Jillie's Trivia Challenge, the THIRD

Ok, Barrelhousers. The challenge here is this:

You know the CHARACTERS and the SHOWS they played on. But none of these folks were ever household names. Without imdb-ing the answers, how many of these actors can you NAME?

The last one is Frank Bonnor. Don't ask me how I know that, I really have no idea.

These are hard. Where's Kistulentz when you need him?

I bet TMC is completely lost.

jill alexander essbaum said...

Yup, that's Frank Bonner a la Herb Tarleck...

Yes, admittedly, these is difficult. I'll do an easy one next time.

JP said...

You better do an easy one. Because not only am I memory-tarded, and sort of young(ish), and completely clueless, but I also had a shit ton of white wine with brunch. Good white wine. The kind of ice cold, biting Sancerre that is perfect on a google-degree day like today in LA.

So, what I'm saying is: easy. Easy on the drunk spastic girl with the amnesia.

But, just as an aside, I really do wish I knew the name of the chick who played Jack Tripper's stalker cougar lady on Three's Company. She deserves some name recognition. She was totally ahead of her time.

I forget the name of the woman who played Grandma Walton, but I do recall that when she died in the mid-90s, her obit listed a "long time companion" or something like that.

Yep, Grandma Walton was a sweet old lesbian.

I always liked her.

jill alexander essbaum said...

I did NOT know she was a lesbian! Wow.

Um, did Grandpa Walton know about this?

jill alexander essbaum said...

OH, and according to the all-knowing Wikipedia, Grandma Walton was also an early devotee of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

I guess that makes HER the 5th Beatle...

Somehow, this piece of information is wilder than the bit about her being a lesbian.

Neil Ellis Orts said...

are you kidding? Grandpa Walton not only knew about it, but was the biggest fan.

you know how straight guys are.

Very good! Karen Grassle as Mama Ingalls.
