Movie Actors Quiz

It's been a while since I threw one of these quizzes up, but I rewatched a movie over the weekend and realized I'd forgotten that Kiefer Sutherland, John Cusack, and Richard Dreyfuss were all in it.

I'm going to list three actors who were all in a movie together. These are all movies you've likely seen, and actors I'm fairly sure you know. How many of these movies can you name?
(answers in the comments)

  1. Nicholas Cage, Sean Penn, and Eric Stoltz
  2. Eric Stoltz, John Lithgow, and David Strathairn
  3. David Straithairn, Dan Aykroyd, and Mary McDonnell
  4. Mary McDonnell, Drew Barrymore, and Patrick Swayze
  5. Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, and Tom Cruise
  6. Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr, Matthew McConaughey
  7. Matthew McConaughey, Harvey Keitel, and Bill Paxton
  8. Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Ed Harris
  9. Donald Sutherland, Kevin Spacey, Morgan Freeman
  10. Kiefer Sutherland, John Cusack, and Richard Dreyfuss

Okay, here are the answers:


Nicholas Cage, Sean Penn, and Eric Stoltz were in Fast Times at Ridgemont High together.


Eric Stoltz, John Lithgow, and David Strathairn was all actors in Memphis Belle, a great movie, although only Eric Stoltz was in the crew. I could have listed Sean Astin, Matthew Modine, Billy Zane, or Harry Connick Jr., but I thought that would bee to easy.


David Straithairn, Dan Aykroyd, and Mary McDonnell were together in Sneakers, one of my favorite movies. Also Robert Redford and River Phoenix, but again - too easy.


Mary McDonnell, Drew Barrymore, and Patrick Swayze were all in Donnie Darko, a headtrip of a movie from the 80s.


Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, and Tom Cruise all played in the 80s adaptation of The Outsiders, which I haven't seen in a long long time. I'd forgotten what a good cast that movie had.


Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr, and Matthew McConaughey were all in Tropic Thunder. I rewatched that movie on Netflix recently, and I think it's better upon a second viewing.


Matthew McConaughey, Harvey Keitel, and Bill Paxton acted together in the submarine movie U-571.


Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, and Ed Harris were all NASA in the Tom Hanks movie Apollo 13.


Donald Sutherland, Kevin Spacey, and Morgan Freeman were part of the amazing cast in the movie Outbreak.


Lastly, the movie that prompted me to write this quiz. Kiefer Sutherland, John Cusack, and Richard Dreyfuss were all in Stand By Me, and I think I'd forgotten that any of them were even in that movie.


So - How many did you get?

You meant that Donnie Darko was from the 90s, right?

I am sorry to have missed all these posts. I stopped using a feed reader and just use Facebook, but you do not post your blog on there, haha.
