What celebrity would you most like to see give a clue?

Post by dhkendall »

I think there was a thread like this on the old board, but not here.

What celebrity would you like to see give a clue that hasn't already?

Personally, I think the Mythbusters would dovetail nicely with this type of J! fan (the boardie type)

Second choice are Penn and Teller (well, Penn, mainly ;) ) but I have a nagging suspicion they already gave a clue before.

Michael Winslow.

He could load the clues with the old sound effects without even having to find the tape, is all I'm sayin'...

They should have a category where the clues alternate being read by Oprah Winfrey and the fast-talking guy from the old Micro Machines commercials, just to see if it makes the contestants' heads explode.

*ETA-after a quick google search to make sure the Micro Machines guy was still alive, I see that he is actually the same John Moschitta, Jr. that Rex nominated above. I'd say something about great minds thinking alike, but given Rex's pedigree that might be giving myself way too much credit. :)

Oh, darn, thought this thread was about which celebrity we'd most like to see GET a clue...

I believe he holds the distinction of being the only person to be on the $XX,000 Pyramid as both a contestant and a celebrity.

Forget her reading a clue, I just want to see her, period!

An acquaintance of mine was Gillian Anderson's personal assistant for a time. I have an autographed photo of Ms. Anderson that's inscribed "I'll get outta here somehow!" (I had suggested, via the assistant, some options from getting from L.A. to Vancouver shortly after 9/11 -- none of which panned out, particularly because everything on Amtrak was sold out.)

At any rate, if John Moschitta Jr. is unavailable, I suggest Merle "Ian Shoales" Kessler, who talks almost as fast.

I took care of Gillian Anderson's body double's daughter once (she was also the daughter of one of Gillian Anderson's cast mates -- in fact, her parents met on the X-Files set).

Define, if you would, "took care of".

David Duchovny did a clue in a game this week. :oops:

I'd like to see a celebrity never ever give another clue, unless the clue is them standing there and saying, "Who am I?"

Rather than define, I'll qualify: in camp counselor capacity.
