Special Sub-Topic: Baa Baa Black Sheep
|This person could have perhaps been a black sheep to her family when she had an unsuccessful marriage (or two), shaved her head, and of course when she did drugs. She hopes nobody will "Hold it Against [her]", but she was still certainly a disgrace to her family. Who is she?|
Britney Spears. Britney Spears (born 1981) had two unsuccessful marriages early in her life, one with Jason Alexander (not the same as the actor from "Seinfeld"), which was annuled after just over two days, and of course with Kevin Federline.

Jamie Lynn Spears. Jamie Lynn Spears (born 1991) is perhaps best known for her role as Zoey in the Nickelodeon show "Zoey 101". However, when she became pregnant as a teenager, her fans were shocked.

|With two stints in rehab from drug and alcohol abuse while still only a young teenager, this actress was probably a black sheep to her famous family.

Drew Barrymore. Drew Barrymore (born in 1975) had a very difficult childhood where she drank and did drugs, and was generally not a "good girl".

|This young actor, famous for his roles in "Home Improvement" and "Tom and Huck", would become a black sheep at the turn of the century when he starred in two movies where he portrayed a gay character. Though he denied the claim, rumors that he was gay probably made life difficult for him and his family. Simba would be disappointed. Who is this actor?|
Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Jonathan Taylor Thomas (1981) portrayed a gay character in both "Speedway Junky" (1999) and "Common Ground" (2000), which sparked rumors that he was gay. However, he told "The Advocate" in 2000 that these rumors were false, and he also said in an interview with Jay Leno that he was not gay. Nevertheless, these rumors probably caused a lot of grief for Jonathan and his family.
|This rapper and actor had many fans when he appeared on "Dancing With the Stars" in 2006. In fact, he had so many fans that the judges had to give him scores of two and three just to send him home! When his son, Romeo, was later on the show, he was given a lot of flak about his dad's bad dancing. What black sheep of the family is this?|
Master P. Master P (born 1967) is a famous rapper who sang "Make 'Em Say Uhhh!". He also starred in many movies and television shows, including the 2003-2006 TV series "Romeo!" which was about his son, Romeo (known as Lil Romeo at the time). Master P became notorious for his bad dancing on "Dancing With the Stars", but diehard fans kept him alive for much longer than the judges wanted. So they gave him the lowest scores ever given on the show, just so he would be sent home.
|On "Grey's Anatomy", one actor said some horrible things about another actor on the show, and was thus fired. He was no doubt a black sheep to his family because of what he had said. What was the character that this man played?|
Preston Burke. Isaiah Washington (born 1963) portrayed Preston Burke up through season 3 of "Grey's Anatomy". He was fired from the show and removed from the cast because of comments he made about T. R. Knight's sexuality. This also caused T. R. Knight to leave the show, so they killed off his character, George O'Malley, by having him save a woman from being hit by a bus, and thus being hit by the bus himself.
|This Aflac voice actor was fired because of his comments/jokes in March 2011 about the disasters in Japan. He was well-loved up to that point, and certainly became a black sheep to his family after his rude remarks. What actor is this?|
Gilbert Gottfried. Gilbert Gottfried (born 1955) is a comedian who is known for his voice roles of Iago the parrot from "Aladdin" (1992) and the Aflac duck. However, in 2001, just a few weeks after 9/11, he made jokes about this attack, and then in 2011, he made rude jokes about the earthquakes and tsumanis in Japan. Since most of Aflac's business is with Japan, he was fired shortly thereafter. His family must have viewed him as a disgrace after those comments.
