Here's a movie related question that my cousin posed to me and I can't figure it out. Can any of you???

Sean played him first, Ben played him most recently, who played him inbetween?

At first I thought the Tom Clancy series of films but Connery and Affleck played different characters.

Has anybody any ideas??

I checked IMDB (busy day at work) and I couldn't find any roles that both Sean Connery and Ben Affleck shared. They did both play characters named "O'Bannion", Affleck's finest role IMO. I found that there were four actors who played an "O'Bannion" between 1959 and 1993 and none really that famous. Unless I am barking up the wrong tree, I can't really figure out the point of the question.

Does "Sean" and "Ben" necessarily mean "Connery" and "Affleck"?

Really changes the options if it could be other people.

It might also depend on your definition of "played". Posted Image

Sean Bean? Ben Stiller? Sean Young? Ben Kingsley? Hmm...
He obviously misinterpreted what it means to "be bullish."

Could it have something to do with Jennifer Lopez?

Sean "P. Diddy" Combs
(Somebody?)
Ben Affleck

In case I'm wrong, there's many more Seans: Sean Astin, Sean Penn, Sean Patrick Flannery, Sean Hayes

The three "major" Bens have been mentioned: Ben Affleck, Ben Stiller, Ben Kingsly.

Good questions - I took it that it was a certain movie role/character that Sean, then someone else, then Ben played.

Has me stumped anyway...

It probably is the Jack Ryan films, your cousin must have mixed up Sean Connery with Jack Ryan, Connery played Capt.Ramius in Red October, Alec Baldwin was Ryan,
Ben Affleck was recently Ryan in Sum of All Fears and Harrison Ford played him twice inbetween.

Please disregard this post if I'm completely wrong, thank you!Posted Image

AdrianOC,

Did you ever find out if your cousin had the question wrong?

See, this is the true brain teaser. He wants to see how long we will keep asking before giving up. Posted Image

One particular part of the teaser that begs questioning is, "played him". Played who? J.Lo would be out of the question since it refers to a "him" not "her".

I'm thinking there might be a play on the word "played"...It reminds me of a similar brain teaser.

Q: Who played for the Red Sox and the Yankees, on the same day and during the same game?
A:
The Organist...Get it! He played "music" for both teams."
