I count at least 7 people who are credited with being in all 10 aired episodes of Westworld.

And I'm not strict on spelling at all; I just need to know who/what is is being ID'd. If I have any question, I'll pm you.

Aw, I was worried that might be the case. I had a feeling the penalty wouldn't be too high anyway, but if I'd thought for one second that nobody would say Thandie Newton, James Marsden, or Anthony Hopkins, I would have gone with one of them, who I was sure were right. I finally remembered Evan Rachel Wood's name about 3 hours after I submitted, and I couldn't remember which Hemsworth was in it (which is just as well -- he was also only in 8 episodes).

When I first saw the questions right after you posted them, I was really hoping this one was supposed to be actors who were on all 3 seasons of Deadwood. I had a couple good answers if it had been that.

Same! I landed on Ed Harris but shoulda gone with Thandie or Evan

And right on schedule, I plummet in the standings.

How can giving 6 right answers make me feel so dumb?
