Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This celebrity appeared in the highly successful 1977 comedy TV series "Three's Company". Who portrayed Jack Tripper?

Answer: John Ritter

John portrayed Jack, who was studying to be a chef and shared rent expenses with two women room mates. After that series ended, he had a spin-off from the show in 1984, called "Three's a Crowd". John had found success again on the 2002 hit comedy "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter".

His credits included: a 1992 TV series "Heart Afire" and 1987 "Hooperman". He starred in 1990 movies "It", "Problem Child" and in 1992 Problem Child 2", "Sling Blade" (1992) and in 2003 "Bad Santa". He also provided the voice of "Clifford, the Big Red Dog" TV series in 2000 and the 2004 movie "Clifford's Really Big Movie".

He also appeared in many TV movies including: "A Smoky Mountain Christmas" (1986), "Gramps" (1995), "A Child's Wish" (1997) and "Lethal Vows" (1999).

He was producer of "Man of the Year" (2002) and TV series "Anything but Love" (1987). He made various guest appearances during his career including "Hollywood Squares" and TV series "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" in 2002. John was the son of legendary country singer, Tex Ritter and actress Dorothy Fay. John's first wife was Nancy Morgan.

He had three children from that marriage. His second wife was Amy Yasbeck and they had a daughter, Stella. John has a Hollywood Walk of Fame star next to his father. He was nominated for numerous awards during his career including: daytime Emmys and a People's Choice Award. John was involved in the annual Cerebral Palsy Telethon. His brother, Tom suffered from the disease. He was born Jonathan Southworth Ritter on September 17, 1948. He died on September 11, 2003, which was his daughter's birthday, and just days short of his own birthday and anniversary. John remains one of my favorite actors and I will never forget him! By the way, all the other choices given also died in 2003.
2. Who portrayed Dan Tanna on the 1978 TV series "Vega$"?

Answer: Robert Urich

Dan Tanna was a Vietnam veteran, who became a private investigator in glamorous Las Vegas, of course. He would seek help from his secretary, Bea and Binzer always gave the show an interesting twist. Tanna lived behind "The Desert Inn" casino, which was owned by Phillip Roth. Urich also appeared in the TV movies "The President's Man: A Line in the Sand" (2002) and "Night of the Wolf" (2002).

He was in the TV series "Emeril" (2001), "The Love Boat: The New Wave" (1998) and "Spenser: For Hire" (1985) which also had three annual follow-up movies of "Spencer" (1993 to 1995).

He also was in the mini series "Lonesome Dove" (1989) and "Amerika" (1987). Robert Urich was born on December 19, 1946 and died of synovial cell carcinoma (cancer) on April 16, 2002. Sadly, with the choices given on this question, all celebrities died of cancer.

His hits included: "Rocky Mountain High", "Annie's Song", "Back Home Again", "Country Roads" and "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." He also wrote "Leaving on a Jet Plane" which was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary. "Leaving on a Jet Plane" has featured in various movies including: "Catch Me if You Can" (2002) and "The Wedding Planner" (2001). Denver co-starred in the 1986 TV movie "The Christmas Gift".

5. Who starred as Bluto in the movie "Animal House"?

Answer: John Belushi

Belushi portrayed Bluto perfectly. I can't think of anyone better to cast than John for this role as a funny, sloppy, ill-mannered college student. Belushi and Aykroyd were teamed together in various skits. One of their most famous was "The Blues Brothers" that was later made into a movie in 1980.

A few of his movies included "1941" (1979) and "Continental Divide" (1981). Belushi was born on January 24, 1949 in Chicago, IL. He died on March 5, 1982 of a drug overdose of heroine and cocaine. What do these celebrities have in common? They were members of the cast of "Saturday Night Live" at sometime during their career.
6. This celebrity found fame but not happiness. He is remembered for his role of Chico Rodriguez in the 1974 TV series "Chico and the Man". Who was he?

Answer: Freddie Prinze

"Chico and the Man" became a huge overnight success and his life was "Looking Good!" as he would say. He made a comedy album of that title. Success affected Freddie. His career took off when he did his comedy routine on Johnny Carson's "The Tonight Show" in December 1973.

