Hollywood Nexus

After making Bollywood Nexus, I thought it would be a fairly simple matter to make a Hollywood version. Creating a 'good' database for the Hollywood version was more painful than I anticipated. The main reason is that, if you were to pick any two famous names from Bollywood, chances are that they would have worked in a movie together (Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are the exception that proves the rule). Thats not the case for the Hollywood. So the database needed to have

a) Famous actors/actresses who are likely to have worked with each other
b) The movies they've worked in together shouldn't be too obscure.

In any event the database has been made, as well as the other minor modifications necessary. The game is up on the website.
