Who’s Older: Holly Hunter, William Hurt, or Spike Lee?

All three were born on March 20th sometime in the 1950s. Which is oldest, which is youngest, and which two were born in Georgia? 

Bonus points: match each to their first listed credit on the Internet Movie Database:

  • Kojak (TV series, 1977)
  • Last Hustle in Brooklyn (short film, 1977)
  • The Burning (horror feature, 1981)

(Aside: The Burning sounds like everyone’s terrible first job in Hollywood: “A former summer camp caretaker, horribly burned from a prank gone wrong,
lurks around an upstate New York summer camp bent on killing the
teenagers responsible for his disfigurement.”

Double-bonus trivia question: The Burning is also the first IMDB credit for which member of the cast of Seinfeld?)

And here are the answers:

Holly Hunter: born 1958 in Conyers, Georgia.  The Burning
Spike Lee, born 1957 in Atlanta, Georgia.  Last Hustle in Brooklyn
William Hurt, born 1950 in Washington, D.C.  Kojak

The Burning was also the first film credit for Jason Alexander, nine years before he became George Costanza in Seinfeld.

Give yourself one point for each correct answer.  If you got all eight points, you’re a movie genius. Seven points or less, you’re a bum.  That’s how it is in Hollywood.

Subtract 500 points if you didn’t match Spike Lee to Last Hustle in Brooklyn.
