If you want to try doing this in reverse, this one is a bit more challenging:

Recurring Roles by Actor

Or try the original, which is more comprehensive and even more of a challenge:

Actors Who Have Played the Same Role More than 7 Times

Or try this one. Just because:

Classic Movie Title Antonyms

Got to Wolverine and drew a blank. It was Hugh.... something. Laurie? Grant? What was his last name...
Level 81
Dec 1, 2014
Hugh Laurie and Hugh Grant would both make interesting Wolverines.
Level 81
Dec 4, 2014
and for a while I always remembered his name from some crass Internet review of the movie Swordfish that included a screen cap of Halle Berry topless along with the caption, "Hugh Jack, man?"
Level 81
Feb 16, 2018
and more recently following his massive bulking up for The Wolverine and Days of Future Past the Internet has taken to calling him "Huge Jacked Man"

These are also in a similar vein and might be fun for some:

Characters played by multiple actors 1, 2, 3. and 4.

This quiz was way too fickle about spelling.
Level 81
Jan 3, 2015
Sorry. QM redid the answers with regex editing that allows a lot of different spelling combinations when he elected to put this on the front page, but it can be hard to anticipate every possible spelling mistake that people will make.

Sep 9, 2018
Dearest Quizmaster, might I request the misspelling of Dench that includes an "s", i.e. Densch? It looked normal to me, although on further reflection, that may not have been the best argument to lead with.
Level 23
Jan 3, 2015
sly stalone should be accepted
Level 81
Jan 3, 2015
Try typing it in as "Stalone, Sly." That will work.
Level 67
Jan 5, 2015
What is Jim's dad a reference to?
Level 81
Jan 5, 2015
Noah Levenstsein is Jim's dad in the American Pie film series.
Level 33
Nov 19, 2016
Judi should be accepted as "Judy!!" I knew who it was I just didn't realize it was spelled that way!
Level 14
Sep 22, 2017
Tell me, where is Alec Baldwin?
Level 82
Oct 23, 2018
For what role?
Level 71

I know it specifies the years, but, Tom Holland is now tied with Tobey Maguire for Spider Man portrayals; if he is Spider Man in another movie, he will have surpassed Tobey Maguire.
Level 81
May 25, 2018
Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man Homecoming, Avengers Infinity War... and they already have a Homecoming sequel in the works and unless they leave him as mulch I'm guessing Holland will return for Avengers 4, so, yes, he will surpass Maguire.

But also, yes, the quiz does specify the years.

Level 72

Another key part of the description is "overexposed", which I am guessing is Kal's curmudgeonly way of saying "iconic". As of the date of this writing, I'd say Maguire still has the upper hand as the more iconic Spider-Man, but just baaaarrrely. After Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far a From Home, I'm guessing Tom Holland will inherit that mantle, at which point it would make sense for Kal to change the question. Just my $.02.

Can you accept "RDJ" for iron man?
Level 49

Great quiz! but some numbers need to be updated on this one:

- C3PO has been played by the same actor in 9 movies, ending in 2019

- M has been played by the same actress in 8 movies, ending in 2015 (uncredited video cameo in SPECTRE)

- Nick Fury has been played by the same actor in 11 movies, ending in 2019

- Iron Man has been played by the same actor 10 times, ending in 2019

- Rambo's number of appearances is right, but his last one was in 2019, not 2015

Again, thanks for another great quiz!
