I hated not being able to tell who actors were from the tiny images on IMDb's movie reference pages. This script shows an enlarged version of the image when you mouse over the actor's row in the cast listing. It also shows enlarged versions of the poster, photo, and video thumbnails along the top of the page when moused over.

I use the "classic" IMDb layout, but designed this script to work with the newer layout as well. (imdb.com/title/tt0056172/reference as opposed to imdb.com/title/tt0056172/.) Please let me know if you have any issues with either layout.



(Tested in Firefox with Tampermonkey. Please give me feedback if you have any issues!)
