"Jack Sparrow," eh? I think we all know there should be a "Captain" in there somewhere. ;)

It's funny I was thinking of Roberta Sparrow before I got that one. And then Donnie Darko ended up being one of the other answers.

Watch Michael Bolton and Andy Sandberg sing epically about Jack Sparrow and it will be forever stuck in your head.

I grudgingly learned Michael Bolton actually has vocal talent.

Thought it was Diego. I could quote his most famous (and repeated) line verbatim, sans the correct first name.

Well, that sort of misses the point if verbatim doesnt it. "I could repeat it word for word, just using different words" :D

I didn't know it was Jacques Clouseau. I confused it with Jacques Cousteau, who is a real person. That was lucky.

Well, it is "Movie Characters by Last Name," and I'd say a solid majority of movie characters are fictional.

Jake LaMotta shouldn't be in this category, imo. While "LaMotta" is an easy clue, it's a curious choice to include a real life character from a biopic when there are tens of thousands of fictional characters from which to choose.

Need a movie hint. In my head, Dufresne does not sound like Do-Frayne. It sounds more like Do-Frez-Knee.

For some reason, I could not remember Rocky. (ok maybe cause I've never seen it) I was stuck with the distinct impression it should sound like Rico. Rico Balboa sounds like a nice fellow.

Erm... what about Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr Ripley?

Played by Matt Damon no less.

Am I missing something here?
