Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Carl Steven, Vadia Potenza, Stephen Manley, Joe W. Davis, Jacob Cogan, Zachary Quinto, Ethan Peck

Answer: Leonard Nimoy

The character of Spock was created by Gene Roddenberry for the original series of "Star Trek", which aired from 1966 until 1969. Leonard Nimoy portrayed the logical Vulcan for that series and all of the movies with the original series cast. He also appeared in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and in the first two alternate universe reboot movies in 2009 and 2013.

In "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock", four other actors portrayed Spock at different ages as he rapidly aged - Carl Steven, Vadia Potenza, Stephen Manley and Joe W. Davis.

Another young Spock was played by Jacob Cogan in "Star Trek" (2009) along with Zachary Quinto as the adult Spock for that and the subsequent reboot films in 2013 and 2016.

Lastly, Ethan Peck took on the role of Spock for the second season of "Star Trek: Discovery", which aired in 2019.
2. Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, Chris Pine, John Krasinski

Answer: Alec Baldwin

The character of Jack Ryan was created by novelist Tom Clancy, first appearing in print in "The Hunt for Red October" (1984). Through many novels, Jack Ryan advanced through the ranks of the CIA, beginning as an analyst and eventually becoming the National Security Advisor (and later, the President, although this is not reflected in any of the on-screen adaptations).

On screen, Jack Ryan first appeared in the film of the same name starring Alec Baldwin. The movie was released in 1990.

Harrison Ford took up the mantle for 1992's "The Patriot Games" and 1994's "Clear and Present Danger", both based on novels with the same titles.

Ben Affleck played the part for 2002's "The Sum of All Fears", again based on the novel of the same name.

The 2013 film "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" modernizes the character by placing him in the present as a new CIA recruit (played by Chris Pine), without following any preexisting Tom Clancy novel.

In 2018, a new television series began with John Krasinski in the role, bringing the character back to his beginnings again, with new storylines in the Tom Clancy style but not based on specific novels.
3. Anthony Hopkins, Aaron Thomas, Gaspard Ulliel, Mads Mikkelsen

Answer: Brian Cox

Created by novelist Thomas Harris, the blood-chilling character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (serial killer and cannibal) first appeared in the 1981 novel "Red Dragon", which was made into a 1986 film under the name "Manhunter" with Brian Cox in the role.

Anthony Hopkins took on the character in 1991's "The Silence of the Lambs" and in 2001's "Hannibal", both based on novels of the same name. In 2002, Hopkins reprised the role once again in another adaptation of "Red Dragon", this time with the same title.

The prequel novel "Hannibal Rising" (2006) was adapted for film in 2007 with Aaron Thomas portraying Hannibal Lecter as a child along with Gaspard Ulliel playing him as a young man.

In 2013, Mads Mikkelsen took the character of Hannibal Lecter to the small screen in "Hannibal", which ran for three seasons and 39 episodes, altogether.
4. Robert Lowery, Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Robert Pattinson

Answer: Lewis G. Wilson

Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, making his first appearance in "Detective Comics" #27 way back in 1939! The alter ego of the wealthy Bruce Wayne made his onscreen appearance in 1943 with a 15-part theatrical serial with Lewis G. Wilson playing the caped crusader.

Another serial entitled "Batman and Robin" came out in 1949, this time with Robert Lowery donning the cowl.

The campy television series that we all know and love debuted in 1966 with Adam West in the role, running for 120 episodes until 1968. The same cast also put out the first theatrical feature-length film in 1966, entitled "Batman".

While many animated and video game renditions of Batman exist, the many voice actors are too numerous to feature in this quiz.

In 1989, the Bat came back to the big screen with Michael Keaton putting on the cape. He would do two films before passing the role on to Val Kilmer in 1995 and then to George Clooney in 1997.

In 2005, a new series of movies began with Christian Bale as Batman in "Batman Begins". The two sequels would follow in 2008 ("The Dark Knight") and 2012 ("The Dark Knight Rises").

In 2016, Ben Affleck donned the cape as part of the DC Extended Universe movies, first appearing in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and also showing up in 2016's "Suicide Squad" and 2017's "Justice League".

In 2019, Robert Pattinson was cast in the role for the franchise's next reboot with "The Batman" (2021).
5. Raul Julia, Tim Curry, Glenn Taranto

Answer: John Astin

"The Addams Family" was created by cartoonist Charles Addams as a serial in "The New Yorker" in 1938, although the father of the family did not originally have a name. Charles described the character of Gomez Addams as "Husband to Morticia (if indeed they are married at all) ... a crafty schemer, but also a jolly man in his own way ... though sometimes misguided ... sentimental and often puckish - optimistic, he is in full enthusiasm for his dreadful plots ... is sometimes seen in a rather formal dressing gown ... the only one who smokes."

Gomez was chosen for the patriarch's name by the first actor who played the part on television, John Astin. He was given the choice between Repelli or Gomez. The show ran for two seasons from 1964 to 1966, airing 64 episodes in that time. Most of the cast would reprise their roles in a made-for-television movie in 1977, entitled "Halloween with the New Addams Family".

In 1991, Raul Julia took on the role of Gomez in "The Addams Family", and then again in 1993 with "Addams Family Values".

A made-for-TV movie came out in 1998 ("Addams Family Reunion") with Tim Curry in the role, a full-length pilot which led to a new television series that saw Glen Taranto play the part. "The New Addams Family" ran from 1998 to 1999 with 65 episodes in total. John Astin, the original Gomez, also appeared in a few episodes as 'Grandpapa' Addams.
6. Shinji Tōdō, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland

Answer: Nicholas Hammond

Spider-Man is the creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for Marvel Comics in 1962, first appearing in "Amazing Fantasy" #15. Peter Parker is bitten by a radioactive spider and gains powers of increased strength and agility, the ability to stick to surfaces, and sense danger.

