Can you fill in the last names of these actors, singers and comedians?

Choosing which name to be credited by is a bigger deal than it might seem. It’s the only name most of the public will know, whether it’s an actor’s real name or not. Some people choose an easily pronounceable moniker, some go with the most formal version of their given name and others use the nickname they go by with family and friends.

Everyone in this quiz falls in the latter category. They’ve all rejected the formal name Robert and have chosen to forever be known as Bob. You may recognize these famous Bobs but can you remember their last names?

12/13 Bobs. Missed the PBS painter. However, MeTV said I performed “perfectly”. Thought that would have been 13/13.
