9/11 Did not know Ed Ames was a crooner.

His voice is incredible. Check him out on YouTube. You have likely heard him and didn't know it was him.

●I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do

#4 may not have been Vic Damone, but Vic did appear on the Dick Van Dyke Show as singer "Rick Vallone".

Bennett is a degenerate. Coke addiction in his prime.

A "degenerate"? That seems a bit harsh. Not everybody handles depression the same (or in a safe) way, Mr. Judgy. I wonder what skeletons you're hiding?

11/11, almost missed the last one. I thought the guy on the right looked a little bit like Frankie. But the other looked nothing like Ricky. Process of elimination.

Loved Ed Ames moment on Johnny Carson!! A classic!!
Did anybody catch last Fridays: 5/10 {I think} episode of Ellen? She had on some actor who liked to throw axes. So he and Ellen had a throwing contest so he could win $$ for his charity. When I first laid on eyes on the target, I instantly remembered Ed Ames' JC appearance and Johnny mumbling something under his breath about a circumcision!
That was Jason Momoa. He played on Stargate Atlantis Game of Thrones and the movie Aquaman.
