George,  that first line should be more than enough to give you his name,  and the rest should make you confident you have the right guy.

On the off-chance that everyone didn't chime in with the answer in harmony, I had to save something for the next post.

Well, they don't.  Probably a recognizable face, but I haven't an idea who it is.  The fact that you put "Hugh Hefner" in quotes is probably significant, but it doesn't ring any bells with me.

How about Man that drinks soft drink

And Veteran who should not have drank that.

different roles in different movies and different drinks.

 

There's a word for these types of roles that should make you smack your forehead and say, OH, DUH!!! [That's not a hint].

All of that is correct.

"Probably?"  a recognizable face?

For you, a VERY recognizable face, with a VERY recognizable voice.  (AFAIK.)

Since I have no idea who that is, I can't think of a single one.

Oh great.  Another game where Raf knows who it is but pokes fun and jesters that all of us are idiots.  Just play the game or not play it Raf.

I don't mind Raf fooling around, but he's probably going to have to answer, because I'm not getting it.

Willie Lumpkin was the mailman for the Fantastic Four.

Any thoughts about who might play "Generalissimo Lee"  or "Senator Lieber" ?

Some of these might be remembered individually-  the Smithsonian Guard who realizes Captain America's costume is missing,  the FedEx Driver looking for "Tony Stank",  the Milwaukee Man who drank from a bottle and dropped dead due to gamma ray exposure,  but individually, none may ring a bell.   Except for a case like this one where you're LOOKING for Waldo in the background, none of these should count as a role for this thread.    THAT was a clue by itself.

An informant for The Watcher?   A ladies' man on XANDAR?     Someone's got cameo roles in Marvel movies.   Generalissimo Lee and Senator Lieber are slips of the name- Stan Lee, born Stanley Lieber.      I'd have gotten it off of the top line.  Willie Lumpkin appeared in one movie.    Tony Stark identified Stan as Larry King and incorrectly(?)  as Hugh Hefner in Iron Man 1 and Iron Man 2 (IIRC, in reverse order, as Larry at the beginning of IM2 (on the way to the car, just before getting served the Congressional subpoena) and Hef at the charity ball in the middle of IM1 (on his way into the building.)

Presumably, the "Rejected Wedding Guest" was when he actually appeared as himself at Reed and Sue's wedding.  "No!  Really!  I AM Stan Lee!"

Oh!       I may not have thought it was the same "Nicky",  but the Zohan to not mess with was ADAM SANDLER.   

(The other names weren't ringing any kind of bell for me.)

Correct.

Robbie Hart was "The Wedding Singer," and Bobby Boucher was "The Waterboy."  Some of the other names were from fairly well-known films, though the characters' names wouldn't be as recognizable.  I'm glad Nicky and Zohan were recognizable.  I was afraid I'd have to use Happy Gilmore... :wink2:
