Actor Noobs Like Me: Google Play Movies Shows You Actor Info

Google Play TVWhen it comes to knowing anything about movies or the actors or actresses in those movies, you don't want to ask me. I am the last person who knows the name of a movie star, what other movies they were in or even what the name of the movie I might be watching on a flight to San Jose, California.

Google now has a solution for people like me. The Google Play Movies & TV app now will tell you details about the actors or actresses in the movies, so I too can act like I know something about Hollywood.

Google said they have added info cards "so you can easily learn more about the actors, related films and even what song is playing in many of your favorite movies." How does it work? "When you're watching a film on your tablet, simply press pause and cards will pop up with information about actors on screen."

Here is a picture:

Now I just need an Android Tablet.
