Well, I had another one lined up for today. But this, from Puzzleblogger Kevan Choset, at Volokh, was so good, I had to share it here.

An easy one. What do these actors have in common?

  • Warren Beatty

  • Kevin Costner

  • Clint Eastwood

  • Mel Gibson

  • Robert Redford

I have some guesses. But I’m staying mute – both here and there. Hint: based upon Choset’s history as Puzzleblogger: the correct answer likely has more to do with some mathematical or heuristic relationship of the names themselves, than a finer point of cinematic history.

Congratz to reader Andrew V., who got the final two actors who’ve won Best Director Oscars.

However, this is the last time I steal a trivia question from another blogger:

Is that it, Kevan – 5 actors who have won directing Oscars?

If so, I am gonna’ be sooooo mad. Easy is right: too frickin’ easy! I’ve been racking my brain this week, trying to find some mathematical or heuristic relationship between the actors’ names, birthdates, etc..
