He was looking for it to use as a clue in a game round a few weeks after he was looking for it. Meanwhile, I hope he posts the next one soon.

Refreshing the page after submitting works, too.   George

Well ... yeah.  I was about 15 when it came out.  (Saw it a couple of years later, when I was in college.) Fonda DID win the Best Actress Oscar for the performance.   George

This will exhaust the actors portraying this role:

Sean Kenney

Anson Mount

Bruce Greenwood

Jeffrey Hunter

 

To get this one, you may have to think thoughts so dark, so primitive, so evil, that even a Talosian can't read your mind.

It is.

Played by Jeffrey Hunter in "The Cage" (the first Star Trek pilot).  When "The Cage" was reconfigured into a two-parter, "The Menagerie," Hunter had died, so the crippled Pike was played by Sean Kenney.  Bruce Greenwood played him in the reboot ST movies; and Anson Mount played (plays? I haven't seen all the current season) him in ST Discovery, temporarily transferring from the Enterprise to the Discovery.

After carefully consulting the rules, I will play this round fairly- which is to say, listing only television and movie roles and NOT roles from live theater. (Unless there was a television or film version of the live theater show, perhaps.)

Franco Bertollini         Michael Reisler              Cottard

Anthony Quinn?

George

No.   Once the correct answer is posted, trivia buffs may note that the correct answer and Anthony Quinn share a particular trait,  but I doubt you know it, and probably couldn't guess it from here.

Christopher Plummer?

George

No, although neither actor is currently alive.   Both have done Shakespeare in one form or another, but neither is exactly an actor who springs to mind when trying to name Shakespearean actors.

(That should more than do it.  Otherwise, I'll have to post the most obvious of all his roles.)

You had me at Sandy Stern, though George beat me to it.

I knew you'd know once I posted Alejandro's nickname was Sandy, but I wasn't sure if you'd know before.  Or if you'd answer first.

Dead actor

Shown in "Framed."

Narrows it down to about a dozen actors.

Likely Hispanic, from the character names.  Would "Gomez Addams" be a likely addition to this list?

George

That would be the next name.  Just to make this official, Goerge, that means this is?

BTW, Anthony Quinn's ticket to stardom was playing Italian characters. However, he was secretly Latino, as were other actors like Michael Sheen (Estevez).

Raul Julia

George

That's him, in all sorts of roles.    Most famous besides Gomez Addams was probably M. Bison of "Street Fighter."   However, he's done live theater, so it wasn't a stretch to play Captain MacHeath/ Mack the Knife,.
