2011 Celebrity Death Pool

#1 Post by knarf » 02 Dec 2010, 08:08

Each entrant selects 13 people that are listed in IMDb with at least one movie credit (TV movies and straight-to-video are acceptable, mini-series do not count, unless IMDb lists them as a TV movie) as an Actor, Actress, Director, Himself, or Herself. That should make quite a few politicians, athletes and musicians available as well.

PM the list to me between now and Dec. 31, with Death Pool or something similar in the subject. I will not read these until 2011, and will then post everyone's entries. I'm entering too, but I won't look at yours before I've settled on mine. If you want to make changes before the deadline, please send a complete list, and I'll go by the last one I receive. If someone you've picked dies before 2010 ends, its your responsibility to make the change, or they'll remain in your list for no value.

Your score for each accurate guess will be 120 minus the age in full years of the deceased. If there's any conflict, I will go by the birthdate listed at IMDb. If that isn't present for some reason, I'll try to find it elsewhere.

Deaths qualify as being in 2011 by whatever timezone the person dies in. This should only matter on January 1 and December 31.

Is this how you play this game? I find it kind of morbid, but I like it better when I think you're actually trying to keep some people alive via personal bad luck.

Nick Nolte and Leonard Nimoy are the only ones I picked that were multiples, and only once over...

Either this is going to be my year, or it really really really won't.

I met him at the All Star game in 2009. He's a tough sumbeach and I doubt he will be leaving us any time soon. (johnny Bower, I'm not so sure of...) He also asked me if I was effing retarded. The highlight of my hockey career. :lol:
