I thought it was a really bad photo of Robert DeNiro. It's an even worse photo of John Hurt. (I remember QM stating that it's difficult to find good photos of actors.) In this photo he looks nothing like Ollivander from the Harry Potter films or Control from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, so I guess it attests to his greatness as an actor that he could convince us he was so many different people.

If you've seen The Florida Project, you'd know that man in the last row has truly become Willem Dafriend.

I'm sad to say I don't remember five of these, but I'm mad to say I just couldn't get Jeremy Irons off the tips of my fingers. I blanked on his name. Time to binge watch the Brideshead Revisited mini-series.

This was pretty tough. Combination of actors I'm not very familiar with (Douglas, Irons), actors whose names I couldn't remember (Fassbender, Howard), and confusing pictures (Hackman).

I always confuse Michael Douglas and Martin Sheen. I tried Martin Sheen for Kirk Douglas, and then thought "It's an old picture. Maybe Martin Sheen's dad was an actor too?" Completely whiffed, which is worse because I *know* Michael Douglas's dad was an actor.

Lol I usually have a similar problem, since both of them are fathers to famous actors.

I know this sounds redundant now, but that photo doesn't look a lot like Martin Brando to me, although it might be because the only film I've seen of him is the Godfather.
