Played Sherlock in the rather famous BBC series of the same name, and is getting an increasing number of starring roles, for instance Khan in the second reboot Star Tre movie, Alan Turing (the lead) in The Imitation Game (was nominated for an Oscar for that one), and most famously and recently played Dr Strange.

I certainly think you could argue if James or Matthew Broderick was the more famous of the two. At least for a certain generation.

I didn't come up with Bob Hope because I always new him as a comedian and entertainer but never really a actor.

He did lots of movies, but I mostly remember his Road pictures with Bing Crosby, and for some reason Call Me Bwana popped into my head.

I tried about a dozen different spelling for Yul (most starting with an E). I would like to suggest accepting "Bob" for Mr. Brynner's first name... just because.

Robert and Alan Alda. James and Matthew Broderick. Any should be acceptable for those two names because both father and son were famous actors.

Osment...not particularly. Kutcher and Cumberbatch absolutely. But if they were all "A" list actors, the quiz wouldn't be very hard, would it?

I almost feel bad for Pauly Shore for the amount of hate he gets. His movies are dumb, but not that much dumber than those of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, or Adam Sandler.
