— Ace I don't know if anyone else shares this kink: I've got this crazy obsession about identifying minor players from movies and figuring out where I've seen them before.
I was set off on this because I just read a cool trivial question that feeds into this obsession. We'll call this question 1:
1) Name the one human being who has been assaulted and/or killed by an Alien (from Alien), a Predator, and a Terminator.
But that set me off on a binge, so here's more:
2) Apart from the person who is the answer to 1), name three other people who've been assaulted and/or killed by both an Alien and a Terminator.
3) Apart from the person who is the answer to 1), name one other person who's been assaulted and/or killed by both a Terminator and a Predator. (This is sort of a trick question.)
4) Name two people who've met both Robocop and Special Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks.
5) Name the person who's met characters named Robocop, Hannibal Lecter, and "Arnold Schwarzenegger."
6) Name one person who's been killed by Axel Foley, James Bond, and Rambo. He also got his ass kicked by Prince.
7) Name one person who's met both Special Agent Dale Cooper and Cabin Boy.

Nice. I had no idea he was the "punk leader" in Terminator. I should've known. Cameron is addicted to Bill Paxton. (Can't blame him.)

#3 Tricky, but not too tricky for me: Arnold Schwarzenegger, clearly.
But I have no idea on #s 4-6.

I thought of him, but then I forgot him. There are three people who've been attacked by aliens and terminators.

#1 is, as mentioned, Bill Paxton.
#2 is Michael Beihn and Lance Henriksen (soon to also be #1 this summer)
#3 is Arnold, as mentioned.
#4 is Miguel Ferrer (an FBI forensics guy, IIRC), and Ray Wise, a.k.a. Leland Palmer. Oh, and Ronny Cox also met Axel Foley-- damn small world!
#5 is Steven Berkoff, he of the annoying mole in the middle of his forehead. Beverly Hills Cop, Octopussy, Rambo II, and Under a Cherry Moon (you're a sick man Ace for bringing that one up)
#6 Russ Tamblyn-- Laura Palmer's shrink, and Chocki from Cabin Boy
#7 Carl "Action Jackson" Weathers
Tough ones, man!

(I, one of three people in America who actually thought Dave Letterman did a good job hosting the Oscars. I mean, at least I laughed, which is more than anyone can say during one of the Whoopicraptacularfests).

I also added an new question #5.

As for the new #5. . . let me pontificate a moment, here at 5:17 in the morning. . .
Posted by: Dave at May 29, 2004 12:09 AM (mrpxK)
I mean besides him.

And your new #5 is evil, 'cause the quotes make me think it's someone who called himself "Arnold Schwarzenegger" but wasn't actually him, which hurts my head. Either that, or Reuters put the scare quotes there.
BTW, I can think of someone killed by an Alien and Arnold Schwarzenegger, but not as a Terminator. As long as we're trading trivia.

Ronny Cox, Michael Ironside, Michael Wincott, the horrible Maria Conchita Alonzo, even Patrick MacGoohan... these folks just keep showing up over and over.

BTW, her, Bill Paxton, and Lance Henriksen-- Near Dark. First burning vampires I ever saw.
Posted by: Dave at May 29, 2004 12:16 AM (mrpxK)
Tom Noonan-- the axe guy in Last Action Hero, the Dollarhyde in Manhunter, and Cain in Robocop 2. (BTW, can someone tell me how the same Irvin Kershner who made Empire Strikes Back also made the tripe that is Robocop 2? Ugh.)
My brain is now empty of all useful facts. Glad I have the weekend before I go back to work.

Moreover, I believe that Matthew Broderick made use of a COWBELL in Wargames AND in The Cable Guy, but I'm not sure if this is relevant.
I know that Reese Witherspoon used a COWBELL in Election, but, unfortunately it was not in a scene that featured Matthew Broderick.
However, for what it counts, Mr. Big had a COWBELL in his glovebox in Episode #28 ("Guys Like It "Well Done"), and everyone knows that Sarah Jessica Parker is married to Matthew Broderick....hence we have a tenuous, but real!, COWBELL connection.
Also, Frankie Muniz had a COWBELL on his dresser in season two of Malcolm in the Middle. He never touched it, but it was there. Additionally, Matthew Broderick never had a cameo on Malcolm in the Middle, despite the Cindy Adams inspired rumours that he was to appear on the show AND was going to "touch the COWBELL."

Matthew Broderick appeared on HBO several times, most notably in the unexplained extended run that "The Freshman" received during the late 90's, although he did not use a COWBELL in this movie...although Marlon Brando, who also did not use a COWBELL in this movie, may (repeat MAY) have had a COWBELL strung about his neck as he portrayed Col. Kurtz in Apocalypse Now...but it is very difficult to discern --- with certainty --- the presence of a COWBELL in said movie.
We're pretty sure that Martin Sheen did not have a COWBELL, but there may have been a COWBELL present on his swiftboat. Coincidentally, Martin Sheen's son, Charlie, had a COWBELL in his dumptruck in the underrated "Men At Work" -- which did not feature and/or reference Matthew Broderick. Strangely enough.
There was a brief glimpse of COWBELL in "Married to the Mob", but that goes without saying. Any movie that is run, ad nauseum on the Comedy Channel, is sure to feature COWBELL (although, despite some resemblance to Matthew Modine and the same FIRST name, Matthew Broderick did NOT appear in "Married to the Mob")
Frankie Muniz, according to US WEEKLY, SAW "Married to the Mob" and particularly loved the COWBELL featured scene....unfortunately, we have absolutely, positively, no PROOF, EVIDENCE or OTHERWISE that Matthew Broderick saw "Married to the Mob" and/or saw/witnessed/enjoyed the COWBELL scene therein.

It is very, very frustrating. And, oddly, I received ZERO hits when I typed in Matthew Broderick and cowbell.
A lot of loose shit going on at IMDB if you ask me.

I can't be the only one. 'Fess up.

Still, this quiz is an unrivaled useless information source.
