You misspelled Chuck's name for the role for which he won Best Actor. I tried misspelling it but didn't choose the one you used. You also left the last syllable off of Col. Saito's name (but, of course, accepted the incomplete version before we could type the last two letters, so no harm, no foul). Otherwise great quiz.
