Anyway, Shakespeare? Remember now Gren doesn't read books, so I dunno about that. Shakespeare might not be his thing. I don't even know who this Christine person is. Anyone? ("IMDb? Me? Come on, I'm lazy.")
Christina Pickles (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Pickles,+Christina)is best known to me as Ross and Monica's mom on Friends, but she played Romeo's mom in William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet.

Maybe it's something along the lines of a 'Six Degrees...' kind of thing that connects the people? Vinnie Jones was in 'Snatch' with Brad Pitt who was in 'Fight Club' with Meat Loaf, etc., etc...

Maybe the connecting people are all in Being John Malkovich

I actually played around with that centered around Malkovich (instead of Kevin Bacon) and didn't get anywhere particularly useful. (Which, frankly, doesn't mean too much :roll: )

The IMDb logo in the picture may hint that the answer requires some knowledge we likely won't have, but is accessible through the IMDb.

Or maybe gren just likes the IMDb logo.

I "PM"'d with a possible answer. There is an actor who has appeared with each of the people pictured (in different films). He may even have been mentioned in one of the messages above...

I assume you mean Brad Pitt. I'm not sure why that would be the answer to the riddle, though ... That doesn't make for a particularly satisfying solution. Is it Brad's place?

There's a riddle in the first post on page 1. The following replies are questions and speculation about it, but it seems to have dried up because there was speculation over an answer (which was incorrect)

Well if we're still looking for the person in the loo it is Brad Pitt (I believe).
Do we need the reasoning?

If reasoning required then:

Vinnie Jones in Snatch
Meatloaf in Fight Club
Antonio in Interview With The Vampire
Drew Barrymore in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Christina Pickle in Friends
Harrison Ford in Devil's Own
and :oops: don't know the other guy :oops: :oops: :oops:

It is not the right answer because all the friends have something in common, Brad Pitt has not been in a film with Brad Pitt, well apart from being the same person. But you've got part of it.

Billy Crudup from Almost Famous, Inventing the Abbots, and I forget what other movies he's in.

Well in that case the missing person could be any one of thousands of people from other Brad Pitt vehicles using Brad as the link between them - I'm lost and am going to shut up now!

Very possibly, but it's not just a guessing game. There is some logic to it. (It's not Anthony Hopkins)

Come on Pats, give me some credit. There is only one logical answer.

David Fincher he played a cameo in Being John Malchovich and directed Brad in Fightclub/Se7en, he probably had a cameo in that too
