Actors Lost in 2013 Quiz – guessing closed

With the death of Paul Walker over the weekend, I thought for this possibly last quiz of the year I’d have you remember the other actors that were lost this year.  I’m giving you their names I want you to put them in order of their age at death.  This would be an easy one to cheat one, RESIST the temptation 🙂  Leaderboard here.

Paul Walker (famous for Fast & Furious movies), Cory Monteith (played the popular Finn on television’s Glee), James Gandolfini (made his mark as The Sopranos mob boss), Annette Funicello (of Mickey Mouse Club fame), Jean Stapleton (the long suffering Edith Bunker on All in the Family), Jonathan Winters (a comedian who I’ll always remember as baby Mearth on TV’s Mork and Mindy), Dennis Farina (was in lots of films, but also spent a few years as a detective Law & Order), Eileen Brennan (this funny actress got around but I loved her as Goldie Hawn’s foil in Private Benjamin), Esther Williams (known as the Million Dollar Mermaid), Lee Thompson Young (first role on Disney’s The Famous Jett Jackson his last role as Rizzoli’s partner on TNTs Rizzoli & Isles)

  2. I would get like one of these right. Maybe. I know who was relatively old and who was relatively young, but beyond that . . . nothing.
