Was it Ving Rhames or Michael Clarke Duncan?

November 22, 2010

Pop Quiz, pop culture fans. The film credits of two popular character actors – Ving Rhames (left) and Michael Clarke Duncan (right) are the subject. Do you know your Ving from your Michael Clarke? Test your knowledge and find out. No cheating!

  1. The 1996 Demi Moore box office bomb “Striptease”?
  2. Co-starred in the Tom Hanks film “The Green Mile”?
  3. Plays Luther Stickell in the Mission Impossible franchise?
  4. Nominated for an Oscar?
  5. Cried at an award ceremony, “Is Mr. Jack Lemmon here? Would you please come up here, sir?” Before giving his Golden Globe away to the veteran actor? As an aside, when the camera panned to Nicholson he mouthed, “I’ll take it.”
  6. Co-starred in a film with Bruce Willis?
  7. Which one has co-starred with Billy Bob more times?
  8. Currently dating a reality television “star”?
  9. Which one is older?
  10. Played Kojack in the short lived reboot?

Answers will appear in the comment sections at some point. Good Luck, everyone!

    My guesses:

    Too much fun! I think I got most of these based on how much I watch the movie offerings on TBS. My guesses below:

    1. Ving
    2. Duncan
    3. Ving
    4. Duncan
    5. Ving
    6. Duncan
    7. Um.Ving?
    8. Duncan
    9. Um. Ving?
    10. Ving

    ***
    This quiz also makes think how much these actors worked in the 90s to early 2000s, but don’t hear so much from either of them anymore. I think Duncan has worked more recently than Ving, but I could be wrong.

    They were all over the place in the late 90s and early 00s. I think they are still doing stuff and I know the one in the MI franchise will be back to work shortly.

    Wait, we need polling buttons or something…
    I know what I thought when I read the questions, now, I’m all reading everyone else’s answers and getting all farmischt.
    EXCELLENT way to go waste time on IMDB, though!
