Cillian Murphy only because he has an Irish name.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Sorry A.P. it s not Ashton.

14. After that TV show ended I found myself playing "mom" rather than a teenager as I guest starred on some shows and even did some voice over work. I probably had no clue about the next big success soon coming my way.

I guess my aim was true.

1. I was born 1902 in Grodno (what is now Belarus) and came to NYC when I was about nine years old.
2. As a young boy, I met a fellow who would be my lifelong friend who I worked closely with in my adult career. As a teen, I met another fellow who I worked closely with as well in my adult career.
3. In 1929, I revolutionized the organization of my business colleagues, with a pan-American focus.

4. During WWII, I was instrumental in helping the Office of Naval Intelligence's operation where I helped to watch out for German infiltrators and submarine-borne saboteurs.

5. I wasn't above having physical altercations with home grown Bundist Nazis here on American soil.

6. I wasn't formally in politics, but I had great influence in the affairs of one particular country, even to the point of being a close informal advisor to its President.

Well, for a fella who runs an illegal gambling joint this one is easy; Myer Lansky

Incidentally, my family knew a similar fella over here from the racing game. He also ran illegal gambling houses, battled with Sir Oswald Mosley's British Nazis and whose name Jack "Spot" Comer.

Good guess. Tommy! I had a feeling it was mob-related, but couldn't think of any names.

Almost 40 years ago, when I lived in LA, I befriended Butch Patrick (who as a child starred in The Munsters). His dad ran an illegal gambling joint named The Church. He even handed out business cards for it!

Tommy's got it! Bugsy Siegal and Lucky Luciano were Lansky's childhood friends. In return for springing Lucky from prison, Lansky's boys kept an eye out for German subs. In 1929, Lansky figured they could make more money by combining the Italian, Jewish and Irish mobs. The mob basically owned Batista in Cuba, letting Batista keep the proceeds from the slot machines, while the Cuban government subsidized the building of the mobs hotels there. The authorities were shocked that when he died his estate was only worth $57,000. Well...he knew more about offshore accounts than anyone at the time...and he had compromising pics of J. Edgar and Clyde.

The hilarious thing is that his grandson is demanding that the Cuban govt compensate the family for the loss of the hotels after the Revolution!

One last Lansky story--when Godfather III came out, he told Lee Strasberg who played the character based on Lansky, Hyman Roth, that he did a good job, but he should have made him more sympathetic.
