Okay, okay! Since I forgot to exclude Jared also, I'll let you two guess. But all three are excluded from Part 4, unless one of you does it first, then I would exclude myself.  ;D

2. Make It Stop or My Mom Will Shoot?

Written By: Indy Gent on 09/28/04 at 5:42 pm

Sorry, that's strike 2 on #2. :(
You're on the right track on the first part.
Think a venerable British actor and a Best actress Oscar winner from the 70s who had a recent comeback.

2. Make It Stop or My Mom Will Shoot?

10. Gone With The Wind And The Lion

I got that with no external or Googalishious help of any kind.

That'll be my only guess for this round, unless things get stuck and you throw it wide-open.
