Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Ken Jeong

Answer: Medical doctor

Before Ken Jeong got into entertainment, he was a medical doctor. He was born in the United States and came from a Korean family. He got into acting while an undergrad at Duke. He graduated in 1990 and got his MD from UNC School of Medicine in 1995. All throughout, he kept feeding his passion for acting. His residency was in internal medicine and he began practicing, however, he kept performing at stand-up comedy clubs.

By 2006, Ken Jeong had given up practicing medicine to take up acting first time. His first film was "Knocked Up" that was released in 2007. Since then, he has appeared in many films and television shows and has even hosted several awards shows. All the while, Ken Jeong has kept up his medical license, which has come in handy when there were medical emergencies on set.
2. Gerard Butler

Answer: Lawyer

Gerard Butler is a Scottish actor. In school, Butler was a good student and won a place as a law student at University of Glasgow School of Law. His parents broke up when he was young and he didn't reconnect with his father until he was 16; that was an emotional time for Gerard. However, his father passed away a few years later from cancer, something that left Gerard emotionally scarred. While still a law student, Gerard Butler allowed his life to tailspin.

On a gap year in the United States, Gerard Butler got arrested and was constantly drunk. After he graduated from law school, he continued his disorderly habits. He was hired by a law firm in Edinburgh, but was soon fired. At this point, Butler moved to London in order "to be famous". He soon landed his first acting role, which led to more, and even more successful parts, making him into the world-renown actor he is.
3. Channing Tatum

Answer: Stripper

Channing Tatum is an American actor. He was born in Alabama, then moved to Mississippi and then to Tampa, Florida. He struggled in school with his ADD and dyslexia and worked odd jobs when he graduated from school and dropped out of college after receiving a football scholarship. At some point, Tatum began working as a male stripper in order to make ends meet.

When he moved to Miami, Channing Tatum was discovered as a model and a dancer. He appeared in several magazines and eventually in movies. When he found sustained success in this kind of work, he used his experience as a stripper to write the movies "Magic Mike" and "Magic Mike XXL".
4. Harrison Ford

Answer: Carpenter

Harrison Ford is a well-known award-winning American actor. Coming from a mixed Jewish and Irish-Catholic household, Ford says that he was raised "Democrat". In high school, Ford participated in student radio while in college at Ripon College, he took a drama class to help him get over his stage fright and shyness.

Harrison Ford moved to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in radio, however, this did not pan out. He then was signed to a talent agency but only got bit parts in movies and in television. This was not enough income to support him and his growing family, so Ford taught himself carpentry and became a professional. He kept up trying to get roles and it eventually panned out, as he got bigger and bigger roles. Nowadays, who doesn't know who Han Solo or Indiana Jones is?
5. Steve Buscemi

Answer: Firefighter

Steve Buscemi is an American actor. In high school, Buscemi was interested in acting and wrestling, both of which he apparently did very well. When he graduated, he tried to go to college at Nassau Community College but then switched to study acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York City. In order to pay his way, he worked as a firefighter in the city for about four years from 1980 to 1984.

Steve Buscemi got his big break when he started teaming up with the Coen Brothers. "Miller's Crossing" really showcased his abilities and got his name out there. He will probably be best remembered as Mr. Pink in Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs". Apart from live acting in both television and cinema, Buscemi has also done voice work for many animated films.
6. Danny DeVito

Answer: Hairstylist

Danny DeVito is an American actor. He was born and raised in New Jersey and went to boarding school as a teenager. He worked in his sister's beauty salon as a hairdresser and beautician for a while before going to study drama and theatre. His first breakthrough came on the television show "Taxi" which got DeVito a lot of recognition.

Aside from his successful career as an actor (can we ever forget Vincent Benedict in "Twins"?), Danny DeVito has also worked as a director as well as a producer. Some production accolades are "Pulp Fiction" and "Erin Brockovich" and he directed "The War of the Roses", "Matilda", and "Hoffa", amongst others.
7. Hugh Jackman

Answer: Gym teacher

Hugh Jackman is an Australian actor. When his parents divorced, Hugh was just eight years old, and he remained in Australia with his father and brothers. He always enjoyed drama, just he thought of it more as a hobby than as a career. Before starting his university studies, Hugh Jackman spent a gap year in England working as a physical education teacher. Upon his return, Jackman studied and graduated with a BA in communications.

At this point, Hugh Jackman realized that perhaps acting might be the way to go for him. He took a one-year acting course and soon after landed a role on a television show. He also acted on stage, however, the iconic role for him was that of Wolverine in the "X-Men" franchise. This role spanned 17 years and landed Jackman a Guinness World Record for the length of the portrayal.
8. Jake Gyllenhaal

Answer: Lifeguard

Jake Gyllenhaal is an American actor. He appeared in several films as a child actor and he was born into a very cinematic family. His father is Stephen Gyllenhaal, a film director, and his mother is Naomi Foner, a producer and screenwriter. Even his older sister, Maggie, went into acting; it was only natural for Jake to do so as well. In order to support himself, his parents insisted that Jake have a job. He worked as a busboy, as well as a lifeguard, to get some income.

One of Jake Gyllenhaal's iconic films is that of "Donnie Darko", which was not initially successful, but gained a huge cult following. However, Gyllenhaal's acting ability began to show through in several roles and received his first Oscar nod for "Brokeback Mountain". Over the years, Jake Gyllenhaal has really been able to establish himself as a successful actor.
9. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Answer: Bodybuilder

Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in Austria, but now has American citizenship as well. From the young age of 15, Schwarzenegger began lifting weights and toning his body. He soon became fully immersed in bodybuilding and won the Mr. Universe competition at the age of 20. He then won the Mr. Olympia contest seven straight times. Through bodybuilding, Schwarzenegger helped himself realize his dream to move to the United States, something he finally accomplished in 1968 (perhaps illegally).

Arnold Schwarzenegger had such a thick accent that his first acting roles were either dubbed over later, or he was given minimal speaking lines. He broke into stardom with the 1982 film, "Conan the Barbarian", however, he is probably most remembered as the Terminator from the films of the same name. After his acting career began slowing down, Schwarzenegger began to dabble in politics and eventually became the Governor of California for the maximum two terms between 2003 and 2011.
10. Adam Driver

Answer: Marine

Before Adam Driver was an actor, he served in the United States military as a Marine. He was born in San Diego, later moved to Indiana, and was self-described as a "misfit" during his high school years. He had various odd jobs when he graduated but could not get into the Julliard School when he tried.

After the 9/11 events in the United States, Adam Driver enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He trained as a mortar man and was due to ship out with his unit to Iraq in 2004, when he suffered a broken sternum. This gave him a medical discharge. After his service he finally got into the Julliard School and graduated in 2009. He started acting on stage before getting on screen. His big breakthrough was the television series, "Girls", for which he received multiple nominations for an Emmy.
