Well maybe other than Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson, although it's arguable that Redford is bigger than Nicholson.
The only other living actors on Redford's level I can think of are Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery. I suppose there's also De Niro (but he shows up in everything), Pacino and Dustin Hoffman. I think the fact that De Niro and Hoffman were in Meet the Fockers kind of makes them a bit more common place.
Redford probably wouldn't have his name attached to any old movie unless he were really confident in it and it had a certain calibre.
