In related news, R.I.P. last night to Dick Clark - who bears no relation to Dave Clark of the Dave Clark Five.

100%...50% knowledge...50% guessing.

@Karmacode: Good for you! I never intended this quiz (or its sequel) to be impossible, just a little tricky. :) I'm the kind of guy who feels good when he gets a lot right on a quiz!

I still find it very difficult to believe that someone who looks like Ron Howard had anything to do with making someone who looks like Bryce Dallas Howard.

I think that it could be a good sitcom with Katy and Matthew Perry...I'd watch it...

I know way too much about celebrities. Got them all, and the only two I guessed on were the Evanses and the Livelys, but I was pretty sure all the others left *weren't* related, so it was really just process of elimination. Fun quiz. I'd like to see one where all the last names are different (Shirley Maclaine/Warren Beatty, Keith Carradine/Martha Plimpton).

Sadly - Chris Brown and James Brown have other things in common...

I got 9 I knew for sure and another 8 with (semi) logical guessing. But I missed the last three. :(

I don't know if I would consider Omar Gooding a celebrity. I know "Wild and Crazy Kids" and "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" were both all time great hits but that was quite a few years ago.
May 10th, 2012 at 21:13 GMT
Thanks for the publish, Sporcle! :) @Guinevere: I do have a sequel out with pairs that don't share last names, so maybe try that one on for size. (Related Celebrities II). I hope you all enjoy the quiz!

Anyone else find that, in several cases, the correct choices were the ones where you had only heard of one of the celebrities? I couldn't pick Eric Lively, Scott Evans, Omar Gooding, or Oliver Hudson out of a lineup.
May 11th, 2012 at 14:03 GMT
Surprised not to see Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal (sp?) Good quiz - missed the Evanses and Francos.
May 11th, 2012 at 21:32 GMT
I'd consider Omar Gooding a celebrity. He's an actor that surpassed his early notoriety as a game show host since the 90s. He had a long run on the TV series Smart Guy, as well as a role in the movie Baby Boy. He's also been in over a dozen TV series. You'd recognize him considering he looks just like his brother Cuba just younger. And Eric Lively has been acting since the 90s & is basically the reason why any of us even know who Blake is. He was on shows like The L Word & was in the 99 American Pie. He was also in a Pink video.

The Chris Evans mentioned here is clearly not the Chris Evans who is famous in the UK.

I saw Tyne daly and immediately clicked it thinking she would be listed with Tim Daly... she wasn't.

It's hard to answer when you don't know who Omar Gooding, Eric Roberts, Stella McCartney, Chris Evans, Scott Evans, Eric Lively, Oliver Hudson, Dave Franco, and Ben Savage are.
May 15th, 2012 at 21:57 GMT
Redd Foxx and Jamie Foxx would be a good one.
