I first want to thank all of you for your participation on this blog. I was surprised by quite a few who didn't make it into the competition. No Cagney, Edward G Robinson, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Errol Flynn, Warren Beatty and more on the men's side. Maureen O'Hara, Myrna Loy, Drew Barrymore, Sally Field, "Hanoi" Jane Fonda etc. are missing from from the woman's draw. At least Ben Afleck and J. Lo didn't make it in. I was surprised that Scarlett Jo and the Jessica's Biel and Alba did not get in.

I have posted the results of the first round as a separate entry as if included them here would it make this entry way too long. Here is the link to that entry http://www.sportsline.com/mcc/blogs
/entry/7949334/10096606 I have included my comments on the results of each match up. There were quite a few upsets to go along with the many one sided battles in both brackets. A few match ups though were very close and not decided till the very end. I was very surprised by more than a few of the winners.

Well here are the match ups for round 2. Some of these are going to be very interesting.

1)Tom Hanks vs. 33)Kevin Costner
