Isn't that a string of names the main character goes by at different times? I saw the movie but I'm a little hazy on the point - perhaps the movie was as well!

Johnny Guitar
Jonny Quest
Johnny Dangerously
Johnny English

Did we get a ruling on subtitles?...Austin Powers...

Since the one-named Harvey was accepted, I suppose the Shakespearean one-namers are also good:
Hamlet
Macbeth
Othello
Coriolanus
Cymbeline

That's assuming the ones with titles (e.g., "King" or "Caesar") or number suffixes (Richard III, Henry V) aren't acceptable.

Do we admit entries such as Jonathan Livingston Seagull and White Fang?

I don't think Jerry Maguire has been listed yet.

The role is listed in imdb as Johnny Kelly / Johnny Dangerously. That's good enough for me...
