I tried to make this game as easy as possible, honest.

I'm thinking of a movie. It's up to you to guess what it is.

Step 1: Examine the below list of 27 actors. Group them into 9 groups of 3 each, so that all three actors starred in the same movie. This will give you a list of 9 movies.

Step 2: Think of a 4th actor from each movie, so that you get 9 more actors.

Step 3: Group them into 3 groups of 3, as in step 1, to get 3 movies.

Step 4: Once again think of a 4th actor from each movie, to get 3 more actors.

Step 5: Wht movie did those 3 actors appear in together?

Work cooperatively, use IMDB, and offer me sexual favors in exchange for hints.

The list of 27:

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Alan Alda
Angela Bassett
Lloyd Bridges
Carol Burnett
Andrew Dice Clay
Danny DeVito
Richard Dreyfuss
Clint Eastwood
Denholm Elliott
Robert Englund
Lawrence Fishburne
Harrison Ford
Jodie Foster
James Garner
Peter Graves
Angelica Huston
Tommy Lee Jones
Diane Keaton
Matthew McConaughey
Wayne Newton
Leonard Nimoy
John Ritter
Martin Sheen
George Takei
J.T. Walsh
Paul Winfield

I should give an example to make this clearer. Suppose the original list had Morgan Freeman, Rene Russo, and Cuba Gooding. You would group them together and get Outbreak. The 4th actor you might pick is Dustin Hoffman. Suppose two other actors you got as the 4th actor from other movies are Ben Stiller and Robert DiNiro. You'd conclude that the movie was Meet the Fokkers.

Etcetera.

Nice one. I had guessed those three for the last three films, but couldn't place them all in one movie. But I find Barbara Hershey mildly annoying so I block out films that have had her in them. And I've never seen Capricorn One.

Archive Guy, you're not reusing an actor from the first round in the second round, are you?
And, if you did reuse an actor from the first round (which is kind of a nice twist), is it entirely possible that you've mixed up two very similar actresses names?Because if you combine Charlton Heston (this time from Touch of Evil), Yul Brynner (10 Commandments) and C.B. DeMille (Sunset Boulevard), you get "The Buccaneer", which also starred Inger Stevens. Henry Fonda and Lew Ayres (who was in "Holiday") were in "Advise and Consent"--but with Inga Swenson! Am I right?

Remember that Advise & Consent will not necessarily have any cast members in common with Sunset, Commandments or Evil. The three (Oscar-nominated) actors you pull from those casts will have all starred together in a movie with another (Oscar-nominated) actor who did appear in A&C

And, no it's not Nancy Olson. It's someone with an even bigger role.

St. Elmo's Fire: ??
Tootsie: Geena Davis

I think that's what you have so far. Also, I just noticed that I did double one of my first round actors into the second round, although it was unintentional. Obviously not from the same film. Sorry.


you never answered my post (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showpost.php?p=6682720&postcount=217)

Paul Gleason is correct for The Breakfast Club, assuming that's what you meant. (You may have just been having some bizarre out-in-the-open sexual fantasy for all I know ;) )

That is correct.

BTW, it's been driving me nuts that Google Ads has been trying to spoil this by advertising Joan Cusack's new flick!
