QUIZ: How many actors can you name?

Name Dropping is a movie trivia game unlike any other. It’s challenging enough for movie buffs while being easy enough for the average moviegoer. How does our game accomplish this? It’s all in the way we use the names of Hollywood’s most famous and not-as-famous actors.

With this in mind, we wanted to test your knowledge of the names of actors whose faces are more recognizable than their names. If you’ve been following us on social media, then this quiz should be a breeze. If not, then you’d better buckle up!

    I loved Glenne Headly in “The Night Of”. Some very talented actors on this list whose names should be more household known.
