I think it's time for a game! Don't you? I mean these boards are fo fun, right?

So, I'm thinking of a role that has been played by several different actors. Whoever first guesses the role wins.

The winner then gets to host the next round.

I'll list the actors one at a time.

Round 1, Actor 1:

Elliot Gould.

So if anyone can guess it with just Elliot Gould, s/he'll get ten points. (Although points really don't matter.)

I'll name another actor in a couple of hours.

I can't keep you folks from IMDBing and IMDBing is allowed but it isn't fun. Try not to IMDB or google if you can.

Only one guess per player per actor. (i.e. Don't IMDB Eliot Gould and just cut and paste every role he's had. That's not fair, not fun, and just plain... obsessive.)

1) Eliot Gould
2) James Caan

Yep. I was eventually going to work my way down to Bogart,

Congratulations.

Your turn.

Okay, so the rules are a little odd, so if you don't understand them, please ask a question.

I'm thinking of an actor who's played, among other roles, a jewel thief, an MP, and a love-sick merchant. Name the actor.

Now for the clues: I will name a film that has a relationship to one of the films referred to above, but I won't tell you the what the relationship is.

Okay, here goes, clue #1:

Au Revoir, Les Enfants

Peter Sellers?

Oh, I doubt it highly. Does "Au Revior, Les Enfant" have an actor/actress in common with one of movies.

(Why can't I remember a single thing about "Au Revior, les Enfants"? I know I saw it.)

Nope, not Peter Sellers.

Clue #2: Macbeth

(Hint: Think beyond actor/actress for the relationship.)

Okay, let me see if I have this straight. You are thinking of an actor. Are we to assume "actor" is masculine or are you meaning it to be gender neutral? This actor has played three different different roles in three different films. One of these three films shares something in common with with "Au Revoire, les enfants". One of these films, maybe a different film, has something else in common with "MacBeth".

> so if you don't understand them, please ask a question.

Okay, here are several questions.
1) is "actor" nesc. masculine?
2) Are the jewel thief, MP, and love-sick merchant roles three distinctly different roles?
3) Are the roles in three distinctly different movies?
4) Are the roles in many possibly multiple different movies? (e.g. could the actor have been a jewel thief in more than one movie? i.e. Is it feasible that the movies you are "referencing" are more than three in number?)
5) When you give names of movies as clues, are the films with which these clues share a relationship *only* the movies in which the actor plays either a jewel thief, an MP or a love -sick merchant?
(e.g. Are we to assume "Au Revoir, les enfants" and "MacBeth", and any future clue, refer to the films in which the actor plays one of the roles mentioned?)
6) When you give names of movies as clues, are the films with which these clues share a relationship *any* movie with the actor?
(e.g. Are we to assume "Au Revoir, les enfants" and "MacBeth", and any future clue, refer to any films the actors been in?)
7) When you give names of movies as clues, are the films with which these clues share a relationship are the *same* movie? (e.g. Are we to assume "Au Revoir, les enfants" and "MacBeth", and any future clue, refer to the same movie?)
8) When you give names of movies as clues, are the films with which these clues share a relationship always *different* movie?
(e.g. Are we to assume "Au Revoir, les enfants" and "MacBeth", and any future clue, refer to distinctly different films?)
9) Do the clues have different relationships?
(e.g. Should we assume the relationship between "Au Revoir, Les Enfants" and its film, the relationship between "Macbeth" and its film, and the relationships between any futer clue and its film, are all different relationships?)
10) Do the clues all have the same relationship?
(e.g. Should we assume the relationship between "Au Revoir, Les Enfants" and its film is the same as the relationship between "Macbeth" and its film and the relationships between any further clue and its film will be the same relationship?)
