I think there should be a random button the website so that I can discover new actors or movies or television shows. It would be fun and engaging. Agreed?

It already exists! Just key the URL http://www.imdb.com/title/tt####### where the # represent random numbers. You'll probably get a great deal of misses, so prepare for disappointment.

http://www.imdb.com/random/name will take you to a random popular name

http://www.imdb.com/random/title will take you to a random popular title

The entries are selected from a pool of popular names/titles rather than from the entire database so you don't get a completely random title or name out of the millions listed on the site, but it should still offer some interesting selections.

Cool! Why aren't there links to these on the site? Or have we missed something?

They are: click on the 'Site Index' link located in the footer at the bottom of every page.

WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   This is insanely bad UI design. Who in the world would ever find this? Put this feature somewhere where people can find it!
