Re: Most Famous Movie Role

Not looking at anyone else's answers (and not looking up the names of some of the characters):

A) Tom Hanks - Forrest Gump

B) Mel Gibson - Mad Max

C) Arnold Schwarzenegger - the Terminator, but I'm not sure if it's the baddie in part 1 or the goody in part 2

D) Sylvester Stallone - Rocky. Or Rambo

E) Bruce Willis - John McClane

F) Tom Cruise - ?? I don't know. He's best known for being Tom Cruise, not for any particular role. Maybe Top Gun, or Mission Impossible?

G) Will Smith - Agent J or Fresh Prince of Bel Air

H) Robert Patrick (other than the T-1000) - Agent Doggett

I) Harrison Ford - Han Solo. Or Indiana Jones?

J) Richard Gere - the guy in An Officer and a Gentleman

K) Robin Williams - the teacher from Dead Poet Society

L) Robert DeNiro - Travis Bickle

M) Jim Carrey - not sure, maybe Truman?

N) Samuel Jackson - Jules in Pulp Fiction

O) Jack Nicholson - One Flew over Cookoo's Nest

P) Morgan Freeman - Se7en

Q) Danny Glover - Lethal Weapon

R) Joe Pesci - Goodfellas

S) Eddie Murphy - Beverly Hills Cop

Bonus Question: Which of the 3 actors above are most famous for their overall work/roles?
Robert De Niro; Jack Nicholson; Harrison Ford (I'm not sure how much Cruise is famous for his roles and how much for... other stuff)

1. Clint Eastwood - Dirty Harry

2. Paul Newman - Butch Cassidy

3. Robert Redford - Sundance Kid

4. Steve McQueen - probably the guy from The Magnificent Seven, but there's no way I can remember his name

5. Warren Beatty - Clyde Barrow

6. Burt Reynolds - errrr... I dunno, Bandit?

7. Jeff Bridges - The Dude

8. Kevin Spacey - Keyser Soze

9. Michael Caine - for the younger generation, Alfred. For those who are more familiar with his career, one of the many gangster roles he's played, but there's no way I can remember specific characters or films. His characters tended to be similar. Basically, it's "Michael Caine Cool Gangster role"

10. Donald Sutherland - Hawkaye in MASH (maybe)

11. Tommy Lee Jones - Agent K

12. Tim Robbins - Andy Dufresne

13. Kevin Bacon - ?? I don't know. He's best known for the 6 degrees of himself

14. Sean Penn - Dead Man Walking

15. Liam Neeson - Oscar Schindler
Treason, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
