I think Justin Bieber and William Shatner were added to remind Canadians not to get too cocky. There are some big duds out of the True North (strong and free). Frankly, our neighbors to the North should apologize for those two, as well as Jim Carrey and Celine Dion. ;) Just my US$0.02.

Surely there's a better clue for Ryan Reynolds out there?

Yep. I know he's been in some really bad films, but considering he's played two superheros with one of them being the highest grossing "R" rated movie of all time. I imagine you can come up with something other than a marriage that ended 6 years ago and lasted only 3 years.

Took the quiz again. Missed that one again. I know the man's career very well but didn't bother to remember he was married to ScarJo. I was even looking at the quiz this time thinking "hm, no Ryan Reynolds?"

I agree about Christopher Plummer and Terry Fox. Missing Fox and subsequently looking up his story would be a much better thing for JetPunk'ers that getting a cheap, slam-dunk "Justin Bieber" point. Or whoever that "Call her, maybe" person was.

Plummer & Fox = Canadians of consequence
Bieber & Jepson = yeah, whatever

Ya know, for all the complaints I see about quizzes is being “too American”, here is one with nary a US-born citizen to be found, and the average scores are pretty terrible.
