IQ3: Take a DQ.

Slow Moving Vehicle, note that atimnie already asked about the person being a journalist, so you have one more DQ.

1: Correct, 'enry 'iggins.
2: Correct, Rex Harrison
3: Hero, from the Greek myth of Hero and Leander.

DQ1: Player of a team sport? (As opposed to a golfer or runner or tennis player, etc.)
DQ2: Celebrity endorser?

It looks like all DQs have been asked, unless someone wants to take up EH's remaining two. Please get in all final questions* in the the form of "Are you Firstname Lastname?" by midnight EDT tonight (9/2).

*and the two leftover DQs if you want to

Yes, I am Honus Wagner! Depicted on one of the rarest and most valuable baseball cards in the world, and acclaimed as a great player in his own right.

Next round (and the September thread) goes to the Prof.
