It turned Stanley Kubrick's stomach as well, so he cut it from Full Metal Jacket.

What do George Clooney, Charlize Theron, Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Renee Zellweger, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Russell Crowe have in common?

This took me longer than I thought it would, but the one thing they have in common is that they all put on a lot of weight to play a specific role.

George Clooney, Syriana, 30 lb.
Charlize Theron, Monster, 30 lb.
Robert De Niro, Raging Bull, 60 lb.
Renee Zellweger, the Bridget Jones movies, 40 lb.
Sylvester Stallone, Cop Land, 40 lb.
Vincent D'Onofrio, Full Metal Jacket, 70 lb.
Russell Crowe, Body of Lies, 50 lb.

That's impressive, Lorna! Now, how about a new question?

Let's switch on the TV. In Medium, what is Alison DuBois's maiden name?

Same show...one of the three girls who play Allison and Joe's children is Russian by birth. Which one?

That sounds like a trick question, because the girl who plays the oldest daughter (Ariel) is named Sofia Vassilieva. But she was born in the US, the daughter of Russian immigrants.

But THIS ONE was born in Siberia:



Maria Lark, who plays Bridgett, the middle child. She was adopted by an American woman as an infant and brought back to the US.

Just to round things out, the youngest daughter, Marie, is played by twins, Miranda and Madison Carabello.

New question. One member of the Medium cast is a Juilliard graduate. Which one?

Jake Weber, one of those English actors who can sound more American than most Americans.

Back to movies for a moment. Genevieve Bujold and Holly Hunter both take off their panty hose in what two movies?

To be fair, Jake Weber seems to have lived in the US since his teens. I don't know what his "offstage" accent is like (when I saw him on Broadway, he was playing 5 Italian brothers in an Ayckbourn play).

May I ask for a clarification on the current question? The use of "both" suggests two movies in which both actresses appeared together. But they don't seem ever to have acted together. So, is it one movie for Hunter, and another for Bujold?
