The Rock, Hulk Hogan, and John Cena are also all actors. Quite unfortunately, too, especially in the case of Hogan.

While requiring strength and athleticism, I'd say their "wrestling" constitutes acting too

Yes, adding an "s" is an unusual way to pluralize in English. (Also, why did you need the plural?)

Took me way too long to come up with "ambassador." Finally remembered that Shirley Temple did other stuff after she outgrew being a cute little girl. :D

Tricky since Ben Franklin also spent time working as a cute little girl. Truly a Renaissance man.

I tried “traitor” – then just “espionage”, before I realized I needed the word for “espionager”, which probably doesn’t exist. (Wait… expionagist! Okay, maybe not.)

Really pedantic note here - technically Pitt the Elder was never "prime minister" in the sense that he was never "First Lord of the Treasury". He was certainly the most prominent minister in the governments he was part of and usually features in lists of prime ministers. So I'm not really complaining. Just showing off.

Maybe add some diversity in the Prime Minister clue, rather than taking 16th century English prime ministers when the position wasn't even well defined.

Another idea for diversity on this one: maybe pick some Prime Ministers from outside the UK? A lot of other countries have Prime Ministers at the head of their government...

Can you add Mountaineer? Racked my brain for Hillary's bio for something else since explorer was already used. That is the first thing that is used in his Wikipedia entry.

"So what do you do for a living." "I'm a race car!" That would come from a 3 year old... They aren't race cars thought, they're the chunks of metal that the RACE CAR DRIVER races :)

I recognized Phil Ivey from somewhere deep in the recesses of my mind. The only other ones I know are Johnny Chan (whom I know because he is depicted in the movie Rounders) and Chris Moneymaker, because who could forget a poker player with that name. I remember there was also a guy nicknamed "Fossil Man" who wore distinctive sunglasses with dinosaur eyes depicted in the lenses, but I don't know what his real name is.
