Friday Funday Trivia: From the Gridiron to Tinseltown

In honor of the Super Bowl, this week's quiz features 3 montages of 15 photos of football players who ventured into acting. You have to correctly identify the performer. As I was on the child star quiz last year, I'm going to be a little lenient on this one too. If you are unable to come up with the athlete/performer's name, you can still earn half credit if you can at least identify one of their famous roles. For example, if I posted a photo of Bob Golic and you couldn't recall his name, something along the lines of the following would be acceptable:

That's the guy who played Mike Rogers on "Saved by the Bell: The College Years"

To enlarge the montages, click on them. Below the montages are the point values for each photo (40 pts total).

If you are a Friday Funday Trivia virgin about to be touched for the very first time, please read the following rules before playing:

* The game is pub style so looking up the answers, using friends/family for help, etc. is not allowed.

* If you are the only player to correctly identify a photo, you earn 5 bonus points. The first player to submit their final answers to me will earn 2 bonus points. 

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to no later than Friday night (2/3) at 11:59 PM EST. The answers will be posted on Saturday, Feb. 4th.

Not an official rule: If you have no clue about a photo, feel free to come up with an intentionally funny answer. Although you won't get credit for a correct answer, you'll get a thumbs up from me for originality, execution, and showmanship. What can I say, I love to be entertained and I'll take it any way I can get it!

Note about one of the football players turned actors. Because of infamous incidents involving this man, people have very strong opinions about him. However, I do ask that you refrain  from any incendiary commentary. Let's keep Friday Funday Trivia fun. Thank you in advance. :-)
