that he's been in more than 100 movies in the past 20 years, he just says yes to everything and hopes for the best.
