I initially tried "Phillip Seymour" for Hoffman. He won Best Actor in 2005.

There's a lot of ambiguity as to who's "more famous" on many of these quizzes, and I think this is yet another one of them.

It doesn't matter at all who is "more famous." Dustin is still a (and in this case THE) correct answer to the question.

I tried to find last names that were not shared by multiple A-List actors. Phillip Seymour Hoffman never crossed my mind when selecting Dustin Hoffman. I would say Dustin is the much more famous of the two, but your point is definitely valid.

Dustin was the first guy I thought of as well but these days I think Philip Seymour is at least as well known and well respected, if not more. Dustin's career peaked quite a while ago.

Good quiz. Got 26 out of 28. Not too bad. Don't know who Peter Dinklage is though. Can't believe i missed viggo mortensen...he's a really talented actor and there's like four or five good movies i saw him in....oh well.

You can be disappointed if you want. Snobbery is nothing to be proud of.

Quite a few of these are common first names (Ben, Paul, Christopher etc). So a tougher challenge would be to name the actors in order.

For Dreyfuss, my first thought was "julia louis" from Seinfeld and Veep fame.

You should check out a wonderful book called "Baby Steps" by Dr. Leo Marvin. It was featured on Good Morning America.
