This is some list.  Hans Conreid isn't known for almost anything, unless you're a Hans Conreid fan.  Then you know he played Percy Livermore,  Dan Jenkins (both "I Love Lucy" roles),  Dr Terwilliger in that "Dr T and" something movie, and he did some voice work for animation like the Rankin-Bass "The Hobbit."

Nick Nolte I remember for "48 Hours",  Jeffrey Jones is most famous for Principal Rooney in "Ferris Buehler's Day Off",  and "Daveed Diggs" sounds African-American from that name.   Kevin Kline I remember best as Artemus Gordon in the remake of "Wild Wild West."  (I almost confuse him for Kenneth Branagh, partly because they both were in that movie.)

Charleton Heston is known for playing classic roles.  It's possible all of these men, when starting out, went onstage or on TV or something and shared at least one classic role, like Shakespeare or the Bible or something.

 

 

Taking all of that into account, my first guess will be  "Moses", with Charleton Heston as the most famous actor in the role.

So, something related to the Founding Fathers....

No "Lin-Manuel Miranda",  so not "Hamilton."     Some of those names work for Ben Franklin, but others do not.   So, maybe this is "THOMAS JEFFERSON."   Let's go young instead of old.

I can't decide whether those are roles or actors.  Preston and Welles had many roles, but I don't remember Cronkite doing anything other than the news.  On the other hand, I could imagine actors portraying Cronkite and Welles, but not Preston.  Unless these were all characters from "Drunk History"?

Those are all actors.  This is not a list of roles, it's one role shared by those actors.
