Netflix's original programming options are growing so exponentially that it's entirely possible that one day they could outnumber the amount of contracted content available on the streaming service.
Along with that comes the reality that many those shows and movies will share actors and actresses.
With over 50 original shows and mini-series, not to mention all the shows they've picked up for continuation, and close to 50 feature films, it stands to reason that some of those projects would feature many of the same performers.
For example, comedienne Maria Bamford, who has her own Netflix comedy special titled Old Baby, also has her own series, Lady Dynamite, and has been on Arrested Development, as well as done voice work on BoJack Horseman.
Bamford is just one of the many actors who pop up in multiple Netflix originals, as the list can get pretty lengthy.

On BoJack Horseman, Allison Brie stars opposite Will Arnett as the voice of Diane Nguyen, the often unattainable desire of BoJack's affection.

Just this past week, however, Brie saw the launch of her starring vehicle GLOW, which is a Netflix original dramedy that "revolves around a fictionalization of the characters and gimmicks of the 1980s syndicated women's professional wrestling circuit, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or GLOW)."prevnext

In an unprecedented move, Sandler and his Happy Madison production company signed a multi-picture deal with Netflix.
So far, Sandler has played a cowboy in The Ridiculous 6, a con-man in The Do-Over, and a lackluster Hollywood agent in Sandy Wexler.0comments
There may be more on the horizon, but we'll just have to wait and see what character Sandler takes on in his next Netflix original film.prev
