In Rick Riordan’s book “The Last Hero”, the first book in “The Heroes of Olympus” series which is follow-up series to “Percy Jackson and Olympians” series (which two have been made into movies: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010), and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013)), that takes classic Greek and Roman mythology and updates to modern times and the gods are still having affairs with humans producing demigod humans, in Camp Half-Blood counselor Chiron’s office (yup, the mythological centaur and trainer of heroes), he has a wall of fame of demigods of which some of which are famous movie stars. Of the fallowing list of actors and actress would you suspect to be demigods and on Chiron’s wall? (Has, you have to think of these as god. And in true Greek and Roman mythological tradition, the top six males and the top six female vote getters make the wall.

To discover the secrets of this list, try to sneak in here. (Hint: long careers and memorable movies.)

Added. Morgan Freeman knocked Will Smith off. I’m keeping the list even with 17 males and 17 females. Any more males knocks a male off the list.

I’m keeping the 17 males to 17 females even on the list. I got 17 males and any more good male suggests knocks a male off the list. You may want to think as to which male should be removed. Warning: the reason I put Dennis Quaid on the list is that he seams to keep coming back when it seams no more movies are being made with him. Just like Marlene Dietrich kept coming back after someone, 3 times said her career was dead.

I need 2 more females. Any suggestions?

There are some younger actresses who may not have as much of a body of work as some of the older ones but who could be strong contenders...

Are Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, or Scarlett Johansson on the list? I'm too lazy to check.

Hathaway is on there. Just added Johansson, probably add Berry. But which woman to remove?

Elizabeth Taylor
Tilda Swinton.

I would say you can easily take Emma Watson out.

Agree that Watson should go.

Edit: At risk of being lynched by the Boomers, and the many fans of Classic Movies on here, I would toss all the actors and actresses on the list who are either dead or retired, and include the likes of Tom Hanks, Will Smith (was on there but removed), Michael Douglas, Rachel Weisz, Russell Crowe, Berry & Johansson (as suggested earlier)... and perhaps a few others whose names don't come to mind right now...

As much as I love Peter Lorre,( huge fan who thinks he out acted many of the stars he was on screen with) , let’s keep this to the marquee named actors whose names appear before or above the title. And an Oscar or two will help with long careers. I’m still having trouble why I’m keeping Bette Davis on.
