I'm sorry this has taken so long, I've been a bit busy. Can't even come up with a decent question. So the first person to name 10 actors who are also scientologists, gets to ask the next brain-burner.

I was shocked when I checked the lists. The fact that Beck is one, messes with my head. Have a look for yourselves.

I fell short of naming 10 so I took a look for myself on Wikipedia.

You're right... The list is long and contains some very surprising names. I've long wondered what it is that lures these people in.

I don't mind a bit of research, go ahead and end this thing.

There are a lot more that may surprise you.

Name the only person to have a credited role in both of the comedy classics Animal House and Caddyshack.

(For extra credit, who appeared in both, briefly, but was only credited in the former?)

These two films comprise exactly half of this actress's screen credits. But neither is a blink-or-you'll-miss-it part. She appears in several scenes in each, with lines and everything.

Credited as writer on both films, he has one line - and a distinctive look - in A.H., and basically just fills a chair in one scene in C.S.

The person who had the credited role in both films is Sarah Holcomb, who was Maggie O'Hooligan in Caddyshack and Clorette DePasto in Animal House. The person who was in both but only had an on-screen credit for one is Douglas Kenney, who was Stork in Animal House and an uncredited dinner guest in Caddyshack. Kenney was also a writer for both films.

Bingo!

I love stumping people with this question because you'd definitely expect there to be more overlap of the casts -- The films were made just 2 years apart, both featured SNL alumni, had Kenney and Harold Ramis as writers, and shared a certain comic sensibility.

People are always surprised to learn that little Sarah was the only link in the cast lists.

OK, wildhartlivie, whatcha got for us?

And as added trivia, Doug Kenney was the reason that Animal House was made! He was the star writer on the Lampoon, and one day, he went to the editor and told him he was quitting cuz he was bored. Desperate to keep him on, the editor literally blurted out off the top of his head "You can't leave! We're . . . uh . . . MAKING A MOVIE!" After Kenney said he'd stay, the editor then had to get the ball rolling on making a movie, and Animal House was born!

Two parts, about film directors, in anticipation of Oscar season.

Part 1: There is over a 40 year span in age between the youngest film director to win an Academy Award and the oldest. Name them.

Part 2: Name the only Oscar winning Best Actress to be directed by her husband (and live-in boyfriends don't count).

Okay, some hints.
Part 1: The youngest was a very early Oscar win, the oldest was a very recent one.
Part 2: The brother of the director in question was also the film's producer.

Uhm ... not sure about these without tapping my research fingers, but
Part 1. I'll guess either Jackie Coogan or Shirley Temple for youngest and oldest ... George Burns? Peter O'Toole?

was Part 2 - Frances McDormand?

Part 1: This is for youngest and oldest winning director.

Part 2 was indeed Frances McDormand.

BaftaBabe is halfway there!!


More hint:
The oldest winning director is a very notable actor and director (think in context of Italian food). Get this and I'll give on the youngest.

Good thing because I know the oldest was Eastwood and I have no idea who the youngest was!