As for adapting the character to the screen, the first live action television show followed two animated series, bringing Nicholas Hammond to the role for "The Amazing Spider-Man", which began with a full-length pilot in 1977 and was followed by two seasons of the show in 1978 and '79 for a total of 13 episodes.

At pretty much the same time, a Japanese rendition of "Spider-Man" (also called "Supaidāman") aired 41 episodes in the same two years, with Shinji Tōdō donning the red and blue Spidey-suit.

More animated shows followed, but it wasn't until 2002 that the character hit the movie theatres with Tobey Maguire in the role for "Spider-Man", followed by "Spider-Man 2" (2004) and "Spider-Man 3" (2007).

Andrew Garfield took on the role in a rebooted franchise for two films in "The Amazing Spider-Man" in 2012 and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in 2014.

Another change came with the reintroduction of the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Tom Holland playing the part. First appearing in "Captain America: Civil War" (2016), Holland would continue the role in multiple movies within the MCU, including his own features, starting with "Spider-Man: Homecoming" in 2017.
7. Bill Murray, Ramón Rodríguez, Patrick Stewart

Answer: David Doyle

While "Charlie's Angels" featured amazing crime-fighting women, the character of John Bosley was the father figure and the liaison between them and the mysterious Charlie, who is never seen. While also having many useful skills, Bosley was also often utilized as a comedic element in the show and subsequent movies.

David Doyle was the first actor to play Bosley during the original television show from 1976 to 1981, appearing in all but one of the 115 episodes.

Bill Murray took over the role in two "Charlie's Angels" films that were released in 2000 and 2003.

In 2011 a television series reboot was attempted, but was cancelled after only seven episodes. Bosley was played by Ramón Rodríguez in this endeavour.

The 2019 instalment of the "Charlie's Angel" movie franchise took a different spin, with multiple characters using the name 'Bosley', but there was one actor who specifically was JOHN Bosley - and that was Patrick Stewart - continuing in the same persona as his predecessors.
8. Michael Edwards, Dylan Abbot, Nick Stahl, Thomas Dekker, Christian Bale, Jason Clarke

Answer: Edward Furlong

In James Cameron's "Terminator" (1984), the character of John Connor is touted as the man who would rally humankind to save the future from the rise of the machines. We never actually meet John Connor in that first movie, because he is only the unborn child of Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese (who came from the future to protect Sarah from Schwarzenegger's Terminator).

John Connor made his first appearance in 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" with Edward Furlong in the role as a teenager. In the same film, Michael Edwards portrayed John Connor in a flash-forward, while Dylan Abbot was John Connor as a baby in Sarah's nightmare.

Nick Stahl portrayed John Connor as a young man in 2003's "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines".

In 2008, the television series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", John Connor was portrayed by Thomas Dekker. A total of 31 episodes were made over two seasons, ending in 2009.

In the fourth movie in the series, 2009's "Terminator Salvation", Christian Bale continued the character's story as he struggles to unite people to fight the machines, AFTER Judgment Day.

John Clarke took on the role of a very different John Connor in 2015's "Terminator Genisys", this time as the villain of the story.
9. Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, Joaquin Phoenix

Answer: Cesar Romero

The Joker is well-known as Batman's arch-nemesis - a purely psychotic villain that dresses somewhat like a clown but certainly doesn't act like one. Also created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, along with Jerry Robinson, the Joker first appeared in the debut issue of "Batman" in 1940.

His first appearance on television came in the 1966 Adam West "Batman" series (and accompanying 1966 film), with Cesar Romano playing the famous villain in 19 (of 120) episodes.

As with Batman himself, multiple animated versions of the Joker have been portrayed, but we are keeping to the live action renditions. The next one of those was Jack Nicholson in 1989's "Batman" opposite Michael Keaton.

Heath Ledger took on the mantle in the second Christian Bale movie ("The Dark Knight") in 2008, creating a much darker and more disturbing character than before.

In 2016's "Suicide Squad", Jared Leto put on the face paint in a secondary role to the film's primary villain, the Enchantress.

The Joker finally got the spotlight with his own story (and no Batman) in 2019's "The Joker", starring Joaquin Phoenix, who earned the Oscar for Best Actor for the role.
10. Osgood Perkins, Kurt Paul, Henry Thomas, Vince Vaughn, Freddie Highmore, Beckham Skodje, Luke Roessler, Nicholas Holmes

Answer: Anthony Perkins

Norman Bates was created by Robert Bloch in his 1959 horror novel, "Psycho" - revealing a dark and disturbed character capable of anything.

Just a year later, the character would come to life in the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name, with Anthony Perkins excellently portraying the killer. Three sequels would eventually be made, all starring Perkins (in 1983, 1986, and 1990). In 1983's "Psycho II", Anthony's son Osgood also portrayed Norman Bates as a child.

In 1988, a made-for-television film called "Bates Motel" was made as the pilot for a potential series that never materialized. Kurt Paul played Norman Bates in this instance, after also acting as Anthony Perkins' stunt double in the other films.

Another instance of Norman Bates at a younger age was fulfilled by Henry Thomas in "Psycho IV: The Beginning" (1990).

Vince Vaughn took on the role in the 1998 (poorly received) remake of the original movie, also titled "Psycho".

The last four names on the list are associated with the television series "Bates Motel", which aired from 2013 to 2017 over 50 episodes, and was set as a prequel series to the original film. While Freddie Highmore carried the role of Norman Bates primarily, the other three (Beckham Skodje, Luke Roessler, and Nicholas Holmes) all portrayed him at younger ages.
