Let’s play a game called Who The Hell Am I? In this game, you get 10 clues to guess the name of a famous person. These clues are numbered countdown-style, 10 to 1, with the first clue numbered 10. Your score is determined by the highest numbered clue that evokes the correct answer.
At the end of the list you can click a link for the answer. However this link is numbered zero, so if you haven’t figured out the answer by the time you click it, you get no points. For as they say, cheaters never prosper.
And by the way, No Googling!
Note: The final clue provides the real name. But your task is to guess the name for which this person was commonly known.

9: I was called a great actor by my confreres, yet none of the bastards ever nominated me for an Oscar.
