I wasn't thinking of Jackson as a first name. Might of helped.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 04:41 GMT
I can't believe there's no famous John Jackson.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 04:50 GMT
Or The Famous Jett Jackson.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 05:06 GMT
Would have loved to see the Mighty Ducks listed as a role for Joshua Jackson. :)
Jun 11th, 2010 at 05:09 GMT
@Jelle: I just did a quick search of "John Jackson" and there is a reasonably famous one, although he goes by another name--Fabolous. Also, the real name of the early MTV host, J J Jackson, is John J Jackson.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 05:14 GMT
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't necessary to type "Jackson" as part of the answer.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 05:29 GMT
I wasnt sure who sang "Runnin on Empty" that didnt stop it from being stuck in my head for the duration of the quiz.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 08:04 GMT
No Keith Jackson, the legendary college football announcer?
Jun 11th, 2010 at 09:25 GMT
That sports section scuppered me, being an Englander....
Jun 11th, 2010 at 09:33 GMT
You may as well have called the sports category "US-centric Sports"
Jun 11th, 2010 at 09:39 GMT
What about the famous jazz trumpeter Jackson Jeffrey Jackson?
Jun 11th, 2010 at 09:39 GMT
The one sport one I got right was because I missed out the "r" when typing out the "Running on Empty" answer!
Jun 11th, 2010 at 12:47 GMT
accept last names only :) just kidding, good quiz
Jun 11th, 2010 at 13:08 GMT
Ugh, Joshua Jackson! I kept wanting to type in Peter.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 13:22 GMT
Thank you for not including Tavaris
Jun 11th, 2010 at 13:42 GMT
Feel free to make your own quiz where the sports section is filled with soccer and cricket stars.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 13:45 GMT
Fun quiz. But surprised you didn't include Scoop Jackson, prominent politician and frequent US Presidential hopeful in the 70s...and Keith Jackson, LONG-time sports broadcaster. Whoa, nelly!
Jun 11th, 2010 at 13:54 GMT
If you score less than 50% a message should pop up saying "You don't know Jack, son."
Jun 11th, 2010 at 14:05 GMT
lol - good one, ratface.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 14:15 GMT
A good stumper would have been Jackson Bostwick, who played Captain Marvel on the 70's Saturday morning TV program "Shazam"
Jun 11th, 2010 at 14:15 GMT
how many of you tried Ms. Jackson?
Jun 11th, 2010 at 14:20 GMT
Sad to see how few got Glenda Jackson. A great, versatile actress in a wonderful movie...
Jun 11th, 2010 at 15:31 GMT
Who are the 14 people who didn't get Michael Jackson??????
Jun 11th, 2010 at 15:32 GMT
@Bob91351 - Embarrassed that I didn't. Somehow coming after the previous director question, I read the clue for this one as looking for a director also. Duh. Got Mahalia, Shirley and Percy, though!
Jun 11th, 2010 at 15:44 GMT
Rest in peace king of pop
Jun 11th, 2010 at 16:32 GMT
It was funny how the comments complaining of the sports being too US-centric were voted up - only to see them voted down when the yanks came online.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 18:22 GMT
Way too much time for only having to type in a few names
Jun 11th, 2010 at 18:23 GMT
DrChang, I suspect it isn't very peaceful where he might be.
Jun 11th, 2010 at 19:32 GMT
how do you miss MJ
Jun 11th, 2010 at 20:07 GMT
what about 'Rampage' Jackson or 'Action' Jackson?
Jun 11th, 2010 at 20:57 GMT
I'm glad there was at least one person I knew, which was the entire reason I did this quiz-Percy. Hah!
Jun 11th, 2010 at 23:45 GMT
Having never watched American Idol finally cost me.
Jun 12th, 2010 at 01:43 GMT
A two-time Oscar winner in last place? Sad.
Jun 12th, 2010 at 02:22 GMT
i would've given this quiz 5 sporcles had it included the Famous Jett Jackson, even if just as a bonus! oh well, 5 sporcles for throwing me a bone with Shirley, Pollock, and Browne!
Jun 12th, 2010 at 03:16 GMT
The Lottery is an amazing short story.
Jun 12th, 2010 at 19:02 GMT
Was kinda hoping to see Colin Jackson in the sport section, a British hurdler from the late 80's/90s, he held the 110m world record for over 10 years and still holds the 60m record 16 years later.
Jun 12th, 2010 at 19:46 GMT
Jun 12th, 2010 at 21:03 GMT
if you didn't get the first one, you're not a human
Jun 12th, 2010 at 23:59 GMT
No Jackson Rathbone of Twilight Movies (Jasper) and Avatar: The Last Airbender (Sokka)??
Jul 16th, 2010 at 22:20 GMT
@Hope: Jackson Rathbone was not Sokka "the meat & sarcasm guy", he was Soh-ka "the stiff guy who threw his boomerang once & otherwise accomplished nothing."
