I'm surprised more people got Maradona than Madonna. But that's probably because the latter doesn't appear on the quiz.

Corey Feldman was in a couple of 80s movies, like The Fox and the Hound, The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, and even Gremlins.

Corey Haim was an actor who was also in The Lost Boys, which is where the "two Coreys" thing got its start. He later dealt with drug addiction and died in 2010.

Corey Hart was a singer who actually had 9 songs hit the Billboard Top 40, but then faded into obscurity shortly afterwards.

the "detective" in magnum PI is actually Thomas Magnum, not Tom Selleck (who is the actor).
