How well do you know your famous Andys?

We tracked down the most popular Andys for you to I.D.!


It can be hard to keep some of your favorite celebrities straight when they seem to share the same name. Think about how many times you meant to say you liked Chris Evans as Captain America, only to say you liked Chris Pine instead. It can be confusing, but it's also so satisfying when you have all of your celebrity ducks in a row.

This got us thinking about all of the different celebs and characters named "Andy" — and now we want to see if you can tell which Andy is which.

In other words… how well do you know your famous "Andys" and "Andrews"?

There's no fooling you – you know these Andys at a glimpse, and can keep them all straight in any conversation. Nicely done!

11/15. Not familiar with US currency and never watched "The Office", "Hill Street Blues" or "The Breakfast Club."
DerekBird Angie 35 months ago
out of those I am only familiar with The $20 bill.

I got 11/15 too, but the $20 wasn't one of them. The ones I missed were 3 people/shows I'd never watched, and Snoopy's relative I never heard of.

13/15. Never knew Snoopy had a brother and never watched "The Office".
Snoopy must have had more than one brother. I chose "cousin"because the brother I recall lived in the desert and was named Spike.

You're pretty good about keeping all of your Andys in a row. Good work!

Being honest, I don't know most of these Andy fellas LOL

9. One of the worst humans who ever lived.
11. My only wrong answer. Not a fan of either version of The Office. The middle choice is a current Cincinnati Bengals quarterback.
15. Would love to finally watch his primetime specials, especially Mr. Rooney Goes to Dinner.

I am annoyingly partial to the great Andy Partridge of the British band, XTC.