He changed his name to Freddie Prinze indicating he was "The Prince of Comedy". (Bob Hope was "The King of Comedy"). Frederick Karl Pruetzel was born on June 22, 1954 in New York, NY. He put a 32 caliber pistol to his head on January 28, and was rushed to the hospital.

He went into a coma and he died at the age of 22 on January 29, 1977. A suicide note was found. His close friends were shocked that a man with so many possibilities ahead of him had committed suicide. He left behind an infant son, Freddie Prinze Jr. who has made a name for himself in his own right. All of these given celebrities' deaths were ruled as suicide.
7. Who portrayed Lucas Wolenczak in the 1993 TV series "SeaQuest DSV"?

Answer: Jonathan Brandis

"Seaquest DSV" was a science fiction TV series. Lucas was a well educated young man and tried to make the right decisions. Brandis starred in the 1990 movie "The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter" and the TV movies "111 Gramercy Park" (2003), "It" (1990) and "Good King Wenceslas" (1994).

His voice can be heard on 1994 movie "Aladdin", "Ghost Dad" and "Oliver and Company". His last work was released in 2005, after his death: "A Fate Totally Worse Than Death". He also made guest appearances on various TV series including: "Saved by the Bell: The College Years" (as himself), "Blossom", "The Wonder Years", "Murder She Wrote", "Who's The Boss", "Full House" and "L.A. Law". Brandis was born on April 13, 1976.

He had been depressed and mentioned suicide to various friends.

His friend found him when he had attempted suicide by hanging and he was rushed to the hospital; he died on November 12, 2003. He was only 27. Sadly, all these celebrities committed suicide before the age of 30.
8. This person is commonly referred to as "The People's Princess".

Answer: Lady Diana

Diana was referred to as "The People's Princess" because everyone adored her and felt like they knew her. Diana Frances Spencer was born on July 1, 1961. In an elaborate ceremony that was televised, she was married in Saint Paul's Cathedral on July 29, 1981 to Prince Charles of England.

They had two sons: Prince William and Prince Harry. The couple divorced and her title remained Princess of Wales. Diana was known for her kindness, compassion, love of her children, and her breath taking wardrobe.

She also gave back to the world by being an advocate for over 150 charities. She was one of the first to offer support to AIDS victims and raised people's awareness of the disease. She died August 31, 1997 in a car accident, with Dodi al-Fayed, while being chased by paparazzi in Paris, France.

This giving, extraordinary and beautiful woman was only 36 years of age. She was survived by two sons: Prince William and Prince Harry.
9. Which celebrity guest starred on various TV shows and was a TV game host to the game "Win Lose or Draw"?

Answer: Bert Convy

Convy co-produced this show with Burt Reynolds. It was a game show where two teams, each with one player and two celebrities were given a phrase or topic and someone on the team drew the clue. Whichever team guessed the answer from the clue, won points and so many points made a round. Convy made many guest appearances in his career.

Some TV series were: "Love Boat", "Hotel", "Charlie's Angels", "Fantasy Island", "Bewitched", "The Partridge Famiy", "Love American Style" and "77 Sunset Strip". He was host of "Third Degree!", "People Do the Craziest Things" and a TV game show called "Tattle Tales", which he won an Emmy Award for.

He also appeared on other games shows such as "Password" and "Password Plus" and was a guest host for "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson. Bernard Whalen (Bert) Convy was born on July 23, 1933 and died on July 15, 1991 of a brain tumor at age 57. All of these men were in the entertainment business.
10. Who portrayed Dr. David Marcus in the "Star Trek" movies?

Answer: Merritt Butrick

Dr. Carol Marcus had a son that she never told the father, Jim Kirk about. The newly aquainted father and son had conflicts but were working to resolve them and hugged for the first time in Kirk's cabin. In the next movie, David gave his life to save the other crew members on the planet.

He died a hero. Butrick appeared in the movie "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" and "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock." Butrick also made an appearance on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" on the episode titled "Symbiosis".

Some may remember one of his first gigs as an actor on the TV series "Square Pegs" as Johnny Slash. He was born on September 3, 1959 in Gainesville, Florida. Sadly, he died of AIDS on March 17, 1989. All of these celebrities have died from AIDS. Steve Tracy was 34. Hall was 45. Rambo was 52.
