Here was the challenge:


Role Playing 3

This online contest works almost the same way as the first and second Role Playing online contests. In the diagram below, each diamond represents a film title and each circle represents an actor. (Note: Throughout these rules, “actor” is used to mean either actor or actress.) Lines connect films with actors who appear in them, not necessarily in a leading role. Note that each film connects to at least two actors, and each actor connects to at least two films. All the films were released in the past 10 years, except for one that is scheduled for release later this year. None are shorts, documentaries, or made-for-TV movies, but some may have only been shown at film festivals.

The numbers in each diamond and circle indicate the number of letters in each word of the film’s title or in the actor’s first and last names. Unlike in previous contests, some names and titles are represented by a combination of numbers and small question marks; thus, for the actor at the top, “5,?” indicates a first name with five letters and a last name with any number of letters, while the top left film ("?,3,?”) has a three-word title in which the middle word has three letters.

There are five large question marks in the diagram, representing one actor and four film titles. These large question marks can represent any number of words of any lengths. The object of the contest is to identify the one actor and four film titles that are represented by these five large question marks.

To enter this contest, first read the detailed rules (see the link at the bottom of this page), then select the Enter Button below to view the entry form. In the “Contest Answer” box, list the five answers in any order. Complete all other required information, and choose Submit.
